El Nomada - Restaurant Mindo - Ecuador

Several restaurants along Mindo's main strip have neon pizza signs, but venture a little further up the road (on way to the waterfalls) and you'll find El Nomada, a cozy Italian joint whose back room is dominated by a brick pizza oven. Like many other area establishments, El Nomada is set inside a rustic wood and thatch building; the plank tables and stools are arranged in alcoves, which heightens the intimate feel of the eatery. Although the menu has a range of Italian dishes–from lasagna to cannelloni and ravioli–the fresh, thin-crust pizzas are the real attraction. Toppings range from ham and pepperoni to eggplant and red peppers. There are vegetarian options as well, but if you can't find what you want, Nomada is more than happy to make pizzas to order. Daily noon-10 p.m., sometimes earlier on Monday nights. Its bar is open until midnight Monday-Thursday and until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
