“Don't usually go out for Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We rarely go out for Italian food, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Italian Restaurant located on Upper Union Street, in Niskayuna. Food is tasty and service is good.

“Holiday Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Pizza here is always fantastic. You simply can't go wrong. When you order an actual dish, you are not disappointed as portion size here is good also.

“Usually very good, but on 2 recent visits, it was not good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We've been coming to Scotti's for several years. We've pretty much eaten all the entree's offered. We always had a good meal, from the eggplant rollatini, to the penne puttanesca, to the cavatelli and broccoli, to the veal sorrento or parmigiana, to the pizzas. But on 2 recent visits, the food was not good. Worse, it was their lasagne which we have enjoyed on many an occasion. It was way overcooked, burnt to be exact. I guess everyone has a bad night, but our other meal was also awful, but I can't remember what it was. I know we threw it out and had a PB&J sandwich instead. It's been a few months and we haven't returned. This use to be our go-to place. I guess we will have to give it another shot. Two bad out of many good? Hmmmm

“Always an excellent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We love their pizza, and all of their entrees are delicious. They only problem is that it's small, so when the outside section closes for the season you may have a problem getting a table on a Friday night. Service is always excellent as well.

“Good Portions, decent italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

Portion size here is great. They have the typical italian dishes, but I felt as though some taste may have been sacrificed in order to make the large portion. I had a mushroom and cream based pasta and it was very bland, but all my friends rave about Scotti's and love going.
