Tardelli's is a very nice and cozy restaurant in the center of Potsdam. The outside looks a bit gaudy with a huge festive sign and beat up parking lot, but inside there is a nice fireplace and the decor is a little better than expected. Here they prepare many Italian inspired dishes- with your choice of pasta type and sauce. The pasta is not the best (probably from a box), but the marinara is not half bad with huge chunks of tomato and garlic. They have a full liquor licence, good service, and low prices (when considering I'm comparing it to Boston and NYC Italian). All in all it's quite nice.
