We went to the indoor market looking for it everywhere, and after asking several people, we found out it no longer exists! They closed down. So don't go there for nothing! According to some locals, the cook is now working at the Cartagena restaurant... So if you want the Luca touch, maybe you'll find it there!

Amazing place located in the indoor market. Authentic owner, the real italian deal ! For sure the best coffee and pizza in town. They also do breakfast with some pastries, yoghourt... The perfect place to go anytime.

Not a restaurant, more a stall in the market but that takes nothing away from the fantastic tasting pizza and friendly service of Luca. He will tell you his story of how he came from italy to own a stall in Huanchaco market selling pizza. Very cheap and very good. Also does cheap breakfasts

I really appreciate Luca's pizza. The taste is quite nice and prices are fair. After reading the reviews, I thought the place was overrated but it is an amazing place. Love his pizza!

OK its certainly not fancy and you had better not be in a rush but Luca's is a total gem of a spot. The food is fantastic and the company is even better. Luca will rustle up some great tasting Italian pizza or pasta from some basic ingredients while chatting away to you. He makes a really great Italian base.... More

Luca has his own little shop in Huanchaco's market where he makes unbelievable italian pizza's and pasta's (and the best coffee in town). You can just sit down, enjoy Luca's company - for he is a super funny and friendly dude -, and for not a third of the price the boulevard restaurants ask you can eat great food. We... More

This place is the real deal. You can come here for great Italian pizza at South American prices. The dough is delicious and the toppings are as fresh as they get. If Luca needs something he walks to the fresh veggie stands and gets what he needs or what you may want on a pizza. Luca is great to talk... More

Great Italian Pizza and Pasta in Peru also serving breakfast and Italian style coffee. I moved here from Italy two years ago and have brought the traditional Italian style pizzas and pasta to Huanchaco. Eat in a local relaxed environment. Go to the main mercado in Huanchaco and ask for Luca's pizza place. You will not be disappointed.
