Dude, LOVE IT HERE. Wow what a nice find. I mean, it's small and parking is street (or valet for $7?) but I personally love "tapas" style. Also the food is pretty good. I do notice that they seem to reuse this one sweet/smokey/spicy sauce on a few of their dishes but I mean it's still good. Ambience has a great vibe. I can see myself coming back here for casual drinks to a nice date. Highlights: Sea Bass MAC N CHEESE La Parmesana (day boat scallops) Arroz con Erizp (peruvian style paella) Cordero (lamb chops) Seco de Pato (crispy duck w/ beer sauce) - MY FAV DISH. I could eat this allll to myself :) Alfajores - SO GOOD. I'm not a cookie person but man do these shortbreads literally melt in your mouth. Wish I could eat them all by myself--seriously.

Over priced. If you're going to serve me anything on a stick it better be wedged between a piece of gold. Just kidding. Food wise--the taste of everything was on point. My favorite was the fried duck leg with cilantro rice and the steak tartar. Steak tar tar is composed of raw beef which is definitely an acquired taste. Also ordered the cod and the sea urchin paella and did not think it was anything impressive. However--$7 dollars for valet just to park my car across the street? Hmm not about that life. The Bougie foodie life is appealing but make sure you're not getting completely ripped off. $17 for a small bowl of anything is not worth it.

Picca is the best restaurant I visited this year! Peruvian and Japanese fusion is the most exotic cuisine I've had! So, my cousin came into town and wanted to try a new restaurant so we ended up at Picca. My first impression walking in was wow, this is a romantic spot for a date. It's dark, candle lit, and very intimate. We had a few items on the menu that were all very satisfying and I could't stop indulging on the food. The portions are small like tapas style but it's perfect because you can enjoy a variety of quality food over quantity. We had the CEVICHE CRIOLLO Seabass, rocoto, canchas which was not your typical ceviche dish. It was sushi cevich! Yah! ANTICUCHO BLACK COD miso anticucho, crispy sweet potato, delicious but small portion. CHORITOS black mussels, smoked bacon, aji amarillo, this was delicious with dipping sauce to die for! ARROZ CON ERIZO peruvian paella, seafood medley, sea urchin sauce, ok I DIE! This was amazingly tasty with sea urchin sauce kicker! We had other sushi dishes as well. And I had the avocado cocktail, forgot the name but it's a must try! To top it off with a great dinner, we also sat next to Pau Gasol!!! He was the most friendliest and awesome guy! I got to meet him while debating back and forth with my cousin if we should bother him while he's having dinner. We wanted a picture with him but we knew it will cause a scene in the dark romantic ambiance. The only complaint we had was our waiter was a bit rude and he was not as attentive as we hoped. We asked for bread and he never got back to us so we had to ask another waiter. Granted, the night we went was a bit busy but thatls no excuse. Overall, dinner was amazing and seeing Pau Gasol was wonderful! I would go back but on a date! Restroom was upstairs. Parking - there's valet or park over at Ralphs and go buy something. Make reservations and you'll be good to go! Not for groups or kids.

I have never tasted food anywhere in the world that was as good as this. When I think of my favorite dinning experience in my life, I go back to Picca every time. They had this steak in uni butter that probably was the single best bite of meat I have ever had. It was ridiculous. And there pana cotta was without a doubt the best I have ever had. WOW! Was it perfect? Well.... no. This is like a testing menu in my opinion. I left wanting more food in me... I was still a little hungry. So is this a place you go to all the time when you want to eat. Probably not. Its a place to go to experience and feel things you have never never felt before. It's like disney land for your taste buds. I mean we all like the Magic Kingdom, but after a week with the kids, you just want to go home and eat cereal. That being said, I want Picca again right now.

Picca was great! The diver scallops, oysters, calimari, and lampchops were delicious. The service was excellent. It was quite crowded and very popular when we were there.

If you want to try some good Peruvian (with some Asian fusion/influence) tapas, then you need to come check this place out. I've had this place bookmarked for a long time and I've heard good things about it. Finally decided to make it happen! [AMBIANCE] Slightly noisy, good for dates or dinner with a small group (2-4 people). When we had dinner there on a warm summer evening, there was no A/C so I'm not sure if it was broken that day or what.. but we were sweating during our entire meal. [SEATING] This place was smaller than I expected. They had a lot of small tables for 2-4 people. [FOOD] *SECO DE PATO - crispy braised duck leg, peruvian beer sauce, cilantro rice --Good. The duck was done well. I liked the cilantro rice. Had a good flavor. *ANTICUCHO BLACK COD - miso anticucho, crispy sweet potato --Amazing! The cod was done perfectly. This was probably my favorite dish of the night. :) *CEVICHE CRIOLLO - seabass, rocoto leche de tigre, canchas, sweet potato --Very good! I love ceviche and they did a good job. Very refreshing. *COSTILLITAS - baby back ribs, rocoto-chancaca, coleslaw rustico --Moist and tasty! *BISTECK A LO POBRE - skirt steak, fried egg, pan fried banana, chickpeas tacu tacu --Good, but it wasn't great. The steak was done well and the seasoning was good. I wasn't too impressed with it. [DESSERT] *CHURROS - YUM! You can never go wrong with churros! :D [PARKING] If you're lucky, you can find some free street parking nearby. Otherwise, they have valet. Thanks for the good food Chef Ricardo Zarate!

we came here for our friend's birthday and there was 9 of us. For this many people we ordered the following. ANTICUCHO CORAZON. beef heart, rocoto-walnut pesto ARROZ CON ERIZO. peruvian paella, seafood medley, sea urchin sauce ANTICUCHO OJO DE COSTILLA. 32oz bone-in rib eye, huancaina COSTILLITAS. baby back ribs, rocoto-chancaca, coleslaw rustico x4 CEVICHE CROCANTE. halibut, leche de tigre, crispy calamari x2 POLLO SALTADO. wok chicken, onion, tomato, ginger, papas fritas 13 House special Gumbo. We were more than full with all this food. Our favorite was the Costillitas, we liked it so much that we had to order more. The meat just came off the bone so easily. I also enjoyed the house gumbo, and the anticucho corazon. The special cocktails they have a not very good. Even the pisco sour was just okay. I have had better in other places. Our party tried many of the cocktails and just weren't having it. Your best bet is ask the amazingly wonderful server what you like and he can recommend something else for you.
