What people are saying
- Maureen B. Fant (2014) is “underwhelmed” by Perilli and would rather go to Checchino, but “make no mistake, it’s not half bad, and the carbonara is very, very good, and it has the sort of old-Rome atmosphere that is becoming ever more rare.”
- Katie Parla (2013) does not include Perilli among her favorite Trattorias in Rome, dishing in the comments section that “Perilli is not good. Pass for sure. I have never had problems with the service but the food is just awful.”
- Rachel Eats (2012) says that “Perilli does indeed feel a little like being in a Fellini Film, cavernous, exciting, perennially packed, with its cummerbunded waiters, starched white cloths, ancient and incessant kitchen buzzer, frosted windows and slightly surreal wall murals.”
- The Guardian (2012) recommends this for rigatoni alla carbonara and abbacchio or Roman spring lamb which are “a bit pricey but pitch-perfect.”
- Frank Bruni (2008) says “It’s a very good restaurant, but even more than that it’s a very, very representative restaurant, where you’ll find a classic Roman menu and dozens of Romans themselves eating.”
- Travel + Leisure recommends that you “Enjoy Perilli’s mural-lined walls and high ceilings while dining on favorites like their famous sugo all’amatriciana (pasta with dried pig’s cheek, Pecorino, and tomato sauce), carbonara, Roman artichokes, and the house specialty, the coda alla vaccinara (Roman oxtail stew).”
