A must try

We were celebrating our son's graduation and after reading the reviews I decided to make a reservation and try it. So glad we did. We were a party of 7 and I was concerned since it was graduation weekend we were going to be rushed but it was just the opposite.They greeted us in a warm fashion, the... read more

Everything was top of the line. Four of us shared the caprese salad and bruschetta apps; it was plenty. The Pollo alla Caprese and Uncle Anthony's Pasta were reportedly delicious (don't remember the 4th meal). My Vitello Mare Monti was perfect - veal, shrimp and mushrooms cooked to perfection in a light tomato sauce with carrots and creamy mashed potatoes.... More

My boyfriend and I love fine dining and love treating ourselves to new places. We tried Grappa tonight and were far from disappointed. The staff was welcoming and charming, the atmosphere was ambient and there was a live pianist and orchestra playing in the lobby which you could hear throughout the restaurant. The topper was the food. I had the... More

This place is amazing! It's quiet and romantic, but not overly pricey. You feel like you are in a really nice place, but the prices of entree's are about $20 a piece, give or take. The salads are additional. I went with a friend of mine and we got some appetizer on special that involved cheese. It was great! The... More

We were in Albany, NY for the NCAA Women's Basketball Regional Finals. We've never been to Albany before so we had no idea where to eat and we weren't exactly dressed up. I checked TripAdvisor on my phone for some recommendations and Grappa 72 came up as one of the top 10 restaurants in Albany. We love Italian food so... More

Even though I’ve heard of this restaurant, we found it by coincidence. We went to return a car rental after a business trip and at the very end of the strip mall sits this unassuming place. Located across from Orange Ford on Central Ave., it shares the mall with Clothes Mentor, Plato’s Closet, Hertz and a laundromat. Yeah, keep going,... More

This is a good find if you are in the Albany area. The service was excellent, the food was very good, and the atmosphere was good. The restaurant is kind of tucked in back of a little plaza and the parking lot looked full. We did not make reservations on a Friday night and were seated within twenty minutes.

I have never been disappointed with a meal at Grappa 72. My favorite is the Chicken Saltimbocca which other local restaurants just can't seem to master. The service is friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is pleasant.

We've been there often. The food is delicious. The menu has tried and true and some very tasty variations on the classic. We have had a few family events there. On one occasion, we selected a few items from each category to make the services aster for young children. They printed a custom menu for us. We sat in the... More
