Cicciolina offers a wide variety of tapas, pastas, and other dishes that use Peruvian ingredients. Everything is perfectly prepared and presented and the service is excellent. This is the best restaurant in Cusco, in my view. We ate there twice during our short stay and probably would have gone back again, if we had the time.

With hanging flowers and windowside eating nooks at the bar, eating at Cicciolina almost feels like being in the European countryside. We came here for a late lunch of tapas and starters and sat at the bar. We shared a large house selection of tapas, red trout ceviche, cuy causa, and bread with brie. Without exception, these were delicious and... More

This is a lovely place, up the stairs from a plaza in an old colonial house. Our Peruvian relatives recommended it and also that we make reservations, and they were right on both counts. The dining room is small but very stylish, and there is a bar that serves the same food in a less formal setting, as well as... More

We arrived early, only to find the restaurant was booked solid. So we found a table in the bar. We opted for the tapas and a nice Argentina Malbec, as recommended by our waiter. Food was excellent, wine was superb and the staff outstanding. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is excellent. Atmosphere and staff are wonderful. The food is creative, interesting, and delectable. Cannot go wrong here. Went for a birthday dinner and then returned the next day for lunch. Between our group of eight we can vouch for 16 dishes or so. Go!

No table available - as we were told rather "harshly" by a rather stern lady at the entrance - who even refused to let us wait until a table would be ready. But we were told the food is good nonetheless!

Two friends and I had a great meal here! We got there a Saturday night with no reservations and had to wait 15 mins at the bar for a table (not a problem since we needed a well deserved drink after the inca trail!) we sat in one of the bar tables but I do believe there is a cover... More

Great atmosphere, pretty good service and amazing food. Had guinea pig confit - a great way to try guinea pig if you don't want to go whole hog.

Nice place to have a drink and some Peruvian appetizers- I would recommend the MAP Cafe well over this one for some real WOW dining.
