“We are regulars, never had a bad meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

Wonderful. Converted house, with the front wall all glass. Small, but not cramped. The menu is eclectic, but with a lot of spanish style dishes. I usualyy order fish, and have tried most of the fish dishes on the menu, one better than the next. Try it once, you'll be back.

“Excellent food, very good service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2011

We ate there on Saturday, April 29th. Had excellent meals including squash ravioli as an appetizer, very generous servings, server was excellent, only downside was noise from bar, building is a converted dwelling and is small, we arrived around 5:30 and were seated promptly, by 6pm place was full.

The food was unique and absolutely delicious, not so cheap though, but well worth it for special occassions.

“Borderline”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2009

We were not looking for great, but this was reported to be "the best" dining in Albany. First, this is not a tapas restaurant. They advertise same, but it is strictly an Italian full appetizer / entree menu. So, don't go expecting "small bites."

Coming from Philadelphia, I found the food below average. It did not even meet the standard of Olive Garden. Neither of us could finish our dish. The room had a funky smell and the waitress was snooty.
