Zingaro is a delightfully elegant restaurant with a varied menu including traditional Peruvian favortes and Italian specialties. Kitchen is glass enclosed so you can watch the chef prefer your meal. A real treat! Our meals were delicious and very elegantly presented. Portions are not as generous as most Peruvian restaurants, but the quality and elegance are well worth the trip.

I'm so crazy about Arequipa, its not even funny! The people of this town make it so special; and ultimately the great service and food at Zíngaro. The ambiance was perfect for a sweet romantic meal with my spouse. We will be back.

We enjoyed our meal at Zingaro very much. Wanted a place where a group of 7 could all find something good to eat. Ordered a mix of fish and traditional dishes (lomo saltado, chupe) and everyone came away happy. Nice service, comfortable atmosphere.

We went for lunch and had the whole place to ourselves which seemed very strange. Maybe the crowd is bigger for dinner. Food was GREAT! My wife's alpaca steak might be her favorite meal in our month in Peru. They also have a de-boned cuy option, which was nice. I wasn't quite ready to de-bone a headed cuy at the... More

After having a late lunch we decided to stop here for a really late appetizer dinner. They had a delicious sampler platter with fried cheese, beef tips, corn salsa among other things. It was the perfect "meal"

As others have mentioned you can see the chefs cooking behind a glass panel at the end of the tunnel like room. Service is quick, efficient. They sell 4 or 5 wines by the glass (from Chile and Spain). I had the recolote de cerdo which was excellent. Essentially pork tenderloin flattened, rolled and stuffed with spinach and a bit... More

This busy little restaurant is perfect if you want a little refinement for your evening meal. The menu was big enough to cater for most people, all main meals were priced higher than most places in Arequipa, roughly 38-45 soles, but very tasty and worth the money

The restaurant is located in a nice cave. The kitchen is integrated behind a glass wall. They have a lot of dishes with peruvian ingredients cooked western style. I had an alpaca stroganoff with Quinoa croquettes, my partner had the alpaca steak with fried Yukka and veggies. The quality of the food was amazing and the service very friendly. Was... More
