The closest thing you'll taste of authentic Brasilian Food! This is the best Brasilian steakhouse I have been to this far aside from Majorica in Rio de Janiero! My family have been coming here for years and for me it'll be 10 years now. Food is always consistent and never had a bad meal! I'm glad that they are expanding... More

I was looking looking for a place to go with a group of friends to introduce them to some great wines and somebody suggested Picanha. I had not been in 8-10 years but, figured we'd give it another try. They had expanded and refurbished since my last visit. Bright and clean, we had a nice big table and got situated.... More

Best food in the North East - Reasonable prices - Extremely clean and nice restauraunt. We never miss an opportunity for at least one visit when in Philadelphia. Picanha has never disappointed us in five-years of visits. Nice folks and great food!!!

My husband and I go to dinner with another couple once a month. We decided to try Picanha in Feb. What a wonderful treat. We have been to 2 other Brazilian restaurants in NJ and PA. This was the best. The meat that they brought to the table was very well flavored and cooked to perfection. The salad bar had... More

My colleague from Saudi Arabia was visiting Philadelphia for the first time for a 10 day workshop at Salus U in Elkins Park, so after picking up Alfarghal at the airport and making the obligatory stops at Termini's for cannoli and Independence Hall, it was dinner at Picanha, as he never had South American food before. Since he's a soccer... More

My husband and I went out for a special dinner and chose Picanha. We have not been in the restaurant for a while, but it seems they upgraded. Nothing fancy, but a very welcoming and happy atmosphere. The food was delicious, and it was very fresh. It was not crowded when we got there so the food was hot and... More

I had purchased a coupon from Restaurant.com. I had never been here before. My husband was skeptical as he prefers to go to Restaurants that he is familiar with. We were both very pleasantly surprised. The meal is buffet style. You can choose either full buffet for $24.99 or per pound charge of $7.99 per pound. The food is very... More

I have been to other Brazilian restaurants (don't want to mention names) that are known as the best. But picanhas is much better. Trust me. Not comparing with back home :/ But out of the Brazilian steakhouses here in Pa I have been Picanhas is one of the tops I love.

My family and I have visited Picanha numerous times over the last 10 years. They offer traditional Brazilian food without the glamour and high price of the two big rodizio's in town. They offer rodizio (table service), as well as the option to pay by the pound. Unless you can literally eat an entire cow it truly is a better... More
