Anchoring Saratoga's vibrant downtown Forno Bistro offers a variety of rustic, Tuscan-style food rooted in tradition. Forno chef's use only the freshest seasonal ingredients to prepare dishes with respect to their flavors, appearance and aroma.
Forno Bistro’s rustic, Tuscan-style food is hearty and unpretentious with sophisticated flavors rooted in tradition. Forno’s food is always open to new interpretations and adaptations. Our chefs use seasonal ingredients prepared with respect to their flavors and aromas. The menu expresses a sense of hearth and home that defines the Tuscan style of life with many dishes greatly influenced by the use of the wood-fired oven.
Our award-winning covered patio comes alive during the summer with lush plants, terra cotta statues, copper fountains and beautiful wrought-iron fencing draped in ivy and twinkling lights. Combined with sumptuous drapery, classic lighting and full audio-video capabilities the patio is capable of handling private and semi-private events up to 30 guests.
The interior of the newly renovated restaurant is warm and inviting. The new appearance is based around exposed brick, natural textures, and reclaimed barn wood and metals. Century old corrugated metal sheets wrap the bar while oak, maple and pine tree bark accent pillars and walls. Reclaimed barn wood is used generously throughout the restaurant from table tops to wall panels. Over-sized mirrors and chalkboards adorn the dining room and menus are presented on reclaimed wooden clipboards and in leather journals.
Whether you are dining out for the night or hosting a private event, Forno Bistro provides a combination of rustic cuisine and exceptional service with a welcoming, familiar ambiance.
