The service here has always been sub par (East Rochester location.) It used to be that the subs were good and reasonably priced and that combined with the drive through window used to make up for the poor service. They have recently gotten rid of menu items that were favorites along with the entire Children's menu. It is now not so family friendly. They closed the drive up window making it not as convenient. The quality of the subs has plummited since these changes. The food is greasy and bland. My order tonight took 35 minutes and was cold by the time I got it. I got no apologies and the workers act as if you being there is causing them nothing but trouble. Then when I got home my sub was not as I ordered it along with being cold. At one time we went here a few times a month for family lunch. I will not be returning.

Pellegrino's is exactly what anybody would want from an Italian restaurant in NYC. Its neighborhood and atmosphere is perfect, the food terrific and the service attentive. If you're going to NY and is looking for a place that has the ambiance that is depicted in a Hollywood movie with the cuisine of the Cooking Channel, this is the place to go.

My wife & I went last night. Our waiter was the manager. He was very nice, but not always very attentive. He did not tell us the specials which I heard him tell the next customers seated near us. He forgot the zuchini I ordered. What we did get was very good. The restaurant was not that busy so the ambiance was very nice. The other wait staff was very attentive and helpful. I would go back again.

Our extended family group of eight chose Pellegrino's after touring lower Manhattan all day on Christmas Eve. We loved Chinatown but decided on Italian for dinner because it met our many requirements - toddlers to grandparents, carnivores to vegetarians. It was mid-afternoon and everyone was starving. We walked in off the street. We loved the place. They were able to seat us immediately, and the service was gracious, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was warm, the menu extensive and appetizing, the food very good and we could be as boisterous as we pleased. Everyone else seemed to be enjoying themselves, as well. I can't speak for New Yorkers, but for these strangers to the city, Pellegrino's provided us with exactly what we needed at the moment we needed it - a place for all eight of us to sit down together and eat a festive, holiday meal while talking over the events of the day and having a good time doing it.

We stumbled into pellegrino's, looking for a good lunch. Fried calamari was delicious, lasagna and pollo pail lard with broccoli was out of this world.

risotto was awesome, pasta tasty if you like the red sauce with cream. meat was very generous portions and well cooked, presentation was a bit odd. service great, friendly an fun place. pretty good price decent wine selection.

I love the pasta here, and I love the fact that you can enjoy it without being hassled by servers every 10 minutes, while your mouth is full (seriously, what is it with waiters who do that?). I had an incredible lobster bisque here once, that I haven't found on the menu since, with big chunks of lobster meat and some kind of twisted, cheesy bread. Out of this world. And they're so nice about accomodating non-meat eaters by ommitting prosciutto and various meat bits from their pastas and sauces (which are really so good, they don't need further embellishment). I like a lot of restaurants, throughout NYC, CT, and Westchester, and have only taken the time to review a tiny handful. That says something.
