VERY GOOD ITALIAN FOOD

As a Surf Guide been coming back with a lot of passengers and they all agree with me. You can have 14 different kinds of Pizza and the best pasta dishes around. If you are around, drop by, try it you will like it.

We were one of two tables being served when we had an early dinner. They were quick to take our order and then we had to wait an extremely long time for food and drinks. The drinks didn't get to us until after we had been served our garlic bread and pizza. They both had gigantic iceberg sized chunks of... More

We had pizza and 4 cheese gnocchi, The pizza was good, the gnocchi was uneatable. The owner/manager was really nice and changed the gnocchi to one with tomato sauce which was fine. The place is pricy compared to Peru the media pizza was 38 soles. All around nice but not more We won't be coming back.

Pure traditional Italian food made with quality ingredients. The best place for a late night dinner or to navigate on internet eating the world's best cannelloni!

I spent 2 months vacations in Mancora, Peru. I found one little piece of Italia over here. How I love pasta I've tried El Italiano Restaurant. Crazy, the pasta is done at the time, and the sauce looks like in Rome. The people that works there very fun and educated. They speak italian and play nice italian music too. So,... More

However there was one young man who had an interesting name that slips my mind who was working extremely hard and was keeping things together for what seemed... More

Walked past first night even though manager/waiter was very pushy trying to get us inside and normally wary of restaurants needing to do this and didn't check on trip advisor. Very surprised to see it quite high on trip advisor from people with only 1 or 2 previous reviews rating very highly. Although he was pushy his restaurant was always... More
