AJO Pizza / 98 club / Dulan A Mano Pizza (都蘭義大利披薩) - Taitung County

An unexpected find, about 20 km north of Taitung city on Highway 11 (driving towards Hualien)…a small pizzeria/cafe/bistro with nice slices of Rome style pizza, prepared by Michel from Italy.

Very comfortable seating, trendy design, great friendly service, and fabulous pizza.

I second.

Michel is a really good guy and makes delicious pizza.

Just read on his Facebook page that he has closed shop and is moving to Dulan.

Wonder if 98 cafe will remain open (two business sharing the same premisses), and not sure what food they will offer.

Hi everybody,
this is Michele, Ajo Pizza owner, I would update some info listed above:
I move my restaurant a few month ago, just 2 Km south, the new address is:
Taitung County, Donghe Township, Dulan 459-2, on east coast provincial highway n.11 at 144.8 Km
Ajo Pizza 新地址: 東河鄉 都蘭村459-2號, 11號省道旁145K.
The new location is close to Dulan Village, about 10 minutes walk from the Dulan Sugar Factory, welcome to everybody!
新的位置是靠近都蘭村,步行約10分鐘,從都蘭糖廠,

A worthy addition to Dulan, it’s on the northern edge of town just over the bridge. Easy to drive past, I did. Look for the Italian tricolor.

Michele is polite and engaging, and serves up some tasty food (we tried the pizza and he also had pasta that day).
My only gripe would be that the open plan of the shop had the dong-bei wind cooling my pizza in seconds (I do like a hot pie).

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Are you still there and open?

The f-book link provided above says this:

都蘭義大利披薩 Dulan A Mano Pizza
台東縣東河鄉都蘭村459-2號(台11線144.8公里處)
Email contact seems to be another man: Dean7374@gmail.com

According to google maps, this iteration of the shop (perhaps with new ownership?) is open.

EDIT: Yes new ownership, as posted by @squall1 in 2019:

[T]his pizza place is pretty great. I’ve been when it was owned by an Italian guy and also recently since it’s been taken over by one of his employees. They’ve kept everything the same, quality ingredients, thin-ish crispy crust. Last time we were on a bike trip and walked over from town. It started pouring during our meal and the owner drove us back after we finished. Really sweet couple.
