“Relax and enjoy Italian Fare in the Andes”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Pizza Siciliana serves up excellent pizzas. They're made to order and for the most part use fresh ingredients. (some ingredients such as mushrooms can be canned).

They'll light the fireplace on chilly nights and the low lighting throughout the restaurant gives an ambiance of relaxation and intimacy. Some evenings (Fridays and Saturdays usually) they will have live music which attracts both foreign travelers and locals.

Order a glass of wine with your pizza and enjoy great Italian cuisine in Otavalo.

“Excellent Pizza and Ambiance”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

My wife and I ate here several times while in Otavalo because the pizza was so good (and a lot of the other restaurants were hit or miss) and the owner is so outgoing and welcoming. One of the nights they had a local Andean band play, which was nice, and they also have a fireplace that warms the place and adds to the ambiance. No Wi-Fi.

“Great pizza - and delightful folkloric music to boot!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We wanted our kids to hear some Andean music while in Ecuador, but you have to be 21 to go to the Peñas (folkloric cafe/bars). Our hotel recommended we go there for dinner, and the free live Andean music on they have weekends.

It's in the middle of town, half way between the main square and the artisan market. We found it to be a delightful, cozy spot with room for perhaps 50-70 people. Friendly, unassuming service, and excellent pizza from their wood-fired stoves. The prices were quite reasonable, especially with free live music.

The band was great - lively and genuinely having fun while showing off their multi-instrumental and vocal skills. The same band was also playing later that night at the peña next door, though that was past our bedtime. It was a great way to get a meal we all loved, and a genuine Ecudorian musical experience at the same time.
