Italian / Peruvian with an endless menu.
The duck wasn't really extraordinary but in general food was good. Service was good. Not too pricy.

I was warned this place is expensive but maybe the food would be exceptional. However the food was some of the worst I've had in Lima. I ordered an Angus steak, rare. It came rare, but it was hard to believe it was Angus. Very chewy and approx 1/4 was fat I could not eat. The papas fritas are frozen and low quality crinkle cut, a travesty in the land of the potato. The salad was a strange mix of tasteless rubbery cheese, corn, tomato and leaves, plus a few (approx 4) slices of avocado. My partner ordered a pepperoni pizza which was ok, just ok. The wine list was average and expensive. I ordered a malbec for 150 soles, it was ok but quite average and I would not buy again considering I've had much much better for half that price. The restaurant itself tries to be Italian but it felt like an eccentrics play room, with bottles of cheap whiskey hanging from the ceiling and some random posters of Italian models and Al Pacino. Very strange.

Overpriced.
Poor wine list.
My fish was served with a small little bug... I had to grab waiter's napkinand kill the bug. No apologies from management.
Portions are huge. My guests' food looked ok. The fried calamari tasted ok.
Will not return.

An incredible complete and huge table of fare. Seafood italian style, pasta dishes, wide variety of meats and also typical peruvian dishes. What a choice. Watch out, the portions are very generous indeed. Service is friendly and helpful. The decor is definately like a popular Tratoria in Italy. Maybe a bit overbearing. Food is between average to very good. We had 4 different dishes which were ample to share between 6 people. However we found thee place pricy evan a bit overpriced for Lima standads of this kind of eatery.
