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. We had a basic basil, tomato, garlic pizza and ate the entire thing. The ingredients...

We went to this restaurant because of the review that said "best pizza in the country". If this is the best pizza in Ecuador then this country is in trouble. We ordered a large pepperoni pizza. It had a thin crust(ok) some cheese and some pepperoni. It tasted ok but for the price $14.30 with the 10% added tip you... 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 an open feeling, breezy place in the heart of Montanita. As many street vendors as...
