Good menu. Food and nonalcoholic beverage amounts for 20$ tops, per person. The place is comfy and quiet. Good location by the main square.

Good Italian food. Compared to other options the price is not very cheap, but in general Peru is cheaper than most places so it is not too bad. Ate here twice as the place offerrs great variety of food.

We randomly found this place whist walking through the main square during our first night in Cusco. A lucky find. Very good, no nonsense food at excellent prices. Quick service and menus in English. The pisco sours were as good as any we had in Lima and the large fruit juices were excellent. Recommended.

This restaurant is one of the best low priced restaurants in Cusco, and the portions are ample. The service is outstanding, and the food is outstanding. The prices are most reasonable. This is a must go to place!

Not a bad place. Only 20 soles for an average pizza. Pizza has a thin crust and a medium is adequate for one person. Would come again.

Right at the Plaza de Armas in Cusco, Don Manuel was our options for a quick refreshment to end a perfect afternoon browsing San Blas. We got a table by the window giving us a great view of the Plaza, simply ordered espresso and juices. Service was excellent, juices have a decent size and taste for a fair price (mind... More

While I'm not a huge fan of Peruvian pizza, a guy needs pizza and Papa Johns is too far. Well located in the plaza, we use Don Marcelo take out to supply pizza to our groups. They are prompt both take-out and dine in and have the same staff year in and out without the high turnover common in Cusco... More

We had a pretty shocking experience here but decided to go back a second time, in case it was just a once-off. But no. The service and staff are horribly rude, blatantly uninterested and unhelpful. The gnocchi was old and dry and the meat undercooked. The pizza base was also undercooked, soggy (while the restaurant was mostly empty) and for... More
