We popped in to Carpe Diem for dinner and enjoyed the experience from start to finish. The seafood risotto is amazing, topped with a huge bbq prawn. Delish! The pastas are excellent too. Lots of parmesan and veges & meat in the sauce - exactly...More

Carpe Diem is a wonderful little spot-- cozy & romantic with great ambience, great service and delicious food! The menu has lots of good veggie options and the wine selection was solid. Definitely one of the best spots in Banos!

The food in Ecuador has been hit and miss for us. After a bad meal in another Banos restaurant, we tried this. We really enjoyed it, and being Italian, I can say it was all done in the traditional way! Soups, fillet steaks, pizza, salads,...More

Highly recommend this restaurant. Had the seafood pasta which was incredible and probably tops the list as best I've had. Came back the very next day for lunch and had a pizza which was equally as delicious.

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.

Read reviews for this place & gave it a shot! Glad we did, food was excellent & still very reasonably priced. Carbonara & pomadora were very fresh and authentic! Go!

4.5 stars for the homemade gnocchi. Yummy sauce (more basil-y than I’m used to, in a good way). Everyone at my table loved their main dishes. Salad verde was underwhelming. Pasta portions are massive — no need for salad or appetizers. Free appetizer is bruschetta...More
