Excellent meal & service, very attentive staff, great salmon, great value and ambience.
This restaurant used to be one of our favorites for a classy, cozy place to eat. We had not eaten there in quite a while. The Mazzone group runs it now. They own about 6-7 restaurants and catering, mostly all high-end places with large price tags. We were disappointed in the food and the service. After complaining, one dish was taken off the bill and we received a complimentary dessert. But, I don't think we will rush back.
Celebrated anniversary at Tivola as we were married at the Mansion 18 years ago. Service was horrible. No one congratulated us on our anniversary and we were the only table in the place. It has really gone down hill as we have been to this restaurant through all the changes for 18 years
Dinner was wonderful. The meal came to us hot and tasty. The beet salad was delicious but pricey. Mohito was perfect.
I enjoy Sunday Brunches.
In recent years many restaurants in the tri-state area have stopped offerring sunday brunches. Many of the brunch restaurants have closed.
Angelo's Tavelo has offerred a consistently well appointed brunch experience. The staff is motivated and work as a team to make the dining experience as pleasant as possible. I am consistantly impressed that the restaurant manager is on the floor and available to lend a helping hand when necessary.
The atmosphere is casual and attracts various kinds of customers.
My service has always been courteous and performed with care. In recent visits, I've been taken care of by Sam (Samantha). She has been an excellant server and really likes her job and the work that comes with it. Sam makes the brunch experience that much better.
Visit Angelo's Tavelo for Sunday brunch. Ask for Sam and tell her that Chris sent you.
Everything we ate was good except for the calamari which both my wife an daughter considered tasteless. Good sized portions.
Tavalo has gone downhill so far that it is absolutely horrible. I have dined here frequently over the years it has been in operation. What happened!!! I noticed it was declining the last few times I was here, but this time, the restaurant was empty the entire time we were with only one other party before we were done.... THAT should be a clue!!! The table we were seated at had an exposed picture hook (and shadow) on the wall where there used to be a picture...ODD ambiance! That was just the beginning. The food we ordered was extremely sub-par, not even one star worthy, and it took forever to arrive! Let me remind you that for the first 30 minutes we were the only two people in the dining room! Perhaps they went out shopping for our meal ingredients while we were waiting. Horrible experience, they should close.
Menu very limited. Awful service- never asked to refill drinks, waited 20 mins to order dessert and decided not to. There were 4 couples and a different waitress for each one. Food was mediocre
Veal Milanese excellent
Pork chop great
Beautiful dining room and excellent service. We had 2 beers and wine during happy hour in the pub. Great wine and good price. I had lobster bisque which was ok but kind of salty. The mushroom soup was much better and 1/2 the price $6 for generous bowl. Salmon was very good. And enough for lunch the next day. Steak was a little chewy and sauce / veggies were way too salty and we love salt. Bread was delicious too.
My fiancé and I chose to come here for our 7th anniversary dinner, since we will be getting married at the mansion next year. We wanted this to become our anniversary tradition and boy did we pick right. The service was spot on, friendly, and professional. The food was beyond excellent, especially the 7hr cherry pepper pork, the salmon, and the chicken milanese. It is definitely more of a special occasion place for most. We will be coming back every year.
Leisurely lunch, attentive and friendly service, and the pasta bolognese was absolutely delicious--with tender chunks of beef and pork rather than ground meats. I had to push my plate aside and take half home--even though I got the small size. Caesar salad was very tasty, with bacon bits.
My wife and I celebrated our birthdays at brunch at Glen Sanders. The food was wonderful. There were many choices of various types of food. The desserts were so good but I did not have much room left after the main courses. Our waiter Manny was very friendly and attentive. (Thanks Manny)
We will definitely come again.
We dined in there basement bar area, old stone foundation for walls, old wood beams for ceiling. Really a cute place and could be very romantic with the right person, simply soggy with atmosphere.
Bar nicely stocked and a knowledgeable staff.
The meal I had was scrumptious.
We were unable to eat since they had no one who could serve us. We were first told to go to the restaurant. We waited but no one came to seat us. We went back to the front and they told us the only place to eat was in the bar since they close the restaurant on Sunday evenings. Then, the bartender kept getting an influx of people buying drinks so no one could wait on us. We left to eat somewhere else . The bartender was apologetic about the lack of faciliites available to serve us. OPen Table should NOT accept reservations for this restaurant on Sundays. You should block anyone from having the ridiculous waste of time that we experience.
