The service was very good. They served Italian bread (which was excellent), and provided olive oil to dip the bread in. I had pasta, which was cooked perfect, but i found the sauce to be bitter. Was over-priced. The owner was personable and definitely tried.

Three of us stopped by for lunch at 1PM on a weekday and sat at one of the dozen tables positioned near the window overlooking the street; three other tables were occupied. We were immediately offered beverages an d then the opportunity to order; we decided to wait a bit to further study the menu. We were all tempted by... More

Walked in 45 minutes before closing. The owner greeted me personally. I asked what was good and he showed me some filet mignon he had just cut. I had that, salad, a glass of wine, and a cannoli. They all were very good. Mille gratzie!

Always try to get by here when I'm visiting relatives. The pizza is homemade and excellent. Love, love the egg salad, tuna melt and French onion soup too. Overall great place with friendly service.

We had dinner at Caffe Peroni during a brief visit to South Boston in June 2014. We literally stumbled upon the place along the main street. Though it was Saturday night, there was only one other occupied table in the place. It initially gave us pause, but it was wholly unwarranted. The space is very interesting and is kind of... More

We were just blown away by the quality of food at Caffe Peroni. From start to finish, everything was freshly prepared and delicious! We had prosciutto and melon, spinach risotto, ravioli with a sherry cream sauce, and limoncello marscapone cake. Every dish was authentic and the risotto was better than what I had in Milan, Italy. The chef prepared the... More

I have had several lunches and dinners here over the last couple of years. Sometimes it takes a little bit of time, and sometimes the dishes are not up to Rome standards, sometimes they are excellent however. Despite some small issues, it is a fantastic place, especially considering the town it is in. If you are looking for a large... More

My son and husband and I recently had lunch here – the experience was one of the worst we've had in years. First it took us 15 minutes to get our menus. My husband had the chicken Parmesan sandwich. There was no red sauce on the sandwich and there were three little tomato slices instead. I had the chicken vegetable... More

This is a restaurant in the european style. The chef takes your order, then cooks it. If you don;t see what you want on the menu, just ask, and the chef will probably be able to make it for you. I ate there twice on a recent visit to the area and enjoyed both of my meals. Excellent selection of... More
