Walk from Taiwan to Italy

    In a city known for amazing Asian cuisine, chefs Giorgia Pappalardo and Patrick Benedetti bring the magic of Italy’s rolling hills to Taipei in a big way. Hailing from Bologna and Tuscany, Pappalardo and Benedetti survived some of the toughest kitchens in Europe en route to Asia. Now, in the misty tropics of Taiwan, they inject local ingredients into traditional Italian dishes to deliver bold, authentic flavors that would make their grandmothers proud.

    With two locations (Dazhi and the East District) that feature a modern and upscale decor, signature pizzas and pastas with that authentic Italian taste can be enjoyed without taking the 6,000+ mile flight. If you’re looking for more than just a savory Italian meal with friends or an intimate date over homemade pasta (cue Lady and the Tramp), they also offer top-notch cooking classes and private dining experiences.
