One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. My husband and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner together after my parents went for their anniversary and recommended it to us. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. I plan to go back again as soon as possible.

Food, live music and Service was great. It was a chilly night and we were sharing one heater with two other tables 6 feet away...so dress appropriately.

Really nice evening to celebrate our anniversary. The wait staff were excellent- attentive, engaging, and anticipated our needs. Food was great, especially the bread pudding!! Recommend the eggplant parm for sure.

We went here on our first date a year ago and now that we are married this is our place! We try to eat here once a month or so and Rigo has become our favorite waiter. The food is great, priced right, and the ambience and guitarist are fabulous. We love how they've handled the protocols due to Covid and that they aren't too overzealous, while being safe. Highly recommend this quaint place!

Food was great, atmosphere was great, the man playing the guitar was great but service was poor. We rarely saw our waiter and we wanted something we had to ask the bus boy.

The ambience and food at Bella Saratoga was fine but the service left much to be desired!
Our server didn't come by to take our order for drinks for quite a while after we were seated. When it was time to serve us our food the server served it to us over a railing that was dividing the outdoor seating from a walkway that lead to the inside of the restaurant! Improve on the service please!

Asked for seating under the awning, they said sure and brought us to the table then said no you need to sit over here??????

Waiter did show up for 10 min (not busy), my wife asked for vodka in her drink instead of Gin, he said no. He said I’ll give you a few more minutes to decide, 15 min later never showed back up. Got up and left.

The food was pretty good. They had a musician doing live music but really needed to turn down the amplifiers, I couldn't hear the person across the table from me. The servers were excellent.

We ate in the court yard on Saturday night. There was a guitar playing playing music. The service was prompt all night. The food was cooked perfectly for myself and my family. We enjoyed the nice atmosphere. I think that that the price is commensurate with the whole dining experience.

The food menu changed, which isn’t the problem. However, I felt the food was just average. The steak was extra fatty, with supposedly a truffle sauce. For a $55 steak it had no flavor. The potatoes were not cooked well. The Cioppino tasted like a canned tomato soup. I was very disappointed in the food overall. The service was great as usual, I do have to mention. I would love to come back but I fear it won’t be enjoyable like it once was.

I thought Bella Saratoga was pretty good. The dish I had was "okay", but my
husband thought his dish was excellent. We split a salad and they split it for us, and
we had a good portion and it was very good.
Of course, we were outside. THe patio was fairly nice and it was a very nice night.
So all in all, I would say try it out.

Despite Covid dining constraints, Bella Saratoga was delightful! The food was delicious. The service was gracious. And we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The ceiling fans on a 95 degree evening were wonderful.

Thank you for a memorable evening, Bella Saratoga!

The service here should get six stars. The food is good, served hot when it’s supposed to be hot and cold when it’s supposed to be cold. (not as easy a feat as you might think). The servers are extremely attentive. It’s been a long time since I’ve had service this good.
