If you're in Quito and you know fine dining, Carmine's is a must! The setting is absolutely lovely- the grounds, the art, the lighting, everything! We started off with cocktails and then were greeted by Carmine (a native of New York) who was absolutely charming...More

Food was excellent and served with great presentation. Service was the best. We dined on a patio exposed to exterior but well covered. Hidden jewel of a facility with courtyard and several private and semi-private dining rooms.

Carmine is the only Italian restaurant in the city that can be as excellent as in Italy. All dishes are good but the one I ALWAYS order is the Gnocchi ala Bolognese.

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.
