Amsterdam NY is out in the middle of nowhere. On occasion its necessary for me to go to the next town over, Canajoharie, for work. I've had no luck finding a good place for dinner in Canajoharie, so decided to venture further away. One of our coworkers recommended Parillo's. What a surprise! Its a third generation establishment. The mom, Julie,... More

Parrillos is lacking in location but the food makes up for it. The warm bread and oil with salad starter could leave me satisfied, then the large plates of pasta with the best true Italian gravy in the area. Waitstaff is busy but attentive as possible. Wish I lived closer!!!

Parillo's Armory Grill is definitely a very good place for traditional Italian food. I had the Veal Theresa which was very good - hot, fresh, tasty. My wife ordered the Bella Jacqueline chicken dish, and also liked it. The service a bit annoying/slow, but, to be fair, they were very busy. The bar is a good time, but the house... More

We looked forward to dining again at the Armory Grill, but last Saturday, 12/21/13, was such a disappointment. Up until this time we have always loved everything about this restaurant. Two of us ordered the Veal 3-Cheese dinner special, and when it arrived it was cold and we could not even cut it with our knife, it was so tough.... More

Definitely a good place for regular Italian food. Homemade chicken noodle soup was delicious and the salad also was very good. My husband had a seafood pasta dish that he enjoyed, and I wish I would have done the same.. I ordered braciole, and it was dry and very spicy and almost impossible to cut. The service was very good,... More

Food was very tasty!!! Hearty portions on the Steaks; veal dishes were amazing. Ambience was nice; but the service needs more attention!

Just back from an excellent meal at Armory Grill. I've been a few times and always wish I would not have waited so long to return. We arrived without a reservation and were seated within a few minutes. The restaurant was busy but not completely full. The wait staff was busy but keeping up. Our meals consisted of good soup,...

Went there with 11 family members for my mother in laws 80th birthday. Bar service was excellent. Took almost 45 min past our reservation of 6:45 to be seated. Servers were surely. Soup was marginal. Salad was below average. Main course was substandard. Waitress asked us to pass the plates rather then collect them herself. Reemd avoid.

Parillo's Armory Grill is sort of hard to find, but well worth the effort. It was recommeded by the desk clerk at our hotel and we were glad she gave us the heads up.. The food was great, atmosphere excellent, service fantastic, and the price very reasonable. Going there is a cultural experience. Try it!

Such good Italian food. Waitress was very accommodating when we asked to be moved to a quieter table, away from small children. We had chicken soup, excellent, salad, excellent. For entrees, strip steak, was wonderful, and chicken Perillo over angel hair pasta, again, excellent. We would definitely go back. We were not from the area and relied on Trip Advisor.
