15 Pizzeria tries to mimic the Napoletana way of making pizzas, but just because you stone fire the pizza and make it with a thin crust, doesn't make it Napoletana style; you can't get that anywhere in Taipei. Fifteen Pizzeria is too expensive for the amount and quality that you receive.
I tried the Margherita Pizza, White Truffle Mushroom Pizza, Potato Pizza with Nuts and Gorgonzola Cheese, Calzone, Tiramisu dessert, and Chocolate Lava Cake dessert. The Margherita Pizza was pretty good, but ultimately a pass because there was barely any cheese, and the crust was so thin, it was hardly existing in the 3rd dimension. That isn't very cool for NT$320. The Potato Pizza with Nuts and Gorgonzola Cheese lacked any kind of flavor; pretty bland. Again, not worth it for NT$380. The White Truffle Mushroom Pizza was delicious. The combination of the ingredients: white sauce, mushrooms, basil leaves, ricotta cheese, and black truffle oil made for a great taste experience, but at NT$360 and only 10 inches with thin crust, I don't think that I would come back for it again. I definitely recommend the White Truffle Mushroom Pizza if you want to try out Fifteen Pizzeria, though. The crust was crispy and fresh on all the pizzas, expect for the Margherita which was too thin and became droopy with the tomato sauce.
The Calzone was alright, but didn't have enough cheese or other ingredients to really deliver a great tasting calzone -- don't bother. The Tiramisu dessert was yummy and quality; great dessert. It was sweet enough, creamy and not dry, and had an excellent consistency. The Chocolate Lava Cake dessert was a complete failure! There was barely any chocolate lava inside and the chocolate cake itself was dry and tasteless even when adding the raspberry sauce to it. Total waste of NT$180.
They also have a corner bar that serves quality German and Belgium beer at a reasonable bar price. Wine and sparkling wine can also be purchased at the bar.
I was looking forward to eating at Fifteen Pizzeria Napoletana and walked away disappointed. I have had a lot of better pizzas in Taipei for a lot less of the price.
