Great place to eat Italian food, best I have tasted in Ecuador . Risotto or pasta di Mari are excellent. The meat was great too. The chef is Italian and was very friendly and passionate about his food. Highly recommended.

Read reviews for this place & gave it a shot! Glad we did, food was excellent & still very reasonably priced. Carbonara & pomadora were very fresh and authentic! Go!

We came here hoping for pizza as we had seen reviews. It seems there are two restaurants with the same name. We almost left when we realised there was no pizza but are so so glad we didn't. We had the spinage and ricotta tortellini...More

We visited early on this Thursday evening. A good pour of crisp, dry white wine and a savoury bruschetta with slabs of marinated mushrooms, fresh tomatoes and grilled eggplant. We could have stopped there! But happily continued with a huge plate of spinach and ricotta...More
