Very nice pizza restaurant

The owner is Italian and he grows all the ingredients for his pizza toppings. I felt very welcomed here. The pizza and pasta dishes I have tried are very nice. The place is well decorated inside and the prices are good.

Title says it all. We stoped for the lasagna which was advertised on the menu board as a daily special. We had one vegetarian and one carne. Both were microwaved until flattened and crusted to the plate on which they were served... Not what one expects for 26 soles each.

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
