The Belvedere has the feel of a family owned restaurant. On Easter Sunday, I was surprised with a dinner invitation. We were welcomed without reservations. The service was well timed, salads were large and fresh - perfect for salad lovers, bread was warm, lightly crisped crust, and the veal parmigiana was tender, moist, and bathed in a flavorful tomato sauce. The pasta was angel hair. Portions were large enough to take a container home for next day's lunch. No room left for dessert, but we'll come back for that. Outside dining on the Saranac River. Dining area separate from bar.

I may be a little biased writing this review as I've lived in SL for a while, but I just love this place. Quirky 80's style decor that hasn't changed since I was a kid, same menu, same delicious food. I've had quite a few things on the menu, steaks, lobster, lasagna, but I always go back to the lemon buttered broiled haddock. It's to die for, the portion is huge and you also get a salad with the best homemade blue cheese dressing, and choice of pasta (angel hair, yum) or potato/french fries. It is the best value for the money in SL. Everything is consistent each time you go. I always recommend it to people visiting from out of town, but I'm never sure if they quite "get it" as a local would.

Not bad, just not noteworthy. Overcooked pasta. Awful lighting. Noise from bar floats into dining area.

Got into town a couple of weeks ago. Thought we would try Belvedere. Ordered a fish fry. So bad. Was told by a friend who is a local that the place is changing hands. They will have their hands full.

The Belvedere is a wonderful, family owned restaurant! The Cavallo's have been serving great Italian "comfort food" for 3 generations. I love their White Clam sauce over Angel Hair. Can't go wrong with Chicken Parmesan, Lasagna or Sausage platter. Order extra Blue Cheese crumbles on your salad. Special requests are never a problem! When vacationing in Saranac Lake, we call ahead and "the Bel" is always happy to accomodate our large family. The Bel is like eating a home cooked meal with friends & family, without the work!
