Good pizza but don't go alone

There's a lot of cheese but the crust is nice. And the bruschetta is great! Is it as good as real italian? Of course not! But still a good place to stop since you're clearly not in italy. There's really no personal size option so I wouldn't recommend it to solo travelers. Service was great for us.

The best traditional pizza in Quito!! Sea food pizza is out of this world, the calzone is also amazing! Great tiramisu! Several locations but liked the one in Cumbaya!

Italian style pizza (thin crust, once size only). Great in every way. The lasagna is small but it's great

I went here with a friend. The pizza is nice , there is actually lot of options. We asked for pizza #99 and we added olives and brie cheese. You will get a big pizza so I recommend to share (at least you are very very hungry). What I liked about the place is that you can add stuff to... More

I've been here multiple times with friends, and it's become our go-to dinner choice. Be sure to get there early, as this place is always packed! So many pizza options, authentic Italian pastas and appetizers (if you can't find your favorite dish, ask the server and they sometimes make off-the-menu traditional dishes), and a lively atmosphere. The service is Ecuadorian... More

I was a little concerned about eating here because of the mixed reviews, but our experience was very positive. To begin with the service was excellent. Not sure about the many reviews that criticize the service, but our experience was very positive. We were never ignored and our drinks and food came out promptly and as requested. The hostess kept...

nice italian food, we enjoyed pizza and lasagna, and a fresh lemonade; but the waiter didn´t look very happy. No tips this time mate!!! Ah, they don´t serve prosciuto anymore!!! too sad because I loved their prosciuto pizza.

One of our Ecuadorian friends introduced us to the great little pizza place. We had an appetizer of tomatoes topped mozzarella cheese that was wonderful. Plus crisp pizza with an assortment of toppings. Don't miss out on the bottle of spicy vinegar. We are from Texas so we loved it hot & spicy.

The crazy vegetarian pizza is really packed full of veggies. Home delivery is not that great and the pizzas get soggy. Service is not the best; we arrived at the time they supposedly opened and were made to wait about 30 minutes and actually told to wait OUTSIDE. That said, the pizza is pretty good.
