With track season less than two weeks away, looking for a new restaurant (Italian Fare) in Saratoga Springs to spend a quant weekend night for good food and wine!
A friend said his party had a great meal at this restaurant and you won’t be disappointed! Doing the impossible, a reservation on a weekend night proved to be my lucky day. Was able to secure one and decided to have a dinner a little bit past my norm.
Arrived and my table awaited me after a very cordial greeting by the hostess! Asked us if we have been here before and we admitted no! She said our server Michael will be with us shortly and you will be very pleased. Menus were given to us and very extensive, along with pizza prepared in a wood fired oven! Michael arrived, a real pro, who knows the restaurant business and customer service oriented. Decided on wine and took his suggestion to start! Decided on a red California blend that was excellent! He reviewed the menu with us and I settled on the Pappardelle alla bolognese and my companion selected Lasagna Vegetariana di Melanzane.
Both dishes endorsed highly by our server Michael! We also wanted salad and again the recommendation was order only one Insalata Mista Taverna! Enough for two!
Bread arrived and it was excellent! Also the owner, Patti came to our table to say hello and welcome us! A real class lady, who knows her business!
Shortly thereafter the chef delivered our entrees! A nice added touch and also welcomed us! The entrees did not disappoint—“eccellente”! Portion size was more than enough! Michael continued to check on us!
It was so good that we left nothing on our plates! Companion wanted to try the chocolate cake, flourless and it was outstanding!
This is a go to restaurant that will make your journey worthwhile! A great addition to the restaurant scene in Saratoga, affordably priced, great food and outstanding service! Ask for Michael and let him guide you through this experience! Next time we would like to sit on their patio and looking forward to a return visit!
Have eaten in many restaurants around the world and this rates very high on my list, and usually Uncle Mo doesn’t miss the mark!
