On a rainy night I took advantage of their online ordering and delivery. My steak sandwich was great and the overall cost reasonable. Delivery was on time.

Met friends for lunch in Rochester, I live an hour away from there. I had my two grandchildren with me as well (6 and 9 yr). I ordered chicken fingers and french fries (one order) which consisted of 3 large pieces of chicken and a huge amount of french fries. We split the meal and still had leftovers. With drinks... More

I was back in town this weekend and my friends and I were trying to think of a place to meet up for lunch - and we thought of Pellegrino's. What a classic! Classic subs to get - actually - my only recommendations are the hot subs. The cold subs are mediocre, but the hot subs are good. I would... More

We thought we'd try something new for lunch since two people with me work nearby and had always wanted to try Pellegrino's. Free, off-street, shared parking was convenient and plenty of clean tables of various styles (booth, barstool/high tables, etc). My first impression was its cleanliness. I was impressed no further. The three of us ordered one, a wrap, two,... More

This is a better than average, burger, subs grinder place. Counter service. Located right near the University of Rochester and the U of R Medical Center and 3 minutes from Downtown, Pelligrino's serves a great hot or cold sandwich! Their steak sandwiches are among the best in Rochester. They bake their own bread and everything is always fresh. There is... More

Stopped in with my daughter for a quick lunch. Ordered a 7" Meateaters sub which had the perfectly cooked roast beef piled high, and a Chicken Caesar Wrap. Both had exceptional taste and wonderfully sauced to enhance the flavor. We split an order of fries. Perhaps one of the best french fries I've had. Crisp exterior and smooth creamy interior....

Subs are better then most chain sub places. If you are passing by well worth a visit. Subs are made fresh and there are many possibilities.

Of course it was crowded - and of course the takeout counter was swamped. The burgers and sandwiches here are simply amazing. It's so refreshing to see a staff who cares about the quality of their food, takes pride in their service and is able to interact effortlessly with a diverse group of customers. Our family enjoyed an unexpectedly pleasant... More

Fresh bread and a great deli atmosphere. One of my favorite stops in Rochester. Everything is made fresh and the menu has many choices. Highly recommend when in the area.

They have the best subs in the area. And I love their homemade potato chips. Pellegrino's is on Mt Hope Ave across from the cemetery and a very short walk to shopping at the new College Town.
