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

We just happened to be walking by & thankfully stopped in for a delicious meal! It's a cute, cozy little place with only 4 tables but service is fast & super friendly. There are some really good pictures of this place from other posters that show the size pretty well. Everything is homemade & fresh & so yummy! While waiting for our food we were served warm garlic bread made fresh & perfectly crispy in the brick oven. My husband & kids had pizzas which they loved (cheese & the other I can't remember because my daughter just started naming off the toppings she wanted!). I had the homemade lasagna which I personally thought was amazing. As someone else posted, this is a great option when you can't do the lomo one more time! The place, owner & food are fantastic & I'd return in a second!

Had a lot of fun & great pizza in this hole in the wall place. Staff was really nice, owner has a lot of personality. The wood burning stove makes such a difference in flavor. Definitely worth a stop.

Found this spot while walking between my hotel and the main square. The smell of a wood burning pizza oven enticed me in. I was warmly greatest in this quaint place. A nice menu of pizza and pastas made for a tough decision. The pizza was delicious although the crust could have been crispier. I would return.

This tiny pizzeria is a real find. It's a single room with only 4 tables - you often have to share - with the oven right there. The pizzas are imaginative, and I would recommend the Cuzquena, washed down with...well...a Cuzquena, as it happens. As a matter of archaeological note, the building is a very handsome piece of Inca architecture. The internal walls are 13th-14th century and thus predate the Incas, pertaining to the Killke culture. It's not cheap - a mid size one (suits a single healthy appetite) is about 27 soles, but if you're sick if the sight of aji de gallina or lomo saltado, it's a good spot!
