--By Dionysus, translated by Cara Steenstra

Since 1988, over 230 branches of Romano's Macaroni Grill have opened around the world. Now, it has finally set foot in Asia, establishing itself in Taipei's trendy XinYi District. Walk through the red brick archway entrance and, on the right, you will find Macaroni's popular Italian-style bar, which draws many customers with their unique "Leaning Bellini" cocktail. Pass through the seating area and you will see the brightly-lit, semi-open kitchen where all the tasty food is prepared, complete with tempting fragrances wafting through. Take a look at the menu and you will notice that, apart from the more familiar Italian fare, there is the Mozzarella alla Caprese (NT$380), the Filet Padano (NT$930), and the handmade Lobster Ravioli (NT$580), which contains lobster, asparagus, shrimp, chopped tomatoes and a specially-made pasta with lemon cream sauce. All these dishes come highly recommended by the chef and are not easily found in other Italian eateries. The Insalata Rossa (NT$380) is a hearty dish but only contains six grams of fat. The dessert specials here are the Lemon Passion Cake (NT$260) and the creamy, smooth Panna Cotta (NT$220); both are well worth sharing with a friend. Apart from enjoying the great food here, Macaroni also has nightly live opera performances, adding another element of Italian culture to your dining experience.
