There will be a brand new restaurant on the scene in Saratoga this season. And what better than authentic Italian cuisine?
Nové Italian Restaurant, enter stage right!
Nové will open at 707 Route 9 in Wilton, NY (formerly Sergio’s). If you were one of those thinking how deeply Sergio’s will be missed because it was one of your favorite places to eat, your prayers have been answered.
And actually, this place will offer the same high quality Italian food people have grown to love from Sergio’s, but there will be plenty of new changes…
The restaurant has the same owner as Sergio’s, Lou Lazzinnaro (so we know already, it’s going to be good). Apparently Lou felt it was time for a change, so now he brings us Nové with new menus, new family-style dishes (in addition to the old family-style favorites), new single-serving dishes, an updated look and feel (inside and out); they will also be adding takeout, delivery, pizza and more.
Oh, and did I mention pizza? Okay, so I guess I did. Well, let me elaborate. From everything I’ve heard, this will be like real, Italian, wake-up-your-tastebuds pizza. They will offer brick oven pizza as well as traditional “Brooklyn style” pizza, and I can’t wait to try them both!
So you’re probably as excited about this as I am and wondering when will Nové open?
Nové Italian Restaurant is expected to open in early June. The location is just 5 minutes from Saratoga Racetrack (traffic dependent, I’m sure!), and it sounds like it will be a great place for family dining or to head with friends after a day at the track. And I’ve confirmed rumors that the prices are reasonable, and more importantly, there will be NO increase in prices during track season, which is a breath of fresh air for many of us.
The friendly greeting when you call the phone line for Nové (formerly Sergio’s) sums it up nicely:
“Hello, this is Lou Lazzinnaro, and thank you for calling Sergio’s. We’re happy to announce that Sergio’s will open for the season under a new name, Nové. Nové will still serve our classic, family-style favorites, but we’ve updated our design and our menu. The restaurant will now offer single-serving dishes, and we’re excited to introduce you to our new, brick oven pizza. Our entire menu will be available for take out and delivery as well. I hope you’ll visit Nové soon to enjoy the changes we’ve made.”
