Starting Wednesday, June 10th, the ☀ PATIO WILL OPEN FOR DINNER ☀️ at a limited capacity seating.

Finally! We are so glad to announce that Grappa '72 will resume outdoor dine-in service once again.

We've certainly missed all of you and can't wait to see all our Grappa friends and family. The re-opening of patio service (for regular dinner hours) marks the coming of good things ahead, including the eventual transition towards full service. Of course, our to-go ordering service will still be running for those of us who'd prefer to dine at home.

Our staff will be taking all precautionary measures and following all Phase 2 recommendations for cleaning and sanitation. Please feel free to walk-in, or call us for reservations and any questions you may have.

To our beloved Grappa family,

In light of the recent statewide Covid-19 legislation, we will only be able to serve our community through pick-up orders with dine-in services being temporarily suspended until the situation improves.

We hope you all stay healthy and hope that our treasured community will keep their spirits high during these times. Please check back again for our revised hours of operation, as well as upcoming new specials we will be offering for our pick-up orders, including but not limited to complementary bottles of wine for certain orders.

Ron Kohn Memorial Day

We would like to thank everyone who attended the swaray this weekend in the memory of Ron Kohn, and that includes: ALL OF YOU, Franklin and Chris for the entertainment, and the members of Grappa '72 that donated their time and their TIPS to make the event such a success. With your generosity, we managed to raise $2600.00 for 15 LOVE, which will help them tremendously given that the coffers have been strained since the passing of our good friend, not to mention their major fund raiser for the year was rained out three times. So, for anyone that missed the event, but would still like to make a donation, please send checks to:

15-LOVE
785 Washington Ave.
Albany, NY 12206

Tel: (518) 438-2039

Again, we would like to thank all of you and look forward to seeing you at the restaurant or around town.

SO, UNTIL NEXT YEAR ~ WE LOVE YOU RON!

The food is phenomenal, best penne vodka ever had. Ordered for pick up few times. Went in to pick up and staff were so kind showed the areas to eat. We stumbled on by accident but looking forward to eating in. Very cozy and so good for take out so can’t imagine the eat in. A hidden gem!
Picked up a wonderful dinner for two and as always it was fantastic!!... Keep up the great work and hang in there...
Excellent. They served me well with a delicious filet and a Chianti that makes me wonder why I don't order Chianti more often. The owner/manager personally seated me and asked about my experience, a live band played through my entire meal. It's a great find and easy to miss off of Central ave in Albany.
I went there yesterday for my nieces’ graduation, not only was the decor beautiful and elegantly done, but the food and the service and the food was amazing. As an appetizer We I ordered the Portobello Napoleo, portobello mushrooms served with tomatoes and goat cheese and a balsamic vinaigrette. It was so good and we all tried each other’s appetizers and everyone loved it! For my main dish i ordered the Vongole. It was sooooo good! The portions were very generous and I didn’t think I’d finish it, but I did! Every single bite! It was perfect! I rarely order dessert, but they make them homemade and I couldn’t resist! I had the Tiramisu! Again, delicious and nothing was left on the plate! I did not get our waiters name, but he did tell us that he was a scuba diver. Dude, you were awesome and so attentive! Thank you! To the chef, you are soo awesome! We loved the place and I can’t wait to go there again when I return to the area! The prices are very fair as well!!!!! Here’s a pic that I took of the walk behind us! An extensive selection of wine!
As always, DELICIOUS! Thank you for a beautiful dinner last night with exceptional service! 👍👍👍👍
My husband and I celebrated another pair of anniversaries last night (1/11/19): the 15th anniversary of our first date and the 13th of our engagement. We have never been disappointed and last night was no exception. I had the tomato-basil bisque (special) and my husband had the salmon carpaccio. Both were outstanding. For our entrees my husband had the veal tenderloin (special) and I had the veal with shrimp and mushrooms. All we can say is “Yummy!” The service and attention to detail were just as we have always experienced: outstanding! Can’t wait for next year’s anniversaries but who knows, maybe we’ll be back before then! Thanks again for a wonderful dinner!
Thank you for supporting A Taste of Albany 2018! You are the key ingredient to a successful event!
Armand, we had a wonderful dinner, as usual last evening. Our server Marius was fantastic with all the attention that he gave to us. He explained the specials & answered all of our questions with a smile. It is always a pleasure coming here. Thank you for your fine service, we will be back again soon.
My first visit there, outstanding meal and service I'll be back
Great place to eat...💕😜
