Amazing Italian food. Charcuterie plate, bruschetta, pizza, wine. Ate here three times in our week stay in Cusco. Management gave us free limoncello each time we ate here. Everyone was so friendly and attentive.

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at Palacio del Inka. They were spot on. We enjoyed the company of the owner, the primitivo wine, the wonderful thin crust pizza and amazing tiramisu. Highly recommend this place!!
