Stop first at the Big Basin Tasting room and pick up a bottle (or two) of Grizzly or Odeon, or if you prefer, one of their super yummy Pinot Noirs. Then enjoy the home-like atmosphere and fantastic menu at Bella Saratogas!

Obviously Saratoga is an upscale Village in Silicon Valley. So expect upscale pricing for any meal at any restaurnat in Saratoga. Bella has really good Italian food in a really warm, your mother's old home, type setting. They serve all the usual pasta, pizza, fish and meat dishes. There were no daily specials offered the day that we dined there.... More

After walking around Saratoga prior to a concert up at Villa Montalvo, we saw this charming yellow Victorian and reviewed the menu. We took a chance and were glad we did. My boyfriend was SO happy with his salmon ravioli, and I loved my perfect carpaccio and bruchetta. The service was friendly and fast, and the interior is like walking... More

We had a reservation elsewhere in town, but walking by this lovely oder home we couldn't resist checking it out. The minute you walk in you are enclosed by warm old wood walls and a sense of returning to your grandmother's living room.s ..but updated. The menu i

One of my grand daughters, whose birthday this year fell on the day after Thanksgiving, wanted to celebrate her twelfth birthday at a "fancy restaurant". I chose Bella Saratoga. Our party consisted of my wife and myself, my grand daughter's aunt and her two children and my grand daughters uncle, his wife and two adult children. While the restaurant is... More

After reading the reviews maybe I expected too much. But they were not busy and the food was good for a mall type restaurant. The saltimbocca and scallopini were both too salty , the coffee cold and service slow☹️ Really wanted this too be great.

We had our traditional Christmas Eve dinner at Bella Saratoga for the first time. We were seated promptly in the dining room which is the old front room of a very old Victorian house. Our table location is reson the reason for the 4 stars. The tables were packed VERY close to each other. And, of course, there were a... More

Had lunch as a group of four and we all loved the dining experience. We ate lunch upstairs and had the large dining area all to ourselves! The historic house has porch tables (with heaters) and downstairs options in addition to the upstairs. The menu is fairly extensive with lots of options. Three had pasta dishes and one had a...

There were 7 of us and, judging from their plates afterwards, they thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Two of us had the Cobb Salad, one had the Sole, and the others had Pasta dishes. The restaurant is located in the middle of the village of Saratoga, so it is always a pleasant experience to walk around afterwards to window shop.

Have fun al fresco with Bella Saratoga outside or in. Great for lunch with girlfriends, too. I've been more times than I can count...
