Cute place, delicious pizza

Found this little restaurant near our hotel - it was about 10 pm on a Monday and they let us in. Made the pizza right in front of us in the oven and it was delicious! I had the tuna and peppers. I'd heard Bolivia was known for their pizzas which we had a few times when we were there,... read more

Stopped in for a late night dinner. This is a very small, one room place with four tables and a wood fired pizza oven. Carlo himself waited on us and was very friendly. Pizza was good but the experience itself was worth the visit. Prices are very reasonable. Beer and wine are available. Cash only.

Wood - fired pizza cooked right in front of you and convenient takeout, what more can you ask for. Reasonable prices and Carlo us awesome. Cash only, but an ATM is very close. The place is small, but comfortable to sip a beer and wait for your pizza. I highly recommend it if you want to take a pizza to... More

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 nights in a row... 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.
