Very nice, good, English-speaking staff and menu. Good Italian food, not Italian-like food you'll find other places.

I had dinner here, the environment is nice and i could feel the religious vibe while dining..it is great for a romantic date. The food was good, not a wow, but in the average. The plus of this restaurant is the location, really authentic and special! In general, i recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

The location is ideal if your are touring the monastery around lunch or dinner when dinner is available. The decor is spectacular. The food was fantastic. We just thought the service was stuffy.

We stumbled into La Trattoria for Sunday brunch and liked it so much that we returned later in the week for dinner. The food was sublime, the service was excellent, and the dining rooms were attractive, intimate and comfortable. Best restaurant experience in Arequipa!

The staff and food will knock your socks off. From starters to dessert this place has something for everyone. Homemade pasta, pizza, traditional Peruvian fare from Seafood to Lamb everything I have had is fabulous. Next door to the Monastery in the old town of Arequpia. Lunch and Dinner.

This was a lucky find after I had seen the light in the doorway of the monastery. Fantastic ambience, really delicious food, and our waiter Jonathan, was excellent, Sadly I was in Arequipa for just one night on business. I will come back one day with my wife especially to visit La Trattoria del Monasterio. Can't wait!

It's a little difficult to see this restaurant because its embedded in the church walls. We met Jonathan on the street when we were asking for directions for the restaurant part of town. He said he was on his way to work as a waiter at Trattoria. We looked at the menu outside then entered. Our lucky break. There are... More

Actually requested if they could turn it down a little and it was just that, a little. Food was liked in general, I think we liked 6 out of... More

- Only great things to stay: quaint setting, friendly and efficient staff and most importantly, outstanding menu and food! I don't think there is one dish that is not delicious - the best in Arequipa
