This Italian-style eatery is the place to head on a cool night, since it offers a cozy ambience and good food. Rough-hewn tables are surrounded by old pots and pans hanging from the walls; the rafters hold wooden barrels. The extensive menu includes a wide array of salads, fresh pasta served with your choice of a dozen sauces, and Lima's best pizza: more than 50 different kinds baked in a wood-fired oven. You also can't go wrong with dishes like langostino (shrimp) risotto
or ravioli stuffed with granchio (crab). The adjacent theater features concerts, usually rock, on weekend nights. A second location in San Isidro, at Av. Dos de Mayo 732, is one of that neighborhood's dining bargains.
