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.

Had a great first visit. Server Colin took care of us without pushing the pace or being overly attentive and made thoughtful suggestions as to dishes to order and wine to pair. Will return for more.

Standouts:
-Duck breast
-Branzino
-Octopus
-The bread service that helped wipe up the sauce at the bottom of every dish

Great experience, however, our waiter was a little pushy to get our order in. Don't like to be rushed while having drinks and in conversation.

Amazing and knowledgeable service (thank you Annalise!). Perbacco is a great example of a what a restaurant should be, service that connects, but does not overwhelm.

Great time at Perbacco! The staff was incredibly helpful (even let me charge my phone and take a phone call in their basement hall away from the noise!!). It’s a great place for a date at the bar or a girl’s night. I was there for a business lunch and it was pretty hard to hear in the alcove. I would definitely recommend sitting in a boot at the front or at the bar. Thanks Perbacco!

PERBACCO is slipping. I’ve been a longtime customer and had some great meals here in the past. The last three visits, the food has been a disappointment. On this visit, the pappardelle with ragu was virtually tasteless. I will have to find another go-to place for lunch.
