The service and the overall ambiance are fantastic, well worth a visit. The food is ok but not extraordinary. I had very high expectations and I was a tad disappointed. There are many fantastic restaurants in Quito with better Italian food.

This wonderful smart Italian restaurant is tucked off the main rain - you drive in through the front gate and arrive at a wonderful white villa. The front of house staff are very friendly and even thought we didn't have a reservation (they were busy)...More

We visited Carmine for dinner and had a delicious meal. I had the polenta with a selection of three types of mushrooms and gorgonzola sauce, followed by gnocchi al gusto (I had half in four cheese sauce, half in pomodoro sauce) and all was fantastic....More

Had the luxury of dining here with a client. It was a little hard to find, but only because the picture they show of the "home" is actually once you enter into a courtyard. Don't let that stop you. You absolutely must search this establishment...More

One of the most famous Italian restaurant in Quito Ristorante Carmine It was with good luck that when Chef Carmine returned to Ecuador he found an old friend who was leaving the country and who had began the construction of a new Italian food restaurant in Quito. We all know to listen to the wise ones and let Divine Providence do the work, so that is what he did. After a short while, Ristorante Carmine Quito opened its doors in a restored republican house which overlooks a small but ancient plaza with hundred year old trees and a beautiful garden in El Batán. From the outside of the house it looks like a little piece of Europe has been transported to Ecuador and from the inside you will feel like you are eating in an excellent restaurant in Italy.
