義式料理以豐富而多元的味覺饗宴著稱，因地不同在食材運用和料理方式產生多樣風貌，Cin Cin Osteria承襲義式料理精神融合台灣食材特色，展現獨特料理風味。
Italian 'CIN CIN!' is originally from Chinese 'please please', means 'Cheers.'
Italian cuisine is known for its rich and diverse taste feast. It produces different styles due to the difference in food ingredients and cooking methods. Cin Cin Osteria inherits the spirit of Italian cuisine and blends Taiwanese ingredients to create a unique flavor.
However, this old house is over fifty years of age that is hidden in the lanes of Xinyi District in Taipei. Age has left its traces on it, and we regard it as treasure. It 's not in a hurry to renovate or cover it up. We understand that the historical charm of the inherited space is integrated into the creation of a new era, and then we can endow the space with a unique soul and spread out a new life.
Wheat is the backbone of the food ingredients, and hand-made is the spirit of cooking.
The tiled sign board feature of wheat as a pattern and connects the spirit of Italian hand-made from the kitchen. The carbonized solid wood ceiling tells the aroma of kiln, and it embellished with retro lights such as the shape of copper pot. The hexagon Spanish tile with cement floor is like an abstract painting.
Deconstruction of taste
To deconstruct the composition of cooking ingredients and to be reconstructed the visual images by its taste, makes a new spatial experience.
The wall putty shows the texture of hand-made. The hexagonal glass jar which is full of ingredients and spices, arrange the pattern as the gorgeous mosaic with black-and-white mural of hand-painted. The image of pizza combines vision with taste, which tells Italian cuisine values ingredients, various spices, and the handmade spirit.
Cuisine is the art of creation, but it also requires understanding.
Pizza kiln is the core of the restaurant, where the customer is greeted by the kiln burning fragrance in the obvious position of the entrance. From making the dough, preparing the toppings, adding the pizza peel, putting in kiln, sliding pizza, and removing from kiln on the kitchen countertops, all the action is done without any letup. The multi-angle perspective reflects from the round mirror on the ceiling above, such as the dynamic show which is fascinating. It is an inspiration that seeing the eyes of the focus and the craftsmanship on the perfect presentation of the master.
Mottled painting, peeled wallpaper, nail holes, and cement... the historical traces was accumulated over fifty years, like murals of archaeological which remains preserved. Ham, ingredients, and utensils... which connects the cultural atmosphere of Italian cuisine with hand-painted murals. Retro tiles, glass, copper lamps, and old lattice windows...were rebuilt to create a perfect balance between Eastern and Western elements, cultural overlap, and old and new.
