My family and I met friends for dinner the last time we were in Lima. The place comes across as upscale but we found it warm and inviting. The staff were very attentive and helpful. All 7 of us ordered pasta dishes and all 7 were just OK. The Putanesca was so salty it had to be remade. Portions were... More

I am from Maryland, USA. The food was wonderful. And priced competitively for the area. Waiters speak English and are very friendly. 2 people with drinks was about S./ 140.00 or about $45.00.

Surprisingly Above par, from what one sees from the exterior. Plenty of seating and vast menu selection. Lasagna and pizzas are among the pasta dishes. I especially enjoyed the excellent pastry and chocolate selection. Good for a cozy snack and coffee too!

I have eaten at Elia's many times over the past 15 years and have never been disappointed with the quality of food or level of service. This is a real classic and classy place to eat. I cannot recommend it more highly. This is where Peruvian couples or families come to enjoy fine Italian food. It's not really on the... More
