“Great ambience,wonderful italian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is by far the coolest spot to eat around Pisaq. There are nice outdoor and indoor spaces a fireplace sofas next to it, gorgeous. Now the raviolis are dangerous, you may not be able to stop eating them, i fortunately ran out of money so I did not kill myself eating them. The desserts are sublime. Everyone at my table loved their food. Amazing ginger ale, one with strawberry lemon! everything really just wonderful.

“Italian-Peruvian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Tim, from San Francisco, prepares great food in the Trattoria Escondita. I had a chicken parmesan which was enough for two! Good wine, also.

“Great Food - Off the Beaten Path in Pisac”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

As you wind your way out of the small town of Pisac, you turn onto a dirt road and wonder how could anything as good as Trattoria Escondida be located here?

They have a menu that will meet anyone's tastebuds.

The minestrone soup is perfection - nothing needs to be added to enjoy this warmth of goodness.

The deserts are so delicious, I wish they had a sampler platter to enjoy each one.

“Delicious Gem in Pisac”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Food is always delicious. Dishes are fall in love-able. The trucha (trout) is amazzzzing; same goes for the veggie lasgna and pumpkin raviola... and the cesear salad. Tim is really wonderful and puts so much love and attention to the details of everything he makes. The ingredients are top quality, many things coming from local organic farms. The chocolate volcano is well loved by many... try that too. The view is spectacular -- in a quiet part of Pisac. Ah, and the music is great.

“The best place in town...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The service is superb and the food exceedes all expactations. They serve the best vegetarian lasagna I ever try. The trout is also a must with a chocolate volcano for dessert. Thanks Tim for nurturing everyone with love and great food.
