I have eaten there a few times & the food is very good... I feel that you get plenty of food for the price & it is a nice atmosphere... I was hesitant to try eating there at first because I felt it was a bit too upscale for me since I am more of a greasy spoon type of... More

We are locals and have eaten here on many different occasions. During April schools are closed for 2 weeks and many places close for a week - so call before you head out. The staff is friendly and large enough portions if you have an either soup or appetizer before the main entrée. Dress is casual.

I recently moved to Saranac Lake and my girlfriend and I decided to come here for a romantic date night because she has a severe gluten allergy and this place seemed to be a good option for gluten free pasta. After stressing that her order should be gluten free (the waiter even went back to check) a plate of regular... More

We are local to the Saranac Lake area and dined at Nonna Fina a few years ago. At the time, we were underwhelmed. The food was okay. Nothing remarkable. More recently, we thought we would give the restaurant another try, mostly because we wanted to see the Ice Palace and it was cold out, and Nonna Fina is directly across... More

My family dined here last week before going to the ice castle. We were a party of six. Food was okay but we wouldn't go back. Everything seemed a bit bland and lacking all around. Quantity was good. Service was barely okay. Our food took a long time to come. After our salads it took a long time for them... More

We went to Saranac Lake while staying in Lake Placid to see the "Ice Palace". We intended on going back to L.P. and eating at one of the many restaurants there, but Nonna Fina was directly across from the palace so it seemed more convenient. We made a good choice. The food was delicious and plentiful. The drinks were good... More

We have always had a good meal at Nonna Fina. This time it was Capellini Pomodoro for me and Penne Vodka for my husband. Plus warm rolls, crispy fresh salad, generous glass of wine, good coffee - what more can you want?

We were in Wilmington, and decided to go to Saranac Lake instead of the usual Lake Placid restaurants for a change and because of the good reviews in TA for this restaurant. The food costs as much as the Hungry Trout where we stayed, but it is definitely not worth the 20 some miles trip. The setting is nice and... More
