We went to Grappa again for our anniversary. I must say, each time we go, we are so glad we have decided on it. The food is absolutely delish, the price is a little high but the food is worth it. The atmosphere is lovely, romantic, or not, whatever you want. They are totally accomodating. And if you sign up,... More

Don't let storefront location worry you. This restaurant is an elegant oasis. The wait staff were very accomodating. The menu was a delicious mix of italian standards and interesting specials. Lovely dining room and very popular bar. The bathrooms were even elegantly appointed. The whole experience was such a treat after spending the day looking at colleges.

We chose this restaurant without recommendation on a recent trip to Albany, NY. As such we had no expectation going in. The restaurant had a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere. The service was friendly if not completely professional given the prices. The food was good, but rather expensive. I probably would return to this restaurant as I now know what to... More

Grappa's 72 helped my family out of a serious bind! We had a large anniversary party planned at another local restaurant. That restaurant lost power an hour before 32 of us were scheduled to show up. We called Grappa's and they pulled off an amazing feat for us. They put together a wonderful Prix Fixe menu for the group, and... More

From the moment we walked in until we left everything about this restaurant was excellent, food, service, presentation. Bread was crispy, a rarity in Albany. Portions were ample. Food was served hot. Everything made to order. We are from NYC and this restaurant would be a stand out here. Prices very reasonable for quality. Definitely will go back when back... More

I have dined here 10 times or so and have never been disappointed. The staff is well trained, the owner welcoming and warm. Food and ambiance fantastic. A terrific experience from beginning to end. Can't say enough. Just. Great place.

We had a youth wrestling trip to Albany and were told we'd have a great meal and a great time at Grappa '72, and they were spot on. We were underdressed for a such a nice place, but they were able to hide us in the back a little with a set up for twenty five. The service was outstanding... More

Highly recommend this intimate Italian restaurant . The tapenade was very good and the bread was amazing. The antipasto was fresh and the balsamic dressing was a nice, mild addition. Both of the veal dishes were served with mashed potatoes and fresh carrots. The veal medallions were a generous portion for lunch. We were tempted by the dessert menu and... More
