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.

My wife and I went for an early dinner before going to the Harness Track. We sat outside on the terrace. My wife had eggplant parmesan with a side of pasta with olive oil and garlic. It was excellent. I had chicken cutlets with veggies which was also very good. A couple glasses of wine too. Nice wine list. We shared a Caesar salad with anchovies and after dinner a sambuca and cappuccino. Very enjoyable meal. The waitress was very nice. I'm sorry I didn't catch her name. I would highly recommend this place.

Spent some lovely time with family at Forno Bistro. Had no reservation but thanks to a late cancelation we were seated inside with just couple of minutes waiting.
Lovely atmosphere with very attentive staff.
Glory of the day was the pizza margherita. Being Italian I know that when traveling pizza may be just average, but at Forno Bistro it was terrific. Well cooked, tasty, and crusty enough to enjoy every single bite.
Definitively a place where to have good time, and a good pizza!

After a day at the track take your winnings and head to Forno. A local favorite with charming outdoor dining on Broadway.
Cheerful and informed staff. Great bread they bake on site. The homemade taggliatele with pork ragu was a winner, and my Italian hubby approved of the pizza! Reservations needed especially on weekends. The outdoor porch was quieter than inside, which has a hopping bar scene. Also easy to walk to if staying in town.

My sister and I stopped at this restaurant on our way back from Montreal. It was very busy so I recommend making a reservation in advance if you decide to eat here. We ate at the bar due to long wait times. The service at the bar was great. There were at least 3 bartenders on staff, and all of them constantly checked on us. We came for a quick bite so we shared the caprese salad and a margarita pizza. Both dishes were good. The pizza was enough for two to share, and the thin crust was crispy enough. I would definitely come back to this place to try other dishes.

We were a party of 8 we arrived the restaurant was jammed no issue we were greeted seated quickly & from there on they took great care of us. Fabulous service considering the restaurant was completely full. Menu is very Italian excellent pasta cooked al dente, good children’s menu, Calamari App great lightly battered & a good wine list.
Our Server Jessica was terrific great service & good suggestions a real asset to the restaurant she was very busy & didn’t get flustered great job!
Overall a great value in Saratoga!
