Amazing looking and tasting food. The guys behind the bar do an amazing job with the drinks they mix/pour and make you feel very welcome even if your just waiting for your table to open up! The wait staff does a great job of making you feel special even if they have a bunch of other tables. Its a little loud but totally worth it with the amazing food your served. O and they are great singers!
The food was outstanding. The service was above average. The waitress was genuinely friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. My boyfriend had the lasagna . He considers himself a meatball connoisseur. Since there were no meatballs with he lasagna, he asked if he could try one. While it was not a usual request, they very nicely brought one to him. He voted it very good.
Food and atmosphere was good but noise level high and tables too close together. A waitress walked by and apologized to my husband for bumping into him but never mentioned she had spilled sauce all down his pant leg. We didn’t notice it until we got home.
Great food and even better service. Will come again.
Calamari was tough and very salty - really not very good. Entrees were decent but they didn't "wow" us. Ambiance and location is very nice and our server was very good. Pretty stingy pour on the glass of wine. It just seemed that the food/value was a notch below the atmosphere and service. If we were to go back it would be to sit in the bar area and have a pizza, but we probably won't return for the dinner entrees.
Great service and cozy atmosphere. Pizza and salad were very tasty.
This is one of our favorite places to dine - I love the new casual environment - the staff is always amazing. Great for a quick bite at the bar or a dinner.
I love their Eggplant Parmesan - everything is fresh and farm to table.
Summer thru Fall they have outdoor seating also
If you're in Saratoga this is a must
Food was delicious.. frutti de mare, stuffed eggplant appetizer was great! Love the exposed wood, mood lighting with candles and little white lights and old iron machine parts .. romantic, lively... fun
The service was excellent ! And the food is always delicious ! Their salads are very plentiful and tasteful ! I always recommend Forno to family and friends!
We had a wonderful dinner at Forno Bistro. The food was delicious and large portions. I had a candy cane cosimo that was yummy!!
We returned the first course, fried calamari, because it was rubbery, greasy and undercooked. They did take it off our bill.
My husband’s main course, steak was perfect but overpriced ($36). My main course, chicken with a little cheese and ham was over cooked and dry,
We were disappointed and won’t be returning.
I wonder if there’s a new chef.
A great time for dinner with good friends. Specials we're creative and well prepared as always. As with restaurants where served regular capuccino is weak. Don't chintz in the espresso, it's what makes the drink.
We almost always recommend Forno Bistro as our first choice for a restaurant in Saratoga. There are several reasons. We know we can count on excellent food with a great selection, excellent service from attentive experienced wait staff accommodating special diet requests pretty lively atmosphere outdoor comfortable seating with pretty setting.
Our only concern is that because it is always so popular, when we want a very quiet dining place we may hesitate to go there but they try to find us the quietest area and since everything else is so outstanding we highly recommend Forno Bistro and love going there.
We loved it here. Sat at the bar before dinner and had fried calamari. Delicious. The servers were great and the food did not disappoint.
It was cold in there!
