Browsing through Miraflores on our trip to Lima we came across this charming Italian-Mediterranean restaurant. We had been having quite a lot of Peruvian food and decided to take a break and go for our old favorite, Italian. We arrived early for the normal Lima meal time, received a friendly greeting and were shown to our table. We both ordered salads to start, both were very good, very fresh. My husband had the Saltimbocca and I had a shrimp linguine. Both were excellent. We also enjoyed a very good Chianti. There were very few customers as that evening Peru was playing soccer to qualify for the next World Cup games. The owner, then a couple of waiters, then my husband and finally I, all migrated to the bar where the television was tuned in to the game. A few neighborhood locals also drifted in to see the game. We couldn't have been more surprised when a man came in an sat at an antique piano I had been admiring and began playing. His playing was amazing and his repertoire incredible. He played Chilean and Peruvian folk songs and then moved on to classics, then jazz. The owner then treated us to an after dinner Pisco, the best quality I have ever had. So, while we went for the food, we stayed for the fun and the new friends we made. Absolutely go to this restaurant in Lima.
