Forno offers consistency of well-prepared offerings and attentive service. We can usually count on cobbling together a decent lunch the day after a dinner here from their generous portions. Love eating on their al fresco porch when weather permits.

Came here once before several years ago. Food was good but rather overpriced. Had the canzone but wished there was a menu item for a half canzone and a salad.

We went for happy hour for a little wine and appetizers after a day of shopping along Broadway. The caprese salad was delicious and the perfect combination of fresh tomatoes and mozzarella.

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

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.
