Our History

Uploaded Image: /uploads/images/romeo-family.jpgWe are honored to have been and continue to be part of the business community in the greater Albany area for the past three decades.

Our emergence from a side door Caffé into one of the most recognized and appreciated restaurants in the Capital District has been the result of hard work, dedication, consistency and originality. We take pride in noting that we have one of the largest selections of Italian specialty entrees in the business, providing a taste of old world classics that have been passed down through generations originating in Siderno, Calabria and Salerno, Naples. We serve traditional Italian favorites, such as Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Marsala, and Veal Saltimbocca, as well as original customer inspired signature dishes, such as Capellini Ala Dugan, Shrimp and Broccoli Fussili Seminario, and Veal Luciana.

Our unending quest is to honor the founders’ of Caffé Italia, our parents, Joseph and Joanne Romeo, by providing our guests with the finest quality cuisine prepared and served in a manner which is found in a traditional Italian household. To obtain maximum precision in reaching this quest, every single entree is cooked to order. This manner of cooking enables our guests to enjoy our dishes “the Romeo Way”, coupled with the opportunity to request or create their own, based on personal preferences or dietary needs.
Additionally, we would like to mention that we encourage and honor any special requests for private parties or banquets.

We extend our gratitude to everyone that has made Caffé Italia the institution that it is today. As one of our guests once said, and we continue to hear today, “It’s just like coming home”.

Thank you,
The Romeo Family
