I have tried many pizza places in Cuenca and was pleasantly surprised when I visited this cute Italian restaurant. They have a great brick oven and the pizza was cooked to perfection. After trying the pizza here, which was reasonably priced, I won't go anywhere else. The owner and staff were very friendly and professional. Don't miss this gem!

Not "economco" by Ecuadorian standards, but very good food. The service is good and the ambiance is approprate and comfortable. We have taken both Ecuadorian and Gringo guests there and everyone seemd to like it.

If you want an upscale experience at reasonable prices this is it. For birthdays and other special occassions this is a very good choice.

Take your own birthday cake. They will serve it for you.

Chef needs to bottle and sell his arrabiata sauce. Pizza is best this side of Naples.

Service is inattentive almost the the point of indifference. Too bad, because this place has enormous potential!

We had gone there 3 years ago and had a lovely evening. Great atmosphere, reasonably priced, good food and nice wines. Waiters are attentive and helpful. Don't know why we never went back. We were invited there recently and had a great time, and have been back twice since. And will be going more frequently.

We had heard from fellow Gringos that this is a restaurant you do not want to miss. Food and service were excellent and the prices were reasonable. We had a hand tossed pizza, apps and dessert. We will be returning to try their dinner entrees later this week. Go hungry, you will be fed well.
