I love Cugini's. The food is very good. The pizza is my favorite. Service is great. Any time I am in Albany I stop at Cugini's

Great place to eat Italian food ?, one of the best if not best customer service. Definitely recommend the crab ravioli but you cannot go wrong with any dish on the menu. Amazing!!

Delicious, relaxing and romantic setting with a superb menu. Cugini is surviving COVID through demonstrated, consistent, friendly and professional hospitality both onsite and for pick-up clientele.

I am not quite sure why folks didn't review this place higher but I do respect that everyone's experience is different. I was craving clams and decided to find a place that delivered them. Wow. I ordered the Linguini and a separate order of the steamed clams. Just fantastic.I definitely will be ordering from them again.

Pricey but tasty. Happy hour menu has some good offerings but we ordered off the regular menu. Pizza was very good pesto raviolis were a hit risotto was delicious.

During COVID, it really is quite a treat to be able to enjoy a meal out. It's even better when the food is outstanding. We ate out al fresco and to battle the chill, we had some garlic bread - strong enough to breathe a little fire! The pesto gnocchi was so good - the flavors of the pesto ingredients were so distinct! My wife had pizza and we both thought it was delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed it and glad we didn't eat out of plastic containers in the hotel!!

Stopped in here on our way back home from Sonoma to home in southern CA. We had the garlic bread starter; lots of fresh garlic, cheese, parsley and toasted in the brick oven. The pizza I had was amazing; it had red sauce, artichokes, tomatoes, cheese & prosciutto. Super yummy!! My husband had the pesto gnocchi, the pesto tasted freshly made and had a wonderful balance of the basil and pine nut flavors. Super friendly and helpful service. They have a couple of tables for outside service and also do take out. Not sure in delivery, but I think they work with a few apps like ubereats. A wonderful small restaurant to enjoy a meal at and support, whether there is a national pandemic or not!

I am so glad that this bar and restaurant has happy hour daily between 3-5 , they used to be closed during these hours.They have tables on a side walk where you can eat or drink This is my Italian comfort food place I enjoy their Cocktails as well . It is like an oasis in these difficult times

Only started coming here recently but have definitely enjoyed! My fiancé and I are from New Jersey and grew up spoiled when it comes to Italian Food. Compared to what we're used to from back East, Cuginis definitely delivers for a local mid-range priced Italian restaurant. Ingredients are fresh and they've done well with what we've tried. Service has also been super fast and staff very kind. Will definitely be returning.

Wow just wow. We have been ordering from local restaurants during the shelter in place and this place is a notch above the rest. Portions are huge! I'm not sure I have ever seen the stuffed artichoke before but man was it tasty! Definitely recommend for take out you won't be disappointed
