Such good Italian food. Waitress was very accommodating when we asked to be moved to a quieter table, away from small children. We had chicken soup, excellent, salad, excellent.
For entrees, strip steak, was wonderful, and chicken Perillo over angel hair pasta, again, excellent.
We would definitely go back. We were not from the area and relied on Trip Advisor.

We were driving Upstate NY and decided to make a pit stop along the NYS Thruway and via Car - Navigation GPS search found what we thought was going to be Armory Grill, sandwich food, hamburgers etc for lunch not Parillo's Armory Grill.

The waitperson was great, she offered to only serve us one entrée to share as we weren't that hungry instead spouse had a Chicken special think Françoise (sp)- Two large pieces of chicken with salad for like $10.95 give or take and I had another chicken dish - Raffael $16.00+.

The food was great and we wound up having left overs for another great meal. Well worth their prices. Nice Local establishment with home style cooking and good service.

Had dinner with a group of friends. Apps were good and recommend fried artichoke and their chicken wings! Had to send entrees back for more heat even though plates were hot food was warm. Once returned they were good! Server seemed overwhelmed as restaurant looked understaffed. Food quantity was abundant and very tasty! Restaurant celebrating 40 years and owners work very hard.Will try again another time. Ambiance is nice with many antiques.

Parillo's is a long-lived institution in Amsterdam, NY. Located in an out-of-the-way industrial area, it takes some doing to find it. But be persistent, because your search will be worth it.

The decor will convince you that you are sitting in your Italian Nona's dining room, with china closets and old china on display. And the food will replicate what Nona might have made or a special occasion, if she had an unlimited supply of first-rate ingredients, fresh seafood, and the talent of a master chef.

If seafood is your thing, you have many choices. The frutta de mer (sp?) dish is a melange of various seafood types, along with fresh veggies and a pasta side. I've never seen anyone finish it in one sitting, it there's always a first time.

Be sure to leave room for dessert (shared, probably) and coffee or tea. It's fun to linger, watch the other diners enjoying their evening, and admire the wait staff's competence. Just make sure to bring your wallet as the prices can be pretty high. But for a special occasion, it's a great choice.
