Gotchya's (Saratoga Springs)

Not much on this board about Gotchya's. We went for the first time based on a rec. Casual atmosphere. We didn't have a reservation and it was pretty crowded. Luckily there was a no show. We sat towards the back of the room so it wasn't too drafty. Looks like they have another room behind bar area (different room than bar, booth and table area where we sat). Hostess did double duty as a server. Service was fine, not rushed.

We ordered a reasonably priced red and had a small caesar salad and calamari for apps. A few of the calamari were a little chewy, otherwise nicely breaded and cooked perfectly. Bread was simple, fresh and very good.

For entrees we had carbonara and amatriciana (fettucini with carmelized onions, hot cherry peppers). Appreciate that the kitchen accomodated my request to leave the bacon off my amatriciana. Big pasta portions, we took leftovers home.

All the entrees and pasta dishes were under $20. Good food at a reasonable price. We will definitely go back. I may have finally found a good Italian restaurant near Ballston Lake that takes reservations. Not sure why they have kielbasa and pierogi on the menu?
