Caffe Perini is a little gem hidden away in South Boston. Chef and owner Saul did everything he could to make our dinner special. There were 7 of us and we had some gluten free and vegetarian orders, so he tailored our orders to fit that. As others have said, this is not fast food. This is more like we... More

This is one of several very good eating places in small South Boston, Virginia. The place is chef-owned and he prepares evening meals for you from scratch. Consequently it takes awhile. As they say, this is not, after all, fast food. Four of us had lunch which is not quite so specialized. The pizza with cheese and salmon was very... More

A must-visit restaurant for a unique, personal experience. Homemade Gelato with genuine Italian ingredients. Everything is cooked to order, so wait times may be longer than expected, but is absolutely worth the wait.

My brothers and I took our mother out for lunch and were delighted by the delicious food. Home baked rolls, Boars Head cold cuts, amazing find in South Boston! We come from NY so we are used to great food in Little Italy, and Café Peroni was right up there. Their filled-to-order cannoli were authentic and mouth watering. My brother... More

We went to Peroni at lunch and there were maybe 3 other tables of people, so no very busy. We ordered and it took over 30 minutes for the food to come. I had the chicken philly cheesesteak and it was wonderful. My friend had the chicken sandwich and she said it was great as well. We both got a... More

We were here for lunch. It was okay. From all the other reviews, I was expecting something better. I would need to try it again before making a firm decision. Waitress was very friendly, but not the fastest service, even though it didn't seem busy. I didn't really care for the shoe string chips with my lunch. They looked like... More

The place looked nice so all 4 of us decided to check it out. Went inside, there was one table of 10 people and 2 other tables finishing up their meals. We sat down and waited... for about 5 minutes when another table of 4 came over. Finally the waitress came over and told us that we would have to... More

From start to finish this was one of, it not the best, enjoyable and delicious meals our family has enjoyed. If you like authentic Italian cooking look no further! The table service was wonderful and Saul (Owner/Chef) was most participative in our experience offering suggestions and even allowing input from us on any change or addition to the menu selection...

Aye here one night while in town on business. Completely unexpected. The atmosphere was good. The service was better. The food was amazing. I have never been at a restaurant that's not a high class establishment where the chef actually came to our table and talked about the menu. He was very friendly and very knowledgeable about food. Everything here... More

The service was very good. They served Italian bread (which was excellent), and provided olive oil to dip the bread in. I had pasta, which was cooked perfect, but i found the sauce to be bitter. Was over-priced. The owner was personable and definitely tried.
