You can have a nice time in a fine environment, it's a bit expensive, but worth it. Good to visit with family and/or friends.

Where to start on Riviera...well first off, it's an iconic (Italian?) restaurant in the Urdesa neighborhood. I was there with a group of students from a local company to have lunch together. There was a very nice sized lunch crowd of executive class patrons. Note: in Ecuador typical lunch crowds are a mixed class even in the most basic of... More

One of the better restaurants in the city. I had a spaghetti dish and pizza. We spent around $120 for four people (four entrees, one appetizer, two beers, two mineral waters). I was impressed w their service. The manager was very pleasant.

This is a classic place to visit in Guayaquil if your looking for not too complicated Italian food. I mean food is good enough in comparison to place, location and prices. Nothing to fancy everything ok. If you want to impress your business partners don't go there. If you want to have a nice family dinner for sure you can... More

Best Italian restaurant in Guayaquil. Been going there for 10 years and never have been disappointed, the quality is always excellent and fresh even when it's full. The prices are high but worth it from time to time to celebrate something special .

From the outside, you might not choose to enter, but this restaurant is worth a stop. It is certainly on the pricey side when it comes to Ecuador, but the food is really well-prepared and the attention of the staff is great.
