Pallucci Italian Restaurant is some of the best food in Leaside.
Love this place - one of the best pizzas in town - very friendly staff
My review is not just for the restaurant, but for an entire experience that my wife and I had when we decided to have the reception for our wedding at Pallucci.
First The Restaurant
Food is excellent, creative, and fun at Pallucci. While the wine selection is small, it's hand picked by an in-house Sommelier. Pallucci's service is outstanding and the atmosphere is both aesthetically pleasing and inviting.
My wife raved about the food, the wine and the service. She is demanding, so this speaks volumes!
Second The Reception
This is the real reason I'm writing this review because of the absolutely amazing experience that my wife and I had using the private dining room at Pallucci as a reception for our wedding. I can't speak highly enough about how smoothly the whole process from start to finish went. Delicious food, beautiful modern settings, and fantastic service were all delivered as promised. But the highlight for me was working with owner Chef Neil Siomra. His impeccable professionalism from the first meeting to the event itself was stellar. Neil is not just an amazing chef, but an extremely congenial person. Both he, and his lovely wife and co-owner Michelle met with us multiple times long before the wedding, maintained contact with us up until the reception, discussed with us the different options, gave us samples of food and wine, and was incredibly responsive to our desires and needs.
The price was very reasonable considering the all-around excellence.
The entire staff at Pallucci was friendly, helpful, and unpretentious. If you have any sort of event that you would like to plan for 30-50 people, this venue is ideal. The food was just as outstanding for 50 people as it was during our other experience at Pallucci.
