Went here after the Inca Trail. It was perfect!! The owner was really friendly, and the atmosphere was nice. The pizzas are baked in a real stone oven. The chef was really organized with everything and the pizzas tasted great! Would highly recommend if looking for a great pizza place! Ask for extra garlic ;)

We were craving pizza so thought we'd try LaPizza Carlo. It is a very small pizzeria making it a cozy experience. The food was prepared basically in front of us as there's no kitchen and the wood oven made for nice ambiance. The pizza was delicious and the salad was fresh, with lots of avocado and lots of flavor. Carlo... More

Wanted a change from Peruvian food for dinner during one of our five nights in Cusco. Came across this tiny Pizzeria and looked in and was warmly beckoned inside by the owner. There were probably only five small tables and we shared the small room with the chef and his wood oven as well as the owner and his bar... More

Lovely light, crisp pizzas in a cosy little nook of a place. It isn't as cheap as it could be and, apart from the oven, it doesn't have many facilities, i.e. a decent-sized fridge, but it was the place our two young sons brought us back to 3 times!

This was a welcome change from the other tourist restaurants in Cusco that sell low quality food for high prices. The pizza was fantastic! Even with my poor Spanish, we were able to order a pizza with custom toppings that came out perfectly. Quick, friendly service. The restaurant is small, making it warm and cozy on a chilly Cusco night.... More

This place is very small, but we went kind of early, and had the place to ourselves. The staff was great and accommodated our lack of Spanish. Both the pizza margarita and calzone (can't remember the name) were very good. We watched them both being made and put into wood burning oven. By the time we left the place was... More

La Pizza Carlo is a small pizzeria a couple of blocks southeast of La Plaza de Armas, on Calle Maruri and San Agustin. Open the sliding glass door you will find four or five tables with bench sitting and a wood fired,clay pizza oven in the far back corner. My friend and I came here while looking for a quick... More

The place is very small and it would fit a group of six at the very most. The service was OK but I felt like it took a good bit to get our food ready. Nonna Trattoria nearby is a much better value.

We stumbled into this little pizza place after a long day of traveling. We immediately felt welcome and were seated at a long table with some other friendly patrons. While we looked at the menu our kids were each given a small ball of dough to shape into a pizza that was later baked into a tiny pizza just for... More
