We had a light dinner at this place at the suggestion of a local merchant. Nice spot. We ate outside and enjoyed ourselves until the mosquitoes arrived around 9pm. The pizzas were creative and excellent. Service was good and kitchen quickly responded to our only food problem.

Food was bland with extremely small portions. There is a limited menu. Definitely not worth the price.

Four of us went to dinner there during race season. Our dinner was fantastic from start to finish. Our waitress Kelly was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. Cocktails were generously poored, and the food was excellent. I would definitely recommend this place!

A group of six, we have eaten at this restaurant previously and have enjoyed our meals. This visit, we had ample samplings of foods. Appetizers such as stuffed clams, beet salad, vegetable antipasto, meatballs. Entree's such as Spaghetti Frutti Di Mare, Braised Beef in a red wine reduction, Delmonico Steaks, Striped Bass. The Braised Beef, Striped Bass were excellent. The Friutti de Mare was very good and the Delmonicos fell short. The latter were quite fatty and lacked overall richness and had an overall grayish hue to them. The beet salad was adequate, the stuffed clams lacked seasoning and a richness, nor did they have a crunchy brown topping which could have lent more flavor to the otherwise bland, breading concoction. The meatballs were very good. We ate early, 6:30PM, after a major stakes race at Saratoga Springs Race track and it was a pleasant, quiet atmosphere before the hordes of people descended for dinner. We will be returning to Sarataog for another upcoming major stakes race and most likely we will patronize another restaurant for dinner. Staff were very pleasant and prompt.

we stopped by this small restaurant off of the main drag last weekend and had one of the best meals of our lives. the owner uses food from local farms as much as possible and the freshness is evident. the stuffed eggplant and fish dishes we had were outstanding, the flourless chocolate cake delicious. service very good and people warm and friendly.
