“Italy's corner in Peru”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013 via mobile

By far the best restaurant in Cusco. I stayed here for 5 days going through the "best" restaurants from the site but this is pure quality. The food and service is very good. The place is not fancy yet the quality of the service will make up for it. The ingredients used for the pizzas are imported from Italy and the tomato sauce is homemade.
Do not take into consideration the map since it points out that the restaurant is far from the center yet is half of block away from the cathedral.
Highly recommended!

“Best meal I've had during the past two months in Peru”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

After being disappointed by many "Italian" restaurants in Peru I decided to give in and look one up on tripadvisor, and it did not disappoint!

I was in the mood for a big lunch (dealing with a beast of a hangover) so I ordered the bruschetta (they have one with aubergine (or something similar) that is to die for!).

For a main course I ordered the spaghetti carbonara, which was just perfect! (all the previous carbonara I've had at other Peruvian restaurants has been a squishy goo of tasteless cheese smothered in fat)

The owners/employees (not sure which they were) were very friendly, and I will definitely come back here (and bring friends).

“Best Restaurant in Peru by Far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

This is my honest opinion - this is the best restaurant in Peru by far. Especially in Cusco! I've tried all the expensive fancy restaurants around Cusco and none of them come close to Roma Mia. The chef is Italian, and passionate about food and you can tell! This is real Italian food like in Italy, no question about it. He uses real imported ingredients including pecorino and parmesan cheese, olive oil, wines and of course pasta from Italy. I've been several times and it's always consistently excellent. Very friendly service, very clean (the kitchen is spotless!), very fresh, perfectly cooked, lovely atmosphere, and make sure you stop by after 6 for the pizza oven - the pizzas are superb. This is the real deal. if you want a break from Peruvian food this like a little slice of Italy seems literally teleported from Rome to the centre of Cusco. Very convenient location. Highly recommended. My favourite restaurant so far anywhere in the world. One tip is to ask for the chefs speciality it's his own creation and it's something to be experienced! Also has plenty of great vegetarian options, if you're vegan you just have to ask to hold the parmesan.

“Great giant pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

We decided to go crazy and have a family sized pizza each. Well, it was crazy as they were huge but we took our time and we managed to finish. They were both very tasty!

Though there were many on the list, they didn't have any Argentinian bottled wine but only Italian. We drink Italian wine quite often at home so we didn't want one. We then had the "house wine" which according to them was Argentinian. It was surprisingly good and went lovely with the pizza.
