Business and couples filled every table. Food was excellent. Started with the pear and hazelnut salad. Butternut squash pasta and gnocchi with cherry tomatoes was perfectly prepared. Nice wine list too.

Great service but the food was mediocre. We had our group holiday lunch for 15 people. The restaurant did their best to accommodate the large group. The servers were very courteous. Unfortunately, the food tastes plain. Desert was an exception. Nicely made.

We enjoyed yet another great meal at Perbacco. The persimmon & pear salad with Gorgonzola was delicious. The squid ink pasta with seafood was also very good.
