In 2004, David Zecchini opened Forno Bistro inside the Old Firehouse building on Broadway in Downtown Saratoga. At the time, the interior of the restaurant was designed to be warm and inviting; centered on its stone hearth wood burning pizza oven and authentic, Tuscan-style cuisine. Dark woods flickered in the candlelight, metal sculptures and light fixtures designed to resemble dancing flames were suspended from the high ceilings, wine bottles on wrought iron racks ascended skyward and copper accented the front windows.
Over time however, even the brightest flames begin to fade; even the hottest fires begin to smolder. Now, 13 years after opening what is still one of the most consistently popular restaurants in Saratoga Springs, David has decided the time has come to reignite the fire and re-imagine the Forno Bistro concept.
Forno Bistro will close for renovations on February 26th with a target relaunch date of March 17th. Pictures and videos of the renovations will be shared on the Forno Bistro Facebook page and across all of DZ Restaurants social media platforms.
During the renovations, a pop-up style bistro at The DZ Farm called “Forno at the Farm” will be accepting reservations on March 3,4 & 10,11 between 5:00pm – 9:00pm. Reservations for “Forno at the Farm” are limited and can only be made by calling DZ Restaurants main offices at 518-583-1142. Forno at the Farm will be a chance for our Forno Bistro guests to explore new tastes as our chefs practice innovative techniques & prepare original dishes.
