Very good Italian restaurant

We were brought to La Gloria as part of our pre-cruise package prior to our Galapagos cruise. In spite of the fact the restaurant greeted and served about 75 folks arriving at the same time, the food was quite good and the service excellent!

We ate here twice while in Quito. The first time the restaurant served the 95 passengers who would embark on a cruise to Galápagos. All meals were excellent, served hot, and very quickly. When we returned it was a quiet evening for the restaurant and again the meals for four of us were quite good and the wine selection also... More

We ate here before a Celebrity Cruise to the Galapagos. Group of 94, but the service and food were as outstanding as if we were the only 2 there.

Wonderful restaurant with excellent food just steps away from where we were staying. The wait staff was very professional the ambiance was great. Wanted to go back but it was closed for a special event when we were back in town.

We dined here as part of a group tour of ~80 people. Taking our order was a little slow to start, but the food and wine were promptly delivered. Regardless of being essentially a banquet, the meals were fresh and very tasty. Would suggest giving it a try.

We went with Celebrity Cruises before our Galapagos cruise so the menu was not the regular one. I had the beef shank which was incredibly tender and nicely flavoured. My husband had the organic chicken which he found to be tasty. For dessert there was a trio of some small desserts, one of which was a cheesecake. The food was... More

What a surprise: menus in English did not match prices to the Spanish one, dessert menu did not have prices at all! Does tourists pay more? Does the lamb is really from Patagonia (no way!!!)

Really enjoyed our meal at La Gloria - the food was very good, and the restaurant has a wine store inside of it so you can get a good bottle of wine at a reasonable price. It's also not crawling with tourists -- or at least it was a quiet night when we were there. Definitely recommend it.

I have been to the restaurant before. Service is good but tends to be slow at times. The entrees were fantastic - the octopus was great as well as the tiradito, the sauce was the best part for the latter. My main course was good (paella), it was spiced the right amount and well cooked. My companions dish however was... More
