    Great place!

    This is a great restaurant to get together with friends and relax. The food is very consistently good- not gourmet- but really good. We like everything we've had there including even a very simple avocado salad they do. The drinks are also done well, especially the sangria. It's a small space that's usually busy but the service is still always good. The classy and fun atmosphere only adds to a nice experience.

    A Favorite!

    The UES location is ALWAYS packed. The food is suberb, the staff remembers customers, and the sangria is so easy to drink to much of. I always leave full and fully satisfied. Their staple the chicken pio is amazing, the sides perfect and the seafood platter is great too! I've taken several people here, and everyone loves it!

    The Jalea is what saves it

    Where are the rotisseries in this restaurant? Their chicken is oven roasted. It's still ok, but it's not true peruvian rotisserie. The jalea is great, really the best in Manhattan. If this place only served seafood I would give it higher ratings, but then again the name would have to change wouldn't it :)

    I've been eating at Pio Pio since they first opened up in Queens about 5 years ago. The food is simply amazing. The chicken, jalea, sangria and green aji are too die for. I eat there at least once a week. The service and ambiance are excellent too. Love it, love it, love it!

    Not true Peruvian food

    Most of the food is deep fried and greasy. Peruvian food is not supposed to be like this. This is fast food-style food. If you like that, enjoy. But it's not where you should go for Peruvian food. Also the service is subpar.

    Unbeatable Peruvian Chicken

    Their Peruvian Rostisserie chicken can't be beat. The green sauce they serve with it only enhances the taste even more although it doesn't really need it. The last place I ate at which came close but can't beat this place is Flor de Mayo on the West Side. But their chicken is only a pale imitation of Pio Pio's. I live in the area and make delivery orders to escape the crush that sometimes ensues in their dining room. Besides, I just want to retreat to my cave and devour the chicken with my bare hands in the messiest manner possible, which could frighten nearby women, children and carriage horses...

    Greatest Chicken Ever!

    First of all, the chicken is GREAT! The peruvian sauce is to die for! I think that is what really makes the chicken a great chicken. The sauce is the secret. Simply LOVE it! I just wish that they would have a Pio Pio Chicken midtown... They should think about having another restaurant near Grand Central.
