The menu is limited but never disappointing. The chicken is exceptionally flavorful and the green sauce they serve with it is amazing. The Sangria is delicious (and must be laced with brandy because it is a little sweet and very potent). The have an ice cream made from a local Peruvian fruit .. I think called Lupa, that is great. When your evening of casual dining is finished (you will be full) you will be shocked by the price. This may be be the best value in NYC. There is another Pio Pio in Jackson Heights that s just as good but the parking is impossible.

Quaint little rest with attentive service. Best chicken with awesome spice to it! Pay 18 bucks for chicken for two, plantains and rice. Unreal!

The wait staff is by no means friendly, but the flavorful chicken pio pio will make up for it. Another great dish to try is the seafood platter.. great portion, fresh tasting fish, a bargain.

The food here is great. I ordered the Jalea and there was so much food for the price I paid. It was tasty and flavorful. It had a cobination of shrimps, fish, squid, calamari, scallops, red onion and fried yuca. The dish was unbelievable.

So so good, from the chicken, to the maduros its delicious! Delivery is a prompt as possible considering they can get super busy, but it always arrives hot and tasty.

It was just ok food in an ok place. I could not understand all the hype about it though. It was just average food in a average place. Pro's: 40-50 dollars for dinner for two. Cons: 45 min wait for average food. 15:1 waiter ratio. (Not kidding). I have to ask for water 5 times from the same waiter to get it. Plus only take American express and no other credit cards. No warning before hand either. Will I go there again: No. Will I recommend: Only if you want to wait 30-45 mins for an average food.
