“Family Italian”
Review of Picnic Pizza

Picnic Pizza
Ranked #66 of 187 Restaurants in Albany
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 November 2015

The Pizza is very good and the wait staff friendly.

We went as an extended family and it was not a problem.
The staff rearranged tables to better suit our requirements.

This is not a brick oven pizzeria and the ambiance is a bit lacking but it is still one of the best pizzas in Albany.

It's worth a try.

We were seated very quickly, even though it was fairly crowded.
The service was very good, and the food was cooked to perfection.
The price was very reasonable, and we enjoyed dining there.

We have gone to this restaurant a few times but the same issue keeps us from going back again.

Someone who works here (Management) goes outside to smoke every 5-10 minutes. You might think it is good that they go outside, but, you can not walk up to the restaurant without being engulfed in it. When someone smokes that frequently, they must not realized that the smell travels in with them and remains all around.

It is a shame because the food wasn't bad and it would have been nice to have this place on our rotations of restaurants, but every time we gave it another chance, the same thing happened.

Forget the lines at Olive Garden. You won't get as good of a meal there as you will at Picnic Pizza!!! They not only serve AUTHENTIC Italian food, they also have a wonderful family atmosphere. The service is great and the food is awesome. I highly recommend the Veal Parmesan.

Even when my son graduated from High school this was THE PLACE he wanted to go for his celebration supper. They were able to accommodate 25 people in our party. The service and the food was as fantastic as it always is.

Not only are their pasta dishes incredible, but their pizza is also by far the best you will find in Albany. We would eat here more often, but since they moved locations, we forget about them :(

By far its name does not do it justice, you don't feel like you are on a picnic, the food is delicious with friendly staff! True Italian food, not pulled out of box and warmed up! The servings were very big, if you leave hungry, its cause you left it on your plate. Very open dining room. Sits off main road in a 'strip mall' ....but don't let its looks fool you! Enjoyed very much!
