Went for dinner & enjoyed the excellent food & prompt service. The owner is so friendly & spent time explaining the décor & cultural influences of Filipino food. What a special & unique experience to our leaf peeping in VT.

We've been going to Pica-Pica off and on since they first opened. The owner has always been very friendly, and there hasn't been an appetizer, entree, or dessert that we have not thoroughly enjoyed. I encourage everyone to give it a try! :D

went out for a foliage sightseeing and ended up in St Johnsbury VT. my group had googled Filipino restaurants so we detoured here. The food was incredible. Loved the lechon kawali was some of the best I have tasted. I would put this food up...against any of the 4 Maxes I have eaten at. my whole group was very very satisfied. a wide range of dishes to select from. fish, steak(Filipino style) chicken, and pancit. we tried them and loved it. there were 6 in my group counting myself. wish the restaurant was closer to Boston because I would frequent more often. The halo halo for dessert was delicious. Loved the way it was made. was worth the 2 1/2 hour drive there. at the time because of covid lunch was only take out. dinner is seated at tablesMore

We went for lunch. Quick and pleasant service. All the food was fabulous, and very authentic. Plus it was prepared and plated with style. The veg rolls were sublime, as was the adobo. Big portions. And the right mix of savory and sweet. The toilets...are immaculate and very fresh. They even have cloth hand towels. In sum, this is the place to go.More

It was my first time trying Filipino food and it was great. Everything from the appetizers to desserts were delicious. The service was warm and friendly. The owner came out to speak with us and he is very personable and friendly. He ensured our experience...was great. We will definitely be going back whenever we are in St. Johnsbury. Thanks Pica Pica!More

We went here for dinner but decided to just get appetizers. We got the fried egg rolls which tasted just like the ones we have had in the Philippines. We also ordered the chicken satay which was delicious too. I wish they had outdoor seating....In this COVID times, I was a little nervous sitting inside and they seemed to have more than enough room on the sidewalk.More

This was a great place to try Filipino food for the first time. From the Chicken BBQ scewers to the halo halo (sweet ice cream & bean dessert) every dish had something I loved and had never tasted before. There are definitely options for peole...who are looking for sweet and savory dishes. The staff was very welcoming and the atmosphere was great! I would highly recommend this place to anyone in the VT or NH area looking for an authentic Filipino meal.More

At long last... authentic filipino restaurant in Vermont! my husband drove 2 hours from Colchester together with our family from Burlington to give it a try... and it’s all worth it! we’ll definitely come back. Ambiance is warmth and classy, gives us filipino feels when...we saw sone portraits and antiques, very clean place too... of course seeing san miguel light there, we will definitely go back! Food was very good and you can really taste true homecook filipino dish. ⭐️♥️😋More

Drove an hour just to try Pica Pica for our 23rd anniversary and I have to say it was SO WORTH the trip! James our waiter was friendly with just the right amount of attentiveness! George, the owner/chef was generous and came out to serve...our wine! The appetizers and dinner was amazing, just the right size and spice. We look forward to going back very soon!More
