Tasty if not a bit difficult for big groups

Delicious food. Quite friendly waitstaff. Hard for our group of 13 people to get exactly what we want but it was an A- spot

The pizza was so good and tasty, I recommend many to come and order a medium sized pizza. The sangria I ordered was delicious.

I went with a big group and although the service was a little on the slow side, the pizza made up for it and the staff was extremely friendly. An amazing family business that I would definitely return to!

The pasta was great! Big plate and tasty ... Everything I wanted. Service could have been quicker and a few orders among friends were particularly slow but overall the service is average for Peru in general ! Overall happy with the restaurant and would recommend.

The waitress went 3 times to the food store to get ingredients for our meal. The mozzarella was made of cardboard and the gnocchi were very average

Every time we visit mancora the first dinner we have to eat at "el italiano". The owner is a great cook who got his recipes from his italian mother. He creates fresh pastas and gnocchis with delicious tomato or white sauce. The pizzas are not like in italy but in mancora the best. Try the irresistible homemade bruschetta as a... More

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.
