The food is simply fantastic. I love the Lasagna, they give you such large portions, and my husband loves the steak as well and they start you of with the nice warm bread its incredible. The Bar is great as well!

The food is wonderful. The cost is good and the staff is very friendly. If you want good food for a fair price, I recommend this restaurant. We will continue to visit it, when you are in the area.

We had the well-hyped Veal Parm. Great taste and lots to devour. Ben was one of the best waiters I've had anywhere. Personable and informed. This will be my Saratoga dining spot.
