Coming from Perú, our family wanted a way to share our cuisine with our Arizona neighbors. This dream led us to open our restaurant, Villa Perú. Every meal here is a way for us to share Peruvian culture with you, and our dishes, design, and architecture were all chosen to capture the authentic experience of our first home. Allow our selection of sophisticated Peruvian dishes and traditionally made Pisco-themed cocktails to take you on a vicarious adventure you won't soon forget.

I’ve never had Peruvian food before but this has to be well above average. The wine selection is great. The plantains were perfect. The beef I had was tender, flavorful and perfectly seasoned. Even the kids menu isn’t boring.

This restaurant is located on River Road Jossler Center. The sign is very small. It is where Contigo used to be. near Sullivans so look carefully. They should put a sign that is lit up and not just a small sign because you really cannot read from street.
Saying this, the food was fantastic. It really was Peruvian food and fresh. Mom and Dad in open kitchen cooking and family owned. I had a Pisco Sour which is the authentic drink of Peru & Very good. We started with sharing the Ceviche Mixto Afrodiciaco. The fish was fresh, taste delicious and we devoured it. Full of fish, octopus, shrimp, calamari, mussels, clams Peruvian corn and Unique flavors that we both couldn't stop eating it. I would have dipped bread in the juices if it was served. Then we each had another seafood dish. I had Arroz con Mariscos which is a Peruvian style Paella. Rice was outstanding and full of fish. My husband had the Arroz marino and that was great. The only suggestion I would have is rice should be hotter. It was very warm but not very hot. Also they REALLY need to have better signage & do more advertising. Place was empty due to a hidden location. The 2 restaurants by them were so busy because no one knows about this place. We will be back

Family owned. They ran a restaurant Lima, Peru, so the food is authentic. We really enjoy it and have made it one of our short list of favorites.

The restaurant was completely empty at 5:30 on a Saturday. The next guests didn’t come in until we were leaving at 6:30. There was no live music as there was the past two times we had been. The food was good, as usual. The beans were a little less appealing than I remember them. The Pisco Sours were very delicious. Overall, Villa Peru is one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson though it can be a little pricey.

Villa Peru never disappoints! The delicious food is matched by the warm atmosphere—atmosphere that comes as much from the terrific staff as from the nice decor. And they have a new menu now—amped-up the sophistication level.

I had trouble deciding what to order and asked the Waiter’s advice. I thanked him later for the excellent suggestion of the Peruvian paella. Totally delicious—for dinner, and as leftovers for lunch the next day. I highly recommend it!

The service was excellent. Very friendly and personal touch to our ordering process.
Live violin music playing that night was a great addition.

Food quality was top notch. Have eaten at many Peruvian restaurants (in Peru) and this one stays true to the quality and flavor.

Pisco Sours were delicious.

Really great pisco margaritas. The mules were also tasty. Went in for the Ceviche and was not disappointed. Nice atmosphere with a violinist playing that night. Great place for date night. It’s a bit on the expensive side but the experience is fantastic. Highly recommended if you are in the mood for ceviche.

Service was a bit slow, but they also had just released a new menu, so the staff was probably getting used to it. The live music was lovely and the food is fantastic. It's a little pricey for Tucson, but delicious.

This was our first visit to Villa Peru. The menu was very diverse with seafood and a variety of other meat and vegetarian dishes. The salads, cerviche, and other appetizer were excellent. The rib eye steak was very tasty although about as thin as you could get. The 1/2 chicken was a bit dry but acceptable. The rice/bean combo was quite nice as was the presentation of colored rice dishes. All said, we will go back. Value is quite high. Service was excellent but the restaurant was not very busy.

Our first visit to Villa Peru was on Valentine's Day. Unfortunately we didn't realize there would be a limited prix fixe menu offered. We were looking forward to other dishes on the regular menu. Regardless we did enjoy the meals we ordered. Service was very good. Ambiance was nice...would bring others here for an evening.
We will return at some point to try the dishes on the regular menu and upgrade our rating if deserved.

I will give this place another try, but our experience wasn't what I'd expect. We went on a Monday night (during the Gem show - so am cutting them a little slack), and they were out of far too many items. As soon we were seated, the waiter was taking our drink order - I asked what kind of tonic water they had, he said that they were completely out - they had run out the day before (don't think it would have been hard to pick up some more.) When we were ordering dinner, we found out that they were also out of 2 kinds of fish that made a couple of dishes unavailable (the waiter failed to mention any of this before we'd made our selections). My husband then asked for the roast chicken and they had run out of that the day before too. I had the ceviche which was good, as was my husband's veal hearts. Either they need to develop a better relationship with their suppliers or close on Mondays.

The ceviche is amazing. The fish is marinated just before serving, so it's tender and flavorful.

Food was authentic and service was excellent. Only shortcoming was their pisco sours were not quite up to Peruvian standards and left a little something to be desired. I think they neglected one ingredient, but I couldn't quite place which one it was. Will definitely return again, but I'll probably skip the pisco sour and stick to Inca Cola.
