Description: 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.

The restaurant located in a restored residential setting is an oasis from the business neighborhood. With indoor and outdoor dining the restaurant was a amazing suprise.
It was raining so we opted to dine inside a glassed in dining room. The service was prompt and excellent. The large and varied menu selection was a concern but our meals were excellent.

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 out and dine here. The staff here was very attentive, the food was over the top fantastic,the prices reasonable, and the portions were sufficient. I hope to one day dine here again.

We enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at Carmines. We start with a mozzarella, red pepper, and ham appetizer. Perfect with nice glass of white wine. Our main plates were red snapper and pasta with shrimp and Italian sausage. Perfect. The wine list is extensive and expensive. We did find a nice bottle for $50.
