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.

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!

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.

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.

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?

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

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.

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.’
