Rating Caffe Italia I would give it a 91/2. My date, and I had a lovely experience from our Super Tuscan wine, to my double expresso. We enjoyed the plump juicy mussels in a red sauce, and then moved on to a very fresh dinner salad w/ gorgonzola. Our entree was Veal cacciatore with a red sauce which was so delicious we soaked it up with the dinner bread which could have been more crusty. Outside of feeling a little cramped by the window table it was experience I look forward to repeating. I must mention the service, which was great. Attentive, but not over done.

I have been going to Grandma's for years, anytime I come up to Albany I HAVE to stop by. The food is great, the service fast and very friendly. I love the fact that at every holiday they deck the restaurant out to the max without making it look tacky. And you have to try their pies they are to die for!! The atmosphere makes you feel like your coming home. A++
Not bad for a chain restuarant, you get what you pay for and they have enough options for you to find something you like. Kid Friendly too. Prices are very fair. Doable, but not romantic by any means...A lunch with work frends type of place or if you have a time constraint.
