    The traditional Peruvian dishes are all very well done. Try the ceviche, anticuchos, Peruvian chicken, and/or the arroz con mariscos

    Cheap prices for some great food! You can easily share the $38 meal between 2 people! Very cozy & romantic, nice for dates. The design is beautiful.

    Their rotisserie chicken is the best!! One entree and a couple of sides can feed 3-4 for about $10 each.

    If Peruvian decor traditionally makes you feel as though you're in a tinder box then Pio Pio NAILED it.

    Good: you should definitely try the mero norteno, lomo saltado, arroz con mariscos & lucuma ice cream! Not so good: the sangria was way too sweet.

    Lin Trifon · December 2, 2015
  • Honghui Y.

    Everything on the menu is good but when in doubt, go for the rotisserie chicken - it's the highlight.

    Honghui Yu · December 2, 2015

    Delicious food. I've had a bunch of Peruvian food and this is among the best. The appetizer sampler is a good selection to try as much as possible, if it's your first time.

    Check out their lunch special! $9.50 for a quarter chicken (you choose light or dark meat), a salad, your choice of a side and a soda.

    Madoto combo is good but in the meantime too much for 3...

    Juiciest $9.50 lunch (M-F 11-4pm) & best rotisserie chicken in NYC: 1/4 (white or dark meat) chicken w/ avocado tomato salad, a soda, & side (rice & beans, tostones, or fries). Ask 4 green sauce!

    Horrible experience! Waited more than and hour and a half to be told that they ran out of chicken since we wanted to try out el matador combo.. Who runs out of chicken if your logo is PIO PIO!

  • Booie

    The chicken is very good and the interiors are impressive! It may appear to be expensive but its very reasonable. The calamares are also very good. Red wine sangria is also great!

    Pimiento relleno! We loved everything... Don't forget to order tres leches for dessert

    This small restaurant is a popular lunch spot for groups. Come here before noon or you'll have a wait for a table.

    One of my favorite places for large groups. The chicken is amazing and you can take bets on how many times you'll hear the birthday song in a given evening.

    Big portions, good for groups. But the service was too chaotic and took forever to do anything. Love their chicken though.

    Alice Nam · March 21, 2015
  • Amy T.

    Food and decor are great but the service was HORRIBLE. Enough to turn us off from this potential hidden gem.

  • Robert A.

    Food is good and it's affordable when you realize the portion size. It's served family style so prepare to fill your plate with lots of food.

    Definitely reserve before arriving. Food is plentiful, so you may want to forgo lunch or an appetizer when eating here. Great sangria.
