The only complaint that I
The only complaint that I have, is that there isn't a restaurant like it closer to our home. We drove from Pittsfield, MA and it was definitely worth the drive! (1 hrs 15 min).

My wife and I dined there
My wife and I dined there for her 50th birthday. Both the food and service were outstanding. Matthew, our server, did a great job providing us knowledge as well as not giving us the feeling of being rushed. As a 1984 graduate of the CIA (I'm no longer in the business), I'd like to think I know great food and service; this was both.

I can't comment on some of the above having only eaten here once. I don't know about outdoor dining, hot spot, if open for lunch or brunch. Everyone enjoyed their dinners and service very much. Very comfortable atmosphere. I would definitely want to go again.

First time at Glen Sanders and enjoyed the experience. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.
For me a non fish eater the menu was limited but enjoyed my meal. Would prefer some other options than pasta with entrees. Nevertheless excellent quality, hot to table and the desserts were excellent.
Would like to revisit in the summer and perhaps sit outside! Nice building with a historic background which was interesting. Good service which was impressive as they had a large event (wedding?) going on at the same time and a full restaurant.

One of the best Italian meals I have had in North America (or in Italy). Top quality food and very generous portions. The ravioli in texture, taste and simplicity was wonderful. The calamari was perfectly done, not too soft and not too firm and served with great and simple accompaniments. A shrimp appetizer was again perfectly cooked, seasoned and presented. Chicken Milanese was distinctive and memorable. The winelist has some real bargains. Overall a top restaurant for people who enjoy great food and great ambiance.

We book a reservation for Angelo's Tavern to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Our table is always waiting for us an d the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed with plenty of time to have a dinner at one's leisure. The food is exceptional. Each item is prepared to perfection.

We had a wonderful evening that exceeded our expectations. We loved everything for a special night out on our anniversary. Very attentive and friendly staff. Food was superior and we can't wait to return for other items we saw on the menu.

You can't go wrong ...
.... with a Mazzone joint. They are all always superb. Our waitress was great, by the way (Monday, May 6).

A wonderful birthday dinner.
I had the pleasure of hosting my mother and my girlfriend for a delightful birthday dinner at Angelo's Tavolo this past Saturday. The food was superb, the service far above average and the total experience enjoyable.
We will certainly be back again.

Dinner at Tavolo
My husband and I were in town over the weekend to visit with our daughter who is a college student at Union. This was our first visit to Tavolo and it more than exceeded my expectations from the atmosphere to the food. We sarted out with the fresh made mozzarella. What a treat! I had the Roasted Jumbo Shrimp and it was absolutely delicious! My husband and daughter each chose a veal dish. They also raved about their entrees. The service was very good although I got the sense our server was new so she appeared a bit unsure of herself. With that said she was none-the-less attentive. Overall it was great and I can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu.

Wonderful Mother's Day Brunch
They were very accomodating. We had not signed up for the bruch, but when we arrived they found us a nice quiet spot in the secondary brunch room and it was wonderful.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great New York Strip steak
It was cooked to perfection-Medium. The Wait staff has always been friendly and attentive. I wish the serving of the vegetable was larger than the potatoes, but that's why I ordered a salad first.
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Superb Food and Service
We were celebrating our anniversary and were told Angelo Tavolo's (AT) was the place to go. AT did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived it was terrific. We were welcomed immediately upon our arrival and brought to a window table. Very elegant dining room. A place card acknowledged our anniversary - nice touch. The waiter/his assistant were amazing - professional, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, attentive, personable. The food was excellent - calamari, chopped salad, scallops, shrimp. Never felt rushed. Always made to feel special. Only suggestion - the adjacent wine room hosted a small wedding and the voices were loud. There should be a door to close.
Bottom line - great experience. Highly recommend. Special thanks to the staff.
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
good service & food
took my fiancé and her friends there. One friend is lactose intolerant. Once told, the waiter (Bryan?) took great care of it, including getting us a second appetizer minus cheese for free. Great service all around. Food was excellent to boot. Highly recommend.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
my wife and i were celebrating our 34th anniversary,and we were looking for a special place for dinner.we found it at tavolo.everything about that place made it such a memorable night. we will be visiting angelo's tavolo on a regular basis.

