A couple of months tis restaurant closed. Premises have already the For Rent sign. This used to be my favorite restaurant however right after Gianmarco Moretti and his lovely wife sold it they began a gradual decline that was accelerated when Cristina, the manager, left. A sad story.

If you are visiting guayaquil, I highly recomend going to La Sociedad. It is real nice and is located in a place called Aventura plaza. I went there the other night and had some gnioccis that were delicious. The best part is that you can choose any type of pasta you want and combine it with the sauce you like... More

This gourmet restaurant is located in a very non-tourist part of the city. The place is small and few people know about it, that is why it is just perfect. If you want top gourmet food in a nice setting then definitively go to this place

Good mix of, and fresh daily vegetables, fish, meat, raviolis and especially, don't miss their Argentinian Empanadas. Atmosphere and hostess giving a very personalized service. On Thursday dinners, they have a guitarist playing the music of your choice at no extra cost, and guaranteed he will know one of your favorite songs, regardless of nationality.

Overall, we enjoyed our dinner and La Sociedad and the service was very good. The hostess (who I would guess is the owner's wife) was very hospitable and friendly. Our starters - the ravioli and salad were delicious, and tasted like they were made with fresh ingredients and love. We decided to splurge and have the risotto for 2 with... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Guayaquil is la Sociedad in Ventura Plaza (next to the big Iguana). Food is well prepared by the Italian chef-owner. He and his wife Janette run the place. The meats are well prepared, the fish is always fresh and some pastas are home made. Try the cocoa pasta with walnut sauce.
