Overview

A longtime Bernal Heights neighborhood gem, Piqueo’s, serves vibrant, comforting Peruvian cuisine like beef heart and chicken anticuchos (grilled skewers of meat), fresh seafood ceviches and fried yucca balls. The intimate dining room, kitted out with a chalkboard menu on the wall, sports an energetic vibe thanks to rounds of sangria, a Spanish-dominated wine list and dedicated regulars.
