Located on New Scotland Avenue in Albany, NY, Restaurant Navona opened its doors in early 2016. Their philosophy is simple: to provide honest and delicious dishes in an inviting atmosphere.

Welcome to Restaurant Navona

Chef and co-owner of Restaurant Navona Mike Niccoli specializes in Mediterranean and Modern Italian cuisine, with an emphasis on freshness and wood-fired fare. At Navona, many of the menu items involve their wood-fired oven, which helps boost the flavor and retain nutrients.

In addition to their wood-fired pizza, the restaurant offers a wide variety of small plates, pasta dishes, entrees, and more. Navona's draught beer selection is always changing, but the bar always includes 16 options, many from local craft breweries.

My favorite wood fired pizza in Albany - and they have great gluten free options as well. Perfect place to sit and enjoy a martini - on a cold evening by the fireplace or spring day on the terrace.
