Nazca is a modern inspired take on Peruvian food. The staff were warm and welcoming. The food was delicious. We tried a bottle of Peruvian rose (I forget the brand), which was fine, but not exceptional. Causita, cebiche and lomo saltado were all excellent.

Alpaca and guinea pig aren't quite popular with the American palate, so to offer them would be disadvantageous for us at this time. That said, we're happy to know you enjoyed our food. We hope our service will be its match next time. Best, Nazca...More
