“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Visited this tiny gem as it was in the guide book and it didn't disappoint. Only 4 tables and the pizza oven in a small room made for a pleasantly warm atmosphere (both mood and temperature) on an otherwise chilly night. The chef was happy to make some minor alterations to the pizza on the menu, although expect to be asking in Spanish (no bad thing!). You can see your food being prepared literally right next to your table. Moderately pricey, but worth a visit if you fancy a taste of traditional stone baked pizza.

“Quaint and inexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Found this little gem quite by accidnet as we were lookign for a quick bite before we turned in. Order the wood fired pizza and beer which was quite tasty and asked the owner to switch the music from typical American rock to the pan flute peruvian style which set the ambience. Great little corner to relax and get a yummy pizza.

“Felt like Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Tiny unassuming place, only a couple of tables in the same room with the big wood oven and countertop prep area. You can't help but watch them make your food, it's like being in the family kitchen. The owner was friendly, he took pictures of our group with 5 different cameras and never stopped smiling! One of our pizzas got a little well done on one side, so they brought only the good half to the table for us to start on while they remade another half pizza for us. That's good customer service!
A larger variety on the menu with local and traditional ingredients, great quality and atmosphere. This place is right around the corner from the Casa Andina Koricancha, a must if you are in the area.

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Wood fired oven made this pizza good. Nice thin crust. Big selection of toppings and menu has English translations. The pizza itself had lots of cheese but light on the meat toppings. Good pizza

“Pizza - close and personal in Cusco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Noticed walking past but didn't realise how small this restuarant was until going in. Not much bigger than a phone box but what a great pizza and atmosphere. The pizza was great and the owner and his crew were friendly and on hand (actually within arm's length) for refilling the wine. About 8pm three musicians wandered in and played some traditional music rounding off a very memorable, early dinner. Great atmosphere and great pizza - and they won my gold kangaroo Award
