Best budget Italian food

NileGuide Expert tip:
Weekend waiting times often run longer than an hour, so call ahead.
There is certainly no shortage of good Italian food in Taipei, but it often comes with an astronomical price tag. Not so at Primo Trattoria. This small bistro, located just behind the SOGO department store
's Zhongxiao branch, serves Italian cuisine worthy of a higher end hotel restaurant but at much more reasonable prices. The dining area is nice enough for a date or business meeting but casual enough for a group gathering.
While almost every menu item tastes fresh and flavorful, very worthy of the price, the restaurant has been known to have off days when it comes to food presentation and service in general.
