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.

I wouldn't suggest for a... 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.

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
