There are many pizza restaurants in Cusco and only very few are actually any good. Justina Pizza Restaurant is simply one of the best in town, and is a must visit for anyone looking for great pizza. The restaurant is tiny but the atmosphere is super cool, intimate and relaxing. Set away from the hustle and bustle of Cusco, Justina is the perfect place to head after a day of touring. Pricewise this is not the cheapest pizza place in town, but it is cheaper than most pizza restaurants around the plaza, and it is also by far one of the very best.
