We had reservations for dinner right after the show at Proctors. Walked in, staff was sweeping, restaurant was dirty. Greeted by unfriendly staff. Service was extremely slow! Some staff may have been new as not sure of what to say or do. Only two waitresses. Food was not good. I heard a woman at a table next to me telling... More

We've stopped in a couple times over the last month, and I have to say it's a real jewel. We went for dinner a few weeks ago, food was exceptional (chicken piccata was the best I've had, husband said lasagna was excellect), the service was great, it's just a nice small local family restaurant. This past week, we met friends... More

A group of Friends and I went for lunch. I ordered a meatball Pannini. What a terrible sandwich, the bread was great (Perreca's bakery is famous for the bread), but there was one burnt meatball on a huge section of bread. Way too much bread with no filling expect the one sad,bad,burnt meatball. For desert I tried a Lemon bar,... More

We were here on a Friday night with friends that we hadn't seen in quite a while. They go here frequently, as they live in Schenectady. We are about an hour away. There were six of us at the table. The menu had so much to choose from, plus the specials. Right off the bat, we started having fun with... More

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast here. Menu selection was perfect and the bill was definitely nice. For 6 people bill was under $40! Will be back to try their lunch and dinner menu.

We are frequent visitors to More Perreca's and thought we would treat an out of state friend for dinner on Sunday, June 1, 2014. There were two or three tables with patrons, so we had the choice of tables. We were seated by a waitress who looked lost, new or both. After waiting a few minutes, our assigned waitress arrived....

A friend and I had lunch yesterday at More Perreca's. Perreca's bakery, next door, has the best Italian bread in town. So yesterday we finally checked out the restaurant and it was a huge disappointment - over priced and deceptive. We tried to order based on the menu information and were told that the sandwich we wanted did not come... More

We had a great meal here last night. We started by sharing the fried Calamari and pepper appetizer that was a special. The coating was crisp and each bite delicious. We are fairly light eaters, so ordered salads for dinner. I've never seen a meatball salad on a menu before, but this one was exactly what I wanted, and with... More

Stopped here on a Sunday evening. Restaurant was virtually empty. Have always been impressed by their bakery items, so was confident that dinner would be good as well. Ordered the roasted cauliflower appetizer which was described as carmelized with black olives and rosemary. The dish served was very obviously steamed cauliflower as there was no color, little flavor, and most... More

I visited Perreca's on 4/10/14 for lunch and went back for diner on 4/11/14. I had the Chicken Parm. It was outstanding as was the salad and real Italian dressing & bread. The price was fantastic. The service was impeccable.
