Absolutely divine! Super attentive waiter. Extremely cheap. 18.5 sols for chicken and mushroom pasta, salad and bread. Came out very quickly. Fresh pasta made on site. Perfect place for anyone craving very good quality italian on a budget!

Pasta Canteen is a very cool spot with good pasta. You can basically create your own pasta, and can get a larger portion if you eat as much as me. They have great service as well.

Hi Belinda! We are not able to serve gluten free pasta, unfortunately. Our kitchen is very small and we do get quite busy. Have a lovely stay in Arequipa :)
