It´s a lovely place inside the historical center of town, good food Italian specialties and many more traditional ones to choose from. The prices are quite reasonable and the service is fine. Just minutes away from walking along the best sites in the old centro a world heritage cultural site.

This place knows hiw to make the best sauces on rheir pastas! It is one of my favorite places to eat. But the graciousness of the staff and their willingness to do anything to help their customers is what brings me back. Two examples- the family party that grew from 12 to 20. In spite of having a busy night... More

As you enter this beautiful colonial house, you know this placed was imagined as a place to enjoy. Fortunately, the food was up to the first impression and was even more enjoyable than expected. I had the pasta filled with beef and bolognese sauce on top of it. It was just delicious. This place is managed by its owners, and... More

We have lived in Cuenca for several years now and have found many good restaurants, but few have been as consistently good as Mangiare Benne. The service is attentive, professional and friendly and the Italian food is always delicious. We make a point of going there about once a month and will likely continue to do so. We also appreciate... More

The food and service are consistent, time after time. The food is always delicious and the service is spot on. This is the only restaurant we have been to where they come back to the table to see if everything is OK and if there is anything they can get for you. If you haven't tried Mangier Benne, please them... More

I was here 3 times and every meal was excellent. Located in Posada del Angel Hotel, and the food is mostly Italian. Rather entertaining too to watch the kitchen activities from the restaurant. Staff are great too and speak English very well.

We chose to eat here because it had great reviews, but so did El Jardin and it was horrible, so I was a bit nervous. This place exceeded our expectations. Honestly was not expecting pasta to be so good in Ecuador. Whenever you go to a place that the owner is about, talking to his customers, you know he cares... More
