Beautiful restaurant

My significant other and I were promptly shown a table, menu and our drink and food orders were taken. Our drinks were quick to arrive and our mouth-watering garlic and cheese bread were soon devoured. The entrees, my chicken pomodoro and my significant others' lasagna, arrived after waiting for... read more

Wow! Where do we start with this place. The view of Lake Flowers from the outside tables is wonderful. That is the end of anything positive. Service is terrible, the food is terrible and the honesty is in question. The salad was OK. After that everything was downhill. We ordered an appetizer, but after the main course was served, we...

My friend and I decided to try the Sunday Brunch Buffet at the Nonna Fina Pasta-Grill in Saranac Lake. We were disappointed with our experience and would not go there again. The primary problem was our waitress who was practically a no-show. It was the worst service we’ve had in years. Even when she brought our check, rather than ask... More

Return visit(s). Ate there two nights in a row. The food is excellent and there are many choices from the basic Italian fare. Our waitstaff was helpful and very pleasant. Our meals remained hot until we could eat no more! There is a beautiful view of the Lake from the outside dining area. This restaurant is on our "must visit"... More

Our drinks were quick to arrive and our mouth-watering garlic and cheese bread were soon devoured.

Enjoyed a nice lunch on the patio overlooking Lake Flower. The daily specials were great - we tried the chicken wrap with garlic Parmesan dressing - yum! Had a nice glass of moscato (better than I've had in most local restaurants) with my meal. Friendly staff, although our waitress was in training mode and didn't ask us how our meal... More

A terrific restaurant in the heart of Saranac Lake offering fine authentic Italian cuisine including a wide selection of pasta dishes and pizza. Not in the mood for Italian? No problem as a variety of fish and meat dishes are also offered diners. Lovely little bar that offers up a fine selection of wine and spirits along with a bar... More

The excellent service stood out considering the "small town feel" of this place. Both the pasta dishes and steak were great. Pricing was excellent for the quality of the food and service. Another thing that stood out was lack of ear-splitting noise common in so many restaurants these days. I could comfortably talk with my guests. Will certainly go there... More

Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Saranac Lake/Lake Placid. In the summer months there is an amazing view of Lake Flower. You can sit on the outdoor patio and just soak in the gorgeous sun and views of Lake Flower while drinking down chilled peroni's fresh off the tap. In the winter months the restaurant sits across the street... More
