  • You all forgot about Paolo Lombardi’s in Wynantskill. Hands down the best Italian food in the area.

    • I don’t disagree that there are some great places missing but these were the places listed when I asked on Facebook/Instagram. I’ll have to bring it back again soon because there are so many other places people are mentioning that didn’t make this list!
