Every once and a while I like to take a break from Peruvian food and have pizza (usually a good bet). This is a very nice and friendly place that is reasonably priced. a good find in a small town that lives off of tourists. The owner had a pleasant blend of Italian and Peruvian mannerisms (I like both cultures... More

We were lucky enough to stumble upon Il Piccolo Forno when they were brewing Chicha Morada. It smelled AMAZING, and we tried a couple, confirming it's the best we've had in Peru. We had a couple of calzones and bruschetta, both of which were delicious. I wish I could have come back for more! The owner was warm and gracious... More

Very different from the touristic-vibe of Ollantaytambo, this little pizzeria is a really cute spot. The owner is super nice, and we had two delicious calzones, just like in Italia. Very conforting after the climbing down from Macchu Pichu and Aguas Calientes, not expensive, and they had good looking desserts and biscuits (some gluten free and healthy). Nice place to... More

Who would think that the little Inca town of Ollantaytambo would have such a good Italian Restaurant. It is located down a alley of the main plaza. There is only 5 tables in this place. I had the best Lasagna ever, it was huge. More for a couple than one person. Wife had an excellent pizza (yes I ate that... More

The owner is Italian and very nice, he told me he has been in Peru for over 20 years. I ordered the pizza here, though not comparable to the pizza I ate in Naples ,lol, it's much better than any of the pizza in the main square in Ollytaytambo. I think it's the dough!!! I also bought some energy balls... More

This is a tiny restaurant with no windows and five tables, so we were a little hesitant going inside--but once in the door it felt bright and warm and the food was delicious. The salad with sesame seeds, mango and chicken was so fresh and full of surprising tastes. The pizza was topped with similarly fresh and inviting vegetables and... More

Best restaurant in Ollantaytambo, it was small, cozy and near the plaza. They had great vegan and veggie options, the pizza and lasagna was great! Didn't get to try the desserts but the Mango Cheesecake looked amazing!! Next time I am in Peru, I will definitely be coming back here!
