Doesn't exist

Doesn't exist anymore. The pizzeria sign is still there, but the inside was turned into a giftshop.

Not good for vegans

I was very disappointed when we came to this restaurant and found that they didn’t understand what vegan food meant, and so after a lot of explanation I ended up having a pizza without cheese which was dry and bland. The only reason I’ve given this restaurant two stars is because they have a better than average vegetarian selection for Ollantaytambo.

Best place in Ollantaytambo for dinner and dessert

This restaurant is the perfect spot for a vegetarian person because of the quinoa burger, the calzones and all the pizzas made by an Italian expat "slow food" chef. We ordered a vegan pizza and he made us one at a reduced price because of no cheese after we asked.
However, we would like to highlight the vegan baked goods: the apple pie, the energy balls, they are beyond good! We stayed in Ollantaytambo for a month and we used to go everyday to get dessert.

Also, he can make the best vegan hot chocolate! Really, it is the best hot chocolate we ever tried, just ask for water instead of milk. He doesn't use refined sugar but chankaka and the chocolate is local. He sells homemade products like tomato sauce and olive oil.

Pros: Vegan baked goods!!! (ask), Hot chocolate! , Super friendly owner

Cons: Limited vegan options for meals

Good food here with veggie options

I went here twice during my stay in Ollantaytambo. Any pizza place can make a veggie pizza, but the ones here are very good, and they look good. The owner is from Rome, Italy.

Besides pizza, they have a quinoa burger (it comes with nothing extra, so the owner offered to make me a simple salad to go along with it for 5 soles more). They also have a salad that normally comes with chicken strips, but they can leave out the chicken and put in more veggies and nuts.

They have homemade ice cream. I tried the chocolate and it was chocolate overload. Very good, but it had a stimulant effect and I couldn't fall asleep that night!

This was my favorite restaurant in Ollantaytambo and I warmly recommend it.

Pros: Good food & flavors, Everything made on premises
