PaPa Gio'






There're countless Italian restaurants here in Taipei,but only a few of them cook like a real Italian dish.I guess it might be weird for me to say that,since I haven't been to Italy so far.So I'm not here to judge like a pro,don't take this too serious,cuz you know,I'm just a normal teenage girl,writing a food blog during her leisure time.

My perception of a good and authentic Italian food is from books and TV programs,like "No Reservation" by Anthony Bourdain,"Take Home Chef" by Curtis Stone,and some other shows by Jamie Oliver.Basically,I'm an Italian cuisine lunatic,being an outsider at the same time.

PaPa Gio' is definitely one of the TOP 3 Italian restaurant in Taipei.I love everything there!Having a meal there is like going to see a circus,they'll never let you down!My friend and I got a parma ham with sweet melon for appetizer.I didn't order that at PaPa Gio' before,but now I'm starting to worry that I'll keep ordering the same appetizer whenever I go there!

I also had a smoked duck breast risotto.That was truly an almost-perfect one!Since I was so immersed in that fantastic texture and aroma,I could barely chat with my friend,while I was having it.The smoked duck breast was just ok,because I don't like the fat on the sliced duck breast.Except that,the risotto was hard to describe how good it was.It was well-cooked and totally soaked up with balsamic sauce.

Their desserts are unquestionably exceptional.If you have no idea what to choose,a Tiramisu might be just right for you!I'd love to eat hundreds times of their Tiramisu,it's too good to take a pause when you're having it.This time I got a Crema Cotta.Cracking the crispy caramel was such a delightful sound to hear and the texture was unparalleled!

I've been to PaPa Gio' for several times and I just can't and won't get tired of their amazing dishes!How badly I want to go there every weekend!Hahah!
