Italian | Albany, Upstate New York

We were a party of 7 celebrating our brother’s birthday. The table was ready for us when we arrived. Our server was on top of getting us drinks when we arrived. She was friendly and very efficient! We liked that the owner came to say hi to my brother and his wife. And that she demanded her husband put deep fried cookie dough on the dessert menu. The only downside was the noise level. My husband has trouble hearing and the noise seemed to bounce off the walls making it difficult for him. Other than that we had a great evening. More

The restaurant itself was great. However, Opentable should remove the option to reserve outdoor seating because apparently you can’t actually do that. I reserved “outdoor” seating for my friends and I and we were seated inside and told that outside is always first come first serve and that it doesn’t even show that I requested outside on their end.
