The food are really delicious, but overprice. All food are very fresh and the pasta were all made by hand, as in fresh pasta.

It seems the mixed reviews are whether or not this place serves italian food. I live in the NY area, which is well known for their italians and, thus, italian food globally. I have been to italy and have easily dined at many michelin starred italian restaurants globally....this place is italian. A nice surprise in hsinchu.

Things to note:
1/ food is pricey for the area and taiwan
2/ food does reflect italian cooking and quite good
3/ portions can be small
4/ waiters tend to explain too much, and not always correctly

Awesome Italian inspired food with seasonal and local ingredients. The restaurant chooses not repeating Italian food in Taiwan that makes perfect sense--there is no "Italian food" per se anyways, as the cuisine is too diverse it is very different even from nonna to nonna in the same area.

250NT for a glass of 75ml very good quality Barolo is not a rip off. People need to understand what they are drinking!

After many good review and some friends suggest me this restaurant i went to try.
i was so deluse for the quality of food , staff didn't speak in english, table so small.
Appetaizer :3 slice of parma ham ( honest is illegal italian parma ham by the way) dry and very small change 350 ntd and the waiter insist was 30 gr with focaccia too dry looks like the day before after the pasta with lamb ragout was boiled pasta and on top the ragout so no taste.
after this 2 dishes i decide to ask the bill and change restaurant.
i cant understand how the people can say really italian food maybe they never been in italy.
In Hsinchu NO REAL ITALIAN RESTAURANT.
Very disappointed.
I miss italian food.

I brought my best friend's parents who came from Germany to the so called best Italian restaurant in Hsinchu but they were disappointed. The food was more like Taiwanese-Italian fusion. And the wine was certainly overpriced.

Also, the staff talked way to much when giving introduction to our meals. We just lost our patience and appetite after all the upselling process. Good service need to attend different customers needs.
