Ecco Italian Cuisine original branch
is situated near National Cheng Chi University in MuZha
and has always been very popular with university students
in the area. Now, the owners have opened a branch between
Breeze Center and Sogo Department Store. It continues
to please the office crowds and shoppers in the area
with its reasonable prices and regular menu innovations.
Ecco constantly brings new ideas to the table, such
as the chef's own unique creation, the Fruit Pasta (NT$90)
with kiwi fruit, apples, melons and oranges--a wonderful
combination of fruity fragrances and tangy fruit flavors
that is very popular with the ladies. The North Seas
Smoked Salmon Pizza (NT$230) is also one of the best-loved
dishes, while the Super Spicy Florence Fresh Shrimp
Pasta (NT$180) is not for the faint-hearted. Pizzas
here are cheap but not compromised in any way, as the
chefs insist on handmaking their dough to retain its
texture. The Smoked Cheese and Sausage Pizza (NT$180)
and the Naples Smoked Duck Pizza (NT$180) are both very
popular. Worth mentioning, too, is their set-meal deal;
for an extra NT$50, you can try two different kinds
of pasta in sizable portions.
