Last night, my wife and I visited Parillo's to try their Italian buffet. The buffet had 2 different kinds of salad, great Italian bread, soup, artichokes, eggplant, sausage & peppers, fish, Italian potatoes, 2 kinds of chicken and meatballs. All this for under $13.

I moved to Florida decades ago but whenever I return to upstate NY, the Armory Grill is a priority. It's cozy & dependable, but more importantly, the Parillos & staff make you feel like family. My favorite foods include the artichokes francais (appetizer), frutta di mare & cavatelli w/ broccoli. Insider tip: Should you have an event catered, be sure... More

We arrived around 8:00 pm last Tuesday. The restaurant had a good amount of tables filled for a Tuesday nite. Unfortunately, there was only 1 woman working most of them so service was a little slow - not her fault. And she had only been working there one week. She did a great job, all things considered. I had an... More

There's a lot to say about the decor of Parillos from there beautiful stained glass lamps to the wonderful photos of our... More

I was passing through on my way to Rochester. There were few choices in that area so I based my decision on TA reviews. The place looks like a dive bar on one side and an old lady's parlour on the restaurant side. Once past the decor, the food is actually very good and home made. I had the shaved... More

This restaurant is tucked away on the south side of Amsterdam. It was clean, but the service was a little slow. Our meal was fine, however just average. It was good, but nothing to rave about.

We went to this Italian restaurant with high hopes. Wednesday night is their buffet night. Too many similar chicken and pasta dishes that somehow all tasted bland. Not impressed at all with how slowly the food was replenished. We have has great tasting individual meals previously at this Italian restaurant but don't waste your time on Wednesdays. If you have...

I'm not Italian, but this place makes me feel as if I were back visiting my Mamma after a time away. The dining room is a cozy homey place full of antiques, a sofa, and many personal family photos and keepsakes. The staff was so welcoming and helpful that I truly felt at home. The dinner was excellent. I had... More

Apparently they've been here for 44 years with the same family owning it, the couple that cooks in he kitchen. Lots of charm inside, as it looks like an old school Italian restaurant. We needed a place to jump off the road on our way from Geneseo to Boston and this was a recommendation from TA, and we're glad we... More
