This location ruined the all the amazing experiences I've had prior at Pio Pio. I went on a early Saturday afternoon with my boyfriend, whom was very excited to try peruvian food. I ordered the Arroz chaufa which "WAS" my favorite meal there and he ordered the Lomo. My rice was disgusting, it had this nasty rice pudding texture (not... More

The place is small, crowded and noisy but somehow it makes the perfect ambience for the outstanding food they deliver. This is a restaurant that is away from the tourist areas of NYC wich adds charm to the place. We tried the Roast Chicken, the seafood rice and the Lomo Saltado and all of them were great. We also tried... More

I had heard great things about this restaurant and my father and cousin highly recommended it. My wife and I joined my family for dinner here. The food was absolutely delicious and served in HUGE portions. We were a party of 6 and shared the Matador Combo and a salmon dish.

Stopped in to anticipate an upcoming trip to Peru and were blown away. A bit crowded, but friend and efficient staff take care of you. We had the ceviche tasting and Juanita's chicken, along with the aforementioned yucca. Chicken and yucca liberally dunked in deliciously green sauce (we bought a countainer to go). Pisco sours of course fabulous. We will... More

I frequently eat at Hell's Kitchen pio pio restaurant as I love it. It was three years ago the last time I visited the upper west side one and I recalled it a little noise. This time, it was not too noisy. It was busy but not packed. Note, they only take reservations for parties of 6 people or more.... More

Dining room lovely, food great but a bit salty. Our waiter, Patrizio was attentive and knowledgeable. We had shrimp couzco and the chicken. Both were a bit too salty. Ask them to go easy on the salt. Avocado salad was wonderful and the dressing was sublime with just the right heat. The sangria was delicious.

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.

Neighbourhood 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 theatre 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.
