The ricotta pancakes are very great and the brunch menu is amazing. I went here twice and the pancakes were amazing both times. My friends also liked going here for brunch and enjoyed their sandwiches.

First time at Per Lei
I enjoyed the atmosphere in this smallish Italian bistro but was very disappointed by a tasteless salad..the Branzino was excellent and I would have given a higher rating had it not been for the salad, Also the bread could have been better.

Best Pasta in NYC
Another great meal at Per Lei. My wife had spaghetti and I had the tagliatelle with mushrooms. Fabulous! Then finished it with some great cheesecake.

We had a nice experience with Francesco tonight. A cozy corner booth amid the wall portraits was perfect for us. Our pasta dishes were exxcellent as was the dessert sorbet.

A great discovery from the downtown
My friend and I were in search of a nice dinner outside- we love in Weeat Village and had no idea where to go. Per Lei hit the spot. Great ambience- a little loud, bu it was rather late and there was a large party next to us. We were greeted warmly by the host who seats us right away. Our waitress was borderline clueless but very sweet. We actually never saw her unless she was asking if we were ok. Our host was our go to guy- he picked out a great wine for us and helped us w food decisions- he was spot on w recommendations. It was an incredible meal and we'll certainly be coming back.

Fine lunch outside
We had a fine lunch in the lovely outdoor seating area. Service excellent. Unfortunately, the noise level was high from 2nd Ave traffic and subway construction. They can't help that.

Fantastic - a true 10!
Went to Nello and to Per Lei both on the same day. Per Lei was by far the better of the two. Less pretentious, less pushy, more warm, more welcoming. And half the price. Forget Nello. Got to Per Lei.

Sunday brunch place
Went on a beautiful Summers day. Bottle of wine perfectly chilled. I had eggs Benedict with lobster. My friend had eggs with crab and avocado. We enjoyed our meal. Breeze was nice. Service was professional and friendly.
Lively way to spend an afternoon.

I have a palate that is accustomed to well-seasoned good food that is prepared with love. I personally found my dish to be all of that and thensome. This is my second time to Per Lei and I will keep coming back. Really well done Italian food prepared with great flavor and superb service.

Highly recommend! The gluten free pasta is scrumptious...had to verify it was gluten free with the chef because it was so delicious and tasted like regular pasta. Chicken Milanese was fantastic and very fresh. Very friendly and attentive wait staff. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will certainly return and will definitely recommend to friends. Don't let the Second Ave construction stop you from eating at Per Lei!

Nice quality Italian spot
Friendly service, good quality food. They have wine special on Mondays and Tuesdays for 1/2 off any bottle priced $50 or more.

Wonderful, attentive "Per Lei"
Words cannot describe how wonderful the wine, the food and the music is as well as the wonderful servers. My friend and I were able to talk and never wanted for anything. The food was delectable.

Enjoy the little outdoor space. Service friendly and prompt. Food tasty. Been there several times and will keep going back.

The food was very tasty; it is a cool place, very cool decorated; excellent service. I had a late dinner I don't know if that affected that it was a little bit empty. But definitely delicious food and very chic-romantic.

Can't wait for the 2nd avenue
Can't wait for the 2nd avenue construction to be over so the outside space will have a prettier view.

Westchester drive in
First time here, Loved Baronda, so I wanted to give this a try.
The food &, service were perfect. The lighting and music make the place complete. The place has a vibe.
THIS PLACE IS ON TIME!!

Nice inside and out
Nice intimate space like dining in a private event. Lights so dim that some of us had hard time reading the menu. Enjoyed the chocolate papardelle duck ragu and my husband liked his choice of veal ravioli. To my disappointment, the rucola salad had only traces of gorgongola cheese and no pistachios, as was described in the menu.

Monday night pleasure
It was a quiet monday efening dinner but per lei hosted us graciously and the food was very good.

A pretty place. The music was a little loud a first, but seemed toned down later. I had a pasta dish with mussels which was delicious and my husband had the striped bass. Service was good.

Loved the Half-Price Wine Night!
I had the Osso Bucco and ordered several sides of vegetables. Everything was excellent. My wife and I splurged on a very high-end bottle of wine since all wines over $50 are 50% off on Monday and Tuesday nights. Great experience!
