This place made me fall in love with Peruvian food! I love how friendly and welcoming the staff is. I like the different atmosphere they have. As a Venezuelan woman I can say this is the best Latin American restaurant around the area. I recommend this place 100%

As a Peruvian I recommend going to Cora Cora for the best taste of Peruvian cuisine. I’ve been to many Peruvian restaurants around the Hartford area and nothing compares to the excellent service, quality and great food. They do delivery as well as take out and from my experience it’s been fantastic costumer service wise. RT

I had lunch with family and friends today. The ceviche mixto was mouthwatering and tasty. My friend and I enjoyed the chicken brasa salad, a delicious quinoa dish. We love the purple corn drink, Chicha morada. Franz, our server, was knowledgeable and very attentive with my kids. ¡De categoría!

Cora Cora's interior is modern, clean and neat with scenes of Peru's many tourist destinations showing quietly on TV monitors around the dining area. The food and service is very good and includes Peruvian specialties that are not otherwise locally available. Go. You'll enjoy it.

We finally tried this highly praised Peruvian restaurant and were very pleased. The seafood was very fresh and was prepared perfectly. Lots of rice and noodle dishes. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable. The staff were very attentive and professional. Looking forward to going back. The only negative is the location.

Six of us ate at this Peruvian restaurant for the first time and all would return. The ambience was pleasant, the service was fine and our server ably described everything we needed to know about the offerings. The menu was extensive, offering a variety of fish, shellfish, chicken and beef dishes. This food is authentic Peruvian prepared from drinks to... More

You can ask that the hear level be mild, medium or hot. My wife had a dinner salad with grilled chicken and enjoyed it very much. The... More
