About the restaurant
La Bella Restaurant & Pizzeria in Valatie, NY is an Italian restaurant where the true taste of the old country reigns supreme. The old family recipes used at La Bella remain true to the mouthwatering homemade dishes prepared in Mama's Cucina Italiana. In Italy, using only the finest and freshest ingredients in the preparation of the meal, is of the utmost importance. At La Bella we believe that is one tradition to revere and to follow every day.

We hope you will join us soon for lunch, dinner, a pizza, or a slice to go.

Buon Appetito!

About the restaurant
Global whole food to feed omnivores & herbivores with a zero & full proof bar

IL FARO means "The Lighthouse." We envisioned being just that: a beacon in the Albany neighborhood, a safe haven from the stresses of everyday life. Strength and serenity. Creating food that please all of the senses. We believe food should look beautiful, smell amazing and taste delicious. We know that dining out is more than just a meal; it's a great new glass of wine, a much needed break from work, a romantic evening with promise, a perfectly mixed cocktail and a memorable meal that you will crave.
