    I ordered the chupe de camarones and it was outstanding. I am Peruvian so I was really pleased with the authenticity of the meal. My husband ordered the lomo saltado and the beef was tender and juicy.

    Great service & delicious, authentic food. App: Palta Rellena. Main: Arroz Chaufa, Camarones Cuzco or Lomo Saltado. Drink: Red Sangria, trust me! This location is a bit more laid back than downtown's.

    Portions are huge. If your party is 3 or more, get a number of entrees equal to about 2/3 of your party size and do family style, unless you want to carry doggie bags home.

    Order "El Matador" - incredible quantity of delicious Peruvian cuisine. My g/f is Peruvian so she knows what's up. Gotta do it. And slather your chicken in the tostones sauce. Vaya!

    When I am in New York, I visit this place multiple times - every time. The bartender made me an amazing Mango Margarita (and, of course, the Sangria is a must have!).

    Huge portions. Must order chicken & share. The plantains are a must too. Great for group parties & celebrations. Big space. Get the private area down at the very back.

    I had an awesome experience at Pio Pio. The green sauce is so addicting and definitely makes the chicken. The yuca fries and avocado salad is a must!

    Portions are amazing. But for this specific location, I would suggest coming with a group since there aren't that many corners for a dinner two privacy.

    Whole chicken is delicious. Bathe it in green sauce and order a pitcher of sangria, and you'll be happy.

    Worst experience at this place. Rice was over cooked. We were not asked if we needed more drinks. We order the chicken rotisserie which came with no fries or salad. Apparently they aren't included.
