“Great, home-cooked italian food”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

This restaurant has been there for decades. Pizza and pasta the best in the area - homecooked and fresh. It has the red-checkered tablecloths and all. Geat for Sunday dinner or Friday night.

“Amazing Pizza”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

Red Front's Pizza is the best in the Capital Region. I should know, as a grad student out in Albany, I had a lot of late night pizza and Red Front's stands out by far. It is cooked to perfection and can hang with any of the pizza joints in New York City which is the pizza capital of the world. Service at the restaurant can be spotty at times - I have had good waitresses and bad waitresses here but because of the quality of the food, I allow the, at times, subpar service to slide.

If you're in the Capital Region and have not tried this place yet, you are doing yourself a disservice by not traveling across the river to downtown Troy.I recommend plain cheese, mixed peppers, and the white pie. They are all excellent.

“Great Pizza & Other Food, Drinks, Staff...”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

I have not visited the Red Front for over 25 years and had the opportunity to return. The atmosphere is an informal family environment and the place was amazingly busy. After experiencing the food, especially the pizza and pasta, you could understand the crowds. The food was great, staff was polite and attentive and the prices were fair. Nice experience and i can understand why after 25 years the business continues to do very well and it has expanded. Definitely a recommend in the greater Troy, NY area.
