great mix of fine italian and mediterranean cuisine. the veal daniel is a treat, and the mole sauce on the chicken enchiladas is a must. if you like seafood, try the paella

I hadn't been here since the early 90s and it was still exceptional! I was not disappointed. Food was outstanding, the portions generous; all 3 of us loved our meals! Perfectly prepared, abundant flavors. Can't leave out the wait staff in this review as they were professional, friendly and courteous. The best service I've encountered in a while. Thought the...

Hadn't been to this restaurant in years and was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the recent reviews but I will be looking forward to a return visit. We had reservations for 6:30 on a Saturday night and were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Their portions are rather generous so I skipped an appetizer and ordered one of the... More

We've eaten here probably 4 or 5 times in the last 2 years and it has always been excellent. For our most recent dinner my wife had Chicken Mediterranean, one of her favorites. I had the Seafood Paella. The lobster, shrimp, clams, mussels, and calamari were all fresh and excellent, and the chorizo and saffron rice were outstanding. The calamari... More

My company has held our annual Christmas party here for years. When we arrived this year, instead of having one large table to seat all of our guests (which is what has happened in the past), our tables were scattered throughout the restaurant. No big deal--we asked if we could just push the tables together so we could all sit... More

This restaurant (located across the entrance from the University at Albany) has, per its website, "an upscale atmosphere." It specializes in Spanish & Mediterranean cuisine with American & Italian options as well. For example, their lunch & dinner menus both offer paella choices. The restaurant is attractive with a Mediterranean feel, certainly more intimate than dining in a chain restaurant.... More

We've eaten here on numerous occasions. The food is always excellent and the service is top notch. Only issue is it is not handicapped accessible (bathrooms on the second floor with a steep stair case). Outstanding northern and western Mediterranean food.

I had eaten here a few years ago for dinner & enjoyed it, so when my co-workers asked where I would like my retirement lunch, I thought of here since it was close by, and i always wanted an excuse to go back again. (Since I don't live in the area, it wouldn't be a top choice for dinner unless... More
