delicious tapas

Tucked around the corner from the Plaza de Armas, this restaurant offers an assortment of tapas. I had the guinea pig appetizer which was a little like American BBQ. We were served a plate of tapas (Chef's surprise) which were very good. I had an artisanal quinoa beer that was interesting. We had a... read more

We found this gem, tucked away on second floor after entering a courtyard, by accident when another place we wanted to go to temporarily closed due to inspection. Lucky we did, and we went back half dozen times over last 2 weeks. We were blown away by their delicious tapas offerings, as good as or better than some places in... More

We had a couple of meals in Cusco and also in Peru - and have to say, Cicciolina had standards far above the others. For one, the foods were genuinely creative but they didnt overdo it, put maximum two cuisines together with not too many ingredients. Tasty. Waiters right on time. Quality control visible for outgoing meals. Respect for keeping... More

Very nice cosy restaurant. The food was very good and the sea producta very fresh. Service was very quick, I would recommend the black Tagliolini with Shrimps, it was very very good. Starter + Main 80 soles each

Food taste good and service was great but it is safe to say that this is a Italian focus restaurant to appeal to international travelers that are too scare to try the local food. Too expensive for a night out in a city that offers so many other choices with a much better price and more authentic cuisine.

Our travel guide from Inkanatura recommended this place and actually made a reservation on our behalf the night we flew into Cusco. I should have waited a day or so to acclimate to the altitude before my visit as I was unable to actually eat! That said, the place is charming and has an extremely interesting menu and wine selection.... More

This restaurant is transparent, allowing us to watch the chefs at work which I love. The wine list was impressive and our bottle was delicious. The tapas were eclectic with a Peruvian theme, most served on a piece of bread like a crostini. The cheese plate was a little lackluster, but the rest of the meal compensated. We got to... More

Went here two times for breakfast, very good! Yoghurt with fruit was nice, eggs were also great. One minus is that all tasted very sweet, even tomato, seems they use much sugar in the dishes. But overall very good breakfast option!

The menu wasn't as italian or tapas as I would have thought but the food was beautifully prepared and a great value. Their wines by the bottle were great and the atmosphere was a great little escape from the mountains of Peru

Despite its small venue and the possible waiting for you to actually get a location where to put your plate. It has by no means a fantastic food, the olives are awesome, the osobuco is by far the best I have eaten in my life, here they changed my concept of osobuco. So get early or call for a reservation...
