All meals that I have eaten here have been delicious. The last meal I ate here was lunch. We had the cappers salad and a pizza. The cappers salad had fresh tomatoes from the owners garden. It was very tasty. The pizza was good, but a little greasy. The staff was attentive.

If you're craving a pasta fix - their homemade gnocchi is also brilliant - or some outstanding veal scallopini or fresh grilled fish, drop in to this haven for Calabrese-style cuisine in downtown Saratoga. The stuffed mushroom with smoked mozzarella is fantastic, as is the Avocado Tonnato, a healthy dish of prawns and shrimp served with a pink cream sauce.... More

Food is good, but on the expensive side for what you get unless you're using a Groupon (which they seem to have pretty often). Live music is fun as long as you're not trying to have too much conversation.

As we had our dog with us, I inquired if dogs were allowed on the patio. Recieving a yes we decided to try this reastaurant for dinner, rather than the... More

Friends told us about the take-out. We have enjoyed the salads and the pasta. Delicious. The restaurant is close by, so we can run in to pick up the pasta Bolognese and, usually, a good Caesar salad. The menu, Italian, always tempts us to try new pastas or veal dishes. The wine list carries Italian wines, some we've never tried... More

You will find much to love in this charming Saratoga eatery. Prices are consistent with the food and service, perhaps a little on the inexpensive side for the quality and wonderfully accommodating attitude exhibited by every staff member I have encountered in over 10 visits. Very nice wine list.
