Delicious food in a lovely atmosphere. We couldn't have been more pleased by the service, from the waiter to the food presentation. Highly recommended, totally worth the price.

One of my favorite places in the world. True Italian with a touch of criollo mix taste... Try the Talirini Nero aragosta or the pasta tartufa... Clams in white wine... Excellent

You can have a nice time in a fine environment, it's a bit expensive, but worth it. Good to visit with family and/or friends.

One of the better restaurants in the city. I had a spaghetti dish and pizza. We spent around $120 for four people (four entrees, one appetizer, two beers, two mineral waters). I was impressed w their service. The manager was very pleasant.

Best Italian restaurant in Guayaquil. Been going there for 10 years and never have been disappointed, the quality is always excellent and fresh even when it's full. The prices are high but worth it from time to time to celebrate something special .
