My wife and her parents were passing through the city and we decided to park nearby and found this Italian place and said why not? What a great decision! All the menu items that came out were filling and delicious. And we even got to see one of the famous 1/2 lb cupcakes. Must try for dinner if the brunch... More

We had an after Christmas dinner here with friends we hadn't seen in a long time and not only was the food outstanding, but the service staff treated us like we were VIPs. The eggplant rollatini appetizer was excellent, and so was the baked goat cheese. Scallops in my entree were cooked just right and very flavorful. The marinara sauce... More

We love everything about this place. We've been very lucky to get in on Friday afternoons just before the dinner rush without reservations. The place is small but you probably wont feel as crammed in as some other small dining rooms and as a bonus, you can see the food prep from everywhere. The food has never been less than... More

Here for a late breakfast with a group of 8. Wonderful food, atmosphere, and service. Every dish was huge, delicious, and enjoyed by our party. The red velvet pancakes and "eggs in purgatory" were some of our group's favorite items on the menu. Perreca's is on my MUST list every trip to Schenectady.

I've been to More Pereccas a number of times; most recently Nov 2016. It's the people who make this one of my favorite restaurants. Everyone is always so friendly and entertaining, it's like going to your favorite Aunt's house for comfort food and fun. The food and coffee are predictably good with some very nice daily specials and I think... More

I recently moved back to Schenectady after being away for a decade and was pleasantly surprised by my favorite bakery now in the restaurant business. A friend and I decided to go for a late lunch, mid-week (wednesday). I arrived first and was greeted promptly and pleasantly. A young man offered to seat me and bring me a drink. Once... More

Was here for brunch, a LONG wait since it was family weekend at Union College and we didn't have a reservation. Food was OK, portions huge (which seems to be how "good" is defined in these parts), service was good. An OK place to go if you're here, but not to make a detour for. Coffee was meh. Would like...

This restaurant has a nice space, nice atmosphere, good prices on quality wine but with the food they seem to have taken the easy way out piling on lots of calories with oil and buttter..They could use a refurbishing in the kitchen.

This was our 2nd family visit to enjoy the fresh, hearty, well prepared dishes. Can get crowded but worth the wait! Breads and pastries are to die for. Good value. Everyone left full and happy!

Kind of a disappointment. The original Perreca's is a great place, but the portions at More Perreca's are a bit skimpy, and also inconsistent.
