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!

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!

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

I'm not normally a fan of 'family style' restaurants, but I'd recommend this place any time! We went with a group of parents and their lacrosse-playing daughters and had a great time. The food is really good with generous portions, the wine is good, and the full bar can handle any request. I especially loved the lasagna and the caprese... More

First time ever at this family style restaurant. It was busy, loud, festive, and filled with lots of conversation and laughter. I have experienced this at other restaurants, but this one had a different feel to it. It felt like you walked into a large family gathering where everyone had their assigned seating and everyone just hung out. I liked... More

I was alone and Travelodge behind restaurant suggested I go to the Bar and ask for Lunch Menu no matter the time of day. It was perfect for single serving because restaurant is family style. I sat at a booth. The bartender served me and was great. Food was good. Restaurant is on major road (Wolf Road) where it is... More

We always tend to order the same dinners on our visits - the house salad and the San Remo pasta. Both are delicious. The salad has a great vinaigrette. The San Remo pasta has chicken, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and a creamy, garlicky sauce that is addictive. This is a great choice for families as the meals are served family-style... More

This restaurant serves very typical Italian American food that puts other chain Italian restaurants to shame. The portions are HUGE and the atmosphere is conducive to large and boisterous gatherings so I wouldn't come here for a romantic date night. For a chain, the food, for the most part, maintains a very homemade, long time cooking flavor. The salads are... More

Lots of pictures to look at on the walls and I mean LOTS. Food was good but average and there was plenty of it. If you walk away hungry it's your fault because it comes on huge platters. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
