Cicciolina Review

Everyone seems to know everyone and greet each other with a peck on the cheek at this second-floor eatery, part lively tapas bar, part sit-down, candlelit restaurant. On the tapas side, the bar wraps around the kitchen area where a small army of cooks prepare your food. You'll strain to see as they set out each new tapas plate—perhaps some duck prosciutto or prawns and sweet potato in wasabi sauce—and be tempted to say, "I want one of those." The restaurant half of Cicciolina is much more subdued, with homemade pastas and delicious selections of fish, meat, and poultry dishes, not to mention a nice wine list. You can order off the restaurant menu in the tapas bar, but not the other way around. Note that, while not required, reservations are very strongly encouraged and available only through the website.

    High quality cooking in Cusco

    This restaurant is very good. The menu is innovative and the cooks don't disappoint you. It's just delicious. They have meat, fish, poultry and pasta dishes, all of them very tempting.

    MUST GO!

    Granted, this is an Italian restaurant in Cusco. But once you can't stomach anymore cuy (guinea pig) head to Cicciolina. I wish I could go here every night in the states! Great place to grab a delicious sandwich on freshly baked bread and watch them make fresh pasta for the night's dinners. For dinner, the french onion soup and filet mignon off the menu are to die for. The scallops and pasta dishes also received rave reviews from our party. This place is not to be missed!!

    Amazing Amazing Restaurant

    Words cannot describe how great this restaurant is. The service is wonderful and the food is outstanding. You can either sit at the restaurant or eat at the bar and order tapas. Either way, you will love it.
