Aji Picante (CLOSED)

December 2012
1711 Murray Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15217

Aji Picante on Urbanspoon


  1. Loved Aji Piccante! They served Peruvian food, which I was nervous about but everything was very good. The service was good and the prices were amazing. They are a BYOB facility and they do not have a corkage fee. This was our holiday Grub Club so there was plenty of wine to go around! We tried several appetizers including two different empanadas and ceviche dishes and nobody had any complaints about anything. I would highly recommend Aji Piccante.

  2. This ranks as probably my favorite pick of 2012. I had never had Peruvian food before so it was a food adventure. The apps were very good and sized for sharing. I enjoyed the beet salad and the cod entree. Chocolate creme brulee was delish. The BYOB feature is always a plus with our group. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for something fresh and new.

  3. Loved this place, I would agree it is at the top of list for 2012. The ceviches were extremely fresh. I didn't think I liked beets until I tried the beet salad. The cod entree was beautifully presented and tasted incredible. I didn't care for the rice pudding but the creme brulee was fantastic. I would not hesitate recommending this place. The bill was surprisingly inexpensive and the byob is always a plus!
