Family run restaurant that continues to offer great Italian food at a great price. Felix and Rosanna continue to provide great Italian food in downtown Albany in a welcoming, comfortable restaurant. I don't know how they do it - they have been offering great Italian food since 1978. Felix is always welcoming. Friendly attentive staff. You have to try the... More

Bongiorno's continues to provide great meals in a cozy and wonderful athmosphere. Felix and Roseanne are great hosts. Had dinner on Valentine's Day. It was wonderful. Roseanne continues to command the kitchen and delivering great meals. We had a great meal and a great night. Prices are reasonable for real Italian food.

Two couples out for a "catch up" kind of night. A cozy table for four near the front window. Prompt friendly service. Quiet comfortable atmosphere. We shared two appetizers-a mozzarella and tomato and a bruschetta. Both had a fresh bright taste. Dinners were excellent and well prepared. Chicken Saltimbocca, eggplant, veal. All enjoyed. Desserts were a Tartuffo and a tiramisu.... More

A friend and I visited this place for dinner on a Friday night. We had no reservations, but were seated promptly. The food was delicious; all entrees are served with Salad, bread, and your choice of pasta. The bread was warm and delicious; the dipping oil and spices were very tasty. I ordered Chicken Parm over a bed of Pasta.... More

Bongiorno's is a family-run classic Italian restaurant that gives the feeling of walking into someone's home.reminiscent of your old Italian grandmother's living room/dining room, the space is vintage and homey. Don't let that for you, however; The menu is extensive, filled with Italian classics as well as inventive, contemporary specials.chicken, seafood, and veal abound, and I on a recent visit,... More

My office walked over there for lunch the other day. We were seated right away. Now I know why. I had to ask the waitress two times to clean the stickiness off the table. Finally I suggested she use a clean cloth as the cloth she used was disgusting. Lunch arrived - it was so-so. Nothing great, nothing I'd brag... More

This place was recommended to us when Katrinella's was closed. We have eaten here twice now and looking forward to going back the next time we are in Albany. We are not bothered by the older decor, in fact it adds to the charm. Our meals were delicious each time. The portions were perfect allowing us to share dessert afterwards.... More

Recommended by hotel staff (Hilton). Reading through the reviews “after” having already gone, I can only reiterate some key words; “old wood paneled dining room,” “atmosphere is classic,” “a little worn,” and “not as good as I anticipated”. We were seated right at the front door with a beautiful view of the kitchen door and the table where the staff... More

We love this restaurant. It's old fashioned wood paneled dining room and white linen tablecloths evoke days gone by. The food is just marvelous. Without a doubt the best alfredo I have ever had! Everything made to order, fresh.
