Local food place geared very much to the tourist crowd. Good fresh Cuy but 25 soles more than everywhere else. Eat inside at night as it gets chilly. Papa Relleno was amazing

We needed a break from Peruvian food and thoroughly enjoyed going Italian at this charming courtyard hideaway off Plaza San Blas - which has Peruvian specialties as well, BTW. Our mushroom pizza, calzone and mixed salad were all pleasers with the clay oven also supplying fresh baked rolls - yum. When we got chilly, they turned on heaters and brought... More

We’ve been here four times and have never been disappointed. As strange as it may sound, Pachapapa’s is not only good for its local cuisine, but has perhaps also one of the best pizzas in the world! Probably the fresh dough, locally sourced mozzarella and organic vegetables, all baked in a clay oven fired by mountain wood are the drivers... More

The meal my friends and I shared at Pachapapa was one of the best on our trip. The atmosphere is cozy with a beautiful courtyard. The food is absolutely delicious. We ordered two pizzas (one veggie and one with cured alpaca meat), lamb stew, and a special (with stuffed peppers, alpaca meat, and more). We also had the lemonade. Everything... More

This is a charming small restaurant in the San Blas district. I am only echoing the experience of many other reviewers when I praise its charm, its pizza, and its warm atmosphere. Let me share another experience. Cusco's weather is definitely changeable, at least in April when we visited. It was hot and sunny when we arrived, but clouding over... More

Visited this charming restaurant several times during my recent stay. Off the Plazaleta de San Blas, pizzas cooked in an outdoor oven, the best Aji de Gallina, and a great wine list. Warm and cozy!

I wanted to try cuy aka guinea pig in Peru and this was the perfect place to try it. They cook it in a huge, beautiful outdoor clay/adobe oven so it is nice and crisp. It takes about 30 minutes to prepare so I suggest getting an appetizer while you wait. I tried the Alpaca skewers which were also delicious.... More

Wonderful gem of a restaurant tucked away and easily missed. Great food and wonderful ambience! The outside patio very cozy with heaters for warmth. The bread is to die for; we ate there twice and everything we had was very good. Staff is very helpful.

Food, service, ambiance…definitely a highlight for our Peru trip! (My son said we should "give it a review on Tripadvisor and make it more than five stars! :)
