Good place to go at least once

This place is well located, near the plaza. The prices are quite high but it compensate with the quality of the food and the place itself. I ordered a sopa a la minuta. It was good. I have no complaints about this place. However is not the best place in cajamarca. On the whole, I recommend it

If you are in a hurry, this is not your place. But it's worth the wait. The food is excellent, good variety of dishes and drinks, including vegetarian dishes, pasta and typical peruvian food. The "gnocchis a la huancaína" is one of the best dishes I had ever tasted.

Just off the main square, this elegant Italian/Peruvian restaurant was a very pleasant surprize. Like many local restaurants anywhere, I recommend you order off the daily specials list. This place makes their own pasta on site, and you can taste it. My fiancee had the gnocci--as light as any five-star Italian restaurant in Europe or the US. I had a... More

Seriously, we both ordered the fillet after the waiter pushed it so hard to us and, put bluntly, it was a disaster of a plate. No sauce whatsoever, just a messy and greasy cream "thing". The steaks were supposed to be medium-rare, but they arrived basically well done and as salty as is possible to describe in words. A mouthful... More
