Some of the best pizza I’ve had in Ecuador. The food is good and so is the service. It is a little expensive for Otavalo but I recommend.

Biking 18.000km make you crave for healthy with love prepared food. Warm welcome, good wine and perfect pizza made our evening. They only work with local products! Note the eco touch.
