We had several bad experiences eating out in Cajamarca, even in good rated restaurants. This Pizzeria was the highlight of our stay. Friendly and fast service, great pizza, cold beer and good wine - what else do you need ?

The burrito I had here was just ok. They didn´t shy from using a lot of cheese, which makes sense given the region, but I wouldn´t recommend it to anyone. The restaurant was VERY warm with its adobe oven in the main room. Service was good and the food was well priced, although beers were wildly expensive.

I went with my family after reading opinions on TA, we visited the main location. For us the atmosphere was fine, yes cramped, but the ventilation was not a problem. The pizza was just not good in my opinion. It was undercooked and had no flavor. The sliced chorizo was just barely cooked and so the idea of eating semi-raw... More

Ideally located, this tiny pizzeria with offers a nice assortment of pizzas (and nothing else). Freshly cooked in front of you, the pizzas are good (even if the one with fruits and evaporated milk scared us a bit) and the prices very correct

Come early, it opens at 7pm, there are 6 tables only. We arrived at 715 and got the last one fortunately, we saw lots of people come in and leave however. If you wait on the sidewalk15-20 min you should get a table if patient. The Pizza oven is blazing hot as is the whole place, the pizzas are excellent,... More

Came in and ordered a "familiar" sized pizza to-go for 28 soles. They gave me a medium size instead (15 soles). Complete rip-off.

there's not a very nice service to the client and pizza wasn't correctly cooked and it wasn't very clean.

This is a tiny pizza restaurant a block from the charming main square in Cajamarca. My fiancée lived here for many years and took me here on our first night in town. For those with a US or European reference, think ciabatta bread with toppings (not a ton of cheese or sauce) fired when you order. The ONLY thing on... More
