Great service, friendly staff, and very tasty food. I have a dairy allergy but here at Pio Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken Restaurant they address my concerns about dairy and always give me a delicious meal with out any dairy. I can relax and enjoy my meal with no worries about my diary allergy. What freedom! Not all restaurants can serve me a dairy free meal. My friends and family enjoyed the food and had a great times.

This restaurant never fails to satisfy my craving for authentic Peruvian dishes. I am very picky about ceviche, so the fact I loved their ceviche says a lot. This place is great for families as there are dishes to satisfy the pickiest of appetites. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something surprisingly different and delicious.

We were looking for a new dining adventure and had heard great things about Pio.
The restaurant is bright, colourful, and cheerful in red and yellow decor. Our server was extremely helpful in explaining the various menu items. We all enjoyed the plantain appetizer, chicken, & cassava fries. The sauces are very flavourful and each dinner had a choice of two sauces. One diner had the curry and enjoyed it as well.
We are looking forward to a return visit to try more new items.

Very tasty Rotisserie Chicken, has a a choice of dipping sauce mild to spicy hot, Peruvian spices, great service, variety of meal choices and two sizes, nice lively back ground Spanish music, bright decor. I like that Pio Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken restaurant serves me non dairy choices. I have a dairy allegry ie sinusitis, searing pain down my throat and "lower regions". It is so nice that I can relax and enjoy the delicious food with out a worry. Pio Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken retaurant is my favorite place to eat.

Pio Peru serves, as the name suggests, Peruvian cuisine. The roasted chicken is nothing like the deep fried, or Bar-B-Que chicken seen in most restaurants. Well cooked (as chicken should be) but retaining moisture and flavour. The chicken is simply the best I have ever had. The available dipping sauces are unique, and taste great.

The Peruvian stir fry (Lomo Saltado) is a great dish as well, a beef stir fry with spices that are probably unique to Peru.

We had both dishes with the regular fries. It is obvious that these are hand cut, fresh cut fries, both from the appearance, and the delicious taste.

I've been to Pio several times for dinner, but this was the first time there for lunch and it was just as great for lunch as it is for dinner! My wife and I were on our way to a matinee movie and they got our food for us quickly, leaving plenty of time for us to make it to the movie. Pio is a nice little gem of a restaurant with delicious food and very friendly service!

I have a dairy allergy and I called Pio Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken restaurant to see if they could accommodate my dairy allergy. Yes, all I had to do was to inform the waiter of my dairy allergy. I was able to relax and enjoy my yummy dinner. I will be coming back as this was wonderful, a relief and asurance that my meal would NOT have any dairy and the food was delicious.

Took my mum for her b-day. We had a fabulous meal (she chewed the chicken clean) and the service was wonderful. She had a side of linguine with pesto; I would never dream Peruvians would make such an amazing pesto! I'll be going back for my own order of it very soon. :)

We found the chicken slightly overdone and the curry not as spicy as advertised. Otherwise very good and excellent service. Acoustics are not great, thus was noisy when the restaurant was full. Very good prices; overall a good experience.

You would drive by this restaurant and think it was another fast casual concept popping up in strip malls. BUT looks are deceiving....Pio is a wonderful family owned and operated concept. The food is really good. I've never been to Peru, but it feels authentic. The service is wonderful and it's obvious that whoever is in the kitchen knows a thing or two about cooking.
