"Avoid This Town (except Cugini)" Albany by Basaic
Albany Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 31 photos
Albany is located next to Berkeley. They even share a part of Solano Avenue a street with trendy, interesting shops and good ethnic retsurants. Unfortunately for Albany, all the interesting places are in Berkeley NOT Albany. As a matter of fact the only place I saw worth stopping in the town is Cugini. And like a child with a much more popular sibling, Albany takes its ire out on everyone else. On Solano Avenue they have 90 minute parking so you have to move your car every 85 minutes or so. They do not mean 91 minutes. Like a vulture they wait for the moment you have gone over 90 minutes to give you a $38 (as of September 2009) parking ticket. If you arrive at 91 minutes to move your car, "sorry"!
My recommendation, park in Berkeley and walk across the street to Cugini or just skip the town altogether.
Cugini is a nice Italian Ristorante in the bad town of Albany. Thankfully it is right across Solano Avenue from... more travel advice
