Description: Jerlando's Ristorante & Pizza Co. Is located in the center of downtown Watkins Glen at the corner of 4th and Franklin St.. We are walking distance from many Hotels, Motels, B&B's and many area attractions including the State Park Gorge, Seneca Lake and several great shops. We have both Italian and American selections including a variety of Pasta, Steaks, Seafood, Poultry, Sandwiches, Veal, Salads, Pizza, Wings, and Burgers. We offer a full service bar for a quick drink with friends or to enjoy a meal watching a ball game. Our specialty is family dining. We also enjoy serving business clientele and being part of special events like anniversaries and rehearsal dinners. Our goal is to serve a quality meal that is affordable, and sure to satisfy. All of our entree's are prepared to order. Our bread is purchased daily from local bakeries in Watkins Glen and Montour falls. Our pizza is made from freshly prepared dough. We use whole milk mozzarella from Upstate New York farms. We feature many regional and domestic wines including Lakewood, Hazlitt, Glenora, Rock Stream, Fox Run and more. We have a variety of import/domestic bottle beers and keep a few regional craft beers on tap. Our entree price range is $7.99 -$23.99. In addition to our dining room, if your on the go, we have a very popular "take-out" located at the rear of our building. In the summer months we are open from 11am - 10pm seven days a weak. After Labor our hours are 11am - 9pm. We are open year round.

“Nice winter lunch spot”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Watkins Glen is a real summer place, and finding a good restaurant at which to meet friends half-way between Cayuga and Keuka lakes is easy in the summer, but difficult in the winter. Thanks to recommendations of friends and TripAdvisor, we found Jerlando's. A fun Italian-American pizzeria and restaurant, with excellent service and very tasty food. Three of us enjoyed our quarter pound burgers with excellent fries; the fourth had the chicken sandwich, done exactly to her specifications. The server went out of her way to make sure we were all happy, and no one in the place minded that we lingered over drinks, lunch, and coffee for more than two hours. We'll be back!

“Glad we went!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful Italian food was just what we wanted and just what we got after a day on the wine and beer trail! Highly recommend the bread appetizer, it was to die for. Everyone was happy with various "trio" choices we selected. Cold beer topped it off. Thank you also for the friendly and attentive service!

“Great Food”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Gotta have the garlic knots. They rock. Eat in the front or take out the back. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it. We go here at least once when we come back home to Watkins Glen each year.

I went there for lunch yesterday and everything was perfect! The food was amazing, it's a very relaxing environment, and the staff was excellent, especially my server Tina. :)
