Pizza in Saratoga Springs, NY

Hi all,

There was a recent thread about upstate NY pizza and no one weighed in on Saratoga Springs.
Thought a separate post might garner some responses.

I haven't had pizza in a while, and I am quite spoiled by the deliciousness that is DiFara's.

Seeing that I won't get to Brooklyn much anymore, I'd love to know where I can get a good slice here in SS.

I'd love to know about these joints:

Spring Street
Mamma Mia's

Thanks for the help!

  1. You didn't mention Marino's (sp?) on Beekman St. I hope it is still open, best pizza in Saratoga. Also the wood fired pizza across from the track, Bruno's used to be good as well.....

    1. Hi,

      I just looked up Marino's and see there's one on Circular Street, so I guess they moved.

      I also just found out that Bruno's (where I have heard mixed reviews) is for sale:

      If I check out Marino's, I'll let you know what I think.

      1. It's East Galway, not Saratoga Springs (a coupla miles west on Rt. 29), but Village Pizzeria blows the socks off of any pizza in Saratoga Springs. Nice buzz, too; complete menu, wine bar. Good beer list.

        Village Pizzeria
        2727 Route 29, Middle Grove, NY 12850

        1. Giacone's gets our vote. Terrific crust, good eggplant topping, arrives hot. It is a small local family enterprise, and sometimes the owner even delivers.

          Bruno's, alas, isn't what it used to be since changing hands a few years ago.

          1. Saratoga Has the worst pizza around. I've lived in many places. Giacone's has little flavor, Mamma Mia's is worse and Caputo's is inconsistant. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Becides they make you feel like you owe them a favor whenever you go in. Spring St. is pretty good. Best bet, go to Village Pizza, it's great. And for God's sake, do not go to Bruno's.

              I will third the recommendation for Village Pizzeria in East Galway. We usually get their pesto pizza (white pizza with pesto, mozzarella, olives and red peppers) and add ricotta cheese. It is fantastic! Their red pizza is great also. I live in Saratoga Springs but usually travel slightly out of town to get pizza. Publik House in Malta (Rte 9 south) is pretty good, Ferrettis at exit 10 off Northway (Clifton Park) has good pizza with crust rolled very thin, but with a puffy big outer crust, and for wood fired pizza Mangia Cafe in Clifton Park (exit 9 in same shopping plaza as Kmart). We love pizza and will travel to eat it out!
