“Excellent Italian-style pizza”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Le Arcate is a fancy Italian restaurant in the Mariscal that serves excellent, thin-crust, Italian-style pizza - the best pizza I've had in South America. The salads were also very good, and the service was excellent.

“Excellent pizza, dessert & service!”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I'm an Italian living abroad and I know how difficult it is to eat a good pizza outside Italy.
Believe it, this restaurant has a large variety of pizzas in the menu, very good ingredients, excellent pizza... for sure one of the best I had abroad.
We tried also the desserts (salame di cioccolato and a panna cotta), great as well!
Owners are Italians and all over the evening they were friendly and taking care of their hosts.
Very recommended!

“Excelent Italian restaurant!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2012 via mobile

Lovely place, very charming, nice atmosphere, and great food; probably best italian in Quito. The bread is excellent! Pasta is fresh and very good. Risotto lovers will find this place a great one to enjoy a fantastic risotto. Pizza is EXCELLENT!! Marco and Margarita, the owners, are very charming hosts; they are there all the time to wait on their customers. For a cold day, the chimney is an excellent companion. And for the sweet tooth, profiteroles or panna cotta are tops!! At Le Arcate you'll get high quality food for your money.
