Returned recently with a group of friends. We started at the congenial bar for excellent drinks in this warm, welcoming room before moving to the wine room – a great, semi-open (possible to close with glass doors for more privacy but still a feel for the room) setting. The overall décor is chic and inviting. Our waiter (Tyler) couldn’t have... More

My wife ordered the halibut and I ordered the chicken caprese which was delicious. Our son ordered the chicken Marsala. We also ordered the fig appetizer. We finished dinner... More

Although located at the back end of a strip mall off Central Ave. in Albany, it is worth the seach. The food was excellent, and the service was top notch. The waitress was very informed about the entrees and efficent and friendly. Look for coupons for a great priced lunch.

Friendly knowledgeable staff; stylish decor with intimate nooks. Food was excellent - piccata was not on the menu but they had no problem accommodating my request and it was exceptional. The pistachio gelato was heavenly. All told it was a lovely evening -highly recommend. Will be back next time I'm in Albany!

We found this restaurant solely on trip advisor. We stopped in. Were immediately seated. Service was fast and fantastic. The meal and the house wine were perfect. The atmosphere was cozy. My boss who was traveling with me loved it and loved not being in the chain store. Our server Corrie who was on her second week was absolutely great.

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
