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!

Had the breakfast frittata with veggies and fontinella cheese, it was terrific! The toast is sliced Italian bread, will never eat white bread for breakfast again! Hash browns were a combo of sautéed sweet and white potatoes, a tasty option. A memorable breakfast!

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
