This restaurant's specialty is pizzas made in its brick wood-burning oven. The entire traditional Napoli pizza-making process is done in an open kitchen and can be seen by the customers. The oven is heated up to 400-500 degrees Celsius with longan wood or charcoal. The chef spreads a layer of tomato or basil sauce on the rolled thin dough before adding various ingredients and sprinkling it with plenty of mozzarella cheese. Pizza flavors include Hawaiian, Vegetarian, Salami and Meat (seafood/chicken/bacon). After preparation, the chef puts the pizza onto a long shovel and sticks it into the brick oven. While it's inside, he keeps turning the shovel to ensure the pizza gets evenly baked, and the result is crispy, delicious hand-made pizza. The restaurant also serves all kinds of spaghetti, waffles, salads, German Eisbein pickled ham hocks, sausages, sirloin steaks and roasted spring chicken. --By Uvia Chang, translated by Angel Pu
A. Delos Pizza's chef prepares an Italian pizza.
B. Margarita Pizza (NT$130 for 8 inches, NT$199 for 12 inches) has crispy crust that tastes a bit like cookies with the mild flavor of flour. With a big bite, you can enjoy tomatoes, basil and cheese mixing in your mouth. Panini Smoked Chicken (NT$89), also known as an Italian Hot Sandwich, is made with ciabatta, vegetables, smoked chicken and cheese--a simple but delightful meal.
C. For Basil Seafood Spaghetti (NT$230), you can choose penne rigate, squid ink pasta, or risotto (extra charge for gratin style). All dishes come as a la carte orders, but one can opt for the "A" Set (add NT$49) with soup and beverage, or the "B" Set (add NT$69) with soup, beverage and bread.
