I had high expectations of the food due to what I have heard and this place being in "Little Italy". The meatballs were pretty good, but the sauce was not that great. It may just be a matter of taste. It was a plentiful portion (good for the price). The marinara has a seasoning that no one in our party... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and waited for 10 minutes for someone to take our order but that never happened. Two waitresses walked by, one twice, without cleaning the table or offering a menu or acknowledging us at all. We had been there at least 12 minutes. The final insult occurred when people who had just arrive were given... More

Went here on a Sunday before a show at Proctors. Place was absolutely slammed, but a friendly manager took our name and said 30 minutes so we went next door to another restaurant that has a formal bar and had a drink and came back. This place is not fancy, more of like a casual cafe with some booths and... More

This was our first time at this restaurant. More Perreca's is an authentic Italian restaurant. It has a cozy feel and is spotless. Our meal began with house salads: baby field greens, lettuce, tomato, onions, sliced olives with homemade dressing. They tasted as if they came straight from the garden! Next, our order of fried calamari arrived. It was the... More

Glad we made reservations for a Sunday morning......this place was hopping! Busy, crowded, and fun! Server was attentive, efficient, and friendly. Menu was great.....lunch stuff, and great breakfast choices! Several different frittatas (I had an asparagus and artichoke frittata....yum!), french toast, and pancakes. My kids each had A Reason To Live....french toast, chocolate drizzled bacon, grilled bananas, and a fried... More

Small restaurant but excellent food and service. Was our first visit and we will definitely be back. We had the shrimp verde appetizer, eggplant parm and linguine w/red clam sauce - all were delicious! Our server was Jeremy who was attentive and friendly. Thanks to Chris for the complimentary cupcakes to take home to celebrate our anniversary.

More Perreca's has a Wonderful Prix fixed dinners Sunday - Thursdays at the Restaurant. This restaurant is an extension of their famous Perreca's Bakery. Best bread in town, and by far the best Italian meals I've had in a long time, especially their Lobster/Shrimp Mac & Cheese... a must order!
