Hands down the best pasta in Lima! This elegant Italian restaurant in San Isidro, Lima features a wonderful selection of pastas and risottos that are sure to blow you away. The squash pasta, rabbit filled ravioli and porcini mushroom and white truffle risotto are a few of my personal favorites. Cap off your night with a burst of Limoncello. The Italian-born owner is a delightful host and the warm environment makes this a great spot for a lunch with colleagues or a special night out.

I have a T'anta addiction. The New York Times compared this eclectic spot to Dean & Deluca's. I head straight to the small market section up front as soon as I hit town to stock up on dried apples with a cinnamon dusting, crunchy cookies and chocolates. From there, I hit the bakery for carrot cake bread and macaroons, before sitting down to a filling lunch of raviolis or quinoa. There's truly something for everyone at this delightful restaurant in Lima!
