Superior lunch selection beautifully prepared. Waiter was knowledgable and entire experience was positive.
Late lunch on weekday in June 2021. Not crowded. Good shade outside. Not noisy. Food quality very good. Service excellent. Very good bread served with lunch with an excellent flavored butter. I had seafood salad which was quite good with a healthy amount of quality shrimp and big scallops.
Went on Fathers Day, first visit there and had the Halibut special. It was so fresh and very good. I highly recommend that special again if the have it. The bar Old Fashion cocktail was excellent too!
We are regulars at Bella. The service is great and the food, tasty.
Lovely brunch spot with great food choices! Live music a plus!
I bit of a let down after going there over 30 years. Got water, fruit and rolls almost at the sea time as our food. We waited for a while. Bummed - but the waitress was great!
We were seated on time upstairs, which turned out to be fabulous. Downstairs was full, quite warm, and bustling. Upstairs was cool (there was a portable AC) and quiet. One other group was there for a short while, then we had the room to ourselves until just before we left. There was no rush whatsoever; our waiter was gracious and attentive and the food delicious.
Maybe a few years ago you get away with very average food and service because you’re in beautiful downtown Saratoga and don’t have much competition but times have changed
Our table was right in front of the guitar player’s speakers. WAY too loud.
What a lovely experience. It was a beautiful evening and we sat outside and everything was wonderful. The hostess was very sweet and kept us updated on the status of our table which was only 5-7 minutes longer. Our waiter was entertaining and attentive. The salads, entrees, and desserts were delicious. It’s a restaurant I will definitely be visiting again soon.
Overall it was a pleasant experience. Service was a little slow; It took 2 hours for our meal instead of the supposed 1 1/2 hours allotted for our dinner. The food was tasty. I would go back
Four of us went for lunch on a Saturday, it was very busy but we had reservations and were seated quite quickly and brought menus and water right away. We sat on the front patio and they quickly obliged our request to move the umbrella so we were more in the shade. We ordered drinks and an appetizer which came in a reasonable amount of time and the house bread which is quite tasty.
3 of us had salads, two of the grilled salmon salads, which we both really liked, one order of Caesar salad which he was disappointed that it didn't have anchovies but otherwise was fine and one order of pasta which he enjoyed.
Overall good experience, we will return.
Rigo our server was fantastic. Very attentive. My Petrali Sole was delightful We even had a chance to meet Jennifer the Owner. I can’t forget the Guitarist Hugo played all the right music. This place is a gem!!!!!
Exceptional & attentive service. The exterior (we ate outside) has a lot of charm. Most of our party loved their dishes. A little noisy since we were seated close to the street (COVID seating) and cars passed by.
Spur of the moment reservation, this was such a good find! Enjoyed the musician on the outdoor patio, and the food was great!
We had a wonderful dinner. It was a perfect night to sit outside on the patio. The guitarist was fantastic.
We loved the live music on Saturday night, very nice relaxing, romantic vibe.
Ruben was great as usual. Food was very good. Service got a little slow due to too many customers for lunch on that day, I think.
Service was fantastic and the pasta was delicious. Highly recommend the Dusk to Dawn Cosmo
Disappointing - overpriced and underwhelmed. Went for dinner on a Saturday night and were seated upstairs which was a bit too warm and lacking in ambience. The hostess was unfriendly if not just rude. The service was extremely slow and inattentive (diners next to us ended up getting their entrees to-go). When the food finally arrived it was average. $52 ribeye special was definitely not worth it. Finally, just because a place is old doesn't mean it's charming. Would not return.
Fantastic service! Great food!
The food was excellent. But the ambience upstairs was dismal and service was poor. Maybe it was just a bad day for the wait staff: Our group of 5 was seated upstairs and the waiter took over 20 minutes to get water and when we asked him not to forget about us, he scoffed “there are all these other people too.” Then he took longer. Later he apologized and said they had “a situation” to handle. Finally we placed our order and the waiter forgot to bring one of our appetizers though it showed up on the bill. Anyway, despite all these issues, it must be said again that the food was outstanding.
Another wonderful dinner at Bella Saratoga! My wife and I enjoyed the Saltibocca and Fettutine Bianco. Great food and wonderful service!
Wonderful food, location, service and live guitar music for out door dinner.
The food was delicious, The service and atmosphere were great. Highly recommended!
it was very nice to sit outside and feel like a normal evening.
The food was really delicious and the service was great!
Great place for a birthday dinner
Food good, entertainment guitar player oldies and Beatles was wonderful. Wine by the bottle expensive, but good.
Great service, food and ambiance. We will return.
Weird that they refused to serve bread until after we ordered. My friend was hungry and we were still waiting for another friend to arrive before ordering. My friend asked twice and they refused to bring us bread. We ended up putting in our order before the other arrived. Outdoor sitting was nice, but it is unlikely I will be back.
The food was good, though not great — my fish special was lacking in seasoning — and the service was very slow. Problems with staffing, maybe as everyone returns to the dining scene. But Hugo the guitar player makes it all worthwhile. He’s amazing!
This is swiftly becoming g my favorite place. I love the outdoor lighting above the outdoor seating and the food is unparalleled!!!! Every main course we have tried gets better than the last, plus I simply can’t get enough of that fresh backed bread and cheese spread. The staff is wonderful and I feel like I’ve just traveled to Europe and eaten at an outdoor bistro every time I go there. You won’t be disappointed!!!
A wonderful dinner provided by a wonderful staff. We felt well taken care of and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and recommendations.
Great location, quaint, rustic with a touch of contemporary. The food, service, polite staff and ambiance definitely live up to the mark.
This is such a lovely restaurant - the food is flavorful and perfectly prepared and the service is outstanding. A beautiful place to unwind and enjoy quality food.
New happy memories are always created every time I dine here. 😊
The service was good. The food was excellent! We're looking forward to another lunch!
Great ambience here but the food is mediocre for the price you pay. Service started out pretty slow when we were one of only two families in the entire restaurant. It did pick up eventually. Overall a decent Italian restaurant but nothing too out of the ordinary!
Very nice and service was great. Food was very good.
