Italian owners who really have brought a little bit of Italy to Puerto Lopez. The owner was very friendly and the service was quick. We indulged in 1/2 L of white wine for $7.50, Spaghetti in white wine and garlic and clams for $12, Marina for $11.50 and a different tiramisu for $3. All food was so fresh whilst using... More

We can't believe we only tried this place on our last two days in Port Lopez! We were there both nights - it was absolutely divine! We had the first night, spaghetti marina in a home made rich tomato sauce with local octopus and squid. We also had the fresh clams with olive oil, garlic and herb spaghetti. Te following... More

We went to this family run italian small restaurant and were really happy with it! The home-made pasta was delicious. If you like this combined with a nice atmosphere it's definitively worth to go there :-) Comments on other reviews: - the restaurant is not on the second floor! - the owner, his wife and the staff were very kind...

I was in Italy a few years ago and this is the best pasta I have had since then! We were only in puerto lopez for three nights and came here twice. I highly recommend any of their daily specials, both the pasta negro (made with squid ink) with shrimp, mushrooms and a white wine cream sauce, and other the... More

Ok, again we have to keep in mind that we are in Puerto lopez Ec. Having said that the menu is limited but the Italian owner is in fact a chef and what he makes is honestly quite authentic and very good. The ambience is very nice. Yes, the service can be sometimes a bit slow but hey, your here... More

We really enjoyed our night here. Bell Italia is surrounded by a beautiful garden and the atmosphere is very nice. We had lasagna, vegetarian cannellonis and tiramisu and they were all delicious! Only downside is that this restaurant is a little pricey.

Don’t be put off by the seemingly slightly dodgy neighbourhood, or the outside of the place. Inside there’s a beautiful garden with a lovingly decorated small eating area. The food is simple yet really really well prepared and cooked. We had simple pasta (homemade by the owner) and tomato dishes with ricotta cheese, good olive oil and fresh parmesan. And... More

Husband and wife owners hand make pastas and excellent Italian dishes with home made sauces and fresh herbs. One of the best meals we had in all of Ecuador. Enter through a narrow hallway onto a raised wood porch with a thatched roof and table linen with candles. It overlooks a jungle garden. Very cozy and romantic. Excellent table service... More
