We went here twice because it was very good. The owner has been here a long time and knows what he is doing. The atmosphere is great: a quiet garden oasis in town. The menu stays the same, but there are enough options for a few visits.

Even the house red wine was good. Follow the signs from Malecon -- it is about 4 blocks from north end, but worth it. We actually tried to go the night before, but no tables were open (a first for us in Ecuador). Also, ask for the price of the special, as mine was steep.

Chef serves original dishes. Hovers over you to make sure everything is exactly to his taste. A little intimidating, but the food was excellent.

We were so fortunate to find out about this oasis in Puerto Lopez. It was hands down the best meal we had during a month in Ecuador and the garden setting is wonderful !

Much more expensive than your average Puerto Lopez restaurant but definitely worth it!! The Lasagna in particular was amazing.

If you are looking for real Italian Food, just follow the Bella Italia signs in Puerto Lopez and find this great spot. The restaurant has a great ambiance, it's like dining in a secret garden having perfect Italian Food. We loved the lasagne and cannelloni. Everything is fresh and homemade.
