“One of the best, and best values, in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2011

We have dined at Grappa 72 Ristorante 3 times and definitely will return, as we have never been disappointed. Twice we dined as a couple, and once as a group of 15 because we liked it so much we had a staff Christmas luncheon there in early December. The large group was handled with the same courteous, friendly service (granted, it was at a less busy mid-day hour) that we found as a couple. The menu is not overly broad, but all has been handled and presented beautifully. The same with a nice, but not extensive wine list. Moderate pricing and no sense of ostentatiousness. The somewhat hidden location makes it a destination .... and a worth-while one.

“Dining at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2011

Food, service, atmosphere and even (for the very first time for us) pleasant, relaxing music to enjoy your dinner by. It was one of the best dining experiences we have had. The wait staff worked together. If another staff member saw that you needed something or a plate was to be removed they took care of. Water glass always full. Wine was not your usual restaurant pour, but more. The food was spectacular. If you enjoy salmon, this is the place. I would put it up against anywhere I have ever been and the chicken marsala was delightful, tender and light. Leave room for dessert because the Tiramisu is to die for. The presentation is terrific. This is our new favorite place to go. You are treated like you are the customer. What more could you ask for. Back to the music, slow, low and 40's style with real words. Then a move to a little more up beat after 9:30 pm. The time went fast, but we stayed, relaxed and just enjoyed it all. You have to try it.

“First time visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2011

We stumbled upon this restaurant last night following a shopping trip to Albany and what a great surprise. There was a live jazz music playing near the entrance and set the scene well. The decor is classy and the atmosphere is upmarket yet comfortable.

The staff were extremely attentive yet treated us as though we were regulars.

The menu offered a lot to choose from I went for a veal dish paired with figs and a chianti reduction which was simply amazing. My wife chose the Chilean sea bass which was equally as tasty.

If you have not tried thus place yet check it out and you will soon realize you have been missing out! The owner is the chef hence the attention to detail.

Can't wait until we return again.
