Have fun al fresco with Bella Saratoga outside or in. Great for lunch with girlfriends, too. I've been more times than I can count...

What better place for a summer dinner on the patio? Bella Saratoga - both the venue and the food has gone through several iterations. And it's still good. Saturday evening guitarist serenade. Pretty much everyone has the cioppino. Key Lime pie was the best ever. We all lived happily ever after.

We had a late breakfast on the porch of this 100 year old house that reminded me of times I've broken fast at a nonna's trattoria. The street is a thoroughfare that motorcycles love to use to ride the ridge line that rises above the town. So, there were the occasional roars. But, this noise was offset by the gentle... More

We love to come to this restaurant on special occasions. The food is very good and the atmosphere can be very private (almost like your own dining room) if you sit on the second floor or very California-like if you sit on the patio outside. Plenty of parking behind. Italian food at its best. This place has been around for... More

Food is OK, place is a little out dated. But I really liked the brunch in terrace, so nice and peaceful, with live music too.

Be it patio or indoors, make reservations and sit back and enjoy great food, service and wine. Portions are reasonable so that you can have a salad or appetizer. Wine list is not large but the wait staff knows it well. Lots of boutique wines that will surprise and delight.

After lots of heavy meals and large portions, and a long day on the road, we stopped here purely by chance as driving through Saratoga and thought it looked beautiful and stopped for a wander. The restaurant looked so charming from the outside and it's gentle non-intrusive live music created a lovely atmosphere we decided to eat there. Service was... More

Bella Saratoga has been a "go to" place of ours for years when we have out-of-town guests or are celebrating a family birthday. The outdoor dining for brunch or lunch is so fun; it's airy and light and you can people-watch. Service is always friendly and attentive. We've also eaten here many times on cold, winter nights and found the... More
