This meal at Mezza Notte was like all the others, excellent. We have eaten there at least 8 times over the past few years. Anytime we have important visitors we prefer to take them to Mezza Notte. The food is the closest to true Northern Italian food we have ever found in the States. The duck meatballs appetizer is out of this world tasty! More

Speakeasy | Albany, Upstate New York

I found out about Speakeasy 518 by an internet search for a good jazz club. My wife and I went this weekend and we absolutely loved the Speakeasy. The ambiance, from the “in the know” entry to the no cell phone policy and period dress of the staff made for a great experience. The jazz and swing music were exactly what We were looking for. Food and drinks were fantastic and the staff was friendly, personable and helpful. We will definitely be going back and recommending to friends. More

American | Albany, Upstate New York

I felt my family and I were WELL taken care of. My children have severe food allergies and I am a RN. I felt this staff was meticulous about how they recognize and accommodate food allergies. Even going so far as to have the manager deliver the dishes specially and specifically prepared for each child. Because of this and the staff being more then friendly and professional I have been back several times since. I can not say enough about the staff and the food quality. We live on a homestead so we rarely eat out. This was a warm welcoming to the possibility that we really can eat safely at other places. This restaurant is a five star plus plus plus. More

My bf and I enjoyed a great meal, and our waiter was attentive, fun and knowledgeable. Unfortunately I have forgotten his name because of the events at the end of our meal. My bf fainted and fell when he got up from the table, and the staff assisted immediately to help him and to see if further medical help might be needed. Fortunately he was ok- a little wobbly & woozy, but we made it home ok. In the aftermath I have forgotten our waiter’s name, but he was great and treated us kindly. We appreciated the attention all around us! Thank you and all is well. More
