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

Good food, but overpriced for what you get. Used to come for special occasions, but last time the service was just absent mostly and the prices have gone through the roof. Just not a good enough experience for the price.

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

Very good menu with excellent food and good service all around. The menu has some odd pricing in that the lamb chops were expensive but the shrimp/scallop pasta was very reasonable and very good.

I can see this place can be fantastic on a nice day or evening. We visited on a cloudy, cold night. So we sat inside, problem was the room were kind of small and sound travel very well. IF you have a group of other patrons having fun aided by a few good cheers, and you are longing for a... More

Decent food but best is the setting. In the heart of downtown Saratoga. In good weather choose outdoor seating. Good people watching!

It was great to finally see historic downtown Saratoga. We came to enjoy some wine tasting and ended up walking around a bit. It was late in the afternoon when we decided to stop and grab a bite at Bella's. The place seems like an old converted house or hotel, super cute on the inside. We sat on the patio... More
