Our History

Welcome to Caffe Italia

The Romeo Family

We are honored to have been, and continue to be, a part of the business community in the capital region since 1975. Spanning over three generations, we have grown from a side door caffe situated on Central Avenue, into one of the most recognized and appreciated restaurants in the Albany area. This is attributed to a culmination of dedication, consistency and ingenuity.

We take great pride in providing a taste of old world classics originating in Siderno, Calabria, and Salerno, Naples. Inspired by our founders, our parents, Joseph and Joanne Romeo, we strive to provide our guests with the finest quality cuisine prepared in a manner which is reminiscent of a traditional Italian household.

Our approach to creating every entree made to order, “The Romeo Way,” affords our guests the ability to personalize their selections based on preference and dietary needs. We encourage and honor requests for special events.

We extend our gratitude to everyone that has made Caffe Italia the institution it is today. Famously quoted by one of our guests, “its just like coming home.”

Thank you,
The Romeo Family

Buon Appetito!
