The menu was the typical Rochester Italian fare, which I really like because I live in the south and you can't get good quality Italian food there. The salad was a little anemic but the bread and entree were great. Great service too. I would go there again.

A must stop......atmosphere, old time service, great people, great food! I would get the sautéed calamari appetizer and anything that they offer "blackened" as it was amazing on swordfish. The pork chop and anything Italian are also cant miss!

I made a reservation for a large group of 40 people for dinner after a soccer tournament and Perlos was extremely accommodating. The waitresses were excellent and were able to split checks for our large group. It's a nice casual restaurant, the food was delicious, and it was an overall good experience. I would definitely come back to Perlos the... More

I was there just the other night....and it's the same as always. This is THE restaurant Yogi Berra talked about....."that place is so busy, NOBODY goes there anymore!". Fabulous food...always consistent, the bartenders are the best in the county, the service - the best. Donna greets everyone with a smile...and why not - she has the best restaurant around. What...

After finishing our last exam of the semester, 4 of my classmates and I decided to stop into Perlo's for a meal to celebrate our hard work this semester. We were greeted by the extremely friendly owner. She showed us to a lovey round table where we then greeted by our server who was equally as friendly! We glanced over... More

We had a large group for a buffet meal. The food selections were well prepared and tasty. The service was way better than expected--thoughtful, friendly and competent. The decor is comfortable, but a bit dark on a dreary day. We need to try this for a regular meal to see the variety in the menu.

Stopped in recently and they have updated the menu with some great new dishes! The sautéed calamari is a must try as is the cioppino! Also look for the red snapper special!

Went to Perlos for Mothers Day and the brunch was once again fantastic! Food was hot and delicious and no one left hungry. After speaking with the owner, she told me that they had a new menu with some new dishes and wines and was given a copy to take home. The prices are still extremely reasonable and the new... More

We had a large dining party, called twice to make sure they could accommodate us and was reassured they could. When our seating time arrived we were told there weren't enough chairs! So we had a 30 minute wait in the tiny crowded bar area and were freely given dirty looks. Poor placement of our long table in front of... More
