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.

“Good pizza outside NYC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We tried this Italian restaurant on a weekday night. It seemed busy and many people appeared to be locals as opposed to tourists. We were in the mood for pizza but hoped it would be at least edible as we come from Brooklyn and Queens and have many great pizzerias in these areas. Boy, we were pleasantly surprised at how good there basic pizza pie turned out to be! Free refills on drinks and good service would be appreciated in any area of New York State.

“Better Than Expected!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I ate at Jerlando's this past Saturday and were very pleased with the food. We called earlier that day to reserve a table and were told not necessary. When we got there we saw people waiting outside, so went in and were told the wait was 10 minutes...we were seated within 5! Service was prompt and wait staff very friendly. For appetizer we shared buffalo calamari, tasty with a kick due to the banana peppers. Salads were fine, just the right size and came with garlic bread. I ordered the Shrimp al la Veneziana, fresh garlic, tomatoes, basil and shrimp in a light cream sauce served over pasta....delicious and a nice portion, couldn't finish. My husband had the Veal Parm with a side of pasta, nice classic and he was pleased with it. He had cappuccino, me black coffee and we shared the chocolate lava cake which was the best we had! Good prices, tasty food, and full bar too. Definitely recommend.

“Do try the French fries”

This is how French fries should be !
Rest of the food was decent too . Good staff. Decently priced. Wait time is long and they do not take reservation for weekends .
