Good but could be better

The staff was gentle, friendly, courteous and well trained. The variety offered was good too. But, taking into consideration, the fact that it caters to many foreigners, the staff was not conversant about gluten free food.

We've eaten here a number of times over the past six years and place our last experience at this restaurant as between okay and good. Nothing was wrong, the food is safe, the ambience nice, the staff attentive but the food was a bit pub style italian. Still would give it another go, based on its previous track record.

Don't get me wrong - I love South Asian food, and the spicier the better. But every once and a while, you need to re-set your taste buds. Echo offered an excellent Italian way to do that. Sauces were nice but not overwhelming, and everything tasted very fresh including the pastas. I was tempted by the lunch buffet which seems... More

Lovely little Italian restaurant. Staff very attentive & pizzas very tasty. Considering we are at a 5 star hotel the price was very reasonable. Would definitely recommend a visit

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Colombo. Had Lunch there this afternoon....this must have been my 5th visit in the span of a month! Great Anti Pasti Buffet weekdays at lunch time which has to be the best value for money in town. Excellent bread, choice of 2 soups and wonderful range of Italian anti pasti and salads.... More

The hotel suggested that we dine there and so booked us a table. On that day (Wednesday) there was buffet which we did not try as reviews suggested we avoid. We were given a small corner table not in the main dining area but inside the smoking section. We were never asked if we preferred smoking or non-smoking. Restaurant was... More

We have been recommended this restaurant as one of the best Italian In Colombo. We were sadly disappointed. Sunday evening is obviously not the best time to go as the restaurant was practically empty. It was cold and soulless. The waiters were more interested in chatting with each other and did not bother with us. The pasta was hard and... More

I would say that Echo has the best Italian food in town. The service was great, well maintained place and well trained staff. The staff is very polite and helpful. Please make sure that you make a reservation before you go there, as during the weekends it would be pretty crowded. But I must say, it has an awesome ambiance,... More
