We stopped by at 5pm on a weekday, but they had sold out of their famous bread! The woman working the bakery was great! She offered us one of the small loaves that they deem "not sellable due to their warped appearance". We got it and it was just as tasty!

Stopped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning while visiting family in the area. The café was bustling, with people constantly coming and leaving. The staff kept everything moving - they were on their toes! We ordered breakfast and lots of coffee - and it was served fresh and fast and the coffee kept coming. The toast was Italian bread,...

They have a very good crust on the white long loaves or round, your choice, small or large. Their small store stocks Italian deli meats, dried pastas, sauces and other Italian delicacies. They have a plain sold by... More

Simply the best Italian bread in Schenectady, NY. Made in the "Little Italy" part of town. Hard crust on the outside and soft inside. Oh so good. You can purchase this on site at the bakery on Jay Street in the downtown area of Schenectady. However most of the local grocery stores carry Perreca's bread. The Jay Street location is... More

I had pizza and salad and my friend had a meatball sandwich . We were pleased with the taste and price and old fashioned cuisine. Also the bakery is next door if you want to take home some great bread without bleach in the flour or chemical preservatives.

I didn't leave enough room in my bags for a whole loaf of bread, so was happy to see the wrapped sandwiches ready to go. Prosciutto and sharp provolone was still great almost 12 hours later! (Just keep it at room temperature)

We had a nice dinner. The atmospere is very casual. Food is good and very friendly staff particularly Robbie, the bus person. I had the calimari marinara which was a good and delicious portion. Some of the other dishes that we ordered and looked very good were: the shrimp scampi and the linguini with clams in a white sauce. Nice... More
