The food is wonderful here - their pasta is delicious, and portions are generous enough to usually count on some leftovers. We also had excellent service on this most recently visit. Good value, also! Whenever we visit Saratoga Springs, we make a point of having...More

Great recommendation from our hotel. We were seated immediately when we arrived. We are big on splitting courses when we are on the road - the main reason is because we don't like taking back leftovers to our room. We started with a shared plate...More

First, I must say, the food was very, very good. I had an octopus special with a citrus pepper aioli. It was incredible, one of the best octopus dishes I've ever had. Our appetizer salad, which we split, was almost as good. My wife's ravioli...More

No. Not at all. If it's cool and they put you on the porch, bring a jacket.

Description
Anchoring Saratoga's vibrant downtown Forno Bistro is a family-owned bistro that offers a variety of rustic, Tuscan-style food rooted in tradition. Our chef's use only the freshest seasonal ingredients to prepare dishes with respect to their flavors, appearance and aroma. The menu is sophisticated but approachable, expressing the sense of hearth and home that defines the Tuscan style of life. Forno Bistro's rustic, Tuscan-style food is hearty and unpretentious with sophisticated flavors rooted in tradition and always open to new interpretations and adaptations. Many of our dishes are greatly influenced by the use of the wood-fired oven: homemade pizzas, sauteed calamari, and wood-fired towers of vegetables. The oven is always the inspiration.
