Food was very good once we got it- one of our couples had finished their dinner before the other couple was served- food order was incorrect and not even the offer of a glass of wine to appease us.

Came with my father and fiancé, my father has been raving about his prior experiences. Everything was wonderful. We were seated quickly, despite no reservation. Tyler took care of us this evening. As someone who has been in the service industry for 15 years, I was quite impressed with his attentiveness, attention to detail, and excellent recommendations. We had a... More

We had lunch outside on my birthday. Honestly I wasn't in the mood for Italian food but I loved my selection! I had chicken Marsala; it was delicious! My husband had chicken parm and he said it was the best he has ever had! Our service was brisk and attentive. A great lunch...we will go back!

As a business traveler I eat dinner at the bar. All I have had so far (and I have visited 6 times in the past 2 months!) is the Veal Parmigiana and it ROCKS. Great bar with a wonderful wine list. And here's the best part: On certain days they have a trio playing Frank Sinatra type tunes. PERFECT!

Went here with our 4 kids for lunch. Host seemed put out that we changed our minds and opted to sit on the patio so as not to disturb the other guests. ("Well, I already set your table..."). Waitress not attentive. My husband had to go into the restaurant two times to get her to come outside. Seemed put upon... More

We had dinner here last Friday and it was very enjoyable. There were two couples in our party and the table was nicely located. There was live music which was quiet enough for us to have a conversation without raising our voices. Wine was very nice, and three of our party had a "special" and no one was disappointed. Would...

We recently went to Grappa 72 for a family event. The facility and staff handled our group of 15 very well. Grappa is well known for its Italian-fare but that night they had a Halibut special. Halibut is not on in the east coast so several in our group had it. Everyone who did was very please. Another special that... More

My wife and I were on a motorcycle trip and we stayed one night in Albany. This restaurant was close to the hotel and its reviews were very good, so we decided to give it a go. And we're glad that we did! We had no reservation, but the hostess made us fell very welcome and found a spot for... More

Food was fabulous and portions very large so we just couldn't finish it. Service was excellent and very helpful. We had the specials- pasta and veal. Chef came out to check we were happy. Reasonably priced and I would definitely recommend it
