Great food... we have ordered from here numerous times to go. However on this occasion we ate at the restaurant. :-/. Wish we had ordered to go and stayed home. Server wasn't very hospitable. Service was slow. If you want great food, this is a good bet. If you have all night to spend there, eat in. Otherwise just take... More

No matter what you order, the food is OUTSTANDING!!! Fast friendly service and "Kevin" always welcomes you with a smile and is most efficient! Pizza, fish, chicken, salad, and all pasta dishes are excellent. Price are very reasonable-good for families. This is a must visit restaurant!!! We been going to Testo's for over 30 years and have never been disappointed!!!... More

This restaurant is a little neighborhood restaurant with really good old world flavors! My husband, daughter and mother-in-law each had something different and they were all delicious. The sauces were fabulous and the portions were big. You may want to share. We will definitely be back the next time we are in New York!

Brought hungry college students here. Reminded me of The Hill in St. Louis. Atmosphere was of a bygone era. Polite. Dim light. Delicious smells. The food was unbelievable! Huge portions would make for sharing. Had lobster ravioli that was just scrumptious! You will not leave hungry but you will leave satisfied and happy. I will be back next time I... More

YUM! I've never had a bad meal here. I eat here once a week at least. Friday's special penne alla vodka is amazing ! Also amazing is the meatball parm. Honestly everything on the menu is great. It's not a fancy place but it's very reasonably priced and the portions are huge.

I have seldom been disappointed with any of the food at Testo's. Close to home, hot and good. They are a family place and sometimes the order gets mixed up but we eat there a couple times a month

This place is a throw-back. In a good way! It's on a corner in a residential neighborhood in north Troy. You can tell by the look, and the easy way customers are strolling in that it is a place for local and long-time customers (though smart travelers know that's a sign of where THEY should eat, too). GREAT value for... More

Great food, like going to Grandma's house for a nice big meal. Staff is super friendly and service is fast. Decor could use updating. Pasta fazioli is amazing!

Great family Italian food! Troy has a big Italian population and this is authentic with great sauce. Besides the usual Italian menu they make delicious pizza!

Testo's Has very good Sicilian Style pizza, this is sheet pizza for those of you who are not familiar with typical Sicilian fare I can only comment on there pizza which is not the best in the world BUT it beats anywhere in the general area that i have had! Excellent food per dollar ratios as well.
