Restaurant inspections, Pero’s Pizza and Pasta

Pero’s Pizza and Pasta Restaurant in Atlanta, which has been serving patrons in the Buckhead community and other metro Atlanta areas since 1969, recently suffered a drop on its food safety inspection exam, according to the report.

The Italian eatery, located at 3521 Northside Parkway NW, scored a 71 (C) after making a 77 (C) during a follow-up inspection in February 2010, according to reports. The routine result that February was a 63 (U), suffered from all new violations.

Charles Pero, manager and owner, said all of this year’s infractions have been corrected. He also noted that the restaurant takes food safety seriously – especially after serving customers for 43 years.

“All employees have been retrained” to maintain high-level standards, he said.

The infractions included inadequate storage of foods in the refrigerator, cluttered or blocked hand-sinks, improper posting of its food-safety inspection report and not posting a current food-service permit, the report showed.

The inspector noted that the restaurant has to “obtain an updated permit within 24 hours.” Pero’s was also advised that wiping cloths must be stored within the sanitizer solution bucket.

Of the complete list of citations, an issue with substandard date-marking of food items was noted as a repeat violation, which costs restaurants double-point deductions.

Pero said employees now understand safety procedures – including this one that falls under the four-point range (eight when doubled) – can’t be overlooked.

He said he looks forward to the follow-up inspection.
