This restaurant is right off Pico Blvd. The food was delicious! Although, I am biased because I LOVE Peruvian cuisine. We were a large group and ordered a bit of everything and everything was delicious. My only recommendation is to order a side of white rice with the lomo saltado or any other hot meat based dish. I highly recommend... More

This is a very high energy establishment with good service and exciting ambiance. All good and entertaining and fun. My only reservation has to do witth my expectations-- a lot of the food was more Hollywood than Peruvian. Having travelled and eaten throughout Peru, I missed the great but simple fresh seafood, the corn based dishes and the meats. The... More

Were lucky to get into this place. The food was divine. The service impeckable. Us four girls had a great time. Pricey but what the hell on your second night in LA. Was worth the money.

Food here was phenomenal. Drinks were unique and very tasty. (I think we tried 5 different drinks at our table, with no complaints at all) Service seemed to be a bit slow, which was fine for us, but I wouldn't go here if I was in a hurry to get out in a finite amount of time. The menu is... More

Third time I've been here. Was celebrating my birthday with my hubby and kids. Picca is a Peruvian tapas bar with a great variety of menu items. Our server, Stephanie, was flawless. My fave dishes were and are the beef heart and the ox tongue. Sounds gross, but they season and cook them so well, you think you're eating filet... More

Dined here on business in January. Service was good and atmosphere was really nice, though a bit loud. I ordered the pollo Saltado and it was pretty good. I was far more interested in the desserts! I ordered the tres leches cake and wasn't too crazy about it. The churros, however, were incredible. And whatever they do to the chocolate... More

An awesome atmosphere, but make sure to get a reservation! We sat upstairs in the loft area, very secluded and romantic. We had drinks and small plates. I would definitely recommend the Chicharron de pollo and Anticucho pulpo. The drinks were amazing as well (I had some sort of fancy margarita, can't remember the name but it was delicious!). Our...

Picca means to nibble, and boy did we nibble our way through a fantastic meal!!! We ordered the recommended six dishes for two people. However, before dinner we started off with the ubiquitous pisco sour, and I had the anejo honey sour (both $11 - pls look at pics for whimsical recipes). Both drinks were slightly sweet, which was perfect... More
