We arrived around 1PM starving, but were told the pizza would take about 20 minutes. They (5 personal pizzas) took more like 40 min, but were delicious. The ingredients very fresh and the crust then and crunchy.

Best pizza I have had in 5 months travelling in South America! Garlic bread was baked fresh and amazing.

Excellent pizza at Padrinos! Excellent thin and crispy crust and the proprieter gladly made a half veggie/half meat pizza for my daughter and me. Best pizza I've ever had in lots of travels in Latin America (though admittedly I seldom order pizza there). Not super cheap by Ecuadorian standards but reasonable and the taste more than made up for the... More

Someone told me, "always trust a baker for pizza" ....wow, were they right. The crust was perfect, the toppings plentiful, and they used real cheese. Planning on going back there today too!

What a find, best pizza I've had in my 3 months on the road in South America. They make their own bases, the cheese they use is tasty and they are very generous with their fresh toppings. They also have a bread bakery and judging by the number of locals that came in to buy it, I'd say it's pretty... More

Delicious stone baked pizza with an impressive selection of toppings. I had a broccoli pizza and then spent the rest of my two and a half month trip through South America trying to find another one that even came close to how good this was - I never did. Really friendly staff and lovely restaurant - worth a visit

They have a big clay oven that the friendly staff cook in. The pizza had a regional flair and was not the usual North American fair. Great price. Basic booths and atmosphere.

The pizza is really delicious, you could even believe to be eating this in Italy! The price is very reasonable as well, so we came here on several occasions.

The pizza is delicious, filling and reasonably priced. Also try their version of garlic bread, it's delicious. I ate here two days in a row after long days hiking around the waterfall sanctuary and climbing around the various falls. It was just what I needed and while the place is small it's cozy, and warm. Both temperature wise and people... More

Ok, we admit that we do not have the nicest place. All in all we are a bakery. But we keep it clean and cozy. Also it is always warm due to the bread oven.
But what we do have to say:
Best Pizza around!!!
