Food: great. Service: great. Space: small but cute. I really love this place. My only observation regards the menu, which I think could have more options.

The best pasta I’ve ever had. Freshly rolled out in front of you. Good range and customisablity. Excellent value 25 soles for a large (very generous!) serving and a drink. Quite small but very cute place, ate there twice in 2 days. Would definitely recommend

The shop is a small hole in a historical row of shops by the corner of two streets on the far northern end of the historical centre. You probably don’t need to call ahead, but beware that it really won’t have a table for any...More

My boyfriend and I went to eat at Pasta Canteen last night, after reading the great reviews on here. Sadly we found it a bit overrated. The pasta wasn't really enough for a main dish and didn't have much taste to it. I ordered pasta...More

Hi Belinda! We are not able to serve gluten free pasta, unfortunately. Our kitchen is very small and we do get quite busy. Have a lovely stay in Arequipa :)

Hi Belinda, We were already very happy with the excellent quality of the pasta, everything is made in house and you even see them making the pasta whilst you are there. However, Peruvian hospitality known, I would give them... More
