Stumbled into Perri’s Pizza and Cafe for lunch today. The wife had some shoes to pick up at Zeigler’s Shoe Repair in Casady Square. Perri’s was a couple doors down.
It’s in the space previously occupied by Jimmy’s Deli, which was always a cut above, under a nondescript banner. When I walked in the door and saw the available fare, I knew it was going to be serious. The pizza, sold by the slice as well as whole pies, looked perfect. The meatball were bathing in a homemade ragu in neat rows, topped with fresh parsley. Today’s special, eggplant parmesan, looked like it had just been made.
I got the meatball sandwich, Lori the eggplant.
Wow. Everything was handmade and perfect.
And then there’s the breadsticks. I’ve already sent one friend over and told him to order at least 5 of these incredible delights.
They also serve philly cheesesteaks, which is next on my list.
Perri’s is on the western tip of Casady Square on Britton, just across from Arby’s.
While Falcone’s Pizza and Deli has captured the local imagination with it’s New York style and owner Danny Falcone’s authentic personality, Perri’s seems to have been making its own bread and testing sauce until it was perfected.
