The new kid on the block at Taipei East District (Zhongxiao Dunhua MRT station area) is this new Italian homey pizza bar straight from Italy.
The owner Paolo, a Taiwanese born grew up in Italy all his life came back to hometown country Taiwan, however it’s like how most of the story goes: not surprisingly he miss the IT food he was up-bring, went back to Italy in search for those memory ingredients and brought chef Beppe to Asia starting and sharing the IT food to Taipei.
My friend is a member of YELP Elite, for readers in the US I believe you know what YELP is, for those who don’t, it’s a food community app that anyone can upload photos, write reviews of food&beverages of restaurants, share food loves with family and friends, and of course not to step into unexpected restaurants. (Here’s my YELP account, currently empty, but I’ll be sure to update my foodie review 🙂 )
Once a month YELP held their YELP Elite meet up trying new food in town and mingle with the neighborhood, I tagged along as each member can bring a friend, also I wanted to say hi to Yelp Taipei Community Manager as I’ve realized from Facebook (we have so many mutual friends) that we were kindergarten classmate, ha. It’s funny the first thing she asked me was “Were you that Tiffany that I hit a lot back that” “Uh…..no?” (I mean, I am not a person who would get others bully me, especially not physically!) Funny, those childhood memories.
The price range of the pizza as I checked from fellow yelpers is NT390, I am not sure the portion and the pizza size it means up here, as we had this super-duper-delicious-long pizza as can see from the photos. There’s a mix of pizza up on that long pizza, not sure really how many are up there, but 8 are written on the menu, so I assume we probably had that much as well. Sorry, my memories bad. Oh I must pointed out, the pizza is being handmade after ordering and fresh out of the oven as we can smell it within a step distance. The ingredients are tasty and fresh, especially have my favorite arugula! We had a Q&A questions of Italy game, and the winner from each table was able to make their own pizza and bring it home.
I’d really recommend to come here as it’s homey chill with good food, in the city hub, if gonna bar hop next, it’s the right place to start the night.
