The food was really wonderful among the best Italian food I have had in Saratoga Springs. The service was good, the dining room is plain but comfortable, the prices are very good especially considering the sizes and quality. I have nothing but praise for Pennells to be sure and I look forward to going back.

One of the many positives about Saratoga Springs is it's large array of restaurants, cafes and pubs. One of the consistent standouts is Pennells which is why I chose it to celebrate my birthday. My wife had the steak dinner which was so big, I had it for lunch the next day! I had the zuppa di pesce which was... More

Pennell's is clearly a very popular place with locals. That can sometimes be good or bad. In this case it's a good thing. We had a reservation on a busy night during racing season. We were seated promptly. Service was excellent and food quality was as well. Would recommend!

This restaurant was recommended to us by some one from Saratoga Springs, it was excellent. We sat at the bar and the bartender this evening was very pleasant. The veal parmigiana and steak were excellent. Would definitely visit if I were in the area again.

Always eat here during track season and the food is ok. One item on menu I would not recommend is the eggplant parm. Eggplant is very bitter. You always get a good size portion for the $. Desserts are very good.

My son-in-law who lives in Saratoga recommended this restaurant. We went with our friends from Mass. We are from Conn. We were not disappointed. The place was everything he said it would be. The food, the service, the atmosphere and prices were outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Our friends were impressed.

If you are looking for quiet, intimate, romantic candle lit dinner, this is probably not your place, especially in mid August when the race track is in full swing. However, if you are looking for great food at a reasonable price this is a great place to go regardless of the time of year. I have been told by a... More

Although this place on a Thursday evening was packed, I must say that my husband and I were quite disappointed with this restaurant. The ambiance was ok, nothing special. The service with our waitress, Brooke, was excellent. But the food was nothing great. Our salads were fresh but mine was smothered in dressing. My husband's haddock was nice, but the... More
