A renovated historic gem, Rosanna’s inherits 41 years of Italian-American context from beloved predecessor Bongiorno’s while twirling up fresh, playful creations amid candlelit cocktails and a retro-glam vibe. The latest addition to Albany’s Center Square, Rosanna’s sets the scene for date night on the block or an intimate gathering of friends old and new. Dine outdoors on our patio or in one of our 3 unique indoor spaces.
Our menu reimagines Old World Italian fare with a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients and stimulating twists. Enjoy flavor-forward small plates like Farro Salad and Meatballs Polenta, a lineup of shareworthy pastas like our Ravioli alla Rosanna, and savory mains like Zuppa di Pesce and Chicken Parmigiana.
Our historic property has been an Albany landmark for 175 years and a restaurant for the last 90. That’s why it took 15 months of careful restoration to bring you Rosanna’s– a true labor of love.
In 1978, first generation Italian immigrants Felix and Rosanna Bongiorno purchased 23 Dove Street and debuted their namesake restaurant, Bongiorno’s. Their partnership remains a legacy in the Albany restaurant scene. Rosanna’s is a tribute to their 41-year tenure.
