I have eaten at Perreca's (More Perreca) sporadically over several years while in Schenectady; most recently in July. It is a very laid back atmosphere and offers a relatively small menu of Italian specialities. Unfortunately dishes tend to be bathed in gravies and dressings and...More

We went for lunch; the food was excellent (especially the bread from their bakery); the service was great. Enjoyed it so much we went back the next day for breakfast - we were not disappointed.

We went for brunch on a Sunday and we're very pleased with the meal, selection, friendliness of the staff, and the casual atmosphere. I wish I will have time to go back for dinner as you can tell the quality.

Certainly not a regular eating place. Pretty famous locally for good Italian bread and good soup. Not really meant to eat in but rather to go. A couple of other items but the bread is the big draw.

This has always been one of my favorite jaunts when in Schenectady so on a recent trip we stopped in for lunch. The place was very busy, but service was good (as usual). I ordered the pepper and eggs sandwich served on their famous bread....More
