Sehr lecker

Die Pizza Marinara und auch die glutenfreien veganen Nudeln mit Tomatensauce und Gemüse waren lecker! Wir würden sie weiter empfehlen!

Pros: Vegan, Glutenfreie Optionen , Nette Bedienung

Alright spot if you want something different

If you're in Puerto Lopez and craving some non-Ecuadorian food then I'd recommend this place. There are a couple veggie/vegan options like bruschetta, marinara pizza, and pasta. I had gnocchi and wasn't very impressed, it was a tad overcooked and not overly flavorful, but I heard from others that the pizza was good. I'm not sure if the dough is vegan though, you should confirm with the chef. For gnocchi and water I paid $10.

The Italian cuisine that is just a few steps away from the shores of Puerto Lopez is delighting locals and travelers from all over the world who come to bask under the brilliant and beautiful Ecuadorian sun.

Roberto Zumafen, a retired hockey player from Cortina d'Ampezzo, opens his doors every day listening to the sounds of the waves, the wind and the ocean.

“I like the beach more than the mountains,” said Roberto, who first came to Ecuador in 1995 when he was in his sport season. “That's why I'm here in Puerto López.”

Cortina is a skiing town snugged between the Dolomitic Alps in the northern part of Italy. It’s one of the most touristic places in the country known worldwide for its food, traditions and winter sports among its frozen mountain range and it’s where the 2026 Winter Olympics will be held.

“I’m following my family’s tradition,” he said. “They’ve always had restaurants in Cortina but my idea was different since we have a different climate and crowd here on the beach.”


The Pizzeria Trattoria has a variety of dishes to enjoy, including pastas, lasagnas, Gnocchi (Ñoqui), and a terrific pizza prepared in a traditional Neapolitan style.

The restaurant is entering its sixth year in business and last Roberto and his wife Monica opened an Italian ice cream shop that’s keeping everyone cool and happy in this little fishing town where the sun beats down most of the time.

“I'm glad to be here,” said Roberto. “I met my wife here in Ecuador and we prefer living here than in Europe.”

Il Capuccino has prices ranging from $6 to $15 per person, and every month they have promotions on house dishes. Personal pizza start at $6

VEGETARIAN LASAGNA: with zucchini and mushrooms $9 GLASS OF WINE: $3 – $5 BRUSCHETTA al pomodoro, and BRUSCHETTA SUPREMA with ham, mozzarella $4.5 MARE E MONTI: pasta with fresh tomato sauce, shrimp and mushrooms $14 COFFEE: Italian espresso $1.9 l American $1.5 ITALIAN GELATO: ice cream portion $1.5

Absolutely perfect

I had a Marinara and I still don't find words for it. It was the best Pizza since a very long time. The dough was absolutely perfect and the rest absolutely delicious. The owner even brought me real olive oil extra vergine, as soon as he found out that I'm a Pizzalover.
Super friendly owner and nice atmosphere with good music. Unfortunately all the bars at the beach (1 block away) have loud music, so you hear that too.

Pros: delicious italian food, fresh products, friendly staff

Cons: serves meat
