Starting with the delicious bread, we had high hopes for dinner. The pesto was nice but not amazing by any stretch, the pizza was good but what can go wrong with a plain Margarita? The spaghetti bolognaise was easily the most forgettable i have ever...More

We just ate here last night with friends visiting from Quito. Everyone loved their meal and the Caprese Salad was divine mixed with their balsamic sauce. This is a great little Italian restaurant in cuenca. The chef is the real deal. Yummy, beyond comfort food!

I like the food and the staff make you feel welcome and wanted. The other diners are fun too. That makes a pizza alone very nice.

For me this is the best Italian restaurant in Cuenca. Every single dish I tried was delicious: the vegetarian pizzas, the gnocchi, the lasagnas... For such a quality restaurant, the prices are reasonable.

The owner of the hotel where we were staying (Casa Ordonez - highly recommended) told us of this restaurant. We ordered pizza, which was very good, and the beer prices were great too.
