Great quality and great service. A good steakhouse isn't gfor everyone but I enjoy it for a change. This place is as good as grill 23, mortons, Abe & Louis....and you don't have to deal with Boston traffic, parking, etc. I highly recommend it.

My husband and I enjoy dining at different steakhouses and we have been to many in Boston, NY and other places around the country but Pellana is our favorite one! They have the typical dark wood walls we love to see in our steakhouses, the bar,drinks and bartenders are superb! The servers are efficient and friendly and the steaks and... More

Went here for a company dinner, and while the food was excellent, the restaurant was very loud in a relatively small space. The private room we had was much, much quieter so that was nice. The crab cake appetizers were delicious, chocked full of real crab and not too much filler, and the tomato, basil, and mozzarella were huge! Also,... More

My family and I visited Pellana in November as my daughter came home from college. My husband and I frequent upscale steakhouses. We have been to Capital Grill, Ruth's Chris, Flemings, ect. Although we had to send our margaritas back ( they were too sour), the beef was outstanding. It's the best beef that we have ever had, period! The... More

I visit this restaurant at least two times a year for special occasion. The Food is wonderful. There steaks are meaty and succulent and prepared exactly as you request. The entire staff work endlessly to make your dining experience the best it can be. This is not your every week stop as you will spend a good dollar, but you... More

Tonights dining experience was absolutely fantastic! Pellana provides an amazing ambiance, top quality food (especially steaks), and incredible service deliverability. James, the server, was exceptional. He truly makes you feel like your the most important table of the night. I've had other servers at Pellana that provide similar service, however, James stands out. Apps, entrees, and cocktails were incredible. This... More

We have not been here in several years but I can say that the food is as good now as it was then. We sat at the bar where you have a choice of the bar menu or the dining room menu. The dining menu is pricey but the food is excellent, you get what you pay for. The bar... More

This is the restaurant we go to as a treat. The prices are higher than average but so is the quality of the food and the service. I would suggest sitting at the bar if there is just two of you, if you group is larger definitely call for a reservation. Have a martini, order an app or a salad.... More

We went to Pellana for a friends 40th bday. We found the atmosphere nice but certainly not exceptional or interesting. The food was good, not great. My steak was not cooked as ordered but the rest of the table seemed fine with the preparation. Our appetizers were fresh but nothing inspiring. We had the potatoes au gratin and asparagus which...
