The word Mistura brings together the essence of Peru, a vision of its people and cuisine, a wondrous blend of cultures of priceless heritage. Our Mistura is a modern Peruvian restaurant that is as lively as the country and biodiversity it celebrates. Mistura captures the multicultural spirit of Peru, combining its native Incan and Pre-Columbian culinary heritage with the Italian, Spanish, Japanese, and Chinese influences that embody the country’s flavorful cuisine. Mistura is an authentic tribute to the diversity of Peruvian food, proposing familiar yet unexpected and adventurous flavors.

Our chef tends to and harvests most of the organic produce used in our menu from our garden's rich soil. The idea of a garden in the city is fascinating and it allows us to keep in constant contact with nature while providing a genuine Farm-to-Table experience. Furthermore, we are committed to preserve the land and its resources by providing agricultural produce, fishery, and cattle livestock that adhere to strict sustainability practices. All poultry, fish, beef, and pork are sourced locally and must be free-range, organic, non-hormone-treated. Just as Chef Nicola wants to pay respect to the culinary history of Peru, he is solid in his commitment to respect our land and water, with conscious usage of the resources available.

Chef Nicola’s inspiration to open a Peruvian restaurant in the Central Coast came from his insatiable curiosity and interest in the fascinating essence, traditions and influences that had created the Peruvian Cuisine. Nicola has been always a passionate traveler, wanting to learn about other cultures and places that would enrich his knowledge as a reputable chef. Nicola wanted to explore ingredients that embrace new flavors, be challenged by new techniques that bring depth to his creations, and honor Peru’s history and diversity.
