This was by far the best food we had in Cusco, my family still raves about the food here, go early or make a reservation. Not the cheapest but worth every penny.

Thoroughly recommend! The owner runs a very tight ship, the staff are attentive and the food was top class cuisine. We sat at the bar because at 6.30pm this was the only place left. Great atmosphere as they have a kitchen at the bar where they make the pasta. Thanks Trip Advisor for recommendation!

We met some locals in Lima and asked them where we should eat in Cuzco and they immediately said Cicciolona. The food was beautifully presented, creative and very tasty. I had a linguine pasta and my husband had the alpaca steak with yucca root puree. Both were delicious! The restaurant is small and can be very crowded, so the ambiance... More

Not cheap but worth every penny. The perfect place to enjoy food, wine and friendship. The dishes are prepared with detail and the combinations are amazing. The only place in Cusco so far that also has a cheese platter as dessert and that makes a decent Bloody mary.

This was our favorite restaurant we visited in Cusco out of a total of 5. The place is pretty small and we did not have a reservation so we had to wait about 20 minutes. If they take reservations I would recommend one. We got authentic Peruvian cuisine in a really unique atmosphere. The food was very tasty. Would put... More

Me and my partner went there for a "pre-4day trek" meal to treat ourselves. The staff were friendly and attentive, the place was busy and we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table but it flew by as we enjoyed a glass of wine while we waited. The food was incredible. Beetroot raviolli was to die for. The... More

We went 3 times to this fantastic tapas in Cusco. It is amazing, and of course very good food. All tapas are good, depends of course of your taste but we did enjoy it very much
