Antica has some great pizza and pastas. I was in Iquitos on business and the group enjoyed the first night at Antica so much that we returned 2 other times during the week. They have an extensive menu of different red and white pizzas, in addition to many types of pastas and pasta sauces. Every time we went to Antica, I was happy with what I ordered. The restaurant is just half a block away from the Plaza de Armas and very rustic looking.

Really good pizza which was welcome after out time in the jungle. Nicely designed restaurant close to the main square, with balcony over looking the street. Nice place.

Beautiful rustic interior. Lots of log accents. Everything on this menu is outstanding. Both American and Peruvian fare, the pizzas are original and picturesque. The staff are kind and efficient.

Understand that I've been eating Italian-American cuisine on the east coast since birth and currently live in NYC. I am of two minds about this place. On the one hand the big open rooms and dark wooden decor make eating there a unique experience. And, of course, they serve pizza -- or something that resembles it -- which is not something to be taken for granted in Iquitos, so one can argue that any pizza is good pizza there. But the truth is that it was odd. Despite the brick oven the crust was waxy and flaked. It didn't resemble pizza crust as I know it and the mix of toppings was...quixotic...to put it mildly. I understand that Italian pizza is very different from American pizza and so I should expect Peruvian pizza to likewise have a character all its own. The trouble is that there is WAY too much white cheese and too little tomato sauce to call this pizza...in the Italian-American sense of the dish. Sorry, but I thought I should warn you.
