Most first-time visitors are shocked to learn that Cusco is a pizza town. The prevalence of wood-burning ovens made the transition to pies easy when foreign tourists began to arrive in town decades ago. Today it is hard to find a really bad pizza in Cusco, though finding a great one is difficult. Some of the best can be found at La Bodega, in part because the restaurant uses higher-quality ingredients than most of the places near the plaza. Aside from typical pizzas, there are interesting combinations like bacon and sauco (elderberry), which you definitely won't find anywhere else. The pastas can be hit or miss. The kicker here is the well-chosen wine list and a few hard-to-find Peruvian craft beers.
