The restaurant is located on Lake Saranac( a 10 minute walk from the Lake Flower Inn). I had the eggplant parm., and my husband had the fish special, which were both delicious! They have a good beer and wine list and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Our waiter was fantastic!!

We had a great lunch sitting outside. The service was good and friendly. The food was excellent. Each of us ordered different panini and they were all rated highly. A good stop.

Nonna Fina's outdoor seating provides a beautiful view of Saranac Lake. The food and location are both excellent. As a result, the places gets busy, and they are somewhat understaffed. We went there 3 times, the first two were great, the last was a disaster on account of an inexperienced server. Christine, the bartender, makes up for it with a... More

We had amazing service while at Nonnas but the food was not that great. Had pasta carbonara and it was drenched in cream sauce with dry, cubes of prosciutto. Will go to Little Italy for pasta next time. :(

Upon recommendation from our motel owners my husband and I had dinner here recently. It left a lot to be desired. My husband ordered a New York strip steak medium rare, the steak came medium well. He said it wasn't bad though not cooked properly. I ordered a Cesar salad with salmon. The salmon was tiny. The salad had wilted... More

My husband and I had dinner here and were a little disappointed with both of our meals. The fresh bread has some seasonings (maybe rosemary and sage, not sure) that I do not care for, but my husband thought was excellent. The salads have nice, fresh romaine lettuce, but again, there was a seasoning used in the salad dressing that... More

2nd time here, food and service still great. I am still amazed that this place was a burger king you can't tell from inside or outside (except for drive thru window). Amazing transformation. Walking distance from the Partridge Cottage House

Every time we come up north we look forward to coming here. Nice ambiance, great food, great service. The prices are decent for the meals we have gotten. Often we have gotten the specials and they were just right.

The prices are above average the service was excellent. There was little ambiance, but that seems to be the case with roads that have been under construction for what ? 25 years? They can't make a whiskey sour ( not many can anymore) Prices are too high to bring kids. But it was a good experience.

The staff was great, but the food was so so. Eggplant Parm was greasy and tasteless. The Veggie Lasagne was pretty good, but nothing we ate was fantastic. The marinara sauce was again pretty good. Probably a "safe" place to get mediocre food, but don't expect to be Wow'ed.
