Any recent Perbacco experiences?

Considering dinner in the Union Square/FiDi area and didn't see anything recent about Perbacco. Wondering if it's maintaining?

  1. I was there a month or two ago and everything was good. What I still remember is the grilled squid appetizer. It was just so good! What I didn't like was sitting in the back area with low ceilings. It felt really cramped. Not a huge deal, but if it can be helped don't sit there.

    My husband is going next week so if he says it's gone significantly up or down hill I'll report back.

      Yum! So I got to taste some leftovers last night, and Perbacco is definitely still worth a visit. My husband brought back half a stuffed quail in truffle sauce. The squail and stuffing were tasty, well done, well seasoned, but just that.

      The sauce? !!!! If I could have a bowl of pasta in that sauce I would be set. I couldn't tell exactly what was in it, but it was a perfect melding of all the flavors you want in a rich sauce: meat, onion, mushrooms, truffles, herbs, and some kind of wine. There were also pieces of sweet corn and mushrooms in it. What a great late night snack!

      Husband noted that the tripe was mediocre, but his co-worker's watermelon salad looked good.

      1. I was there 2 weeks ago and it was as good as ever.

        2. I was there last month for the first time, so I don't know if it's gone uphill or down, but I had a good meal. The appetizers were the highlight, and one of my tablemate's gnocchi was great -- I didn't love my pasta, though.

          1. Several recent mentions have been positive.
            Sorry have a disagreement with the place function.
