Consistently good food and freebies offered after (10, I think) check-ins. They have an excellent weeknight early bird special, although in my experience if you don't know about it, your server won't tell you. Look for it on the back page of the menu.

I have been meaning to eat here for a long time because I've heard only good things about it. I decided to come when I heard they had a Muffaletta on the menu. I used to live in New Orleans and I love those things. Imagine my disappointment. Don't get me wrong, it was a very tasty sandwich, but Muffaletta,... More

Took the family here after driving past for a year. Table for five seemed to blow their mind (even though we made a reservation). So, we were seated at a small table for four with a chair pushed in at the end. Made for a crowded table, and one of us was constantly exposed to passing trays of food overhead.... More

I come here regularly for the eggs benedict, which is amazing. The flavor of the hollendaise (although light in quantity,we always ask for extra) is exceptional. Buttery,and lemony without being bland . The coffee in the past has been pretty good,but lately is not quite as good. Not quite strong and dark enough for me. Service is always great, and... More

We often go here for the early dinner specials. You get salad, main course and dessert for an extremely reasonable price. We especially like the Eggplant Parmigiana. The wine selections by the glass are also priced well. The waitstaff is always friendly and we never feel rushed.

My wife and I dined here one early evening. It fills up quickly so we went in right around 5 p.m. They have specials before six. Salad, and pasta were very good with large portions. A good go to place for decent food at a decent price.

There were 6 of us, the wait staff took their time. The food arrived cold, and seemed like it was microwaved frozen. The wine was terrible. We asked for better food and wine, and were told this was it.

We decided upon Pellegrino's thanks in part to its outstanding reviews. We were told it would be a 15-20 minute wait, yet, without a bar, we ended up sipping on beverages in the waiting area. Upon being seated we waited an unacceptable amount of time to place our orders and receive the complimentary bread and our salads. Fast forward another... More

Really enjoyed our meal. Pesto linguine Primavera with shrimp was delicious. My husband's steak was great. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Delicious food, attentive service, reasonable prices, fresh facilities, authentic decor, outside dining available - what more could one possibly ask for this side of Italy! The eggplant parmesan is a must along with their dinner rolls. Oh, my!!!
