IL Volo Pizza prides itself in its Italian-style thin-crust pizzas and attractive wood-fired brick oven imported from Italy. Located near Civic Square (People's Park), this eatery offers 10 different pizzas (NT$220-300), homemade lasagne, soups and salads. The most popular pizzas here are the vegetarian Mushroom Tomato, Seafood, and hearty, spicy Italy Chili Cabanossi. --By Li-Han Lin, translated by Angel Pu
A. The Italy ChiIli Cabanossi pizza is topped with San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, jalapeno peppers, red onions and IL Volo's homemade spicy Italian sausage, which go well with the peppers and onions and add another layer of texture.
B. The simple decor features wooden tables and chairs, reminiscent of a cozy Italian neighborhood pizzeria. There is also a small patio for outdoor dining.
C. The open kitchen allows one to see the chef hand-tossing the pizza dough and making pizzas.
