For the price, we were not impressed with the food.
Excellent service, excellent food, wonderful ambiance!
This was supposed to be a date night for me but unfortunately, it didn’t go as planned. Rather canceling my reservation, I asked my friend if he wanted to come instead for a great dinner. The food was incredible, and I must say, they have an outstanding wine selection. Their extensive wine list and prices are very reasonable. I couldn’t have asked for a better night, the dining experience here saved my night.
Excellent dinner and great service!
Will return soon!
I was a firs time diner. My experience was exceptional. Food, service and ambience was excellent. I would recommend Annarella.
Annarella is like dining with a big family. Warm, inviting, everyone talking (slightly noisy sometimes), laughter...and most significantly, extraordinary food.
It was a busy night i will give it that, but everything wasn't up to the usual par. Some of the food was definitely under seasoned but still good. I received the wrong bottle of wine I ordered, but didn't realize it until I was about to pay. My partner and I asked for a few things, but it seems we were forgotten and had to wait a while until someone came to check on us to ask again. Lesson learned to not come on a weekend day and/or a holiday.
Excellent meal - good food, good service. What elevates this restaurant above a regular “red sauce joint” is the level of attention given by the greeter and servers - all outstanding. The starter, salads and entree (veal parmesan) were all tasty and well-prepared, and desserts really indulgent. We will be back!
A wonderful gathering with friends on a stormy night. Cozy and warm. Fabulous Italian food. Bresaola and arugula salad - amazing! Lemon chicken over garlic spinach was absolutely tang, crunchy, and delicious.
Wonderfully run by the most dedicated staff. I feel terrible leaving this review because it was very crowded and I know this will catch on. An absolute gem.
You accommodated our change in reservation. Greeted us warmly, seated us immediately, waited upon us courteously and professionally, and served delicious food. We will highly recommend you to our friends.
We went there to celebrate an anniversary and once again, everything was outstanding. I split a plate of tonnarelli with lobster sauce with my wife as a first course. The pasta was homemade and the sauce was creamy without being too thick. I had the veal chop porterhouse and it was the best I ever had. The chop was seared and the inside was moist, tender and delicious. The service was wonderful with the staff being very friendly and able to handle the room with ease (or at least make it look easy).
We come up to this area of upstate New York several times a year , never ate in this gem of an establishment and now cannot wait to come back.
Delicious food, fresh snd interesting/ loved the atmosphere- warm and comfortable
Loved our server , Christine.
There were four of us on our first visit to Anarella. We were seated immediately in the outdoor section we has requested. There was a full house, but tables were well spaced and comfortable. The atmosphere was both friendly and professional. Our drinks came quickly and we were given plenty of time to consider the menu and the specials for the evening. It was a good menu with a lot of interesting choices. Two of our party had several appetizers as their meal/ The octopus, tender and piquant, was a hit for two of us. A house salad comes with a any main course selection which is a nice welcome touch these days. There was nn extensive win list with many wines by the glass, and a good selection of bottles under $40. The Gavi we chose was excellent with all our dishes The staff was very attentive throughout the evening. The food was excellent. My roast boar tagliatelle was satisfying without being overwhelming, meaning I still had room for dessert. Anarella is a remarkably fine restaurant. We’ll be going back as soon as we can.
The food was great and so was the service. While taking out their food during the height of the pandemic was terrific, eating in the restaurant was truly superb. Always consistent and always delicious, you cannot go wrong with one of the best Italian restaurants in the Hudson Valley. The veal chop parmesan is perfect, as are the sausage dishes, and everything else they serve.
My wife and I went to Annarella’s for the first time and had an absolutely wonderful experience. The menu choices had many Tuscan classics, such as pappardelle with wild boar ragú, and the wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. Great service too. We will become regulars at Annarella’s !
We were here with a small group for Mothers’ Day. The host was very accommodating in getting us to a different type table than we originally requested, despite the holiday. He also quickly seated a party that came in without reservations. Our server (Mitch) was a superstar. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Although the restaurant was extremely busy due to the holiday, he welcomed us to linger as long as we wanted after receiving our check. Our shared appetizer (mussels) was beautifully prepared and delicious. We were all happy with our entrees, but the scallop special with risotto got the top score. Annarella’s is a great choice for a special occasion meal.
Went out for Greek Easter. The whole experience was wonderful. Excellent food and great service.
Let’s see. Food, perfect; service , perfect; setting, perfect; wine list, perfect with something for everyone and reasonably priced. It is VERY popular so make a reservation.
We were visiting the area on vacation, so the only negative is that it is too far for us to visit on a regular basis. If we were closer it would be our “ go to” Italian restaurant.
We had amazing food and service!
My favorite local restaurant!
Impeccable service. Excellent appetizer, sauce on entree was too rich.
Loved the screened in tent with the chandeliers and flowers. Very intimate. Felt like inside but with the safety of outside. Delicious bread.
This is my favorite place in the Catskills region. Lovely atmosphere, but you can dress casual and have a lovely meal. Food in NYC level A+ (I love the gorgonzola gnocchi, the mussels and octopus are outstanding and heirloom chicken breast with lemon sauce is to die for). Lovely foccacia bread to start with herbed butters and the mini cannolis you gotta do.
Please ask for Matthew when you go - he is knowledgeable, takes note of your needs and is charming to boot!
Fantastic place in the middle of nowhere. Amazing Food.
Love it here
I have experienced most of the standard entrées at Annarella's and can honestly say i have been very satisfied. Appetizers are excellent Saturday the supper size Pork Chop and roasted potatoes were the perfect the sauce was incredible. My wife 's and I dine at Annarella's frequently if there is any thing i would say is not top shelf it would be the seafood which doesn't always taste fresh. Cooking fish myself frequently, I know that it must be wiped down thoroughly before preparing as exposure to air seems to begin a flesh breakdown that will have a fishy aroma. I usually stick with the other entree's. I recommend Annarella's for the food quality, atmosphere, friendliness and service.
Food was delicious, ambiance was relaxing and service was diligent.
Definitely will return.
Family dining, good ambiance, nicely decorated, seating was comfortable, and reservations are recommended. The staff was friendly and courteous. The menu was diverse and in addition there were the daily specials. The portions were just right. Dessert presentation was wonderful. If in the area, I would definitely dine there again!
Best Italian Restaurant ever
