If you don’t have an Italian Mama, or if you do and she doesn’t feel like cooking and you NEED homemade Italian, go to Perlo’s.
The food is delicious, comforting homemade Italian- and I gauge the quality of my Italian restaurants by their meatballs- that’s...just me- and the meatball appetizer is the BEST!!More
Last night I wanted to treat myself to a birthday meal of lasagna. I’ve b heard good to great reviews of Perlos so I thought I would start a new tradition. Ordering over the phone went well with a pleasant exchange. Pick up was easy....The meal was warm, the salad was a bit brown, perhaps made earlier in the day. The bread was tough. The lasagna did not have any Italian seasoning so I added my own red pepper, oregano and basil. I couldn’t detect any meat. The menu stated it is “smothered with our homemade classic red sauce.” It came far short of that. I’ve had better lasagna across the street. Looks like next year I’ll have to come up with a new tradition or go across the street for a real Italian lasagna.More
Great Spot for Dinner. We found Perlo’s while traveling through the area and we were not disappointed. Food was fresh and tasted homemade. The meatball app, Cesar salad, beef Marsala and gnocchi with bolognese all were delicious. Service was a little inattentive - glasses were...empty more than once, one drink was never delivered from bar and our takeout box took forever to arrive. This is a trying time for restaurants so I’m sure that service routines have been altered by COVID. It was the service hiccups that prevented a 5 star rating but we will definitely return.More
Met 3 friends for dinner. We wore masks & tables were social distanced.the food and 🍷 wine were a nice treat from our normal cook at 🏠 home.waiteess seemed very pleased we were there & gave good service.portion of veal parmesan was so large I...took it I took home enough for two more meals. Arancini appetizer good too.More
From the moment you walk in you're greeted with a friendly face and a warm atmosphere. The drinks are a heavy pour and well worth it. The menu is extensive and has something for everybody. Portions are good size and the meals are delicious ....Always a hard choice because everything on the menu is appealing. I've been going here for years and am never disappointed.More
I highly recommend Perlos Restaurant we ordered our Thanksgiving meal to go it was absolutely fantastic. The Turkey was moist and delicious the stuffing was really good the mashed potatoes were to die for it even included bread salad and green beans. I will be...ordering the chicken French family meal this week. The curbside pickup was very well organized in and out quick I did not even leave my car.More
Just another crappy Italian-American (NOT to be confused with real Italian) restaurant.
Lame iceberg lettuce salad (damn, even Wendy's serves a better lettuce mix).....tasteless chicken French on way undercooked pasta....eggplant parm, mediocre at best (could you spare the cheese?).
I'm done with the Rochester cookie...cutter "Italian" restaurants. From now on, I'm sticking with Mama G's---the only REAL Italian restaurant in Rochester. (I only went to Perlo's because I was invited.)More
I can't tell you how grateful I am to be able to order take out from my favorite restaurant during this time. Their system for ordering and pick up is literally flawless! The food tasted as though I was eating right in their dining room,...hot, fresh, and amazing! Thank you to the entire Perlo's crew for making sure I can continue to get my favorite food in Rochester! ❤More
Fish fry to go. 1st and last time. The fish was very good but,, missing bread and fries were too soggy to eat (they were underneath the fish) and salad was a joke, 2 large tablespoons worth. fish fry container, which they charge $1 for...was collapsed.
All in all they will not get my business for take out again. Will return when they open.
By the way 20% gratuity is very very steep, almost $7 to bring me a bag and put in trunk. I feel like they were nickel and diming me.More
