Recognized by 𝘎𝘢𝘮𝘣𝘦𝘳𝘰 𝘙𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘰, 𝗔𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗼 𝗙𝗼𝗿𝗻𝗼 is my favourite Italian restaurant in town. The menu perfectly balances authenticity and creativity, often giving a refreshing spin on traditional recipes. They often organize activities such as the weekend Aperitivo (the pre-dinner sip&snack I've been dearly missing ever since moving away from Italy). Recently this has been taken over by the Antico Mercato, a space for creatives to sell their crafts and where you can enjoy @congioia 's delicious homemade pastries!

𝗦𝗼𝗹𝗼 𝗣𝗶𝘇𝘇𝗮 𝗡𝗮𝗽𝗼𝗹𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗮 has the most authentic, delicious (and affordable) pizza I've tried in Taipei. They keep costs low with the fast food vibes interior, and as the name implies they only serve pizza plus some appetizers like sliced hams and 𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘪𝘯𝘪 (or is it 𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘪𝘯𝘦? The debate is on). Nevertheless, the quality ingredients and highly skilled team of 𝘱𝘪𝘻𝘻𝘢𝘪𝘶𝘰𝘭𝘪 ensure you will be delivered a great pizza every time. Another great recommendation from @congioia!

Desserts which are both delicious and healthy? Yes, please. @congioia makes the magic happen with her cakes and pastries, imparting an original gluten-free spin on authentic Italian recipes. I highly recommend the sampling box for starters, which includes all her classics. Can't rave enough about the 𝘢𝘭𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘥 𝘬𝘪𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘴 (traditional Sicilian almond pastry) and the 𝘣𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘢 (white chocolate cake). I'm craving them just thinking about it 🤤. You'll have a hard time believing sweets this good are actually gluten-free (and I've had a lot, and none come even close, trust me)!

    PAI PAI CANNOLI is a window to Sicily, and a true hidden gem in Taipei. I never thought I'd get to treat myself to 𝘤𝘢𝘯𝘯𝘰𝘭𝘪 this far from Italy. But from the flaky fried pastry to the sinfully smooth and thick homemade 𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘰𝘵𝘵𝘢 cream filling, every bite tasted authentic. If you're curious about sampling Italian desserts which are not a tiramisù, or just want a delicious sweet snack, I highly recommend.
