Saratoga Restaurant Week and Limoncello Ristorante

Bee Balm Gal's musings have been a bit dark of late so I thought I would lighten up today with a report of Restaurant Week in Saratoga. This is an annual promotion when a large number of restaurants in and around Saratoga offer three-course dinner specials for just $18.19.

The Handsome Husband and I headed out to Limoncello Ristorante where we had never eaten before. Their regular menu looked very tempting but cheapskates that we are, we stuck to the special $18.19 special menu.

The Handsome Husband chose Gnocchi Bolognese, "homemade potato dumplings with a traditional ragu of ground beef, tomato, mushroom, peas and Barolo wine." He nearly licked the plate.

I chose Pollo alle Noci, " tender cuts of chicken with gorgonzola and walnuts." Yum.

Limoncello's waitstaff was terrific - friendly, attentive, efficient. Food was served HOT and at a good pace. The HH* and I will go there again and next time, we will try their main menu.

Two thumbs up for Limoncello Ristorante.
