The Saucy Italian Bistro is a culinary exhibition of North Italian dishes, with piano string notes and dim ambient lighting adding intimacy to its served dining. White linen cloths furnish the tables, pattern carpet floors the walking platforms and vintage Italian style fans aerate the black-textured-ceiling room. A comfortable relaxing outside patio adds to the dining convenience at the Saucy Italian Bistro.
The restaurant has a separate brunch, lunch and dinner menu with North Italian staples priming the choices. Bistro's specialties are Italian strip steak, Tuscan scramble, calamari fritti, pasta lugano, pizza Bianca and grilled pork chops. Decked at the Saucy Italian Bistro is an extensive range of beverages (alcoholic and non alcoholic) to enhance the overall dining experience.
Saucy has been permanently closed for some time now.
This restaurant just sold to someone new, a group of people, apparently, so from here forward we will need to evaluate the place on a new basis. The previous owners had run another successful restaurant in town, Mediterranean/Greek, so it was not surprising that this place was so good. I hope the new owners continue with the tradition, but also expand the menu so that its not just northern Italian and heavy sauces.
We enjoyed great service and good food. The piano was an added surprise; it was very enjoyable. Natasha worked hard to make our experience a really good one.
The waitress (Jessica) was not very good. We were not presented with the specials, She forgot to order the appetizer, and one of the meals was served cold with overcooked pasta. The over all service was slow considering we were dining at 6 pm.
Always delicious and great service!
Food was good but my portion of chicken picatta was much smaller than I've had in the past.
Probably won't be back for awhile.
Whole time we were eating dinner the owner, her daughter and granddaughter were sitting next booth over and the few employees that were there that evening all hung around the table talking. Made us kind of uncomfortable.
Loved the live music (piano), prompt greeting and good service by both our server and the manager. Only thing that wasn't on point was the steak: ordered it medium but most of it was well done. Fellow diner commented that the name doesn't give it enough credit for how classy it is. Patio looked nice so I plan on returning during warmer weather.
I ordered the veal Marsala and my husband had the veal picatta. Both cuts of veal were quite tough and had little of the flavor of the respective dishes--a disappointment for my husband's birthday dinner. Service was very good and the wine was excellent as usual.
Excellent experience from the moment we walked through the door. Staff was outstanding and so was the food.
the customer service was awesome but aside from that, the brunch menu was not too great, they had things on their menu that they did not offer such as the scalloped potatos, they arent consistent with bringing out bread to the table, which is crazy but if one person orders off the lunch menu, they will bring it?!?! food took WAAAAYYY too long and we were one of the only people there. red chile was REALLY too salty! food was pretty bland.
The the waitress Tasha she was great she was outstanding she did a wonderful job always checking up on us making sure that everything was okay from the food tasting well to our drinks really like the place excellent place to eat great service will most definitely go there again.
The piano music was most enjoyable--not too loud. The food was excellent--lamb shank so tender the meat fell off the bone and a good veal piccata. We visit Montalcino every year so we splurged on the Rosso de Montalcino, an excellent wine.
Friendly, attentive service but this is not Italian food. The lamb dish is
ok but the sauce its cooked in is remarkably like the Greek joints in town. The veal marsala on the night we dined was all pasta with a couple of chunks of veal. It may be a nice place for a cocktail and an appetizer but the food is far from authentic.
waiter ignored us, took forever to receive dinner, had to ask for drink refills, pasta was not made properly, took a long time to receive bill - not a good night
The food quality was terrible and poorly prepared. Additionally, they were out of menu items for both food and drinks
The restaurant was very kind in getting us a table for a large party of eight when they never got the open table reservation. We really appreciated this and had a wonderful evening at the restaurant. Thank you so much!
We enjoyed it so much we sent our four adult kids there for Valentines. They loved it💕
This is the second time I have had an eating experience at the Italian Bistro. Sadly, I was disappointed again. My food was served lukewarm, the potatoes were under-cooked, chewy and cold and the taste of the omelet was nothing special for the price I paid. I was sadden just as I was with my first experience~that was just about the same as this one. There is an unevenness about the food. I had brunch for the visit and will not go back for brunch. When there-the restaurant looked to have many regulars, who look to be ordering off the lunch Italian menu. If I do go back-(because I like the location and the ambiance) I will try the Italian menu. What I ate off the brunch menu was not spectacular nor worth the price. The other time we ate at the Italian Bistro was for Valentine Day. Again, it was hit or miss-Our service for brunch was sketchy at best as well. Our server seemed to be in hurry and very busy. However-I did enjoy the gentleman that seated us-I just wish the food was good consistently~with different dishes to rave about to family and friends.
Amazing food and amazing service. An excellent dining experience. I highly recommend it!
Nice atmosphere, great food, and incredibly friendly staff. Totally enjoyed it!
