I absolutely recommend this to those who already enjoy Peruvian food as well as first-timers. The service and atmosphere was friendly and comfortable and the food was authentic and delicious. The ceviche was delicious as was the Peruvian chicken. I highly recommend the Lomo Saltado. My sister has visited Peru and was married to a Bolivian and confirms this is... More

Fun atmosphere and wonderful food. We ordered the Most Popular Rotisserie Chicken Dish and shared between the two of us. Included rice, beans, avocado salad, sausage with fries. Chicken was tender and very moist with plenty of Peruvian flavor. Pisco Sour and Sangrias were also very good. Nice authentic Peruvian restaurant in the Upper West Side.

The ceviche was bland. The rice dish was too greasy. The sangria was good. Tostones over-cooked. Corvina Inca chicken was very good (Pan fried Corvina in white wine, dijon mustard and Aji Amarillo sauce served with mashed yucca and steamed asparagus). We were a party of seven (mostly young people) and everyone enjoyed the dinner. The service was very good.

Visited Bronx Brewery and then hit Pio Pio for dinner. Everything was great. Service was attentive, friendly...all three of us shared the chicken special. Chicken was delicious and all of the side dishes were interesting and flavorful. Hard to find a great deal for a great meal but you will here! Don't miss this place.

My co-worker's flatmate is a chef who studied in Peru. He highly recommended this place to us, and he was absolutely right. This place is fantastic. One of my favorite Peruvian restourants in NYC.

The pisco sour was outstanding. We shared the Peruvian combo along with ceviche limeno and papa rellena. Way too much food but outstanding.Really enjoyed the atmosphere and got there just before line up started. Great spot for a relaxed dinner.

The food was amazing, atmosphere was great. You think by look at the place that it is small, but you go down stairs and they really can pack the house. Fun place. If you are looking for a quiet intimate dinner, this is not the place.

First time there, we went with friends who are regulars. They ordered and we enjoyed. The drinks were very good both the pisco sours and the sangria. I'm also a caviché fan and had a sampler plate that was very tasty. It was not as exotic as I had hoped. We had been to Peruvian eateries in other countries that... More

This was our first experience with Peruvian food and it did not disappoint!! We had the tamal for an appetizer, I had the sea bass for an entree, and my husband had the salmon with guajillo sauce. I can honestly say that this was the best fish dish I have ever had (and I eat a lot of fish). My... More

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
