We have eaten twice and had take out twice all in one week. I was sick and couldn't move from the hotel. Every meal has been outstanding. As good as you would get in New York. Their Alfredo sauce is like having sex. Owner is Argentinian and very friendly. Waiter was attentive but still respectful.

The menu has English translations. I ordered Risotto Parmesan and my wife ordered Fettuccine Alfreado. Overall my Risotto was fair but somewhat... More

On our first night in Cuenca the Hotel receptionist at Casa San Rafael recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was well presented and expertly prepared. I would recommend this restaurant when you visit Cuenca.

Of all the locations we ate, this was one of my wifes favorite. The food was delicious. The service was great. It was a little more expensive than some of the other places we ate but always a good time.

This was our first dining experience at Mangiare benne. The restaurant is charming to say the least nestled in the Posada del Angel Hostal. The service was very good and in English. We had the fettuccine carbonara with a side Greek salad which were both very tasty. I cannot wait to return to try a different entree. Meal prices ranged... More

Lunch this place is always great. Best Italian food in Cuenca. Been eating here for almost three years. Kitchen has been consistently good. It is my feeling that one can't go wrong with MB. Hosts Angie and Daniel are always attentive and friendly.

Excellent food, warm atmosphere. Get there early for dinner because it fills fast after 7 p.m., especially on weekends.
