Delicious and authentic Peruvian fair.

Dinner with friends on a weeknight. Service and food was excellent. We tried a variety of dishes and all were delicious and fresh. Big, tender shrimp, scrumptious cerveche, and delicious beef. Very reasonable priced. Take a picture with the life sized llama, or was it an alpaca?

Being Peruvian has always been an advantage when it comes to enjoying Peruvian Restaurant food because I know exactly what to order although it can sometimes become a boring experience. From the first time I had a meal at Cora Cora until now every experience is just like the first time, they have the most extensive menu catering to all... More

This place is authentic as you can be for a Peruvian restaurant in CT. They have a large menu, so there is something for just about everybody. They make many different Peruvian dishes. We had the ceviche, which was excellent. The other dishes are all good. I'd go back, its very clean too. Oh and they have a nice selection... More

We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and with only one very minor exception, the experience has always been wonderful. The food is excellent and the service is decent and nicely timed for a slow but steady meal. The menu is extensive and all of the dishes we have had, have been nothing short of very good or... More

I don't know what is authentic Peruvian food is but the food was amazing. Even my 5 year old was thrilled with his shrimp dish. I didn't know so many dishes existed on a menu with quinoa as main grain, perfect for a vegetarian like me. Typically I don't like having ice creams but we had cannoli filled ice cream... More

We very much enjoyed our lunch here introducing 2 newcomers to the virtues of Peruvian food. Food was well prepared and service was very good. Our friends have since been back for takeout since we left town so they must have loved it too. The decor and atmosphere are very nice as well and add to the experience.
