Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great food and great service! The pizza dough was very light and full of flavour. The pasta was also lovely, and food was the right amount for two! Luis was our waiter and he did a great job also.

We had the perfect pasta at this restaurant! The meals look and taste really good. We believe this restaurant is good value for money. Also, we had a hard time trying to eat at other famous restaurants in Cusco and in this one there was...no trouble at all! Maybe it is not so famous yet. I am sure it will be soon, because it is simply one of the best pasta we ever had!More

Try the Dulce pizza! Came back for a second a few days after the first. Six cooks busy away in the background. Excellent food and service

Wow! Incredible food, lovely atmosphere and attentive and polite service. Henry, our waiter made sure we had a great experience and everything was served in a timely manner. We had the house salad and tartar to start - both superb. Then we had the mariscos...pasta and mushroom risotto for mains and they were both outstanding. Delicious. Highly recommend. Thanks Henry! 😊More

Very good food. If you like italian food, this is the place to go. Staff were very professional. Richard was our waiter. Gave us good recommendations, was friendly and polite. When walking in the restaurant, you can see the chefs at work. If i could,...I would come again. Would give 5 out of 5 but we were seated at the very top of the restaurant. I think there was some kind of AC running on the roof. The noise was a little annoying. If you can, don’t sit upstairs.More

This restaurant offers a delicious mix of Italian cuisine with Peruvian ingredients. It was a great option to motivate the kids to try new food, they order pizza and pasta as usual but this time with new flavors. They could enjoy the delicious Peruvian food...and were more open to new things.More

We sat out on a balcony, nice view of city life below. I had the fettuccine Bolognese and enjoyed it very much. Limited gluten free options for my wife who went with the mushroom risotto. She enjoyed her meal although they had to remake it...as she asked for no Parmesan. 15 minute wait to redo. Luis was our server and did a nice job.More

Atmosphere felt more sophisticated, but no need to dress up either (only had hiking clothes for our trip). Servers were all very nice. Our server Richard spoke English and was able to help us customize a pizza that we would enjoy! I cant remember the...name of the mocktail I got but it was refreshing and sweet. You get a starter of bread and olives which were delicious. We had pizza and a Caesar salad for the main course. It was all very good! It all came in a timely manner. Neat spot just off from one of the main squares.More
