Review Summary
For very acceptable Italian pasta at a better than reasonable price, La Bodega de La Trattoria is hard to beat. Despite lackluster scores for food and service, it scored admirably on value, keeping it in the hunt for the top spot among Italian eateries in Lima.

The full review for La Bodega de La Trattoria

Review by: Ollie O Rating: 4.3 stars Review Date: 11/23/2018

La Bodega de La Trattoria is the less-expensive and more casual format for Lima’s most respected Italian restaurant, La Trattoria di Mambrino. With more than half a dozen restaurants scattered throughout Lima, there’s likely one close to wherever you happen to be when you get that urge for pasta.

There are three main players in this Italian cuisine genre. At the high-end of the spectrum is La Trattoria di Mambrino, that skirts the boundary between casual and upscale dining. Your typical pasta dish at La Trattoria costs about US$13 (40 soles) on average.

At the low-end of the spectrum is La Bodega de La Trattoria with an average price closer to $9.50 (32 soles). Gastón Acurio’s attempt at Italian cuisine, Los Bachiche, lies squarely in between those two with an average pasta main course costing you about US$11.50 (36 soles).

But as the old adage goes, you get what you paid for. The decor at La Bodega is nothing close to the sexy, sophisticated ambiance at La Trattoria. It’s clean. It’s pleasant. But nothing more.

The food falls a bit short on execution. And the menu at La Bodega is plain-Jane. It’s your typical pasta and pizza and not much more. And the plating, isn’t even close to what you’ll find at the more sophisticated sister restaurant.

The pasta at La Bodega is acceptable. The pizza’s just okay, not much more.

The desserts are very good. You’re basically getting the same high-quality pastries you’d get at the more expensive restaurant, with a tad less glitz and glamour on the plate.

The service has been very good on one or two occasions that I’ve been to La Bodega. It was a bit inattentive on a couple of other visits.

If a very acceptable Italian pasta dish at a better than reasonable price is what you’re looking for, La Bodega de La Trattoria is hard to beat. Despite lackluster scores for food and service, the value rating kept La Bodega in the hunt for the highest rated Italian restaurant in Lima.
