There is better pizza in town. Also they might smile when they wait on you but probably not. Dismal vibe. My pizza (pictured) had barely any sauce.

We love the Patata Marea, it's boiled potatoes with cream, bacon and cheese that is baked in a terra-cotta bowl and is served with pita bread! It's amazing! The pizza is cooked in a wood-fire over and it is also really good too. It's a...More

Like a lot of people said get the potato marea starter. It comes with pita bread. It's wonderful. Pizza was in the New York style and good. Would love to come back! No regrets with this choice of restaurant!

The pizza here was very good, friendly staff too. The coffee bar along one side (called Bistro I think) had the best creme brûlée I'd ever tasted.

This was the 3rd pizza place we had been to on our Ecuador trip. The first two were nowhere close to real pizza-we struggled to finish them. However, we went here hoping for some comfort food after struggling with traveler's diarrhea for a few days....More

We eat an excellent pizza, thin crust and Sorrentinos, big raviolis filled with mozzarella and ham. Both were very good, the service was also good and the prices were ok.

Best pizzas of town from huge wood oven. Thin crust, lots of cheese. Good and quick service. It's Montanita, so don't expect very professional service, but friendly and adequate.

Good off-season pricing - most dishes 2X1. The one waiter seems run ragged, while other staff hangs about, but he gets to you eventually. Mostaza y milel - honey mustard sauce, is great, if that is to your liking. Nice open-air set-up which makes for...More
