For 12 years I have visited Smooth only. If you are an Ex-Pat or International visitor that is where to go! Same owner as Fatty's - just very laid back. Italian dishes and German beer / bar the best in Taichung!!

A nicer restaurant than their casual next door restaurant "Fatty's". They call it a European Restaurant, however I would say mostly Italian with a few other dishes. Their baked pastas were good. The creme brulee was great...one of the best I've had. I'm a very picky eater and I finished everything. Not a fan of their house salad. It's the... More
