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!

Everyone in our party of six enjoyed their meal. There was not one complaint and that takes some doing. The waiter was very good and never wrote down any of our orders, did it all by memory.

My brothers & I treated our 81 yr old mom to an early Mother’s Day lunch—food was delicious, our seating was perfect, ambience was fun and clean, and our servers were attentive, helpful and very friendly!

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.

All of the food was amazing! My mom is very picky and enjoyed all of her brunch choices & drink! My Dad generally likes everything, but doesn’t always say anything. He said everything was fantastic!

We always get the burrata and prosciutto app, which is delicious. We stuck with pizzas last night for dinner because we were in a hurry- we had the honey diavolo and the burrata and pancetta special. Everything was perfect, and we were in and out in under 45 minutes. Service was excellent.

About the restaurant
The Hoffman House restaurant, in the scenic Hudson Valley, opened for business in June of 1977. The building is a fine example of Early American Dutch rubble architecture featuring wide planked random width board floors, a fire place in each of the main rooms and many small multi-level rooms.

The Hoffman House is located at the corner of the historic Stockade district in Kingston NY, and once served as fortification and a lookout. Today the Hoffman House serves a continental fare, featuring steaks, fresh seafood, pasta specialties and homemade artisan desserts. An open-air, beautifully landscaped garden patio, enhances outdoor dining in the summer, while you can cozy up next to one of our three large stone fireplaces in the winter.

There was one major problem: They charged for soda refills! Unconscionable! Had we known we would not have had refills. That added up quickly. I am very disappointed.
