What an awesome place! So funky! ...and the food is great. The place itself is really stylish and the playlist was enjoyable. Also, the waiter and chef were super friendly and helpful. I'd highly recommend!

3 of us went to Pasta Canteen after seeing the reviews for 'cheap eats' in Arequipa. The pasta is delicious and freshly made. Pasta of the day with a lovely salad, bread and filtered water is 19 soles. A bargain for such good, tasty food....More
