Apizz or Perilla?

I have heard good things about both and I have made a reservation at both. Which one should I keep?

    i wouldnt be interested in apizz until october/november.

    perilla is a standout year round.

      i'd agree with sam....overall, i prefer apizz, but it is a cold weather place. dark, with a hearth and food that reflects that. perilla is more flexible...maybe better bet right now.

      You cant go wrong with either. I agree with Steph25, apizz is a warm, dark hearty menu and atmosphere. Perilla is a little lighter

        Both are very good, so I think it depends on what you are in the mood for. Apizz is Italian with hearty food and a big wood-burning oven. Perilla has lighter food and a lighter atmosphere. If it were me, I'd pick Apizz if I wanted a filling meal on a cooler day and Perilla for something lighter on a warm evening.
