We came back from our colca trek craving pizza. We came with some friends and were pleasantly surprised by how good the pizza was. We each got an individual pizza. Everything was fresh and delicious. Even the lemonade was fresh and a huge amount. So if your looking for pizza this is the place. Is authentic and not hipster, so you can have any topping you can think of.

One of the best pizzas we had in our 6 month travels in whole south america. We even had pizza for dessert. Service was great.

This is probably the best pizza I’ve had in South America. I was extremely satisfied and wanted to go back the next day. Make sure you aren’t in a hurry to go somewhere because the service was slow, but that didn’t bother me. The large pizza was perfect for 4 people and we ordered bruschetta (highly recommend). Don’t waste your time going to other pizza places in Arequipa, this is the best one!!

We went for dinner on a Friday evening and stumbled, more by accident, into this place. The atmosphere was appealing and we got a nice table out in the backyard. After that the experience worsened and our satisfaction declined. The waiter wasn’t to friendly and impressed more by his absence than anything else. We ordered six pasta dishes (apparently our worst mistake, pizza seems to be their main focus). It took at least 30 minutes for the first dishes to arrive (4 portions of lasagne) and this was the point where the experience (and the amount we tipped) reached bottom, because 4 out of 6 dishes arrived, but the remaining two didn’t arrive for another 15 minutes. Therefore most of my friends were finished with their meal while I was still waiting. The dish itself (I had cannelloni with a ricotta and spinach filling, topped with a tomato sauce and cheese) was decent, but far from well seasoned (and neither salt nor pepper were provided).
All in all was our visit far from satisfying, the service was just bad and the food was not good enough to make up for the other aspects.
The place might be good for pizza, but I can’t recommend it for anything else.

I went for lunch and ordered a medium pizza with Speck ham and Italian blue cheese. It was delicious and very generous. I first thought it wouldn't fill me up, but oh was I wrong. My favourite bit was the Chili Olive Oil (with capital letters, it was that good!) which gave the pizza a tasty twist.
Great service, very relaxing terrace in the back and in the shades for absolute quiet.
Bravissimo!!!
