Stopped by for dinner. There is a good selection of pizzas but they have lots of other options. Service was good and the pizza was delicious! Thin crispy base and no skimping on toppings!

I had a good time at El Tigrillo. It was recommended to me by a friend and has a domed, wood (I believe) oven where they cook the pizza. It was definitely a nice change of pace from my normal fare here in Ecuador and...More

Great pizza, sandwiches and almuerzo also! Very Feeney family owned business with a real wood burning stove to prepare pizzas and sandwiches. Ignore reviews that want a cookie cutter experience.

El Tigrillo with a history of almost 30 years, being the first restaurant in Mindo, previously named San Francisco, since November 11, 2008, starting to be called El Tigrillo. The pizzeria El Tigrillo is characterized by having an original Italian pizza, respecting the traditions and ingredients of that country. On the other hand, we make national food.
