We dropped by for lunch and am so glad we did. The food was delicious and the portion sizes generous. We didn't even need to eat dinner. It's Latin American comfort food like mom and grandma make without being in the kitchen for hours.

Great food. Reminded me of when I lived in Puerto Rico. Authentic Spanish food. 5 star 100% every place else pales in comparison.

Before I moved into college, my mother and I decided to come here for a last meal. I ordered the Carne Guisada, which was a good choice. The meal started with a small salad that had fresh, crunchy carrots and lettuce. After a short wait,...More

Delicious simple "criolla " Latino food. Small modest and informal locale. Located near downtown Albany. Frequented by locals.

Ok, so i've only tried the grilled shrimp but it is so tasty and can never get myself to try anything else! My husband got the rotisserie chicken and it was yummy as was the fried whole fish.

The grilled shrimp is absolutely addicting. We do recommend you try Camarones al Pio Pio. It does not have the lemon sauce but its homemade stew brings another flavor to our shrimp. Hope to see you guys soon!

mr. pio pio might be good for albany (i don't know as it's the only place i've eaten there), but its food can't compete with similarly priced venues in big cities. though the chicken was tender, the ribs and churrasco were definitely NOT slow cooked....More

Visited Mr. Pio Pio in Albany with my family of six. The Trip Advisor reviews influenced our decision for dining and the reviews were accurate. The place is small with only a few tables. However, on the Tuesday we visited there was plenty of space...More
