Great food, superior service.

We agree. In fact the food and the service was better than we have experienced in the North End and on Arthur Avenue. Great food and superior service. Can't wait to go back.

I went with Egplant Rollatini and Eggplant Penne. Fabulous dinner. Great atmosphere and service. You won't be disappointed. I thought I was in Brooklyn.

Always wanted to eat here. Had reservations on a Friday a couple weeks ago. Seated at a table with no napkins or menu. Waited a while for waiter. Appetizers were OK. Veal chop underdone and tough. Chicken parm OK. It was so crowded felt that waiters were not able to give us enough attention.

Lucky we were able to get a table for two on short notice. The service was very good. The bread and olive oil was very good. I had eggplant parmigiana was delicious. My wife had the house special Creamy Gorgonzola Seminerio it was cold and not very good. I think they were very busy and one meal was left out... More

Love this family restaurant. I've met friends and family here for many different occasions. My husband and I often enjoy a quiet dinner here. I even had my son's 40th birthday party in the spacious room upstairs. Food is fabulous and the staff awesome. Highly recommend this wonderful and delicious venue.

We had requested one of the two window tables set for coupes. When I saw on the menu that they had my favorite dish, veal francaise which I had greatly... More

I'm a sucker for Italian food and this might be the best I've ever had. It's definitely on par with if not better than anything I've had in Boston's North End and definitely better than anything else I've had in the Capital District.

We just celebrated a big anniversary at Caffe Italia and, as usual, were absolutely blown away by how delicious everything was. From the moment you walk into the restaurant you feel like you've walked into Little Italy. The service is friendly and professional. I don't know if this is a family run business or not, but it certainly feels that... More

First time eating at Caffe Italian. It won't be my last. Went with a few coworkers and we all reaver about the quality and consistency. The bread was crusty yet soft on the inside. It was served with balsamic and oil with seasoning. We ordered Calamari for the appetizer and it was seasoned and breaded perfectly. I ordered the seafood... More
