The food was very good service excellent
Would have been nice if wait staff told us about the specials. After we ordered and were eating we heard the wait staff telling other diners about the specials and they sounded delicious. We most definitely would have ordered one of the specials. Not a big deal but when you haven’t eaten out in over a year a little disappointing. The food we did have was excellent
Our favorite restaurant. Lovely owners and staff. First time in person dining since October, but have ordered take out throughout the pandemic. Franco and Jim weren’t there, but Carly came by to say hello and staff was very efficient and welcoming, as always!
First time dining there. Very good food and staff! Will be back.
Love this place.
It’s now our go to place Friday evening to start our weekend on a great note! The food is consistently wonderful and so are the cocktails! It’s almost like a little celebration!
Excellent food and service!
Excellent as always. They had a new appetizer this week which was crepes with sausage and it was fabulous!
Could have made a dinner just of that. But, I love their lasagna and that was also available. And the perfectly made Manhattan made it an evening of joy!
Beyond excellent. They never disappoint. Food and service are top notch.
Tried something new for me - Boscaiola - with lumache pasta. All I can say is WOW! Decadent and delicious! Can’t wait for my next visit already. Always an A+ meal!! Thank you.
Wonderfully consistent food each time I visit this restaurant!
Very nice birthday dinner! We enjoyed the food and service.
I am not what you would consider a food snob, so the dinner may have been lost on me. The food itself was okay, nothing special, no issues, just the overall value was not great.
Not in a rush to return, there are other restaurants which I find a better value.
Very friendly and accommodating staff, food was delicious and I travel an hour to dine here
The food was excellent. One of the few times I have gone out to eat and been happy to pay the bill. We were completely satisfied. It was a great night out. I will be eating there again soon.
Everything was just great!
Excellent experience. To be recommended
I am new to the area and I spend a lot of time eating out. This is by far the best restaurant in the Albany area. Both service and food are incredible.
We had a fabulous night out with a friend who was in town. We have not been in several years but knew it would fit the bill for excellent food and cozy, neighborhood feeling. Unfortunately we had an 8:45 reservation and they ran out of bread but they took the initiative and put in a pizza for us without us asking. It was wonderful. Our eggplant and ravioli dishes were outstanding, along with the service. We will be back.
The food was delicious as always. Its a little pricy but the food is excellent.
Excellent food and service! The staff really know the menu and how the food is prepared.
This is such an amazing restaurant. Maybe the best in Albany. A lovely place, experienced, friendly waitstaff and the best Italian food for miles around.
Special places with wonderful food they make themselves including the bread! The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive.
amazing food, amazing service. can't wait to go back!
Fantastic meal enjoyed by all in our party! My husband was delighted to spend his 50th birthday at Cafe Capriccio as it never disappoints!
Server was overwhelmed. Got our drink order wrong. My pasta dish was supposed to include broccoli. I couldn’t get her attention so I just ate it anyway. Stressful. I felt sorry for her, and was relieved to finish and leave
They make all of their own pasta, bread, sausage, etc.! And you can taste the attention to the detail. Every meal is a treat and the staff are warm, friendly and attentive.
The pizza is to die for!
Great food as always
Always delicious. Authentic Italian food that makes you feel like you’re sitting Nanna’s table. Get the meatball and eggplant as an appetizer.
Good was grea
Amazing and friendly staff!
Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants. That said it’s always great. This time something was different! We were seated right away, good
Our waitress was friendly and took our order promptly. The surprising thing was she Never came back to table after food served and asked us how is meal!! I was looking for this because both our meals were cool, warm at best !! Food should be served HOT
Fantastic pasta and cake! Cappuccino was amazing! Best Italian place in Albany that I’ve been to 😊
We went for Valentines Day. It just wasn’t a good fit for us. Very lovely, historic restaurant. Just a bit too quiet for us.
Loved the atmosphere for Valentine’s Day!
The food is great, servers are friendly, drinks are well made, and did I mention the food is GREAT! It's my place to go for Italian food in Albany.
Everything I ordered on the menu was available and excellent. My colleague wanted Fernet-Branca, but the bar was out of stock or does not typically stock it.
There were a few things no longer available after the weekend services, and probably also due to pandemic planning.
Lastly, I believe there was a bit of a Pop/Motown playlist going on. There was a speaker seemingly aimed at our table so it seemed louder than it may have been for the crowd size. It was a little odd for traditional fine dining Italian and the decor of the restaurant.
These are picky things. Otherwise, I love the place no less and am very glad to see how you’ve weathered the pandemic!
Lovely ambiance! Beautiful old style decor. Good old style Italian food. Overpriced
This little hole in the wall never disappoints. Parking can be difficult for those that are not used to city parking but don’t let that deter you from this fantastic restaurant. The food always tastes fresh and seems to be prepared with care. Daily specials are less exotic because of covid lately, but still seasonal , fresh, and delicious. The waitstaff is knowledgable, friendly, and efficient. It can be pricey, but if you want an excellent meal from start to finish don’t hesitate to book a reservation.
