We stumbled across this small place close to Plaza de Armas in Cusco and weren't dissapointed! The pizza was fresh out the stone oven and very tasty. The quinoa creme however was a bit mooshy and not a taste-highlight. However, we enjoyed the atmosphere and would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for good pizza and cheap drinks.

This restaurant was so good. The salads were fresh and crisp and we'll prepared. We had the colossal pizza and loved it. Cute place. Limited seating so get here early

When we walked in a local claimed it was the best pizza in Cuzco. Didn't go to other places so can't compare, but this was pretty good. Nice cozy place to have some pizza. Didn't try anything else on the menu, though there are non-pizza offerings for those who don't like 'za! Nice and warm in the front room where... More

Very small place with a good vibe and good food. The pizza was excellent quality thin crust and I had the bolognese pasta. Not really authentic food for the region but a good safe stand by when you aren't wanting to challenge your stomach before a 3 day hike. Conveniently located right off of the city square.

When we asked our Peruvian guide for a restaurant recommendation, he suggested we come here. What convinced us was there was no one on the sidewalk trying to lure us in as we had experienced on our walk through the town plaza. The restaurant was clean and the smells were all the enticement needed. We ordered pizza and it was... More

Wanted something different and ended up here. Great little family restaurant. Came here twice and sampled the soups and the pastas. God food and great value when compared to other restaurants in the area (and no hard sell outside).

We wanted a change from the meat-heavy menus of Cusco. Came across this family-run place after being turned away other higher rank places restaurants. It helps if you can speak some Spanish. I got by with a phrase book. I wanted to have pasta after 10 days of a carnivorous diet. Even the higher rated Italian restaurants didn't serve pasta.... More
