Did you know that "pica" is an eating disorder where people eat largely non-food items? Well, to my astonishment, we were served delicious Peruvian tapas at Picca instead of pieces of glass and chalk. Already a plus in my book! The restaurant itself and presentation of dishes was beautiful and appetizing, and probably made me enjoy the experience more. Both of the small bites (causa and anticucho) are worth a try, but were so quickly consumed, that I can't remember much about them now. Ceviche was deliciously tangy and had a bountiful amount of seafood--highly recommend! Also, the fried chicken tasted like savory nuggets of deliciousness, but how can you really go wrong with fried chicken? My last favorite dish of the night was the braised oxtail stew, it was just good home-cooking and sopping up the sauce with house bread made it even better. Unfortunately, the paella was too rich and salty, and left me thirsty and chewing on some ice as I was leaving the restaurant...perhaps Picca and pica are slightly synonymous after all.You've got to try it for yourself to judge.

Nice food to nibble on but the server was very rude and slow. We treated him with nothing but respect, yet he was continually short and rude and made it feel like we were inconveniencing him. Took about 30 mins to bring one drink to the table. Super Tiny Servings! The food is good but make sure not to go with an appetite.

One of the "it" places of the moment. Fancy Peruvian with prices to match. Anticuchos and causas that will remind you of that trip to Machu Picchu. Loud and energetic. Don't come here if you're expecting a quiet romantic meal.

Really good Peruvian tapas, especially the costillitas (baby back ribs), arroz con erizo, and the pollo saltado. A few dishes were off like the anticucho diver scallops (a bit burned) and the conchas a la parmesana (scallops served in shells and topped with Parmesan and salt). Picca should take the cheesy scallops off the menu completely! In any case, the restaurant's atmosphere is bright and vibrant and it's ideally located on Pico where you can find plenty of street parking.

Picca- I love EVERYTHING about you. I thank you for providing me and my lovely girlfriends nothing but deliciousness. COSTILLITAS baby back ribs, rocoto-chancaca, coleslaw rustico. (Tip: These ribs are meant to be eaten when hot. so eat them right away). BISTECK O POBRE- skirt steak, fried egg, pan fried banana, chickpeas tacu tacu CEVICHE CRIOLLO- seabass, rocoto leche de tigre, canchas, sweet potato SECO DE PATO- crispy braised duck leg, peruvian beer sauce, cilantro rice ANTICUCHO DIVER SCALLOPS- aji amarillo aioli, wasabi peas CHICHARRON DE POLLO- crispy chicken, salsa criolla, rocoto aioli ANTICUCHO PULPO- octopus, twice-cooked kennebec potato, rocoto rustico SPICY YELLOWTAIL Causa LOMA SALTADO Definitely order 2-3 dishes per person. It's tapas style, so portion are on the smaller size. Everything I mentioned above were outstanding with lots of great unique flavors minus the Anticucho Pulpo. I thought the octopus were overcooked and was too chewy. Cocktails were good as well. I highly recommend getting the Pisco Sour. Parking is definitely tricky in this town, however, they offer valet. I got lucky and scored a meter spot across the street.

On the surface Peruvian tapas may not be a cuisine that get's your mouth watering, but this place is one of the best restaurants in the city that not everyone knows about. Yes, you can earn some serious foodie cred taking someone here. Highlights on the menu included the beef heart, black cod, mussels with bacon and the churros. Don't be shy about the drinks both the Sour and Phil Collins are killer and served with solid presentation.
