We hadn’t been here for dinner in a few years and decided to give it another try. We started with the Caesar salad and arancini. The Caesar salad was large enough to split but the dressing lacked flavor. A little salt/pepper helped with that. The...More

Great little italian restaurant. The portions are very generous and the service was friendly and quite fast. The only thing i did not like was that the menu is small but delicious.

Excellent choices for typical Italian cuisine with a bit of a flare. All dishes were well prepared. The house made sausage was excellent. Service was lacking from hostile to waiter. While the busboy was attentive with bread and water as son as we sat down,...More

Typical modern restaurant. Very noisy inside so we are on the porch which was more conducive for conversation. Caesar salad was missing something as it did not have much flavor. Entrees were very good. Service was good but delivery was slow, mainly because of the...More

No. Not at all. If it's cool and they put you on the porch, bring a jacket.

Description
Anchoring Saratoga's vibrant downtown Forno Bistro is a family-owned bistro that offers a variety of rustic, Tuscan-style food rooted in tradition. Our chef's use only the freshest seasonal ingredients to prepare dishes with respect to their flavors, appearance and aroma. The menu is sophisticated but approachable, expressing the sense of hearth and home that defines the Tuscan style of life. Forno Bistro's rustic, Tuscan-style food is hearty and unpretentious with sophisticated flavors rooted in tradition and always open to new interpretations and adaptations. Many of our dishes are greatly influenced by the use of the wood-fired oven: homemade pizzas, sauteed calamari, and wood-fired towers of vegetables. The oven is always the inspiration.
