Description: Cosa Nostra is a "Trattoria - Pizzeria", a typical italian concept. The menu is divided into a pizza section and a pasta section with a large selection of dry pasta and fresh home made pasta like gnocchi, ravioli and lasagna. Cosa Nostra uses only organic vegetables, fresh cheese coming from Cayambe every day and extra vergin olive oil. There are special dishes, like the pizza Norcina which is very gourmet because it has a sauce made of black truffles coming directly from Italy. The desserts of Cosa Nostra are italian winners,in fact Cosa Nostra's tiramisu is prepared with real mascarpone. Cosa Nostra is "Casa Vostra": the thing is that you have to feel home when you come here!!COSA NOSTRA has now tree locations: Baquerizo Moreno E7 -86 y Diego de Almagro, the second location is in Republica del Salvador N34-234 y Moscu. And the third location is in Orellana E11-70 e Isabel La Catolica, near the Hotel Quito.

“Good but not Great”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Went with my wife and her mother. I got the Margarita pizza for $8. My wife got the lasagna and her mother got the spaghetti Bolognese. The pizza was good but not like anything you can get in the States so expectations need to be adjusted. The crust was like a saltine cracker but of course softer. The lasagna was tiny, burnt and lacked meat and the proper cheeses. The spaghetti was also short of meat. I would only go to this restaurant for the pizza and I would not travel for it, only if I was in the area. The service was good. Remember to add 22% to the menu price of the food, 12% IVA and 10% tip. It's very difficult to get great pizza in Quito. Oh how I miss the north end of Boston and of course, New York. I have read the other reviews, it must be the altitude.

“Great pizza and wine”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

After 8 days in the Galapagos, we were so hungry for pizza upon arriving in Quito. Walked to this restaurant and were quite pleased. An extensive pizza/pasta menu and it was REALLY good. Waiters were fine. Good Argentinian wine. What's not to like?

“The best Italian food!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We loved the food here so much that we did return visits. The pizza is true Italian and the pasta is to die for. It is a cozy restaurant, not too big and is quite busy in the evening. Prices are fair, not too high.
