Tiny place, inventive menu. The parmesan creme brulee appetizer is a MUST! We had reservations and were seated promptly (right in front of the kitchen - bleh). Other than our table location, everything was great. Staff was friendly and attentive. Good prices for very good quality food. Being that it is a tiny restaurant - it does get loud, and is best for small groups, dates. Not really a kid place/menu.

Tuna carpaccio on a bed of endive. . . .amazing!!!! Seafood Sausage with spicy tomato and chick peas. . . .amazing!!! Wine is delicious, the servers know their stuff. High-quality ingredients abound. I love this place. It is totally worth it.

after reading the reviews I decided to take a stab at it. Went there for a friend's birthday on a Sat. eve. High marks for service which was very attentive and friendly. I ordered the polenta appetizer which was okay-not great. not much flavor in the sauces or the polenta which was a bit disappointing. I ordered a pasta dish that had cheese, cabbage and potato which sounded good from the description, but left me also disappointed. Pasta was gummy and again, the dish lacked umpf in flavor. maybe it was what i ordered. too many other really good restaurants around so this one will not get a 2nd chance from me.

I had read some decent reviews on Perbacco and had been meaning to check it out for some time. I was weary of ordering delivery because the menu didn't look too "delivery-friendly," ie, seemed like the dishes wouldn't travel well. Decided to ignore my apprehension and order a three-course meal consisting of the Spaghetti with garlic/hot peppers, chicken thigh stuffed with foie gras and the chocolate slider. The spaghetti was awesome--delicate, fluffy noodles in an elegant, non-overpowering olive-oil based sauce. However, the chicken was rubbery and was drenched in water running off the spinach side dish. The "chocolate slider" was a mess. What makes this all so unacceptable is the entire meal was a steep $60 plus tip. I'm not one to complain about cost--after all, I was well aware of the menu prices. But I will comment on value. I'll reserve final judgement until I visit Perbacco in person. However, I'd recommend staying far away from wasting your time and money on delivery.

If you want a slightly different take on real Italy - this is it. It is a mixture of authentic Italy (not Italian-American) and modern. Just try the "onion jelly" in the Emilian app.

I walked into the restaurant after watching Sunday football. The staff was rude from the begining, which is odd for an empty restaurant on a Sunday night if they want business at all. We ordered food, which was mediocre ( how can you screw up ravioli?) but the worst part was that we were cussed at by the bartender when I asked for a new water glass (mine was dirty) and when I spoke with the manager she defended him. To make it worse the rude bartender came out and admitted he told us to "fuck off". Seriously I'm all about supporting neighborhood establishments, but not like the people at perbacco!
