“Great Food and Great Staff -- free wifi”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I've eaten at at least 15 different places in Lima and Danica stands out. This place was recommended to me by a coworker who lives in Lima and it was one of the best meals that I had. The decor and clientele are really eclectic, they have free wifi and my waiter "Freddy" was really great and recommended a few dishes. I had the Pumpkin Ravioli with Beef, which should not have tasted good but was delicious. I also had a Pisco and the Cuatros Leches Cake. I gained 5 pounds in Lima but it was worth it.

“A good option”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Danica is a casual restaurant. Not a high-class cuisine, it offers though nice dishes, of italian style but with a touch of peruvian flavour. Public here is high-class San Isidro style, so expect a casual night but with good atmosphere and good food. It can get a bit crowded -and then service a bit slow- but it is always a good option.

“Too much salt”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We came here to celebrate a birthday and found that everything was over seasoned and my Lomo Saltado Risotto had way way too much salt. The service this time around was also rather slow and the food could have been served at a higher temperature.

“Average Italian Food in Lima”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Not bad but not the best Italian we had in Lima (Rigoletto was better). We had smoked salmon and Beef in Mushroom sauce. My beef was undercooked significantly, but they did fix it. The salmon was good, nothing great, the beef quality good but also not great. A bit over priced for the quality, but still not bad food. Upstairs was nice view, but mediocre service as servers stayed downstairs.
