This is a delightful cafe at the rural edge of Hsinchu City with a menu featuring pizza and other Italian favorites. Its colorful and casual style likely appeals to the students at two nearby universities, but its food is seriously good, much of it cooked in an outdoor, wood-fired oven. We ordered several different pizzas, including a clam pizza, and they were all excellent. The service was good - I think an English-speaking diner would be ok. It would be fun to come back in the evening - there is a bar (of sorts) and I suspect the place is charmingly lit.

We were having dinner together with two Italian guys and they made good comments about the pizza, a bit reluctant to say that it was very good. However, one of them ask for tiramisu after that and started saying it was like the one that cooks "la mia mamma"! It was enough for me to order one for me. So I can now say by myself: bravissimo!

I walked past this restaurant earlier in the day, and was pretty impressed with the menu, so came back to try it out for dinner.I ordered Gorgonzola Geese Gratin and then the tri-colour (Italian Flag) pizza. The Gorgonzola Geese Gratin was accompanied by four absolutely perfect pastry puffs. The gratin itself had little of the titular Gorgonzola and a lot of chopped egg in it. Canât recommend, but oh the puffs!The pizza was just about as perfect a pizza as Iâd ever eaten. Well done kitchen, especially as it was very busy on the night I was there.Staff were a mixed bag, but enough good to outweigh the ordinary, and as I said it was very busy, so no points deducted on that account.

The reviews would have put me off. Glad they didn't. I was with a party of 8. We ordered a bunch of appetizers (salad, cheese etc). All good. The bread was a little stale but compared to the hotel food we had been eating all week it was fine. Then we shared pizzas and steak. The pizzas were excellent. Especially the squid ink one. Really tasty. The steak was also perfectly cooked and tender. Wrapped it up with a tiramisu. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Quirky decorations (obsession with owls) and attentive service made it a perfect end to the week away from home. It's a shortish walk back up the hill to the lakeshore hotel gives an opportunity to walk off some of the carbs.
