We love Perlos! It's one of our favorite spots to have dinner with friends. The bar is a great time for cocktails before dinner. Dinner is always delicious. Our very favorite appetizer is the Sauteed calamari. It's truly the best in (or out of) town. We love it so much we order a pan for our family Christmas Eve dinner.... More

My husband and I made a reservation for our 12th wedding anniversary for 7pm on a Friday night. We arrived right at 7, and were told it would be a few minutes. We waited near the bar, but did not get a drink. A couple came in at 7:15 with NO reservation, and were seated immediately. I did not understand... More

Always have the best dinners at Perlo's. Wide selection, pasta, seafood, chicken, etc. We always have great service, always nice to see Donna and Brian. We like the wine selections also. We always go to meet friends, relatives or just the 2 of us. The best calamari in town for sure!!

My wife and I stopped in for dinner and what a meal we had!!! Linguini and white clams sauce is the best I have ever had!! My wife (as picky as she is) LOVED the shrimp scampi....the shrimp were huge!! Had the best dirty martini....and it was only 6 bucks!! Awesome all- around experience as always!!

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

Once again perlos hit the mark for Mothers Day Brunch! So much delicious food! Came in with 16 of my family and everyone raved about everything!! Food was always hot and all the pans were always fully stocked. Can't say enough about this place and the food! Highly recommended for everyone to try!

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. The waitstaff was fabulous. I literally cannot say enough about how great they were. This is what makes a restaurant, owners.....pay attention......it's the waitstaff!! They could... More
