The ambiance - The ambiance was what sold us the most. Imagine walking through black iron clad gates into a brick-floored courtyard sprinkled with tables and seating. Everything is beautiful and normal. Then you look to your left, and in the far corner is the owner himself rolling out pastas and stuffing ravioli all the while sipping on some wine. The owner was very warm and welcoming, and we were lucky enough to get seated right in front of him so that we could engage in conversation.

The food - We ordered the ravioli and another pasta whose name escapes me at the moment. The waiter came out to explain the menu to us and show us a tray of the pastas that the owner/chef was making. The pastas were fresh, and the sauce was a perfect amount without being overpowering. The amount of pasta is less than what we are used to back in the states, but it was a good amount to get us full without being overly stuffed. Last but not least, we have to mention the "jugo." Nosé has freshly made juices that are to die for. A perfect compliment to a plate of hand made pasta

Visited twice during our stay in Quito! Both times had great fresh pasta, made in front of us in the terrace area. Very friendly and accommodating staff!

We visited here just off one of the main eating squares as it was a bit quieter. A gem of a place and the staff are very friendly. Great pizza and my husband said even better puddings. He had the chocolate mousse! Would definitely come back.

Great selection of pizza at very good prices. good wine selection, also at very good prices. you also must try the cheesecake in a jar - it's fantastic.
service was wonderful and friendly. the atmosphere is really tranquil, which is surprising given the proximity to bars and clubs. we sat both inside and outside and particularly enjoyed the ambiance of the patio seating after dark.

Please correct the listing title! I love No Se and returned there recently while in Quito. Very nice atmosphere, and the service is better than usual for Quito. The menu has plenty to choose from for everyone, and they have a good drink and wine selection as well. No Se offers pick-up at your hotel at NO CHARGE and will have you delivered safely back there after dinner. I thought this was such a nice service. The proprietor said that the marketing people asked him what he was going to call his new restaurant, and he said, "I dont' know." Thus, the name "No Se." How fun is that!
