Great Bread and Pizza

They have the best Italian bread around. It is a hard crust Italian and they also have Sicilian pizza. We were amazed at the large cupcakes we had there that were delicious. Be sure to try the sharp provolone cheese.

The restaurant attached to the famous bakery has won my family as customers! The bread, of course, but who knew their sauce was incredible! Plus they were kind to two little boys, which unfortunately is not universal.

This is becoming a local classic. Great service and a menu to tempt your taste buds. I have been many times and each time have had a great experience. Nice outdoor patio dining and occassionalljy they have some entertainment.

One might imagine that a city like Schenectady which has some excellent Italian restaurants would have some great pizza. Alas, no. But Perreca's is great-nice freeform crust with fresh ingredients. We recently took our granddaughter Rose after her swimming class. Yum!

Perreca's Bakery is a classic in Schenectady and famous for its bread: hard and crusty on the outside, dense and soft on the inside. With the addition of their restaurant, you can now enjoy great Italian themed meals as well. but their breakfast is a sleeper secret: try the eggs in purgatory!

We often have Perreca's cater work events as it's close by. The food is always good. But the bread! Oh my the best italian bread ever! If you're stopping in for bread, be sure to get there early as they sell out quickly!

They are well known for their italian bread throughout the area. They now have a great Italian restaurant right next store to their bakery. Their food is authentic and delicious!

Maria P comes up with these ideas. Eggs in Purgatory consists of two eggs cooked in a spicy tomato sauce, served with a chunk of bread; HER BREAD! This place is always full of interesting people, enjoying good food. Better than pub grub, but not elegant. Considering its location on Jay Street in Little Italy, who would not expect that?...

I go to the bakery, not their next door sit down eatery. The bakery offers a variety of outstanding and fairly priced Italian goodies but the standouts, in my mind, are the bread and tomato pie. The bread is legendary and the rule of thumb for many loyal patrons is buy one or two to take home and one small... More

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 the artichoke appetizer and a salad to begin. Both were... More
