Joe and his staff are very attentive, providing a wonderful dinning experience. The dishes are prepared to perfection and plated to invite the palate. The wine list will also please any wine lover. Joe makes everyone feel welcome and like family. When in the Saugerties area, Annarella's is must!
Had Thanksgiving dinner and it was a great experience. This is one of the best restaurants in the Palenville area.
The food was excellent! Matches the best in nearby Hudson and distant NYC! Our party shared appetizers and had 4 different entreés - one was better than the next. The complimentary salad was a small plate of palate clearing greens to get us ready for the outstanding rest of the meal. We did not have dessert as we were too full!
Noise levels are high.
great, authentic Italian food with fair prices! Would definitely come back!
We had an enjoyable meal at Anarella’s with a few quibbles. We arrived early for our Open Table reservation and were seated fairly quickly. Our drink order was taken and we received a bread basket and the bread was delicious! My wife and I split the cold cut platter for two which was quite good. My wife had the lasagna which was also good, but she thought it could have included ricotta cheese, but it seems it did not. What’s lasagna without ricotta? I had the pasta with lobster broth. It has a small lobster and one shrimp! I thought for the money they could have included at least one more shrimp. We passed on desert. We though the service could have been better. It seems our waitress was assigned to more tables than she could handle. We had to wait awhile to get our check and to give her her tip. Nevertheless, I thought our meal was good and I would go again.
The best restaurant in the area!
Very, very busy. Parking s at a premium.
We love Annarella. It’s a throwback to the great Italian places of the 60’s and 70’s. Can be noisy. Our group of 6 ate alone in the small room to the right of the dining room because there were big groups in the main dining room. One person in our group sent his steak back as it was too tough but the rest of us enjoyed our dinners.
Dinner with friends. We ate outside. The staff was SUPERB. (2 sisters)
The food was FABULOUS. They offered us fresh local veggies to take home.
JUST AN AMAZING RESTAURANT!!
It is a splurge to go to Annarella but it is fabulous! If I won the lottery I wouldn’t cook anymore and go to Annarella at least 3x a week!!
They have great service and impeccable food!
The restaurant was especially busy that night with a very lively crowd. Because of the crowd, service was a bit slow and they also ran out of Coca Cola. However, the food was very delicious and authentic Italian. The pasta and seafood dishes were very good, and the double cut pork chop was generous and cooked excellently.
We've known Annarrella's since Joe opened. The dude knows how to run a restaurant. He owned one or more in Manhattan and his recipes rock. The other lost art that me and my SO really enjoy is how the service paces your meal. There is no rush here unless you need it to be. Truly a great dining experience and it doesn't break the bank. Many great dishes here. Lasagna is worthy of a try as the bechemel sauce is splendid. The lobster pasta dish is special as is the pork chops and steak. Many others too. Fresh bread is great, wine list is fun and Joe is a trip.
The food from appetizer to desert was excellent the best we’ve had ever I highly recommend this place the service was great the people are friendly the music was perfect and we enjoyed every part of it. This is the second time we brought guest from out of town and each one raved about the food EXCELLENT
I could easily eat there several nights a week. Love the clams casino, the lasagna, the salmon. Salad is greens with cauliflower in a very light vinaigrette. Different and delicious.
We're so glad he came to town.
Excellent as usual
I enjoyed it but went with my teenage kids who were disappointed there weren't more traditional italian options, like chicken parm etc.
Can always count on a good meal here. Everything is well worth the money. Only suggestion I would have is to have a starch with each meal. Some dishes you would have to pay extra. Still in all, love this place.
the food was outrageous service was great by all .very well liked will go back again.question however do you have a kids menu I did not see one.But did see kids.
6 if us dined here last Saturday night... we each had a different main dish- all were happy ....there was a salmon, excellent , shrimp and beans - great taste... mussels in a great “dip your bread in” sauce.
Salad and bread basket for all
Excellent food with fresh pasta and a large, well priced wine selection.
Our dinner was absolutely delicious. We choose from several specials, getting soft-shell crabs, and a complex chicken, eggplant, ricotta, mozzarella, and red sauce dish. My only comment is they did not tell the price of the specials (of course, we should have asked) and the crab was pricey. The service was prompt and attentive (although they should pick up the bread plates before dessert). The room is very handsome, with soft lighting from gorgeous handcrafted fixtures, with different seating options including the quieter corner banquet where we sat. An excellent restaurant for dinner! We’ll be back—
Great restaurant to celebrate my birthday while staying in the Catskills. Awesome wine list.
Excellent food and service. We were going to Woodstock for the Memorial Day parade and stayed in Saugerites. What a gem.
Very smooth. Nice evening, all four dishes were enjoyed. No leftovers. For the quality of food, service and ambiance a very good value. Definite keeper. This is a 4.5 or 4.6 out of 5.

Consistently excellent food. Service is also excellent and it is good value
An excellent restaurant. The service and the food were well above the usual. A candle was needed for a birthday dessert and they managed to put it on the cannoli. The tartufo was unreal. We will go back and back and...
Family-run restaurant that delivers across the board. Best flavored lobster paste I've had; other pasta ordered was the boar/pappardelle, and it, too, was delicious! Salad served along with meal - would like to have had a veggie in the salad (was only lettuce). Nice wine selection. Will go back when in town!
Excellent food. Authentic Italian cuisine. Good service. Fabulous restaurant!
Wonderful service, delicious food (appetizers & entrees), lovely atmosphere. Will return next time around the area:
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Annarellas. My husband had the "best chicken dish he has had in a long time" and my eggplant rollatini was delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a great meal.
We have dined here about 5 or 6 times within the past year and it has been consistently excellent! The food is spectacular and the service is attentive! We highly recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and family, and they have come to love it as much as we do. A true gem!
Food is great!!!!
Staff were very helpful (helped me with my Gluten Free choices). ALL wait staff stopped to ask how we were doing....not just our waitress .
We ordered the----Antipasto Toscano (for two) which was excellent.
Tonnarelli con Aragosta
"Gluten Pasta" with lobster reduction. I loved it !
-----My Husband order:
Scaloppine alla Salvia
Veal scaloppine , He also loved his choice, the best tasting veal scaloppine he ever had.
Too full for dessert!
My Husband and I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great find! We go out on a regular basis. This was a great place, fantastic food, great service and the drinks were on point.
It was wonderful!
Having eaten here a few times before I have yet to be disappointed. Everything from walking in the door until you walk out the door is done right. From service, food and hospitality you will not be disappointed.
The server was attentive and the lasagna was delicious! The boar ragu was good, but we’ve has better. Overall a very good experience, but not particularly memorable.
Parking is horrible. I don't think there are painted lines separating parking spots. As a result people park poorly.
Wow. Shockingly wonderful find with nyc level food. Grilled octopus and scallops to die for. Absolutely going back
The calves liver was absolutely delicious ... and the bread wonderful, as always!
It was a lovely evening, the food was delicious! My husband & I were celebrating our anniversary. We had such a nice time & can't wait to go back
We go to Annarella's often and are never disappointed. The food and service are always nothing less than excellent. In addition to the menu there are always quite a few great specials for both appetizer and main dishes.
