Great Italian

Went here for the first time. Had driven by several times and it didn't look like much from the road. But when you walk in, it's huge! 5 of us were able to be seated within 5 minutes at 6:30 on a Saturday! You are immediately hit with the great smell of all the food. The food was very good!... read more

Perlos is great! We called Perlos on short notice when our private party was cancelled the day of the event by another establishment. Perlos had a table ready for 16 people within 20 minutes, on a Saturday, without reservations or any advance notice, in an already full dining room. The food was great, service was great, atmosphere was great, they... More

We have been to Perlo's several times but I just realized I hadn't reviewed it!! My daughter had her wedding reception there. It was an incredible buffet. We took our grandson there for his high school graduation. Recently we had an out of town guest and were craving Italian food so we went to Perlo's. Our guest had the SAUSAGE,... More

The food was mediocre, the staff was friendly and welcoming, but I wont return to Perlo's. Our server forgot to bring 2 beverages ordered by my group. The waitress was friendly, but responded by saying that we wouldn't be charged for the 2 drinks we ordered (and never received) as if we were being compensated in some way. In addition... More

I was fortunate enough to be at Perlos for their wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. I was overwhelmed by the warmth and hospitality Donna and her team show each customer. Not only was the restaurant busy all day but I later learned Donna and Brian quietly donated Thanksgiving dinners throughout the course of the day to a local shelter. I for one... More
