“Fantastic Pasta!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Pasta which would be good in Italy....and of course with excellent seafood readily available around here.
Try for example Cangrejo Canelloni au Gratin. (Crab-filled cannelloni au Cheese)
Not the most 'happening' place in Miraflores. If that is what you want try Cebecharia La Mar for a real buzz (and long wait on many occasions if you do not come early). But Donatello is really excellent in its own way.
Where a bourgeois Peruvian brings his wife and mother on Sunday for lunch.
Decor sort of Mediterranean. Perfectly acceptable.
My "bottom line" is the quality of the food, so my rating has to be 5 stars.

“Casual & consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

This resturante is casual and consistent. It is reasonably priced and the staff is considerate. But check the times because they sometimes close early & observe many holidays. It is best to call to see if they are open.

“Loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

A favorite with the locals. Service was great. No rush. Time to relax and enjoy those pisco sours. The gnocchi with spiced chicken was yummy as was the artichoke and mushroom lasagna.

“Best Italian Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

One of my favorite places in Lima for Italian food. Very good service, well located and accessible prices. Their pizzas, pastas and desserts are superb.
