My husband and I arrived late to Cusco and intended to eat at another restaurant. We walked past this place and decided to stop in. The owner, who is from Venice, made us a customized meat/cheese/bread plate and was incredibly friendly. The food was amazing- on par with the best Italian food I've ever experienced. We visited a second night... More

My husband and i had just arrived in Cusco on Dec 31st, after an exhausting day and while we were walking toward a car rental, we saw La Cantina and we immediately decided we would have early dinner there! And our choice could not be more right... Since ambience is not what mostly characterizes most restaurants in Cusco, we immediately... More

I went here because a friend of mine said they served some very good pizza ag this place and that it wasn't expensive. Boy was I wrong. The price for the pizza and a bottle of water were very high. I pay less in most places in Europe. And to pizza wasn't even that good. Too much salt to my... More

Dear Customer, I would just make you see that all the products we use for our pizza come from Italy, then at the prices of Europe should be added the costs of transport and customs! Just one question: why come to drink water in a wine bar?? Sincere greetings Raffaele More

After a full day tour to "Vale Sagrado" we were dropped off in front of this tiny and cozy place. Italian wine, fresh bruschetas, arugula salad and an authentic tiramisu completed our perfect day! The owner receives everyone as your family! Enjoy an amazing Italian meal.

This is a must visit in Cusco, esp. if you are a bit fed up with all the peruvian style restaurants and the "menu turistico". Actually you cannot compare these with "La Cantina". We had an outstanding evening with many dishes starting with cheese and sausages, followed by lasagne and pizzas and finishing with some nice cakes. And naturally with... More

This was my favourite place when I was in Cusco, Just sit down with a glass on wine and some cheese and maybe some mortadella and salami and just enjoy, have a chat with Raffaele who is really knowledgeable about wine. Great Products and excellent wine!

The place is VERY small - about half a dozend tables - with the pizza oven and wine bar tucked into a corner and a tempting array of wine bottles -... More
