    Nove is the best Italian reataurant in Saratoga area. The bread is shipped from Manhattan and is delicious! Good size portions and delicious food!

    We had a circular table, for 6, in a corner. It was perfect for us. The food at Nove is consistently very good. Three of us ordered the fillet of sole because we think it's the best in the area. Would also recommend the gnocchi and for an appetizer the Burrata. The service is always excellent. We have never been disappointed.

    This was a great dinner at a great setting. I went there for my special ladies birthday and we were both very happy with the choice. We have seen it a couple times as we drove by and wanted to check it out. I was hesitant to leave of up to a restaurant I haven't been to for a birthday dinner. But, I was so glad we did go here. I love to dress up for a nice dinner and we are usually one of the only ones dressed up here. But at Nove there were a good amount of people dressed up as well, so we didn't feel out of place at all. This was a great experience with nothing bad to mention at all. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. Thank you.

    Great food and service. But not romantic. Three large and loud groups dominated. Also, servers kept trying to take plates away even when we weren't done. Place looks and feels elegant until the crowd arrives. So, if you love great Italian food and are in a rush, this is the place for you.

    We were seated with only a wine list and had to ask two servers for menus. Our entree was rushed at us as we were finishing our apps. Wait staff was too busy with larger tables near us and hardly acknowledged us. I had informed the restaurant we were celebrating our 45th anniversary and confirmed that by phone. No one mentioned it. I had hoped for a memorable evening and they did nothing to promote that

    It was hard to find a place around 7:30 in downtown area on the day we visited Saratoga Springs. We were not so sure about our choice when arriving the restaurant based on the look. But our meals were excellent and service was attentive. We had a great time and will come back.

    We live in this area and have been here before. For some reason it fell off our radar when we are looking to eat out. Probably because it is outside of the downtown area. Thanks to open tables we see other options than our "go to" resturants. This dinner is one of the best we have had at ANY resturant it awhile for many reasons. We got a reservation quickly (which is good for those who don't plan too far ahead). The staff was very friendly. Service was promt. We ordered 3 meals from the specials and they were all just fabulous. I usually don't write reviews but I personally look at reviews to make a decision on where to spend my money. Can't rave enough about our experience.

    Our waiter (Older male Italian guy) seemed overwhelmed and in a fog. Drinks took a long time to arrive. By the time app's came it was 45 minutes from order time. White clam zuppa a special dish for us there was weak on that night light on clams. My guess is the dishes may have been laying around in the kitchen waiting to be picked up. Same with dinner. Veal Nove seemed like it was ready but never picked up on time in the kirtchen, just about warm. Waiter hardly came back to table, girls picked up his slack.

    overpriced mediocre food. unprofessional service. bar was like being in an OTB office with people screaming for their horse to win at Saratoga. We are great Saratoga racing fans and loved this restaurant when owned by others. Nove does not have a clue. When you can get a table on a Saturday night at the last minute during racing season, the place is destined to fail.

    Busy time - track season. Found parking because we had an early reservation so didn't use valet parking. Much busier an hour later as we were about to leave. Moderate prices - usually reserved for special occasions. Meal was fine - would have liked a few more shrimp for price. Beware of water choices offered. I like sparkling at home and didn't realize I would be brought a large bottle to consume myself (and pay for). Would have preferred tea or wine instead. Open bar area where sound will invade nearest dining area. Service was attentive - no major complaints.

    The food was good... Some things better than others... I would recommend more seasoning in the pasta dishes because the flavors were there but fell short (opinion from a person who grew up with authentic, homemade Italian cooking). The cheese and meat board special was delicious and so was the special salad. The portion sizes are huge, which I love because I love having left overs. The server was excellent and very knowledgable! He made the experience fun! All of the staff we encountered were very friendly. We ate outside and it was very lovely and quiet, which was nice for our date night away from our child. I would definitely go back to try other dishes. The wine list is very nice as well!

    On a crowded Saturday night, we were offered to dine outside for a quieter experience. Well, we got it ! The patio was beautiful, table cloths, great view of the back hill and definitely more intimate. From the fig salad, to the ribeye special, every course was spectacular. Great service and delicious food, Wilton's best kept secret is always consistent and our home away from home. One of the best Italian restaurants around...

    We were visiting Saratoga for an arts weekend and chose Nove for our anniversary dinner. Although this is not a candle-lit romantic room, the whole experience was so wonderful that it certainly qualified as romantic. The food was amazingly delicious, wine by the glass and cocktails were excellent. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable. The menu is varied enough so that you can order a pizza or a stuffed veal chop. Can't wait to go back.

    I went with a group of friends and we all had an outstanding meal. We made reservations and were seated immediately. The service was good, the décor is lovely and is very clean. My only issue was that it is "very dark" in the restaurant and at times I had trouble seeing the small print on the menus. I will definitely go back.

    We went to Nove' for a girls' night out, we started with a few drinks at the bar, the bartender, who was very friendly, suggested us a few "feature" martinis.. they were delicious and very "springy", all the girls love them ! Once we were ready, we had our drinks carried to our table by our server.. the restaurant appeared very nice and clean on the inside, everyone was polite, and very personable. our server explained to us the specials of the evening, we ordered delicious appetizers, continuing onto our dinner, one of us ordered a ribeye special with melted gorgonzola cheese that was mouth watering! we ended our great night sharing dessert! all around a great time for all of us, we will definitely be back for our next girls night out!

    Nove is surprisingly attractive inside despite the plain exterior. The staff was very informative about the menu items and the food was very good. The only negative for the evening was the sparklers they set off for a birthday guest had a horrible, very strong odor that because of the low ceilings lingered long enough to ruin your appetite.

    Nove was recommended to me by a coworker, and it definitely earned his high praises. I made reservations for a Valentine's dinner on the day after Valentine's and everything went perfectly. Our reservation was ready almost immediately, the meal options all sounded excellent, and we had fresh warm bread to eat. We had the bison ribeye and the penne vodka; both dishes were perfect and in particular I found the ribeye to be cooked to perfection and was favorably portioned to me. I will certainly recommend Nove to others and return myself!
