I always pass by La Romana located at the corner of Prescott and Vallejo but I'd never been inside so I thought I'd try it for a quick lunch yesterday. I knew it was a pizza place but that shouldn't be an excuse for quality of the rest of dishes they offer. I decided for the Spaghetti al Pesto (my... More

Peruvian pizza is different than the pizza that you get in the States, and the biggest difference is that it doesn't have any sauce. Because I am a NorthAmerican pizza lover, it took a little bit of getting used to. The pizza at La Romana has taught me that pizza can be really good without sauce when you have a... More

For some time we had been recommended to visit this restaurant and finally decided to give it a try. I was immediately impressed by the atmosphere and the familiar smell brought back memories of a pizza parlor back home in New... More

The sign outside advertised Pizza. Inside was as upscale Italian restaurant that also served pizza. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. Prices were moderate and portions generous.

La Roma has outlets (four or five) around the city. The restaurant is a classic pasta and pizza stop for many of Lima's middle class. They serve a wide array of Italian food, but are best known for their pizza. The food is good, inexpensive and predictable. A great place to take the kids for a bowl of pasta and... More
