The restaurant had a lot of history and delicious food....too much food. Sides that people in our party of 9 got were not even touched and since we were staying in a hotel, could not take doggie bags. It seemed like such a waste of food. The Wednesday pasta special was great. It was very homey and a nice local... More

Absolutely great tasting meals and service, especially the fresh pasta! Only reason for a 4 instead of a 5 is the decor, stuck in the 80's wood paneling going on.

Usually has big crowds for dinner but is worth the wait. Not sure if they take reservation, but it is worth a try if you plan to go. Use your GPS to... More

Love the large salad that includes everything, even roasted peppers. Wonderful bread variation and more food than anyone can eat at one sitting.

Just a great little Italian restaurant in a neighorhood setting. Always regulars at the bar who are very friendly. Very good food at super reasonable prices. Wait staff treats you like you were in their home. Get there early for lunch as it is a popular spot for GE execs.

Not sure what happened. This used to be THE place to go for awesome authentic Italian in Schenectady. Now? Not so much. Brought out- of- town guests for dinner and I'll never go back again. Had a reservation for 7 pm on Saturday night. We didn't get seated till 7:45. And the place wasn't even busy. The food? Mediocre at... More
