The Orecchiette was the best I've ever had. The space is cozy and romantic if not a bit noisy. Highly recommended!!

Great pasta and the entré salad was very good. The steak for two was OK but it took more than 40 minutes to get to us. When it finally came it wasn't really for two. If you get all 4 courses you might leave full.

Came here for my girlfriend's birthday. Made a reservation a few weeks out via Open Table and had to change last minute when my flight into LGA was unexpectedly delayed. They were wholly accommodating to my phone call an hour before my original reservation was scheduled. Seated instantly and were greeted shortly by the owner who ensured we didn't have any questions. Ended up getting the Black Bass Crudo which was amazingly delicate and but complex. Followed it up with Agnolotti split between us as an appetizer and I ended up with the chicken over polenta and mustard greens. The food was top notch. I had no idea what the ambiance would be and was pleasantly surprised to find what looked like a family-style Italian restaurant spiced up with hip-hop tracks playing in the background and young patrons. Definitely a great time in the village.

Perla is a revelation of big NOT miss the 40-day dry aged porterhouse topped with with oxtail glaze...the second best steak I have ever had other than authentic Chianina beef in Florence...its part of the Little Wisco restaurant operators in NYC in my opinion...many of staff from Wisconsin...very refreshing in NYC!

Its a great neighborhood spot (50% of tables for walk-ins) with creative pasta dishes and the menu changes seasonally! Its a real crowd-pleaser. The whole team is very friendly and goes beyond to make the experience of dining at Perla special. My tip is share as many pastas as you can.
