Very good Italian food and generous portions

This is the first time that I visited this restaurant since moving to Albany, NY. They serve family style so you can taste a variety of foods. The food was delicious and the service was great.

We waited for a long time to get our drinks and then even longer before anyone on the wait staff came back to check on us. The server we had was very unfriendly and treated us like she didn't care we were there. She had another server come over to help pack up leftovers but they only brought enough to... More

Second visit to the Buca di Beppo in Colonie, NY, and just like last time, we were not disappointed. Family gathering for the holidays, and we were looking for casual good food--Buca di Beppo never fails. Plenty to eat, and with Italian members of the family, good Italian food is a must!!! The sauces are wonderful, the egg plant parmesan... More

Went there after my wife's meeting let out. I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant. The food was delicious the staff very friendly and accommodating. Like going to your Italian grandmothers house for dinner.

When we first walked in, we were overwhelmed by the appealing smells of good food. The restaurant accommodated our large group quickly, and gave us an experienced waitress, so we were served fairly quickly and very efficiently. We loved that the dishes were served family style, because we could try more than one dish. All the dishes we tried were... More

I came to this place with a great mind set. I had heard so many good things, but wow was I wrong. The whole place is filthy. My spaghetti was as cold as Antarctica and my server was as equally terrible. She happened to spill the whole water pitcher on my lap. I would like to say the food made... More

I went with about 10 of my friends for my friend's 20th birthday, and the food was horrific, i went last night and at 11:25am today, still feel nauseous. Everyone hated their food, so we all spent 30 to 40 dollars and food barely touched. Do not recommend going there ever, Delmonico's is quality food, go there!

My husband, son (20 month old) and myself got the Chicken Saltimbocca and it was delicious. We also had the Italian cream cake for dessert and loved it!

Ok, so I live in the south now, and I can't tell you how much I miss good (and I mean good) Italian food. Visiting my kids in the Albany area, and my son suggested Buca di Beppo for dinner. Yum. Buca di Beppo is a classic American Italian restaurant, with black and white photos everywhere, along with the requisite... More
