We were seated in the bar area - very loud. We were yelling across the table to speak to one another. When I asked to change tables I was told tables in the back were reserved - I HAD A RESERVATION TOO. Food was mediocre - service was mediocre.

Great pizza, great southern Italian food, and an excellent bakery. We have been here several times for pizza, pasta, meat, and dessert.

Took the family here while visiting Saratoga. Read the reviews on here and decided to give it a try. We were a little taken back when we pulled into the little strip mall next to Advance Auto Parts and went inside. We were taken to a room in the back and everything took shape from there. The waiter was fantastic,... More

A very busy place during the track season but for locals, the best times are lunch time and non weekend. All homemade dishes and very good pizza! Save room for some of the best homemade pastries, cookies, and cakes.

This was a great surprise! I will be returning a few more times during my visit to Saratoga. Everything taste homemade and the service was good. The atmosphere was casual but nice. PROS: Fried artichokes Chicken piccata Pasta w/ oil and garlic Clams Oreganata Eggplant Parmesan CONS: Mussels' portion was on the smaller side for $11.00.

Great food and very authentic. I had an artichoke "francese" appetizer that was tender and delicious. Another couple had Chicken Parm and said it was the best they ever had. Fast service and that was while it was very crowded. A good experience.

Authenic Italian - Homestyle! Great menu selection, hard to decide what to order. Food is very well prepared. Great Pizza and Pasta, excellent portions - what else can you say. When in Saratoga Springs, New York, this restaurant be sure you come and dine, you will not be disappointed! There is gluten free Penne Pasta and Pizza.

Grabbed a chance to have lunch today while meeting a colleague to talk. Thought that it might be a good time to go - the horse racing season starts in a couple of days, and good restaurants like this are a always busy. This restaurant serves very good Italian food at very reasonable prices. Lunch is a great time to... More

Quick and friendly service with reasonably priced food. I had the fish special and it was excellent. The calamari appetizer wasn't anything special, but it wasn't bad.
