I went with my wife to this pizeria as it has a great reputation here in Lima. We went early as we did not book, and there was just one table occupied. Within 20 minutes the restaurant was buzzing. I had a pizza with anchovies which was sublime. My wife had choritzo and ham pizza. My wife then had a... More

This place offers nice thin-crust and tasty pizzas in a quite a cozy atmosphere. I definitely recommend the Capricciosa one (nice proscuitto, parmesian, basil). My GF loved the carbonara (old-fashioned - no cream)!

My spouse and I visited on Christmas Day and enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and attentive service. The veggies on the pizza could have been cooked longer, IMO, but the taste was the best I've found in Lima so far. We also had an excellent vegetarian lasagna.

My family loves this this place! The pizza is thin crust and tasty. My daughter and wife love the penne with vodka sauce. Numerous trips over the years and we have not been disappointed. It is great place for pizza and some casual Italian in Peru. This is not New York or Chicago, but for pizza in Peru, this is... More

We ordered a takeout pizza from La Linterna and loved it. We were staying close by and needed a quick bite for dinner to take back to our room. Delicious, thin crust with fresh ingredients!

I was disappointed with my visit to La Linterna, I heard really good reviews from my friends, but I will not return. The crust was ok, pretty thin and crunchy, but the toppings were definitely not ok. For the price I paid, I hoped for a way more toppings. It just looked so sad, a "great" pizza with just a... More

I live in lima and I know this place for a long time and I've tried lots of pizzas in Lima and I've never have doubts about the quality of this restaurant. You will not find a better pizza in Lima. The service is good, the food is outstanding, not just the pizzas but the pastas and appetizers. The pizzas... More

We had pizza and pasta at La Linterna. The pizza I found good, nice thin crust, however, for my taste too greasy and they could have put more topping. The pasta, on the other hand, was one of the best I have had in Lima. Al dente at its best, tasty sauce, very good overall. The service was friendly and... More
