Description: Anchoring Saratoga's vibrant downtown Forno Bistro is a family-owned bistro that offers a variety of rustic, Tuscan-style food rooted in tradition. Our chef's use only the freshest seasonal ingredients to prepare dishes with respect to their flavors, appearance and aroma. The menu is sophisticated but approachable, expressing the sense of hearth and home that defines the Tuscan style of life. Forno Bistro's rustic, Tuscan-style food is hearty and unpretentious with sophisticated flavors rooted in tradition and always open to new interpretations and adaptations. Many of our dishes are greatly influenced by the use of the wood-fired oven: homemade pizzas, sauteed calamari, and wood-fired towers of vegetables. The oven is always the inspiration.

Came here once before several years ago. Food was good but rather overpriced. Had the canzone but wished there was a menu item for a half canzone and a salad.

It was a warm spot but the service was ifffy at best. Waited almost 5 minutes for drink order to be taken. Many empty tables but was told we had to sit at high top. Salad was great (Caeser). I had a pasta dish with Short ribs - I was not impressed. Probably won't go back.

Went there on a business dinner - group of 9. A nice variety of appetizers. I had the lamb (ordered medium rare, should have ordered medium). Great flavor. Others in the group had steak, pasta dishes.

My wife and i both had a pasta dish which was delicious. We sat outside on a heated pourch which was very nice. The service was slow and at times when we needed our waiter we had to flag him down. Also we never received bread so we asked but the waiter never brought it. The table next to us had received a 2nd basket which they did not want so the gave it to us. go for the food and not the service.
