Good pizzas, extensive wine choice, not hugely authentic, but tasty nonetheless. Attentive staff and decent value

The staff are extremely friendly and there is a lare menu from which to choose. All food was very fresh and light. We were very grateful that although we didn't have huge orders, we were still given great service and attention. If you want a quick meal or longer meal it is a good venue. I wouldn't suggest for a... More

Echo is a really nice, tiny Italian restaurant in the heart of Colombo. Although busy, they were able to accommodate us without a booking. Service was excellent throughout the meal and kids were made to feel very welcome. Starters were great (recommend the antipasto platter) and pizza for main was very enjoyable. With wine, the bill is not cheap but... More

It was a very pleasant meal of Italian flavor and good value for money. There was a wide variety of restaurants to choose from (11 I believe) and we chose the Echo because it allowed us in without too much formality on dress-code (most others required shirt and tie) - hard to adhere to when your on a beach holiday!

Was actually my second visit - things haven't improved - it's certainly very conveniently located but beyond that it's a mediocre restaurant. There's many more good Italian restaurants in Colombo.

The tomato soup and the pizza were excellent. Bolognese not so much.The staff were really friendly, we walked in without reservations and got the seat by the window. Overall nice ambience.

Visited last evening. Sat down and out came the waiter with 3 types of bread, some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Had to try but had also ordered some bruschetta which was magic. Nice piece of beef cooked perfectly washed down with a Californian Cab Sav. All in all a very nice experience. Not cheap but not expensive by home... More

This restaurant which is attached to...well, almost, to Cinnamon Grand Hotel, has excellent Italian...however, I feel it's a bit pricey and can be 'fussy'. I've gone a couple of times for lunch and more times than not, I have to take the buffet which I'm never overly excited about.

A nice centrally located spot for good Italian food in quiet sophisticated surroundings. Enjoyed a nice dinner there for 2. I had the fish main course with 2 varieties of fish, good portions, fresh, well cooked and presented, I could not really fault it. My wife had the home made ravioli, again a tasty, authentic and satisfying dish. Alas we... More
