If you're looking for a place where they know you and you want to stay close to home, Perlo's is one of those spots. We arrived early on a snowy Sunday evening and were seated immediately. Our waitress was very friendly, attentive and considerate of special requests. My wife and I split a meal and a salad and it proved... More

Very nice layout, newly done. There are so many choices of dishes that you can't make a discussion. The greens and beans with sausage were awesome, one of the best that we have eaten. Service was great, everyone new their job, friendly and they never got lost in serving the table needs.

We went to Perlo's with a group of 9 people which can sometimes be a problematic situation - not at Perlo's. The wait staff is very experienced and our server managed the full party by herself without a single problem, right down to keeping the ware glasses full. One of he party had a special dietary request which the server... More

My wife and I visited Perlos on a busy Friday night. We were going to eat in the dining room but opted to eat at the bar instead. Bartender was very accommodating and efficient. Food was hot and delicious. Very generous portions and very reasonable prices. Great place to take a date!

Like visiting an old friend or breaking bread with a best friend. There's something for everyone on this menu. Last visit, my wife had pasta carbonara.....terrific; I had pasta aglio olio with anchovies....excellent! Every meal is like a family gathering. The greeting from Donna Perlo will make you feel at home immediately. Pacing the meal is your choice: Need a... More

After reading all the great reviews we thought we were in the wrong restaurant. First we arrived early to have a drink at the bar. Three empty stools great we were told that two of the stools were taken the patrons were outside. OK!! The bartenders were not friendly not even a good evening. The drinks were fine but those...

Unusual menu items (very Italian), delicious meals like a grandmother might make for Sunday dinner. Uniquely named items. Attentive service. Everyone was pleased with their food.

Had a business meeting with a client who had never been to Perlos. They were completely amazed at the food, service and drinks!! The Ciippiono was spectacular and I suggested the chicken French since they were from out of town and had never experienced this local dish....needless to say there was nothing left on their plate! Always a fantastic experience... More
