Visited Pio Pio for the the first time and the experience was delightful. I ordered the rotisserie with garlic cassava and Peruvian rice and for drink a sour sop smoothie. The chicken was superb. Haven't tasted a chicken this tender and moist that I can...remember. The garlic sauce condiment was the bonus. Just wonderful 👍More

If you like to add some spice to your food, try their Rotisserie Chicken and green chili sauce.Their Sangria by pitcher is really good(35bucks)feeds like 6 glasses. Their Whole rotisserie chicken is only like 13 bucks. Avocado salad is really tasty too. Their only desert...is Vanilla Flan and I wish they could make more tasty deserts as well.More

We had a planned a trip to Universal in Orlando and the first night we were looking for something that was appealing to everyone in my family. We selected Pio Pio and we were not disappointed. The parking lot was pretty full when we arrived,...but there was basically no wait when we made it inside. We ordered the Tostones with Guacamole and Calamari fried as an appetizer. Both were delicious and when mixed with their own house sauces, green (a little Spicy) and the white (garlic), they were even better! I ordered the classic Peruvian dish Lomo Saltado, which was really tasty. My son got the large platter of meats and it was enough food for 3 people and he only brought the stomach for two this evening. The dessert was expresso and a Tres Leite’s, which we were able to make space for, because it was exceptional. The entire experience was truly exceptional and it was a bit on the pricy side, but we felt that it was well worth the price of admission.More

Thank you Yelp for Helping us find this gem. This restaurant I was just perfect. Customer service was amazing. The food was delicious. My kids enjoyed their meals so much, do you want to drive back to Orlando just saw eat here again. My kids...both ordered the pork chops. They couldn’t be happier to have leftovers. I ordered, Bandeja Paisa! It was fantastic! The Sangria was also amazing. Oh the apple soda, apparently is the best drink ever, according to my son.More

Had frequented their old location on Kirkman numerous time when our son lived in Kissimmee and we loved the place. Were on a golf trip to Orlando this week and decided to dine at their new location and were so happy we did. The food...and service were just what we remembered---fast friendly service and outstanding Latin cuisine. We were a party of four and to a person everyone loved it. Simon our server was especially good as he made sure whatever we needed we had it quickly. Next time in Orlando, this will be the first place we visit!More

If you’re trying to find amazing Latin food, go here. I wish we had something similar in Jacksonville, FL.

The above says it all. I had the skirt steak with rice, beans and ripe plantains. It came with 3 sauces, a white garlic, a green habeñero and a chimichuri. It was all excellent, though I'm not a spicy eater. The beans were truly excellent,...the skirt steak was tender (but needed a bit of a sauce). I wish I had room for dessert, but I brought half the dinner back to the hotel. Pio Pio is right behind Universal Orlando's Endless Summer Dockside. Just walk out the back past the gate for Tower 2 parking. They have parking but it is easier to walk. It is right next to the Hampton Inn.More

We thought we were going to a Peruvian restaurant but many dishes that are typically from Peru, were not in the menu. So, we ended up ordering empanada, breaded steak (milanesa o carne apanada) and chaufa rice and lomo saltado. They were very good. The...service by Santiago was excellent.More
