Mio Vicino Saratoga Restaurant Review

: Saratoga was once in dire need of quality pizza. Thankfully, Mio Vicino has a good handle on it, with decent dough and enough toppings to make everyone happy. We recommend the pesto version. A variety of appetizers makes this place ideal for groups and frequent visitors, and kitchen staff go out of their way to customize dishes to your liking. Choose from a wealth of sandwiches and calzones, including chicken Parm, roast pork and the restaurant’s own version of an Italian sub. Try the hearty salads including scallops and spinach with corn and tomatoes, or go for the Greek salad. If you like pasta, you’re in luck; it’s all here, and in sufficiently generous portions. Beware that the kitchen has a healthy appetite for salt, so request that it refrain from liberal shaking.
