Great choice of menus, different pastas and sauces. Staff was friendly and the service was fast. Good price for value especially because the menus are huge.

Our guide recommended this place and it was also highly recommended on TripAdvisor so we decided to try it. I had the seafood risotto and my partner had the mushroom risotto. I love risotto and eat it whenever I can but I thought this one was rather tasteless. I should say that I had a cold and my tastebuds were... More

I cannot get away from the Risotto and Mangiare Benne Restaurante in Cuenca is my go to restaurant for risotto. The buttery risotto was combined with shrimp, clams and fish. It was seasoned beautifully. Please go try this restaurant. Daniel and his staff are excellent and will give you a great dining experience.

After a few weeks of touring Ecuador we were craving a change and this was a blessing. The pastas are famous here- everything homemade with a huge selection to pick from. Absolutely delicious food and totally lives up to the high expectations set by other reviewers.

We have been here more than a dozen times, and have always had a delicious experience. Open kitchen, fresh ingredients, great service. My favorite is their putanesca pizza. It's not on the menu, but they have a great pizza dough, and pasta putanesca, voila! Pizza putanesca!

This is one of the best restaurants in Cuenca. I have never had a bad meal there. I have eaten there many times. Most recently I shared an ensalada cyprese with a dining partner and then enjoyed spinach ravioli with fungi sauce with Tocino. It was Devine, delicious and delectable. I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

I have not tried all of the restaurants in Cuenca, but I have tried quite a few. I rank Mangiare's among the best. It is a great place for a special occasion or just an evening of fine Italian food. The wide variety of pastas and sauces is sufficient to meet most anyone's appetite. The wait staff is very attentive... More
