I heard about this Italian pizza place from a local Peruvian and I am so glad that I went! This is the best pizza that I have had in my 5 months of travelling. The owner comes from Italy and you definitely tell from the the handmade crust, pizza salsa and fresh veggies he uses. I ordered the vegetarian pizza... More

Aurelio makes the best real italian artesanal pizza! In the month I stayed in Mancora, i ate here literally (no exageration!) every second night. Especially recommend the Supertano Pizza and the Veggie Lasagna! Bella italia!

OK, we arrived at quarter to three pm. Bad idea, but we'd just got into town, tired and hungry, and we didn't know better. On the main drag where this place sits, it was the only pizza+pasta place open. Foolishly, we didn't take the hint and go away and get a snack at a beach-bar. Why don't these guys just... More

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.

Thank Joe C
