Many years ago, there was a dinor that opened in Lawrence Park, owned and operated by George Gourlias. The dinor was a place you could go with friends and family and enjoy some tasty food, prepared with pride and served with a smile. Here we are in the fall of 2015 and having recently returned to Erie, I find that... More

Went to Bistro 26 last night for dinner. My husband, son and I shared a crab cake appetizer which was very good. My choice for dinner was Veal Marsala which was to die for! Shared a slice of chocolate peanut butter pie for dessert-scrumptious!! The service is also excellent.

It is located in West Millcreek, only about 10 minutes from downtown Erie. The lunch menu includes a range of sandwiches, panini, burgers, wraps, salads (most of which are made with either... More
