The food was outstanding. Service was good, but the smell of sewage was overwhelming. Too bad. It smelled like I was sitting in a filthy bathroom. It hit me in the face as I walked in the front door.. Really do not know why we stayed.

Small dining room but the chef/owner does a great joy of preparing the food. Pizza is great, Scallops are top notch.

Don't miss this place. Don't be afraid about the lack of expensive ambience. The food is freakin' fantastic and Mike is an excellent host. We came on a Sunday evening (no wait). I had the special, seafood risotto paired with a Chatham IPA. Scallops, shrimp and salmon on top of the risotto. All perfectly done. It is so easy to... More

So there are only 7-8 tables in the back. If you show up after 5:30, you are probably going to wait a few minutes. This is a quaint, no frills place. Foods excellent! Loved the antipasto platter! 2 of us had broiled seafood platter, very good. Mother in law had pasta w red clam sauce, she really enjoyed it! Husband... More

This was by far the best restaurant meal that we have had in a long time! I had the lemon chicken and shrimp. Dining partners had a veal Sorrento (which was a special that the chef created for him), Zuppa di pesc, and pizza. All of these were very good to excellent. The antipasto was excellent as well as beautifully... More

The location is a little unsettling and the condition of the place is not good but the food shines bright! I did not like the smell of the place due to it smelling like urine in the dining room, but it was better after food started getting cooked. We had the greens, and stuffed mushrooms to start and neither of... More

Who would expect the such great food from a place that's been around for so long?! Took the dads there for Father's Day and as we've experienced in the past, the food was awesome. We had rib eyes and lasagna and zuppa Di pesce and scallops and chicken and shrimp. All the meals were quite large and delicious. The parents... More

My wife and I had a late dinner last night at Joe's Tavern in Cohoes, NY. We were the only ones in the restaurant part of the tavern (the bar was bustling), but the staff was more than happy to serve us. The Italian food is excellent! Great tasting, hot, and generous portions. The loaf of bread served with the... More
