Ivano’s Scores Well For Our Group

I am writing as the leader of a 28 person group of skiers who spent a week at Schweitzer Mountain Resort, just a short distance from Sandpoint, ID. We had a group dinner at Ivano’s and it was universally praised. When we arrived at our appointed time, Liz, the catering manager, had everything... read more

Terrible food and service at lunch. Cold food (kept in chaffing dishes under heat lamps) replacement was heated in the microwave. Soup served lukewarm. Had to ask for our wine twice because the server forgot. But the creme brûlée was really good! Cook it from fresh guys or at least serve it hot. The flavours are pretty decent but the... More

We dined here for the first time last weekend and we absulutely loved it. The wine was very nice and paired so well with our meal. We ordered an appetizer called Funghi Al Forno, which was baked crimini mushrooms with Gorgonzola cheese, garlic & marsala wine. The reduction sauce with this was amazing, with the flavors all complimenting each other... More

Food was very good, but...the restaurant was so cold, temperature wise, that I kept my wool coat on the entire time. My feet were freezing. Ordered a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp, but by the time I neared the end of eating the salad, the shrimp were ice cold due to the temperature in the restaurant. Silverware remained ice cold...

Be surprised by the excellent Italian cuisine in this local favorite eating establishment. The food is beautifully prepared and served. Wait staff is excellent. Wine selection is also excellent. Would recommend eating here for dinner when the entire menu is available for selections. Reservations are recommended.

Came in and it took a while to be greeted so I sat at a table. Used dishes from neighboring table bothered me since it reflected poor service... I was right! Ordered lasagna and a spaghetti bolognese came instead. When the lasagna came through, I had to return it since it was cold. They reheated it in a microwave. Taste... More

It is always good to visit Ivano's when in Sandpoint. It reminds me of a ski resort restaurant- very comfortable but with good hearty food. Portions are large but are also very tasty- so you some to take home. Service is very good. Save room for desert!

You won't be sorry you patronized this place. The food is always good and the service staff competent and gracious. Ivano's was one of the first restaurants in my experience to feature a gluten-free menu and in my family that is very welcome. Its location is basically in the middle of Sandpoint on the main drag, so easy to find.... More