The food was outstanding as it always is! The service was ok, the server lacked personality and needed to pay a little better attention to the needs of her customers. Tavolo is still a outstanding spot for great food and usually great service.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the type of restaurant you dress up to go to. I've been there for Sunday brunch three times. The food quality and selection is excellent!

Very nice brunch
We came for brunch for a special occasion and were very impressed. Service was very attentive. Food options were really varied and everything we tried was delicious.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Before we got to the restaurant, we found out that they had a truncated summer menu and that instead of the dining room, dinner was being served at the tavern. To our surprise and delight, while the ambiance is that of a tavern , the food was definitely a fine representation of exquisite and creative Italian cuisine. The warm mozzarella with grilled artichokes starter was heavenly. My husband's veal chop was done to perfection with an authentic light tomato sauce. My culotte steak was tasty and tender. The meal left us wanting more and will certainly be back when the menu reverts back to the more extensive version and the dining room reopens with its white linen and fireplace and candlelights!

Great food and service
It was a pleasure to celebrate our anniversary at this restaurant again. A gem in the Capital District area.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love going to Tavolo or any restaurant of Angelo's, because you always know you are going to have a wonderful dining experience! Suzy is the manager and she is spectacular...she always is right on top of everything and welcomes you like you are dining in her home. It was my sister's birthday and she was thrilled to see a Happy Birthday Card on the table. Brian, our waiter, could not have been more accommodating throughout our evening. He did everything he could to make the evening special for all of us. Everyone loved their food and Suzy brought out my sister's favorite dessert which is strawberry shortcake.. Thank you everyone at Tavolo for making such a special evening for my sister!!!

incredible food, so-so ambience
We booked a table for 4 for the Travers 1864 prix fixe promotion at Tavolo's @ Glen Sanders Mansion. The food--at any price, let alone $18.64--was phenomenal, not just the 3 courses but also the bread and butter selection. We all, who hail from much larger cities (2 of us lived in NYC for a decade) and are foodies, savored every bit. And we were as impressed with the service as with the food. My only complaint is with the decor in the cellar tavern where we ate, it was a bit banal: wonderful architectural features to the place (old fieldstone walls, nice big wooden beams, big beautiful brick open fireplace), but they were undermined by banal furniture and TVs and musical selection.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite spot.
My wife and I go to Tavolo every year on our wedding anniversary. The thought of their lobster bisque or fresh mozzarella sets our mouths watering weeks in advance. From the ambience to the service and definitely the cuisine, this is the best restaurant in the capital district.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Five Star Rating
All the food was excellent. The menu was varied and artistically presented. I have had several family get-togethers at Glen Sanders for brunch and have never been disappointed. . . . . . outstanding!!!!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was a quiet night, as only of one three tables in the restaurant, but could imagine it more vibrant on the weekends. Friends recommended we get the table side mozzarella preparation, which Bryan performed skillfully. The honey fig mozzarella was fresh, yet savory. Delicious caesar salad and homemade pasta. Our booth faced a window where a gazebo illuminated after sunset. Exceptional service by Bryan and rest of staff. Will come back next time we're in the area.

A great night to remember.
Celebrated our 22nd anniversary by going to dinner at Angelo's Tavalo. My wife was very pleased and excited. The attention shown to her and I was amazing. The ambience was wonderful, the food was exquisite. I definitely looking forward to coming back..
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great atmosphere, attentive service and superb Italian food. The calamari, ravioloi and Pollo Milanese are as good or better than at the best New York City Italian restaurants and rival the best meals I have had in Italy. I have eaten there twice, and each time was memorable.

Best Capital Region Sunday Brunch
Angelo's Tavolo had me with their bread pudding.
I have enjoyed Sunday brunch on three separate occasions. Each time I enjoyed a new version of bread pudding, a variety of breakfast/lunch dishes and outstanding service. Great value considering the superb food quality (juice and coffee are included), ambiance and outstanding service.

