been several times food is always super. I would like the specials to change occasionally
We were seated right away and ordered drinks. The ambiance and service are always great. Very personable and knowledgeable of the specials. We ordered the Halibut special with Risotto and Spinach in a lemon butter sauce. It was delicious! The bread , as usual, include plain and focaccia with hummus spreads and crackers. Another in our party ordered the salmon which is always a great choice with a mustard sauce. The other person in our party ordered the Chicken, Ricotta and Eggplant special which was also delicious. Cappuccinos ended this wonderful meal with dear friends. Our favorite local restaurant still.
Really enjoyed New Years Eve dinner. Lamb shank and Halibut were delicious.
Stunning first-time choice for New Year's Eve! Everything was perfect - service, ambiance, and of course, the food! Wow. Fantastic.
Christmas Eve was spectacular. Every dish was amazing. Joe and the staff worked hard making sure all the guests were happy. And WE WERE!
Thank You to Joe and the amazing staff at Annarellas for another fabulous dinner.
We went for Christmas eve dinner and it was lovely !!!
Great food and lovely wait staff
Went to Annarella for the first time when I needed to find a great restaurant to treat a relative to dinner on Christmas Eve! We both loved this restaurant. I found the Xmas decorations to be beautiful and charming. The food was an amazingly varied selection appealing to anyone's tastes or cravings and was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent and the dining areas and bar both spacious and cozy at the same time. Great atmosphere, wonderful food and service, what more could you want. We may have started a new Christmas Eve tradition by including Annarellas for dinner each year. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant to everyone and look forward to returning and trying more off their menu!
Food was excellent. Dining room was decorated for the season in good taste. Servers were very polite and attentive. Overal, a great dining experience.
Excellent food and service
My husband and I enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal of turkey with all the trimmings at Annarella Ristorante! It was a holiday, so perhaps a bit noisier than usual, but still very comfortable and relaxing. The servers were extremely busy but did not come across as rushing us through our meals at all. It's a great place for a relaxed atmosphere, excellent service, and delicious food.
The best halibut!
Weekend getaway in Saugerties/Woodstock. Celebrating two birthdays. What a find this place is! Service was exceptional and the staff was knowledgeable and paced the meal very week.
All agreed that their meals were excellent - from appetizer to coffee. If we are back in the area we will definitely return.
Just an incredible meal!! The food was absolute perfection, our service was wonderful, the atmosphere was pleasant... could not have asked for more! I had the halibut, my husband had the pork chop, our family had the calves liver and Pollo al Limone. Just delicious!!
My cocktail was pretty good. The wine selection was very good and the bottle we picked was very good as well. The appetizers were very nice (eggplant rollatini and Caesar salad). My daughter’s steak was overcooked. My wife’s fish was cold. The waiter seemed under trained because he should have made sure the fish came out right away, and perhaps he miscommunicated the steak order. We’ve been there a few times in the past and it was better. It was $250 not well spent. One experience doesn’t make a restaurant, so we will go back sometime in the future.
Best Italian Food in Upstate NY!
Iam in LOVE with Annarella...food made with high quality and love. You do not have to Italy for the fabulous food ..it is right here at Annarella. Tuscan Bean soup made just like in Italy. Everything we had was perfection and delicious. The homemade bread 🥖😘
Very attentive staff and owner. This is a GREAT mom and pop restaurant. Thank you all at Annarella 🥖🥂😘💕💐
Visiting the area and this wasn’t far from our hotel so we thought we’d give it a try! Spectacular! Perfect service and food and may I add the atmosphere was superb as well!
Very delish good ambiance warmth
Good variety of specials
One of our favorite restaurants
Lovely to have fresh flowers on table and pretty napkin rings
Bread basket very tasty and varied too
U can’t go wrong eating here
Nice place, great service. Unfortunately, the food wasn't good, except for the house salads. My shrimp dish was pretty terrible - you can never trust a seafood that you can smell before the waitress brings it to the table. That means it's not fresh. The dish itself was so bland as to almost disappear. The others in my party were equally underwhelmed. Maybe an off night, since it was a holiday evening?
Excellent food and service! They even had live music!
I love this place- higher quality Italian dishes- very good.
A warning- many people do bring very young kids who vocalize-
So not a quiet date night- but very good for family nights-
There were a number of solo dads taking their kids out for dinner-
And they had nice family dinner nights.
Great staff- attentive - friendly
Food is excellent but it was very noisy
Food is delicious, service is friendly and attentive.
Absolutely delicious food and wonderful service! By far our favorite Italian restaurant!
Lovely atmosphere, delicious dinner (risotto and salmon), attentive service.
Very nice bread basket. Salmon was very good. Chicken and eggplant parmigiana- very good.
Sausage with polenta and broccoli rabe - Good but the polenta had too much cheese.
Italian Ricotta cheesecake was nice but the almond paste in the bottom crust was too strong, an unnecessary addition for a delicate cake.
Very good food & service- parking is a little tight. Good prices.
Had a really nice dinner here on an out-of-town trip. It was really busy and the waitress seemed a bit overwhelmed but the bread was yummy and the food was good.
This restaurant never disappoints. The food is delicious and authentic. The menu choices lovely and service always attentive. One of our favorite go to's in the Hudson Valley. Don't miss this one.
Our first time there. The host was welcoming. The service was very professional (I believe her name is Helen) which is very hard to find these days. The food was outstanding and served very leisurely and piping hot when delivered. The pricing was very reasonable for this quality of food. No complaints here.
We had the burrata, clams casino, Colorado lamb shank with polenta, and tagliatelle with lobster. Portions were generous so there was no room for dessert. All pasta and main dishes come with a very nice salad. The wine list is quite extensive. It was a lovely two hour meal. Thanks to all at Annabella’s.’
Consistently great and varied Italian food in an out-of-the way-location.
The food is always outstanding and tonight was even more exceptional. Joe, the owner, sat with us and made the evening more special.
Annarella Ristorante was the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals
The selection was varied and the presentation perfection.
We were a party of four and all had different items off the menu and all were delicious.
A hidden treasure
Friendly, professional staff
Very nice and reasonably priced wine list
We'll be back!
Amazing food and service. As always !
Service & food excellent. Tina was our waitress and she made the evening a great experience.
Loved the food great find
Dined on a busy Saturday night and the experience was excellent as always. Service was outstanding and attentive. Our food (grilled octopus, salmon and scallop special) was cooked perfectly. Compliments to Joe and staff.
Excellent authentic Italian food. Would highly recommend. Lasagna was outstanding.
