I come here from time to time since it can get very busy at the original location. I ènjoy their staff, the food and also the 'mom n pop' feel of a diner/restaurant feel. I enjoy all their meals from their Ceviche de pescado, pollo a la braza, lomo asado, and chicha morado drink. Their best dish? Ceviche hands down.

If you're looking to try something "different" than this unique Peruvian restaurant is right up your ally. Friends and I are in town visiting from out of state, we were recommended to try the chicken chaufa rice with their specialty green sauce and O-M-G 😳... I wish I could take it home with me! Dinner time was a little crowded... More

Easily considered as delectable sea food - order the "Jalea Personal" and the Ceviche, fresh and light on your wallet and awesome to your taste buds. Roast chicken and the various rice dishes are terrific and huge in quantity. This is easily a go to restaurant when you want great food without big bills and romantic ambience. The only downside...

We researched sometime to look for a restaurant where we might find “Peruvian-style” roasted chicken. Piolin has consistently come up to be the top establishment in the Hartford, Connecticut, as reviewed by other Trip Advisors in the past. There were ample parking spots within a few block areas in the street from the restaurant. The restaurant was packed, but we... More

I think I’ve only dined here 2-3 times but I have gotten take out a bunch of times. Its definitely a bit of a dive but its good authentic food. Consistently good Peruvian food and reasonably priced. I love the green sauce!

Fabulous seafood rice (arroz con mariscos) and seafood ceviche. Restaurant atmosphere is just average with a loud Peruvian TV usually playing in the background. Take-out is a good option!

This little place really "packs a punch " with authentic Peruvian dishes. At first it seems a bit costly, but the portions were big, and as custom, dining with friends, we order several different items and divide amongst ourselves the delicacies. It's nice to see such a great mom and pop shop with great flavor and service.

This restaurant, besides giving you enough food for like 8 people, is amazing and resonably priced. I had leftovers for 2 days. If I lived closer I would eat here all the time.
