Best Risotto de Lomo Saltado in town!

Danica is a great place, nice clean, staff is friendly, well located and the food is great. Its a mixture of Italian-Peruvian I think, very nice. Ingredients are fresh and dishes innovative.

a local casual restaurant with Italian influenced Peruvian food. There are many choices- pastas, risottos, and, of course, beef dishes. There was only one fish on the menu the evening we ate there-salmon Our choices sounded Italian, but when we tasted them, the Peruvian influence was evident. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the food. The price was reasonable- $30... More

Wide variety of starters, incredible pastas and the best desserts in town. I went to av. El Polo, close to the American Embassy.

We really enjoyed our meal here. We had a nice starter of bruschettas with different toppings and then I had a fresh beef ravioli in a mustard sauce and my wife had a lomo saltado with pasta. Sound a bit weird but muy rico! Nice atmosphere and service. We will return.

The restaurant decoration is really nice. They serve Italian-Peruvian food which is very good. The desserts are highly recommended.

Conveniently located in Miraflores. We went there as an alternative since the place we had planned to go could not accommodate us. We were not disappointed. The food was very good and the service prompt and courteous.

The food was decent and service was good, they managed to quickly set up a table for 7 people. One of the most popular dishes is the lomo saltado risotto, tasty yet lacks the wow factor. I would say a decent place for a quick lunch!

Great place. It would seem that you were in an italian movie, not italy itself, but close scenario. This restaurant combines italian and peruvian food alike. I recommend eating pizza. Quiet place to eat and thats it, no party.

The pace is decorated in a dull but comforting way. All the members of the staff are very polite and care for the clients, especially the administrator of the "Emilio Cavenecia" avenue local. I am a frequent visitor at this restaurant and all I can tell is that the quality and ingredients is always very high. Also, they many options... More
