No. No paper filters in espresso machines.Whether you're fine with a Bialetti or want an actual espresso machine can only be answered by yourself. The taste is very different. Think 100-120 USD for Bialetti + grinder as opposed to, say, 400-500 USD for the cheapest decent espresso setup. Also consider that you'll need quite a bit of practice to pull a decent espresso.If you decide in favour of the Bialetti, have a look at the Bialetti Brikka. Another option to consider is...
I'm a big fan of Broker's. Of Booker's too. By the way, I find the statement that Campari couldn't stand up to Broker's prepostrous.

It'd be helpful if you told us what your (soon to be) gf and you like, food-wise. There's so much stuff out there, ranging from gambas al ajillo to frittata, boquerones en vinagre, albondigas, tons of salad--middle-eastern, italian, french, spanish (like Ottolenghi's cauliflower/hazelnut/celery/pomegranate/maple syrup/.. salad, tabbouleh, salade nicoise,...)--, regular "antipasti", etc. Also, soup! You could make the swiss chard stew from Ottolenghi. Or minestrone. Or...
