“All Alone In Saratoga”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a very small restaurant which is chef owned, the chef who has creativity and talent that exceeds any dining experience in this city. When you can be fortunate enough to dine in a restaurant that has the chef with his talent having something to do with every dish that goes to the dining room the customers can easily tell they are in for a great dining experience.
I have never been anything but pleased with my trips to this restaurant, food is always of the highest quality combined with creative touches to make the food tast great.
A very well run operation.

“A Must in Saratoga Springs!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Dined with friends at Mio Posto and the meal was outstanding! Service was excellent and the attention we received exceeded our expectations. Chef Danny Petrosino has to be one of the best chefs in the area. His resume has a long list of accomplishments but his cooking in this restaurant with its select menu exceeded our expectations and that was very high!
We had a variety of entrees and each was prepared with the Chef's talent for fine dining! Make sure you save room for desserts! The wine menu was carefully selected and our choice was outstanding. With only eight tables a reservation is a must and you will not be disappointed!

“Great Place”

If you're looking for an intimate and small restaurant with great food, then this is the place for you! Also, the wine list is quite reasonable.

“Absolutely Excellent!!!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I asked Trip Advisor to put Mio Posto on their site for good reason! Mio Posto is a very small restaurant with no bar - cannot be more than 10 tables in the place but HOLY COW is it GOOD! We went with no reservation with a party of 3 for dinner on a Friday evening in early September. We got right in however, it was by pure luck! We have since tried with no reservations and were turned away:( The place was filled within minutes of arriving round 5pm. The waitstaff was very prompt taking our drink orders. We did have alcoholic beverages even though there is no bar to sit at. For apps we ordered the "special" shrimp and the eggplant. Delicious! For entrees we ordered the "special" veal chop, the pasta with mixed meat and red sauce, and the broccoli rabe pasta. Wonderful! This place is a bit pricey but well worth it! If there was something I could find upsetting about this place (even though it's hard) it would be that it could get a little smokey because the kitchen is open to the dining area. BUT overall, not an issue! This place is the best in Saratoga and I've been to a lot! Great Job Mio Posto!!!! See you soon!!!
