The food at this restaurant was very good. A fusion of Italian and Peruvian flavors make for delicious flavors. On top of the great food, the restaurant provides a wonderful ambiance. Separate rooms make the experience both charming and more private with less tables around you. Truly a treat.

If you are of the means to visit this cloistered trattoria adjacent to the monastery where nuns once were cloistered, do, do! The dining provides privacy (quiet/romantic) as it is a series of small rooms carved out of the monastery where there is external access. The food is a real standout.

We had a lasagne and a fettucine with lamb here.This was the best meal outside Lima during our 2 week trip through Peru,beaten only by the ceviche in La Mar,Lima. The lasagne was delicious but the fettucine was outstanding.Go early or book!

We started out with high expectations but as the night went on our enthusiasm dwindled. Service was virtually non existent, being a couple we were far down the pecking order. Nobody really spoke to to enquire how things were etc .Large parties were given the attention while our waiter disappeared as soon as anybody else came in .The food was... More

A great choice as something for everyone! Some in our party wanted a hearty Italian meal (soup and pasta). Others something light (pizza). Others still lighter (salad)....and one of us wanted to try something Peruvian (stuffed pepper). Service friendly and impeccable. Food tasty

We had dinner at La Trattoria and it was excellent. The fresh pasta is superb and the home made bread is excellent. The service was friendly and efficient. A nice address.
