Better than pizza we had in Italy

Perfect crust, awesome pizza oven, great service and super fresh ingredients all made this one of the best places ever. Keep in mind that this place is small and when I say small I mean SMALL. Its definitely worth the wait if the tables are full though. My husband and I ended up eating there 2... read more

Good pizza, made right in front of you. Cosy place. No pasta though, only a lasagne. So if you're craving for pasta, you'll have to look further.

We were led to La Pizza Carlo by a Peruvian friend who had gotten married in Cusco. We arrived at this tiny restaurant (4 or 5 tables) on the day we arrived in Cusco, heads pounding from the altitude. We were lucky enough to find Carlo, the owner, there with his pizza-making employee. We had a very nice chat with... More

We discovered this place because we were staying at the hotel across the street. This place is very small and cute. They make the pizza right in front of you and cook it in a oven that is right in the dining area. They have 3 sizes which is perfect if you want a personal or want to share with... More

This place is small but they cook in wood fire oven right in front of you. Very tasty pizza and cheap price. Not much seating room.

I went for a quick lunch. Pizza (for one) seemed a bit small but I was hungry :) good quality, nice and cozy atmosphere, small place and nice vibe. The owners were kind and smiled. I would go back for a bite. Close to the main square in Cusco and other museums.

We where staying across the street at the San Agustin hotel and where very surprised by this very small restaurant. Decoration is nice, with international flags that where sent in by customers hanging from the ceiling. We had a pizza made masterfully in the brick oven just next to our table. My wife had a salad which was very tasty.... More

I went there two times in a week. The first just my boyfriend and I and the place was empty but they were very friendly. The place is very small but is really cool to watch them making your pizza. In the end of the night it was less than 50 soles for both of us. The second night we... More
