“Authentic and sophisticated Italian experience”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

What an amazing restaurant ! The pasta is superb not to mention the authentic Italian service and ambiance. If you think Italian food is all about pasta and pizza, don't bother. Perbacco is far too good for you !!

“Exceptional Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

We dined on Christmas Eve at Perbacco and it was a wonderful evening. We had an 8:30 reservation and we enjoyed our meal over 2+ hours. service was attentive, but we were never hurried. We brought our own bottle of 2005 Neal cabernet sauvignon and started off with a bottle of the house prosecco so there was no corkage fee. The prosecco was very crisp and refreshing and was ideal with our grilled octopus and salumi plate appetizers. I had the Liberty duck breast, medium rare, as suggested by our waiter. It was the best duck meal I have ever tasted. Succulent but not too rich. My wife had the herb crusted short rib which was melt in your mouth tender. Our son had the roasted rabbit leg which was also delicious. I am not sure we could decide which of the three dishes was the best they were all so good.

For dessert, I had the orange blossom honey panna cotta. My wife had the toffee cake and our son had the wild harvested chocolate custard. Paired with cappuccinos they capped off an amazing meal at Perbacco.

“Underwhelming Lunch”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

We had high expectations based on the reviews and words of mouth. The dishes we had were bland, sparse and pricey which is usually not a good combination. The service was however attentive and we got a generous pour from the bar.
