Great Italian Food!

After passing this place a few times as we headed to our hotel, I continued to be amazed at the crowded parking lot every evening! We finally made a reservation and were so happy.

After living in Rochester for a decade and passing Perlo's many times, we finally went for dinner with friends and had a great time! The restaurant is "homey" Italian and given the decor, I wondered if Frank Sinatra might walk in at any moment. It was a Saturday night so the dining rooms were busy, but at 7:45 we didn't... More

The restaurant was almost full, but the service was fast and helpful. We were a party of four, two natives of Rochester and two visitors. First time at this restaurant for us all. Perlos has a great local reputation and the quality of the food lived up to the reputation. Surprisingly large portions.

Brick-front, corner restaurant with tight parking and a crowded lot... We felt good securing a prime parking spot (we had a family member w/ a wheelchair). That was the only "good" about this restaurant - - - We tried entering the establishment, but that's easier said than done. The one door in and out does not have a waiting area... 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

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
