A flavourful break

The dining experience was very good. The food fresh and flavorful. The staff attentive. After two weeks of business dinners with the local food it was very nice to have a free evening and food more familiar to our palates.

After a few weeks of travelling we really fancied some Italian. Found this place and we were initially very impressed. The fresh bread they brought was warm and delicious with very clever little pouring pots for the vinegar and olive oil. Our starters were decent but we were very disappointed with the mains. I ordered a basic pasta dish with... More

If your craving Italian cuisine then this is the place to goto. The service was excellent. The orders came hot in the specific orders we requested. I would suggest the eggplant salad and lobster as an appetizer to share, the mushroom ravioli as a main dish (I liked the texture and the sauce). To be honest I enjoyed everything we... More

Echo does basic Italian cuisine well. All the favorites are there. Decor is modern and comfortable. Service is attentive. Located centrally.

Stopped in here for a lunch one day. Had a pizza and a few glasses of wine. Met my expectations on both price, taste, and service. But, it's Colombo, not Florence.

Bougt lasagna and ravioli four cheese. The food was very good, and portion was a ok size. Service was very good, and there was little waiting time. The restaurant is nice and pleasant inside. It is a little bit high prices and be aware that it will be added some in service and taxes.

I visited several times over the past few weeks and tried many dofferent things, the bread they give you before your starter is lovely with the oils, brusetta is lovely, tomato soup, steak main, lasagne, but the best is the double lamb shanks. Bar the above, the Wednesday night Buffett for the price is superb....only fault I have is service... More

Since I am Italian it's hard sometimes to appreciate other countries food..and even more difficult to appreciate italian food in restaurants everywhere but Italy. I was very surprised to find my little Italy in every plate Echo restaurant served to me! I also got to know Riccardo, the chef at Echo and he often created new and awesome plates just... More

I spent a wonderful evening at echo. The food was tasteful, exquisite, prepared with accuracy and perfectly served. The atmosphere was fantastic and the chef creativity delighted us. I strongly suggest to visit echo and to try the real Italian cuisine in Colombo
