If you are missing some good uthentic Italian food while in Ecuador I highly recommend you to visit this restaurant, they even speak a bit Italian with you! Good wine selection and great service.

The minestrone soup and beef lasagna were great. The wine was also very nice. Price was reasonable. I was well impressed.

Overpriced, underwhelming Italian cuisine. Sunday evening restaurant options in Quito are limited - it seems many places close by late afternoon - and we stumbled upon this place with sweet relief. Our enthusiasm waned when we encountered the limited wine selection, and further dimmed when we received our entrees: a margarita pizza and a gorgonzola pasta. The food was filling... More

One of the best steaks I've had. Covered with a blend of bacon, mushrooms and cream sauce. Now my mouth is watering again.

I felt alone, I was alone. But still, as a restaurant owner you have to make your client feel comfortable. They didn't. Their smartphone was more interesting. The food however is really good.

We returned to Le Parc Hotel from the Galapagos, anxious to eat at Romolo and Remo Italian restaurant again, but it is closed on Sundays. With our hearts set on Italian, we walked a block further and found another great Italian restaurant with very professional service, lovely table settings and great food. The ravioli was the big winner, but my... More

Recommended by a friend. A quiet place far from the noisy places of the area. Food was good. My choice for share with a friend : Caprese salad, grilled octopus, and spaghetti marinara. Size was perfect for us. Asked for wine (in Ecuador alcoholic beverages are expensive because of taxes). Spent :near US$100 (two people: entry, main, +1 more /... More

Very bad!. For the price of 22 dollars they serve "rissoto" with the cheapest local rice. The waiter are lies. They try persuade you that the rice that they use is the "Arborio", as it has to be in rissoto. When I ask to show the package and the waiter didn't want, lieing that they buy in big package without... More