It was my wife's birthday. Everything was perfect. Our server was outstanding and friendly.
We had a wonderful Mother's Day lunch at Tavolo. The food was great and our server Vinod was excellent. We enjoyed both the specials and the craft cocktails. Unlike many places, you could have a pleasant conversation without having to shout over music or other diners.
Very nice dinner for a birthday celebration, with nice service
Meal was incredible and service was great. We will definitely be back!
Attentive and friendly staff - excellent cuisine - I think this is the best stop in the Schenectady area.
Awesome selection of fresh, delicious food. Easter brunch was our first experience here. Couldn't ask for better. Piano music was nice. Servers were accommodating and attentive. Look forward to visiting again soon.
Best veal parm I've ever had. I've never had it with one with one in before. It was spectacular. It is a little pricey but the food was well worth the extra $. Great wine selection.
Only negative was no staff at reception station; waited 5-10 minutes for someone to appear.
Everything else was outstanding. Particularly impressive was the obvious training regarding every detail. Our wait staff operated with precise perfection.
Buena Salute !
Service was fair at best, twice we had a wait for silverware. Price was high for what we received. Have been going once or twice for years but this time the experiance was fair at best
Food was good, service not so much. Really like the ambiance of this place so probably will go back but the wait staff needs to step it up.
I was immediately disappointed to find out that Tavolo was closed and our options were to find another place or dine in the basement lounge. The fact that this website allowed me to make a reservation at a restaurant that was not open is unacceptable. We decided to stay because it may have been difficult to get a table elsewhere. Wicked was performing two shows that Sun day at Proctor's and many local restaurants were booked. The lobster bisque soup w/crab was very salty. The crab was nice lump meat that was warmed separately then added to the bowl prior to the bisque being poured over it tableside. It made the bisque bearable. The shrimp bruschetta had nice large shrimp but the bruschetta itself was bland. The pasta Bolognese was flavorful and well executed. The eggplant Panini was very good. The squash risotto was creamy but a bit bland. Our server was attentive and kept things moving along. the overall experience was OK but I expected better. Open table should not advertise seating at Tavolo when that is not what you are getting......it is misleading and a poor business practice.
We went there for Schenectady Restaurant Week although we have been there in the past. As always food was well prepared and service was excellent. Dining room is spacious and quiet.
Wonderful food and service. We had a gift card and it was Restaurant Week. We were treated as if we were full paying customers in every way and would definitely return for special occasions. Tavolo is a high quality sophisticated dining experience unique to the Capital Region.
The waiter took his time between courses allowing us the time to enjoy the food and company we were with. We never felt rushed.
Great meal and great service
Not your everyday menu, which is a good thing. Overall small menu, but food was excellent. Servers were very nice, courteous and class A professional, but service was very slow at times. 40 minutes from being done with entre to receiving desert. Great wine list by glass and bottle. Very darkly lit, so you may need your flashlight lol.
Will definitely go back, but for more of a special occasion than regular dining.
We decided to taste the Restaurant Week menu, and were delighted with our choices.. the swordfish was superb, as was the pork loin. The service is always at its best. We will be back.
Excellent staff with good menu choices and excellent specials. Good selection of wines and desserts that top the night off well.
We find this restaurant is great for special occasions and casual quiet dining. The menu gives you a choice of gourmet and well prepared items that are special to this restaurant.
Great ambiance. Love the colonial look and feel. Food was very good. Service was excellent until the very end when our server seemed in a hurry to move us along...dining room had many seats open. Overall very good though.
We were welcomed right away and received great service. The server was attentive to all of our needs; the Chicken Milanese was delicious, as was the Fettuccini. Can't wait to return.
Ed was fantastic! Thanks so much for the great Sophisticated Socialite!
We can't dine at the Maquas Bar without ordering the 7 hour cherry pepper pork. Always our favorite! We had An eggplant panini - my fave and a Burger that never upsets!
Great job as always!
Attentive wait staff but not the kind that are in your face all the time. Not a huge menu but enough options to satisfy. Prices reasonable. We ordered the Calamari appetizer and it was delicious! Entree sizes were large enough to take some home for "leftover" dinner the following evening. Food was freshly prepared, taste was excellent, presentation very good. The jazz style music that was being played over the speakers wasn't our style of music and at times was a little much, but it certainly wasn't a deal-breaker for us.
