If you want an enjoyable meal in a pleasant environment this is the place to go. It's located on the south edge of the city on Montalvo, just down the street from the waterfall. Unlike most of the restaurants in Baños the restaurant was spacious with lots of room between tables so that you don't feel packed in. The environment... More

We visited on Easter day, we ended up here because another recommended Italian near by was full. The place is very simple, the owner very friendly. We ordered two pizzas. First of all they were extremely small (half size of a regular pizza anywhere in the world). Neither of our pizza had tomato sauce on it (although the sauce was... More

My sister was so excited to take us to Papagallo - she and her husband had eaten here during their last trip to Banos. We were not disappointed! The owner has been a chef in Italian restaurants for several decades, all over Europe. It shows! The food was very good and we highly recommend it. Don't miss the Tiramisu!

We wanted a light-ish lunch and went for a funghi pizza and a cannelloni. Both were delicious. The pizza was thin-crust and fresh. The cannelloni was creamy and delicious. Service was fast and good. Oh and the place has good Wi-Fi.

I went with a group of friends to enjoy some Italian food in Ecuador. All around, everyone enjoyed their dishes. The pizza was delicious and had just the right amount of sauce (this is difficult to find in Ecuador). I also sampled the lasagna, "caesar" salad, and house wine, which were equally as tasty. However, don't expect this caesar salad... More

The food was delicious and the owner was extremely nice to our three year old son who loves to run around everywhere. The owner was kind enough to turn the television on and put cartoons for him on the two occasions that we went there. Def. delicious food and a must for those that pay a visit to Banos!

This little restaurant was a delight to find while traveling in Ecuador. Though the owners are from Ambato, they certainly can cook Italian cuisine and the menu is wonderfully varied, the food fresh and it's always a bonus to listen to Andrea Bocelli singing in the background. If you are on a budget, this is not a place that you... More

Spacious location and good Italian food. We have eaten there several times in the past year, always delighted, never sick. The portions are moderately sized, not huge. The prices are reasonable. The owner is wonderful. Location is good for families as it faces the community park and fields. The gusano , a brightly painted tram, can be boarded outside the... More
