It's always a special treat to eat at Daphne's. I was impressed with the wine list - it seems to have expanded. I would have liked to see more by the glass offerings. The food was excellent, as usual, and the portions very generous. We will be back!

I have eaten at Emmy Squared three times and their pizza is outstanding! The people who were there with me also loved the pizza and the Caesar salad. It is not a fancy restaurant but it is an old building with charm. We have always been seated in the larger of the rooms and it is quite noisy even with just general conversation even when the room is not at full capacity. The servers are all efficient and knowledgeable about the menu. Last night our server was Emily and she was attentive and offered helpful advice. The food is delivered quite quickly. I know food prices are increasing every day, but Emmy Squared seems a little expensive. The salads seemed reasonably priced but $21.00 for a pizza and $15.00 for 5 mozzarella cheese sticks seems a little steep.

About the restaurant
Bianca's Restaurant is fine dining in Northwest Albany offering pasta, steak, seafood, pizza and more. The menu offers mouthwatering everyday options along with amazing daily specials created by our talented chef. The dessert menu is tempting to anyone with or without a sweet tooth, it's just that good! The cozy, upscale atmosphere paired with the extensive wine list makes you feel like you aren't in South Georgia, but the friendly staff reminds you that you are and definitely makes you feel like family!
