The head chef and owner does a wonderful pasta buffet every Friday night. Our party of 8 sat outside on a beautiful summer night, and stuffed ourselves silly with delicious salads and pasta dishes cooked to order. Wish I lived closer!

Can't ask for a more accommodating and friendly chef than chef Francis. Endless combinations with the pasta bar. Items are always very fresh. We have been here several times- it has consistently good quality- delicious every time. Try Captain Morgan in a spicy sauce! Yum!

I am new to eating gluten free breads but I have found most are not very appetizing. With that being said, the gluten free turkey tarragon sandwich I had from here was hands down one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. The gluten free fuccaci is excellent.

Well, at least for New Year's Eve it was. Headed over to the Gourmet Café for dinner after a hockey game at the GFCC and saw they had the pasta bar set up. 40 different sauces, all cooked to your specifications right in front of you, with your choice of ingredients and pasta types! Fresh veggies, garlic, pestos (all homemade, including an incredible Mediterranean eggplant pesto), homemade chicken sausage, meatballs, shrimp, scallops, crab .... the combinations were endless, all whipped up right in front of you. Great deal that included soup or salad, and all-you-can-eat. As mentioned in other reviews, you're not going here for the ambiance. It's just OK, but the food is excellent. Homemade chocolate cake (made with pureed beets in the batter for an unmatched moistness) which chocolate cream cheese frosting. Great food.

My family absolutely loves pasta night. My 16 year old son wants to go there for his birthday every year. Chef Francis prepares the dishes right in front of you and he is always helpful if you dont know what food or sauce would go good together. It is one of our favorite stops in Glens Falls.
