Schenectady Eats: Villa Italia

If you’ve ever been to Proctors Theater, you may have noticed a little bakery very close by. I always thought Villa Italia in Schenectady [226 Broadway Schenectady, NY 12308] would be packed on show nights, but I was on a mission for some dessert so I dared to go in. It was indeed packed though shortly after grabbing a number on the bakery line it was called. After receiving my order I found a table. Things just seemed to work out here. I got the chocolate mousse mouse, and wow, this is the kind of mouse you would want in your house.
