A lot of people have come to us, looking for recommendations of restaurants to have a romantic date night here in Taipei, yet affordable and not too formal, and of course, serving delicious food. And when I think of romantic, I ALWAYS think of Italian restaurants, and this little Italian pizzeria in Taipei ticks off all the right boxes. It’s been our go-to for casual date nights and I can highly recommend it.
Located in the center of Daan District, right behind Carnegie’s, sits this little Italian gem serving some of the most mouth-watering pizzas I’ve ever had. Don’t be fooled by the unassuming exterior (it’s not the most Insta-worthy, I know) but wait until you get your lips on those authentic Italian pizzas waiting inside.
The interior is cozy and has a casual Italian feeling to it, and the open-plan kitchen allows customers to have front row seat to the pizza-making process. A large wood-fired oven is used, ensuring you’ll be served with the highest quality pizzas. Oggi’s is also one of the few restaurants in Taiwan that is certified by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (Now that’s as authentic as pizza can get!).
On their menu you will find a variety of pizza bases to choose from, including Napoletana, Romana, Taiwan Wheat, Napoletana Bianca, and also some creative pizzas topped with sweet ingredients such as custard and chocolate. The Husbands joined us in this Italian food feast, so we had an entire table filled with pizza just waiting to be devoured. We ordered an old favorite of ours, the Prociutto Rucola, topped with parma ham, arugula, mozzarella, and also created our own pizza using some of our favorite ingredients; artichoke, black olives, pepperoni and ham on a Napolitano base. Both of these were delicious and we can highly recommend both. We also had the Salsiccia, topped with home-made sausage, frialielli, brocolli, mozarella cheese cream and olive oil, and the Fiorentina, made with bacon, spinach, egg, mozzarella cheese.

We’ve spent countless date nights here and never leave feeling unsatisfied; the food, the service and the ambiance are always up to standard and we enjoy dining “Italian-style”. Order our favorite, the Prociutto Rucola, and ask for some balsamic dipping on the side.