Great Service and Fabulous Food
We drove an hour or so to get to the restaurant and meet up with some friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. The reviews were not wrong. The atmosphere of the restaurant is pure class. The staff were all helpful and engaged. Our server was attentive and quite funny. WE had a party of 6. We all ordered appetizers to start the meal. The mozzarella made fresh at the table was a huge hit. Fun to watch and great to eat. (The tomato jam preparation was the best for us.) The shrimp bruschetta was a wonderful surprise, probably the best thing we ate that night. The 7 hour pork provoked lots of satisfied noises. Some dishes were average only, but most were stellar. We will be coming back.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best restaurant dining experiences I've ever had. For our party of 4 all the entree's were cooked to perfection. The ambiance was intimate and service was attentive without being oppressive. I would recommend this to anyone and I am looking forward to returning and trying out more of the menu.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner at Glen Sanders
The ambience, service, and comfort were outstanding. The dinners were good, but the scallops were very salty. My husband's steak filet was a little tough, but cooked exactly as he ordered. We wish we had had enough room for dessert!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our 7th or 8th visit. Consistently spectacular with stellar service. They subbed out something I didn't want for broccoli-rob... it was the best I ever had.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Great Evening
We decided to go to Angelo's Tavolo Sat. night to celebrate our anniversary, and as usual the evening turned out to be very enjoyable. The food, service, ambiance and table was great. We've never been disappointed in many years of dining here.
Absolutely no complaints!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding personalized attention!
I made this reservation and noted not only were we celebrating our 5th anniversary, but we hosted our wedding there in 2008 and was great then too!
Received a personalized note acknowledging our anniversary and great service the whole night, great food and wine! :-)
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved It Every Time!
The great experience starts when you walk through the door. You always feel wanted and everyone seems passionate about wanting to do a great job......thank you!!!
Every month a few of get together to catch up and Tavolo seems to be our regular meet up place. We have tried other restaurants but we keep on coming back. We start with a drink, wine for dinner (always many good ones to choose from), apps and dinner. I can honestly say all are outstanding.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure
Had Sunday Brunch, belated celebration for hubby's birthday. Brunch is always delicious, wide variety of foods and the wait staff is always very attentive.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
My mother and I recently had a wonderful brunch at the Glen Sanders! Excellent food, beautiful surroundings, good wait staff! We were nicely surprised at the variety of available foods and the quality of all the foods! The beef was tasty and tender, the eggplant parmesan was perfect! I especially liked the large crispy shrimp salad!! Thank you!
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
We sat in Maquas Lounge in the basement. It was very cozy, great wine specials, free cheese and crackers. The fresh pulled mozzarella was to die for, and the bar menu offered budget friendly choices after filling up on yummy foccacia.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food, Great Time
Great place for a special occasion. Food was outstanding from the appetizer through the dessert. Plus they have an excellent wine list. The fresh mozzarella appetizer shouldn't be missed.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My new "fancy" Sunday Brunch spot
We were a party of 6 for my mom's birthday. Our server was very nice and prompt. Refilled our drinks without having to ask-love that! Food: Equal choices of breakfast and lunch options-hot and cold. very good quality food. Lunch had a seafood paella, eggplant parm, Saratoga dough boys and lots more... dessert selection great: bready sweets, cannoli, pies, assorted mousses. only suggestion would be to have the kitchen chef make the scrambled eggs. at that time, the omelet chef was also responsible for the scrambled eggs on the buffet, so there weren't any scrambled eggs avail bc so many people were asking for omelets. and they were asking for omelets bc there were no scrambled eggs! vicious cycle, lol.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never disappointed here after several dining experiences
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Their veal chop on the bone,
Their veal chop on the bone, served milanese or parmigiana, is by far the best in the Capital region. The Mazzone touch is evident.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my Wife to Tavolo for a special birthday dinner and it was wonderful. The ambiance, wine, appetizer, entrée, dessert cordials and service were awesome.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was excellent. My only complaint is that they have a few more options. They did not have a carving table. Their omelets, homemade muffins, french toast, and sliced filet with brown sauce were delicious!
