The bread is fantastic, daily ready made sandwiches are great. This place is an old school Italian deli, nothing fancy here. I have not been to the restaurant next door hope theses soon.

We were delighted to find Perreca's open on the Monday after New Year's when other Schenectady restaurants were not, but the menu choices we made from soup to sandwiches were all a little too salty to us. The menu range was good and the service helpful. However, no other baker can beat their fabulous bread!

Walking into this bakery is like stepping back in time, and the bread is something out of the best food dream you've ever had. It's hard-crusted and with a nutty flavor on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. There's also Italian specialty deli meats and cheeses, as well as a handful of pastries and cupcakes to choose... More

We were going to dinner at Cornell's restaurant (incredible Italian food) next door and smelled this incredible smell. When we went into the bakery it was like a step back in time. They have been making the same bread since 1914 and it is DELICIOUS! Don't go to Schenectady without stopping in!

Wonderful food and baked goods, reasonably priced. We go to the restaurant for delicious breakfasts on special occasions. We hope to get there for dinner soon. The restaurant is cosy and has a very comfortable atmosphere. Their bakery has some of the best bread available locally and a selection of other tasty treats. A local landmark, the ovens at Perreca's... More
