A word from Perbacco - NYC
Perbacco serves modern elegant and progressive Italian cuisine in the East Village.

Frank Bruni, of the NY Times, awarded the restaurant 2 stars and wrote that what struck him about Perbacco wasn't "the crush of diners...it was the attention they seemed to pay to their food. It was the particular energy coursing through the dark-wooded, softly lighted room." He also said that Perbacco "has graduated to a whole new level, worthy of its name, which means 'wow.'"Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Order the Parmigiano Reggiano creme brulee appetizer and spread it over bread and the Lasagna Bolognese. They are both just fantastic!"
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "The food was terrific, the service was done with a smile and a sense of playfulness, and did I say, the food was really really good? We will return. The lamb was perfectly cooked, sweet and luscious. Desserts were surprisingly excellent. Very casual place, with good, inexpensive wine selections. And thoughtful about gluten free items."

  • "We all had food that is not in every Italian restaurant. Everyone was happy with their selections."

  • "I first dined at Perbacco five years ago, and was long overdue to return. I remembered the ambiance, and spectacular meal I had, but wondered if it would be as good after all these years. The food was fantastic; it was well made and delicious, with all the right elements of italian cooking in spectacular balance. There are plenty of tasty vegetarian options. Everything was great, and had perfectly paired wines to go with it. Our server was helpful, informative, friendly, and very tactful. He let us have our time with each other, but was welcomingly conversational. We were the last table in the house, (yikes!) but we did not feel rushed out the door at all. I recommend it for any occasion."

  • "Found this restaraunt while staying in the east village a few years ago. It was as amazing as I remembered. It makes my top must of dining in NYC!"

  • "I used to go here all the time for birthdays and special occasions. It had been a few years and decided to go back again with my wife since she had never been. The place did not disappoint! We had a delicious meal and will definitely go back again sooner rather than later."

  • "Went with my Husband for Valentine's day. Making a reservation was a breeze. We were seated immediately. What I like most about the menu is the variety and novelty that you don't find in other Italian restaurants. They also have a great Wine list with affordable pricing. Our server was on top and we definitely enjoyed the experience at Perbacco. I would go back just to try all their dishes!"

  • "Returned here for 2nd year in a row to celebrate my husband's birthday, and was not disappointed. Service was attentive and friendly, with the staff letting us hang out in the warm spot way past after we finished our meal, until we were ready to leave despite a busy Sat night. Great food, very generous, very adventurous, very tasty. Will be back again."

  • "This is a great little hole in the wall Italian restaurant in alphabet city. Great for intimate dates or for larger groups."

  • "The place looked cozy from outside, after we settled in we realized that it was very noisy. On top of the bad acoustics that vibrate the loud voices there was useless loud music. My wife and I had to shout to each other . We went to a different place for a quiet dessert . The First course variety is very impressive, the Prosciutto was very mediocre, for the same amount of money you can get a better one at Eataly"

  • "I love Perbacco - have been several times. It's a go to spot when we have foodie or wine friends and we need to pick the restaurant. We went with friends on New Year's Eve and had a great dinner to start off the night. Food and wine was amazing. Our waiter was funny, friendly and patient with all our questions and concerns. He even handled our complicated cheese/no cheese requests on the salads with a smile on his face."

  • "The food was the big issue, and the reason we'll never go back. The starters were fine. Parmigiano creme brûlée was pretty tasty, although more soupy than custard. Antipasto had fried bread with prosciutto that was sliced way too thick and blocks of parmigiana (no knife provided). Then insalata. Yikes. I ordered what I thought was a fennel salad. We got a massive molded hill of boiled fennel and onions. Warm, flavorless, and mushy. Clincher: a special butternut squash ravioli. It was served with a red sauce with sausage. The sweet ravioli with the rich meat sauce was just a shocking, inedible combination. And on the side? Literally, a cup of whipped cream. It looked like a child sized portion of soft serve ice cream. We just laughed."

  • "Loved the Parmesan Creme Brulee--very yummy. The eggplant fritters, however, did not live up to their hype. Rather cold and tasteless. I ordered the lasagna and it was tasty, but not terribly unusual. It would have benefited from being heated more thoroughly."

  • "The food is terrific and the service is friendly and accomodating. They have great happy hour specials and the decor is inviting. I'll be back!"

  • "I love this place. Every time I'm in NYC my co-workers and I eat here. We've been dozens of times and it is consistently wonderful. I tried their pumpkin ravioli with the spicy sausage this trip and it was fabulous. Rice balls are a must have for appetizers."

  • "Very enjoyable time was had by all in our party of 6. The food was perfectly cooked. Each plate was visibly pleasing and appealing. Everything was delish !!"

  • "Absolutely love this restaurant, this was my second time there and everything about the place is amazing! The first time I went with my boyfriend and it was extremely romantic with the dim lighting of candles, the rustic decor and amazing menu. The second time I brought my parents and they loved the electronic music and all of the dishes were to die for! Definitely do not forget to order the hamburger slider! I will be back!"

  • "We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. We came to the neighborhood for an off, off Broadway theater performance. The food was excellent, service great and best of all...it was quiet. The ability to hear oneself talk is increasingly rare in NYC pared with good food. We will definitely return (from Brooklyn) -- even if we don't have other plans in the area. Highly recommend."

  • "We really enjoyed our experience at this restaurant. The food was super fresh and beautifully prepared. There were several unique and home made choices. THe service was very efficient and the wait staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine. would definitely recommend this spot."

  • "Went with a group of 5 on a Friday night. The place was quiet enough that we could have a conversation and the food and wine were excellent, with many options for different dietary restrictions."

  • "This restaurant was recommended to me and I went there with my husband for our anniversary dinner. The ambience is nice, rustic and romantic but the food was not that good, just fair. Most of our dishes looked and tasted like they had been sitting in the fridge already made for a week and then nuked before serving. The Parmesan creme brûlée was ok but oddly sweet from the brown sugar on top. The eggplant Parmesan croquettes were pretty good but didn't taste fresh. My tagliatelle with lamb ragu was fair and the lasagna was not good, didn't taste fresh. The tiramisu had chocolate syrup on top, not authentic and didn't taste like tiramisu. Maybe other dishes on the menu are good but what we had wasn't great."

  • "went back to this wonderful restaurant 9 years after my original visit. everything was better than expected. the food was delicious, the pasta fresh and inviting, the wine list long, reasonable, cultivated. highly recommend. went on a sunday night when it wasn't busy. during the week it's quite lively."
