Coming from Perú, our family wanted a way to share our cuisine with our Arizona neighbors. This dream led us to open our restaurant, Villa Perú. Every meal here is a way for us to share Peruvian culture with you, and our dishes, design, and architecture were all chosen to capture the authentic experience of our first home. Allow our selection of sophisticated Peruvian dishes and traditionally made Pisco-themed cocktails to take you on a vicarious adventure you wont soon forget.

Villa Peru is the real deal and so much more! The ambience, service and most importantly the food was truly authentically Peruvian! The quality and flavors took my wife and I back to Lima and our favorite tastes.

We highly recommend Villa Peru!

Seven of us dined outside. From the get go, service was outstanding - friendly, helpful and informative. Cocktails, some customized by request, were delicious. All dishes were enjoyed. A great all around experience.

Restaurant is operated by a family from Lima, Peru. Mon and dad do the cooking and the kids look after the guests.

Peruvian cuisine is one of the best on the globe, and one of the least known. it is a wonderful combination of local and Japanese flavors.

This restaurant does Peruvian cooking justice. The menu is authentic. The dishes are prepared to perfection. The service is impeccable.

Highly recommended. I have put it on my "regular" list for Tucson.

We were in Tucson and had limited choices due to Covid restrictions. This turned out to be a small family owned restaurant with really nice food (we had the lamb shanks) and great service. If we lived in Tucson we would be regulars.

Excellent quality calamari (app) --- there is a LOT of bad fried calamari out there. So theirs is a treat. Seafood side of the menu somewhat superior to the 'meaty' side.

The food was truly excellent. A great sauce on the chicken dish with great texture. The beefsteak was so tender and flavorful. The fried plantains were incredible! Service was really pleasant and efficient. We sat outside for COVID distancing and felt very comfortable. The cocktails were unique and well prepared. The wine list was very interesting, with some AZ wines. We had an AZ Petit Verdot that was listed as a dessert wine. It wasn't really a dessert wine but was excellent.

This is our 2nd visit to the Villa and will make this a definite go-to when in the area. It’s a family run eatery with traditional flavors in all of their foods. We always try a new ceviche as they have a dozen to choose from. It’s a great experience and this week I’m bringing 10 of my friends who have not dined there in for the experience. When you go, say hi to Frieda.....

My wife and I LOVE this restaurant! We live in Phoenix and we used to eat at the restaurant when it was in Phoenix. Sometimes we travel down to Tucson to hike and we always stop and eat at Villa Perú. The food is delicious. We’ve traveled to Peru several times and the ceviches from Villa Peru are some of the best we’ve ever had. My only concern is that a 5 Star review will make the place too popular and we won’t be able to get in.

They even have a young man who plays Bruno Mars hits on the violin. It sounds odd but it actually makes for a lovely dining experience.

Great place!

Villa Peru is a must dine in experience. We love everything about this place. It is small and quaint. Great bar. The food is out of this world, presented beautifully and prepared to perfection. Service is impeccable. Servers are friendly and engaging and will educate you to the menu options. Live violinist on weekends who plays beautifully and is a plus! I insist on taking all my friends and family who haven't been. And they all concur...Villa Peru is amazing!!

We sat outside and were the only ones out there (it was over 90 so other people opted to be inside so I can’t say what the noise level would be if there were others outside. It was excellent. I had ceviche and seafood soup, my husband had a beef dish with beans. All really good. We will definitely be back.

We arrived 15 minutes after the reservation time and were told that the kitchen had already been closed. The owner asked us to order quickly if we want to eat, I told her we would come back at a time that works better for them and she said that’s fine. We went to dine elsewhere.

Villa Peru is simply excellent: great food, great service, great ambiance. This was our first venture out to a restaurant since restrictions lightened (though we got takeout from here a couple of times during shelter-in-place in hopes that we could help ensure they would weather the restrictions on dining-in). We will continue to be loyal patrons of this great locally-owned restaurant. We are seafood fans, so enjoy their seafood dishes and excellent appetizers. Nice cocktail and wine lists, too.

Wow! What a fantastic experience tasting new and unique Peruvian cuisine. We enjoyed the sampler platter and ceviche. Good wine selection and pairs well with the menu, maybe a little over priced (approx 3 Xs retail).
