El Horno was our last stop before leaving Huaraz by night. Their menu has a lot of different meals to offer: pasta, pizzas, BBQ, burgers and huge salads. I couldn't choose!!! Too indecisive... I didn't get to try the pizza but apparently a friend said theyre really tasty and cheap. So I had the pasta Forestal, which I was afraid... More

I had dinner here recently, just before heading out on a trek of the Cordillera Huayhuash. The place was packed by the time I left and people were turning away at the door. They put out a great pizza. It is located near Huaraz's main plaza, easy to find.

We had pizza and/or pasta + salad + lemonade for less than 12 soles! Great location, good food and nice staff... Service was ok.

I liked the atmosphere and friendly service here but was disappointed by the pizza which was quite bland and lacking in flavor.

We ate here two nights in a row, the pizza was that good! The salads a bit less so. If you fancy a change from typical peruvian cuisine in huaraz this is the place to go!

We ate here for dinner and shared a pasta and salad. The food was really great. But there service was really really slow. We had to ask for menus after being seated for 15 minutes. We had to wave someone down to take our order. Then when we asked for the bill it took a good ten minutes. The only... More

Can't go wrong with El Horno! We visited 3 times - each time actually during siesta time. Additional staff arrived to assist and service was attentive and efficient. Pizza comes really quick while steaks take longer meaning if you don't plan for this everyone could eat at a different time at the table. But once we figured the nuances out... More

So far we've been twice to El Horno, it's truly great Italian food in Huaraz! The craft beer is really good as well
