Good food, reasonably price

We sought an early dinner after the matinee show at Proctor's. This was just the thing to warm us up on yet another cold winter day. Waitress was knowledgeable and attentive throughout. A special pre fixe menu- appetizer, soup/salad, entrée & dessert for $19.95; it was tempting. Instead we tried... read more

I was here last week for breakfast at 12 noon-they wouldnt serve lunch to us. The food was good although it wasnt what I was hoping to eat but unfortunately the service was terrible. Had to wait to get syrup and butter and by the time it was finally received, the food was cold, The service was also very poor... More

I've only been here for breakfast so I can't speak to the lunch/dinner food or service. Went with a friend and enjoy a delicious (and huge) cappuccino. We shared a piece of the fried dough which was just right. Large portion, so easily shared. It had just the right 'dough' consistency: not airy and empty but nice and dense. We... More

Had lunch with friends recently, The food, service and value for the meal was excellent as always. I also like to go to the bakery connected to the restaurant for fresh homemade Italian bread, cold cuts, Homemade pizza, cookies. Never a disappointment.

My husband and I love to go to this little restaurant for breakfast after a morning row on the Mohawk. They serve authentic Italian food with their own fresh baked hard-crust Italian bread the family has been baking for over 80 years. The service is very good but this is not a fast-food restaurant so you have to wait for... More

Perreca's italian bread is the BEST. Everything at the bakery is GREAT...but my family has loved the bread since I was a child...there is truly no comparison.

Perfection in a loaf is about all one can ask for in Italian bread. Hard crust from the brick ovens and perfection for making a hoagie or slopping up tomato gravy from a bowl of pasta. Stop here it is worth every bite but get there early as the loaves sell out. Sometimes I buy 24 loaves and freeze them... More

Companion, who now lives in Florida, has missed the bread since moving there, so we stopped in for lunch. Eggplant Parmesan and sausage & pepper paninis, each made with half of a small round bread, were absolutely fabulous. The side of tomato basil soup was also a tasty treat. The desserts looked wonderful,and I probably would have opted for the... More
