Great place to eat Italian food, best I have tasted in Ecuador . Risotto or pasta di Mari are excellent. The meat was great too. The chef is Italian and was very friendly and passionate about his food. Highly recommended.

We came here hoping for pizza as we had seen reviews. It seems there are two restaurants with the same name. We almost left when we realised there was no pizza but are so so glad we didn't. We had the spinage and ricotta tortellini...More
