A must try restaurant!

I have been going to Perlo's since it's inception, I have never in all of those years gotten a bad meal or poor service. The servers are upbeat, pleasant and great at their jobs. The food is to die for! I have so many favorite dishes that I find it hard to choose when I am there. The dining area... read more

If you are seeking either home style Italian cuisine, or specials with flair, Perlo's is not to be missed. From the friendly hostess staff, or the owner Donna, greeting you at the door, to the friendly bar staff and patrons, and through what will be an accelerated meal (whether off the menu or specials) you will not be disappointed.

Simply fabulous! First rate service and lovely food. Donna and her team are amazing! We had a large party and our event was treated like an intimate dinner. We so appreciated all the little details.

Oh never will we go back. First, too expensive. Second, the sauce is terrible and so is the service. I can't believe we spent so much for such a lousy meal. DO NOT GO THERE.

I work in the area and always see so many cars so we thought we'd try it. Service was very good but everything we ordered was just run of the mill - I can probably do better at home and I'm not even Italian.

Visited the restaurant on a whim because we were in the neighborhood and were pleasantly surprised. The dining room had been beautifully renovated since we were last there. The atmosphere was comfortable and homey. Our meals were delicious and reasonably priced. The staff worked so well together. When my husband was given a salad with the wrong dressing, another server... More

We recently attended a reunion of cousins. There were 11 of us & we had reservations at Perlo's. The table was ready & waiting for us & as we filed in our waitress happily took drink orders. She was attentive throughout the whole meal & graciously stood on a chair to take a group picture. The food was wonderful! I'm... More
