Pizza was only okay, and a bit pricy for the small portion size. Probably paid a premium for the location (at Plaza de Armas). This is a mediocre restaurant to be skipped, given the other selections near by.

Pizzeria Don Marcelo, located on the eastern corner of the large main square in Cusco is a faux-Italian restaurant that this is a pretty good food. The chicken breast soup with vegetables and pasta is a winner. The pieces of chicken are large and tender....More

We came here for a late afternoon lunch, the place wasn't crowded but the service was terrible and it took ages to get seated, and even longer to place our orders. Food took forever to arrive and was awful when it did - definitely the...More
