In the mood for Italian food? Come indulge in the best Schenectady has to offer! Perreca’s Bakery & Italian Kitchen serves up authentic Italian meals to satisfy any stomach, Italian or not. The restaurant, originally opened in 1914, was run by the same family for nearly 100 years. Today, it is now run by the couple’s grandchildren who use the same brick oven and cooking methods that their grandparents did.
Food loving fanatics come from all over to taste the magic that is Perreca’s. The fresh ingredients, delicious extra virgin olive oil and fresh garlic reminds all visitors of any Italian Grandma’s kitchen. Serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, the menu offers signature plates that have become fan favorites. Some specialties include Eggs in Purgatory (eggs poached in spicy marinara sauce), Mushroom Bruschetta, Reason To Live (French toast with Nutella), Loaded Italian Fries, and more. The bakery has even expanded into its own café serving certain specialties offered from the regular menu. The restaurant also offers a wine program, featuring selections of local wines as well as wines from California and Italy. Craft and imported beers are also available.
“I get to Perreca’s maybe once every year, but I’m usually craving it the other 364 days each year.”
