Moda Vita Caffè 義式料理是一家位於天母士林區的義大利餐廳, 屬於天母SOGO週邊美食, 平價程度在小資男女可接受的範圍.
Moda Vita Caffè is one of the Italian Restaurants at Tianmu area. The must-mentioned detail would be their price range is quite friendly.
Menu is at the end of the article
Moda Vita Caffè 就像 “DOMANI 義大利餐廳”皆在豪宅一樓, 離芝山捷運站1號出口只需走路五分鐘, 知名“野上麵包”就在餐廳附近. 室內裝潢比 “FIELD 小田食光”低調, 座椅跟 ”IL MERCATO 餐廳” 一樣舒服, 開放式廚房與小酒櫃類似 “Naked Bistro 裸餐酒”的格局, 很難想像這家餐廳的單點料理價格竟是如此平價.
Just like “DOMANI Italian Restaurant”, Moda Vita Caffè is located at the first floor at the high-cost luxurious building. It only takes about 5 minutes walking from Zhishan MRT station Exit one. The indoor design is similar but yet more low profile than “FIELD Restaurant”. Its seats are as comfortable as “IL MERCATO Italian restaurant”. The open kitchen and wine cabinet are similar with “Naked Bistro” at Taipei East District. It is difficult to imagine that the price of each cuisine is way lower than all the restaurants that I mentioned above.

牛肝菌濃湯 & 佐餐麵包
English Name: Creamy Porcini Soup & Bread
Foodelicious 美味程度: ????
佐餐麵包輕描淡寫地抹上少許大蒜醬, 並不會像傳統歐式麵包過硬, 鬆軟程度極高. 新鮮牛肝菌成本相當昂貴, 因此店家採用乾燥牛肝菌, 但口感比預期中地軟, 濃郁滑順湯頭的奶香味稍微蓋過獨特菇味.
The bread is pre-spread with small amount of garlic paste. Unlike other European breads, its texture is soft and great pairing with any kind of soup. Since the fresh Porcini is very expensive, the restaurant decides to use dried porcini. The porcini’s texture is softer than expected. The creamy soup flavor covers a bit of the unique porcini flavor.
朋友選了今日例湯-法式洋蔥湯, 我沒有喝, 但我朋友表示相當喜歡這款湯品.
My friend chose Daily Soup-the French Onion Soup. I didn’t try it, but my friend liked it.
English Name: Fries with Truffle Sauce
Foodelicious 美味程度: ??
從形狀看來應該是店家自己買真材實料的馬鈴薯, 跟 “LE BLANC TAIPEI”的批發薯條不一樣. 這道料理並沒有像 “Blue Rooster Bistro” 和 “Gumgum Bar & Wings 雞翅啤酒吧“有薯條佐醬, 最可惜的是薯條過於軟並沒有脆度.
Unlike “LE BLANC TAIPEI”, this restaurant seemed to purchase and slice the potato themselves. However, this dish doesn’t have any pairing sauce like “Blue Rooster Bistro” and “Gumgum Bar & Wings Bar”. The texture is a bit at the soggy side instead of crispy.
English Name: Fettuccine with mushroom in truffle and cream sauce
Foodelicious 美味程度: ????
“Jamie Oliver Taipei” 的黑松露白醬寬麵採用寬麵 (Tagliatelle), 份量也較大, 比較適合朋友分享, Moda Vita Caffè 用的是寬扁麵 (Fettuccine), 份量適合個人, 奶油醬汁比一般平價義大利麵更為濃稠, 但奶油風味並不會蓋住野菇風味, 也許是因為乾燥野菇本身味道就較為濃烈. 最讓我驚喜的是藏在細節裡的脆玉米筍切片和清脆花椰菜切片, 帶來不同口感.
“Jamie Oliver Taipei”’s Truffle Tagliatelle dish size is larger and suitable for sharing. Moda Vita Caffè ’s dish size is suitable for one person. The cream sauce is thicker than other price-friendly pasta sauce. But the milky flavor didn’t cover the mushroom flavor maybe due to they use the dried mushrooms. The most surprising and delicious part would be the crisp sliced baby corn and sliced cauliflower.
朋友選香蒜辣味雞肉起司義大利麵, 是我朋友喜歡的有稍微義大利麵硬度, 雞肉也不會柴, 建議點小辣即可.
My friend chose the spicy garlic and cheese chicken pasta. My friend mentioned that the spaghetti texture is hard, which is cooked well. The chicken is moist as well.
English Name: Latte
Price: 補差價 Extra + NTD $20
Foodelicious 美味程度: ???
以補差價的方式相當划算, 咖啡並不會因為價格而失去咖啡香氣, 更重要的是可以在餐後與朋友輕鬆聊天.
I only pay extra NTD $20 for the hot latte. The foam is thick and coffee itself has fair amount of coffee aroma.
台北東區的 “饗享“ 販售的是巴西莓果汁, Moda Vita Caffè 賣的是野莓風味冰沙 (補差價 Extra + NTD $30), 若不是當天我還沒喝咖啡, 我應該也會點這款飲料, 因為台北冰沙平均價大約在NTD $80 左右.
At “Xiang Xiang Restaurant”, they offer berry juice. Moda Vita Caffè offers Berries Smoothie with extra NTD $30. My friend ordered this drink. Next time, I might order this drink as well.
English Name: Tiramisu
Price: 招待 Trial Taste
Foodelicious 美味程度: N/A
甜點並不包括在午餐組合裡, 是店長招待, 為了符合大眾喜好, 並沒有經典酒香或是過濃咖啡風味, 蛋糕體本身濕潤, 新鮮水果也為這道甜點多加分.
This dessert is not included at the lunch menu. The store manager would like us to try their Tiramisu and give them feedback. In order to covers all customer’s preference, this particular Tiramisu didn’t have the classic rum nor coffee flavor. The ladyfinger is moist along with the fresh fruits on the top.
