Great restaurant that had curbside pick up on Friiday thru Sunday during Covid crisis. Veal parm was a little tough so might skip that but chicken and pasta were great. Large portions included salad with dressing and their bread with herb butter. Support your local take outs until things rebound!

Old School Italian restaurant. Basic offerings, no specials available. Large and noisy space with professional service. Bread was very good, and garden salad was nothing special. I had the eggplant parmesan and my wife had the veal piccata ( substitute for the chicken). They were both ok, but nothing special. Huge portions so you won't go home hungry. If you are looking for traditional Italian,a lot overpriced,but with big portions you won't be disappointed.

The food here is very good and the portions are huge. Had the meatballs for an appetizer and the were large and very good. The sauce that they were in was delicious it had me scooping it all up with the bread. The salad nothing special. The drinks also nothing special. The entrees were huge and both were delicious and huge. There was no dessert special so that was a bit disappointing. Our server seemed preoccupied with a larger party table and focused his attention there instead of all his other tables. I would have rated this establishment higher just on the entrees but the inattentive server, unimpressive drinks and no dessert special lead to an average rating for me.

Although decor is outdated, I find that part of the charm. Food is quality with a menu that rarely varies. I had veal Marsala this time which is excellent. Nice fresh salad with baguette and herb butter. Never had a bad meal here. Also much quieter since the seating was spaced due to Covid. Really nice with a quieter meal.

So we are from California and took a trip to see races at Saratoga.Didnt know that getting reservations at Pinells was like a visit with the queen! We wanted good Italian food and were told this was the best! Tried three days,different times to no avail but hostess was very kind...while at racez,races, rained heavily.So I called to see if we could get table outside and got one table was ready,quiet,great attentive service and food was good Clams over linguini with red sauce was perfect and 24 classic! CHICKEN marsala was OK I like thinner chicken but sauce was good with lots of mushrooms. Comes with a small yummy farm fresh salad and excellent Italian bread.

Have probably had 100 meals here over last few years and even during track season had good service and excellent food . Last night after waiting over an hour after our appetizers for our entrees and the server literally disappearing we left cash for the apps and walked out !! Clearly they have been to aggressive in expanding and don’t have enough trained staff ..: I would AVOID , especially in high season

Had dinner with friends during the middle of the week. The service was good except we waited a long time for bread to come out of the oven. I had lasagna which was only average, the sauce was sweet which I do not care for especially from an Italian restaurant. My wife had fish which she said was good. The atmosphere is average as this is an older restaurant which could use a refresh. I would say this is just an average place to go to in Saratoga, many other better choices around.

Waited an hour and 45 minutes for entrees for a table of 6. Took 30 minutes to get our cocktail preset. When we questioned and asked for the manager she said she was the owner and basically yelled at us and was shaking until we told her to leave. Wont ever go back ther and family that lives up there been there all the time we’re shocked. She was a d I got idiot. No proprietor should treat clients that way. Shameful.

Long time Saratoga visitor. Finally made a reservation Food was ok, but took two hours! And A/C was marginal - inside temp was 82. Wait staff was nice and attentive, food was fine, but won’t go back… unexpected.

Another very good experience at Pennells after a day at the Saratoga Race Course. The service and food were what we have come to expect! My son won’t order anything but the “coaches steak”!

This restaurant is in a league of it's own. Every time we go, the food is consistently incredible. The steak is some of the best I have ever had, always seasoned and cooked to perfection!

This restaurant is an absolute “must visit” on my annual visit to Saratoga. I was skeptical on my first visit several years ago (you know how different people have a different opinion of what great Italian food really means!), but I have become a believer in Pennell’s. Great food and large portions - so come with an appetite! The only potential drawback is how loud it gets when the restaurant is full (especially if you are there after the track wraps up during the Summer meet and there are guys there telling the stories of their day at the track), but that is only an issue if you are looking for a quiet/intimate meal.
