West side location is the best. This room is a good size so you are not on top of each other as you are in the east side location. The menu on the wayside offers more choices. Love their chicken and avocado salad plus the fabulous green sauce adds that touch of spice that makes everything taste better.

Split one chicken dish with sides, and it was perfect for two people. Fall-off-the-bone roasted chicken, cold Peruvian beer and a friendly environment.

We both had a fish dish and it was excellent. Great table, not too crowded. And a good bottle of Red for 26.00. Interesting menu, Peruvian flair. Great experience!

We were a group of 4+baby and we were quickly seated. We ordered a variety of different dishes. The restaurant is known for their rotisserie chicken which was so crispy and juicy. The other dish I highly recommend is lomo saltado. I have eaten this one myself in Peru and the one at Pio Pio is at least as good.... More

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.

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.
