My husband took me here for my birthday and we were not disappointed. It is indeed one of the smallest restaurants we have ever been to but the staff was fantastic and very personable. The wine choices were very well selected and paired nicely with our meal.

We have dinner here each time we visit Saratoga Springs. Food is superb! This visit included salads, short ribs, beef tenderloin, meatballs, Osso Buco and more. Creme Brûlée, flourless chocolate torte and zeppoles were all delish as well!

This was a special dinner. We sat in the middle of the restaurant and our table was full of food the entire time. Scrumptious bread, cheese plate, olives, spreads, then had incredible homemade pasta and the hugest portions of meat ever. The wine selections were encouraged by our super friendly waiter. Delicious! Cant wait to go back.

Tiny restaurant with unusual reservation seatings, but so worth it if you manage to get one. The warm eggplant caponata app was amazing. We both had pasta dishes which are offered in two sizes. Thinking the smaller one was an app we went for the large. My beef ragout was enough that we both had it again a second night.... More

Recently visited in the "off season" so I had no problem getting a seat at 6:30. Staff was very friendly. My meal was very good, large portions for me so I had take away leftovers. Would definitely got again.

Dined here last night with my husband, we were celebrating our anniversary. We've traveled quite a bit around the world, and this place tops some of the Michelin star restaurants we've been to! This is a perfect hidden gem in Saratoga. He had the filet loin with lobster polenta and braised spinach, while i enjoyed the Chianti braised beef short... More

This little place is amazing! I knew going in that it was going to be small so there was no shock there. The wine list is beautifully paired with several dining options. Our server Benny was well versed and truly made us feel like family. The owner came over to see us and was so friendly I felt I had... More

Expectations too high? Maybe but, you have no excuse with wines that taste like this. When asked if they had anything else they shrugged us off. For the record I am not a wine snob.... Don't forget the cramped quarters that some say is intimate, I call it claustrophobic
