In Cuenca this restaurant sounds to serve excellent Italian food. The place is awesome decorated, has a great vibe. We tried Spaguetti al pesto and was so tasty. If you go to Cuenca go to this restaurant!

Pleasant little Italian food restaurant that we stop in when in that part of town (near the Museum of Modern Art). We have always liked the food, and the prices are reasonable.

The Cuenca go to for solid pasta dishes. The menu is fun to read and choose your dish. First, select a pasta from their extensive list and secondly select you sauce. While you wait for your meal they serve you a small antipasto starter to whet your appetite. The wine list is good and the prices are reasonable. A great... More

This Italian eataurante is in situated in a small hotel, and has a lovely ambiance! The food selection is amazing and everyone ( we were 28 for dinner) raved about it! Everything from filet mignon, to chicken carbonara, to lasagna, chicken mozarella, to choose your own pasta and sauce was superb! Even with such a large group, the service was... More

We happened to be walking by and Mangiare Benne was right there so we randomly decided to stop in. Sure glad we did! There was great variety, many different flavours and sauces to choose from in innumerable combinations. The prices were good and the food very filling. A definite recommend for anyone seeking a little bit of Italy in Ecuador.

We really enjoyed our pasta here, so did our daughter, we were able to get a half serving for her. The price seemed ok for the service and such. Just make sure the person attending gets your pastas right, since there are so many options.

Stopped here for dinner after an exhibit opening last week. Still a great place to have a good dinner. The choice of pastas and sauces is wonderful. They mixed ingredients on the sauces quite creatively and with tasty results. I ended up having a type of pasta stuffed with ricotta, mushrooms and nuts, with a sauce with almonds and cheese...
