Waitress was extremely attentive, although the place was almost empty at 7:30am. Food was good between the breakfast panini and pancakes, with dinner-sized sausage made right there in Schenectady. White and sweet potato home fries were a good touch. However something seemed to be missing - maybe they could offer rolls similar to the wonderful bread made next door.

Went there Sunday, 5/22/16. Very disappointed, ordered lunch special (ziti and meatballs), wife ordered stuffed blueberry french toast.To be fair, they warned us they were running behind due to power loss. No problem, over an hour later food arrived the french toast was pretty sad and my food turned out to be linguini and meatballs (must have been sitting around... More

We dined there on a Thursday evening. We had clams with linguine and chicken piccata. The clams were fine, but the chicken piccata was not. It had no flavor. I asked for some lemon slices or capers. They gladly brought them. That didn't help. Maybe that's because the chicken was floating in about an inch of butter. I really don't... More

This is a small breakfast place in the heart of downtown Schenectady. We were there on a recent Sunday morning and the place was jammed. The tables are small and close together. I had the Signature French toast and someone else in my party had the banana and chocolate stuffed french toast. My french toast was a little dry and... More

This was not the first time we have eaten at More Perreca's. It is the first time I felt that the waitstaff and cook could care if they were serving decent entrees or that there were customers were in the room or not.The best part of the meal was the terrific Perreca's Italian bread. The rest of the meals served... More

Our most recent visit was during restaurant week, despite the very busy night the food was delicious, the service excellent and friendly.

Super friendly and attentive wait staff. The meatballs were great, the bread? Well I could eat a whole loaf. Also excellent cannoli. The only two improvements I would make are better wine glasses and temperature. It was pretty chilly in there last night. Overall two thumbs up folks!

I love this restaurant, and can't believe I haven't reviewed it before. This is a casual restaurant that has great food. The menu has somethings that are on at all times, but changes with the seasons. I have come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have always enjoyed my meal. My most recent visit was during Schenectady Restaurant Week,... More

First you should know that this is the restaurant to the left of the actual storefront for Perreca's Breads, which makes the best bread I've ever had on this or any other continent or country (even France!!). I don't know how or what they do, but this old school 100+ year-old family business is a must-visit stop for any visitor.... More

We stopped here for lunch recently after a year's absence and it's still great. Authentic Italian food in a bustling cafe/bistro atmosphere. It would also be a god spot to have coffee and pastry or to share a bottle of wine. We had the fish soup followed by a shared order of tomato pie. Both were excellent and our server,... More
