Sleek and modern with one foot firmly in the Old World is the feeling at Perbacco. The restaurant boasts a brick wall original to the historic 1913 Hind building, with other touches such as a bar top and floor tiles made from white Carrara marble. With 16 seats at the bar and 7 more intimate tables, Perbacco creates an atmosphere for a glass of wine or a light bite. Perbacco also features 2 dining rooms, one on the main floor and a smaller one on the Mezzanine, which has the added allure of serving as "theater", with windows to watch all the action in the kitchen below. Chef Staffan Terje strives to cook the finest food reflecting the Italian regions of Piemonte and Liguria. Handcrafted, house-made salumi, prosciutto and other charcuterie are not to be missed. Seasonal pastas, a tradition in Piemonte, range from the traditional ravioli to the more exotic agnolotti. Main courses feature dishes such as stuffed quail breast, a selection of seafood dishes, and vegetarian options.

    I have never submitted a restaurant review, but the experience we had at Perbacco warrants this exception. Last we’d gone was for our 15th anniversary, 15 years ago, and we remembered that the food was tremendous, the atmosphere beautiful. Those elements are just as true today, and certainly valuable, of course. The pansotti I had, for instance, was melt-in-your mouth sumptuous. But even more notable was the impeccable service. The warmth of the staff, all the way up to the proprietor himself, made our of our 30th anniversary celebration utterly priceless—and convinced us to make it a point to came back much sooner the next time.

    Perbacco is always a perfect choice for exceptional Italian food. The food is delicious, the service is attentive without being cloying, and each dish was beautifully presented.

    Absolutely delicious food, delightful staff, attractive decor. Burrata salad and pastas to die for! The Sommelier knocked himself out to find a white wine I loved! The Maitre D was tastefully attentive and our main waiter was charming.

    Service was slow and non of the quality I would expect at this price point. The duck was also subpar - other dishes were good but not exceptional.

    We came here for a birthday lunch. We really enjoyed our pasta dishes, and the flavorful and refreshing mocktails. The restaurant is comfortable yet luxurious. The service was spectacular.
