During the crazy time of 2020, one of our favorite Italian restaurant doesn't have their dining room opened so we have tried other places in the area. On this night, we tried Armandos. The food is really delicious, fairly large portions...especially when ordering the pork...chops. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. We would eat here again.More

We make it a point to dine here whenever we are in Schenectady. This time it was two nights in a row! The first night we shared the broccoli rabe and white beans appetizer which was just delicious followed by the calamari over linguine. It's...the best calamari in red sauce ever and we're Italian! The next night we were lucky to get a reservation for Valentine's Day. We had the broccoli rabe and white beans appetizer again plus the lobster risotto special. Both excellent, For entrees we had the branzino in lemon butter sauce and it was perfectly cooked and delicious. The food here is impeccacably fresh, authentic, well prepared and generously portioned..and just plain delicious! We love this place!More

Only two very minor complaints: the pasta fagolia was not the traditional recipe I was expecting (although very tasty) and the veal Milanese was a little dry therefore it could have used a little more sauce. But the waitress was great, the meal was wonderful,...salads cool and crisp, the desserts very yummy. We had a lovely evening out to celebrate our 11th anniversary. thank you. The place was packed. Make reservations on the weekend.More

Armondo's is a treat every time we eat here! This is a must try Italian restaurant in the Capital district. We eat here at least twice a month and have never been disappointed. First tip is to pay a little extra and upgrade your pasta...side dish to there Homemade Cavatelli the best I have ever had. A few of of our favorites are Appetizer Utica greens. Chicken dish's Chicken parmesan, Chicken Francaise, Chicken Romano and the Chicken Sorrento when they have it on special. For beef dish's I recommend the stuffed steak and the Bistecca Tagliata. The service is always top notch water glasses are never empty and all servers are always smiling.They also have the best lemon drop martinis. My favorite server is Trish and the best part of the place is the maitre d Joanne she is the sweetest lady in the world. Armondo thank you for your hard work and your awesome staff I know this does not just happen in this business see you soon! CiaoMore

This is a fabulous restaurant. Big, delicious food and might I say underpriced. The pork chops (yes you get two) are huge, juicy, well seasoned and grilled to perfection. Highly recommend this stop!
