Showed up for dinner on a Sunday night with no reservation and were warmly greeted and promptly seated at a preferred outside table on the deck. Bargain priced martinis were good...emphasis on "dry". We enjoyed salads, warm bread and then entrees. The veal Saltimbuca was superb...our waitress, a recent transplant from New York City looking for a better life for... More

We had a great dinner! Service wasn't great but the food and outdoor seating made up for it! Alfredo was great and bread was awesome!

We were treated to fine Italian, more than ample portions, great service and a beautiful view of the Lake as we dined on the out front patio. Great ownership and very classy.

Scrumptious Italian cuisine served in a cozy atmosphere. In the summer you can sit on the patio with a gorgeous view of Lake Flower and the mountains. Staff is very friendly and efficient!

Huge portions, be prepared to share. Had the haddock Italiano it was quite tasty I could have fed three people! Perrone was cold and delicious service was pretty good.

....Exterior of restaurant still includes a drive-thru window from earlier days as a burger joint. The remodeled interior is inviting - and location across from lake is nice, too. ...Unfortunately, our dinners were a disappointment. Started with salads that were piles of very wet lettuce, with 2 olives, 2 cherry tomatoes & a splash of onion. ...Our Italian meals were... More

The exterior and interior of this restaurant is very nice and given that Saranac Lake doesn't have many non chain restaurants, we thought we had found the best in the area. Big mistake! Even the house salad was a disappointment - lettuce with two cherry tomatoes! My mussels were buried in so much sauce they were hard to find. The... More

Beautiful view but not very memorable food. I had chicken marsala that wasw rather bland and my husband's pasta also rather bland. the salad had too much water floating in it. The antipasto was also bland.

Had a great steak ribeye special with a glass of wine and a view. What else could you ask for! Overall a great experience for me personally. Staff was friendly and... More

Went to lunch and the place was not busy. We were sat right away on the outside patio and the bus boy brought us water and bread. The view of Lake Flower could be seen from the patio. Sony our server was pleasant and checked on us several times throughout our meals. We started with the calamari which the seasoning... More
