Trattoria di Mambrino Review

After a quarter century in business, this trattoria remains one of Lima's best Italian restaurants. You can watch cooks stuff the ravioli and drape the fettuccine on long wooden rods in the kitchen. But the proof is on the plate: delicious dishes like artichoke ravioli and fettuccine magnifico (with a prosciutto, Parmesan, and white truffle sauce) leave you satisfied but not stuffed. Be sure to leave room for dessert. Co-owner Sandra Plevisanni is one of the country's best pastry chefs, so it would be a crime to leave without trying one of her creations. The only caveat is the service, which can be slow.

    Trattoria di Mambrino Review

    Quite possibly the best Italian food outside of Rome. The menu, although in Spanish, is pure Italian trattoria. "La Fettucine Magnifico" does not exaggerate: achingly fresh fettucine is tossed tableside in a sauce of truffle oil, prosciutto de Parma, and parmaggiano. Every dish is authentic and done to perfection. Desserts are South American size--so plan to share.
