Yesterday afternoon my wife suggested we go on a date to Sandpoint, Idaho. Specifically, take her out to eat in Sandpoint, Idaho. We researched places to go as we made the thirty minute drive through the beautiful North Idaho countryside and decided on Ivano's - right on the main drag. We were seated immediately but waited a bit for the... More

We were forced to eat out, since the weather made cooking at our tentsite really unattractive. That was to our advantage. A great Italian meal, respite from the weather, friendly service, a glass of wine. They bake their own bread; it was hard to stop eating all of that bread in the basket o the table. Good prices.

Ate here twice for dinner during a trip to Sandpoint. The food was really fresh and good but the highlight was the service both nights. Superb, attentive staff and nice ambience. The bread is great and so was the Caesar salad. Pastas were quality ingredients. The lasagna was the best pasta we tried. Highly recommend!

We have been coming to Sandpoint for ten years now. Each year we visit Ivano's with the kids, 5 teens. Everyone gets a good Italian meal that they really enjoy. They have a live music some nights and patio dining by the fountain. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. If you drive into Sandpoint I highly recommend stopping in.

Both my wife and I really enjoy having dinner at Ivano's. Over the years we have been here a number of times and keep going back whenever we are in Sandpoint. My wife had the cannelloni crepes stuffed with chicken mousse and I had pasta with rabbit, duck, chicken, housemade Italian sausage and wild mushrooms. Both were outstanding. The wine... More

Best Manhattans in the Northwest! Also good wine list.. Don't miss ordering the Bruschetta plate and Prawn appetizers.Both outstanding and could be a meal in themselves. Tortellini Ivano was one special item. We all wish we had ordered! Lasagna and spaghetti dishes all fresh and delicious. Great salads and bread. We ordered half orders of the entrees and still took... More

My husband and I have eaten here twice and were very pleased with the food and service each time. We learned to share an appetizer and an entree, as the portions are quite generous.

One night a friend of mine and I came here. The hostess made us wait for five minutes just move some tables. She could have done that after she seated us as it was not crowded at all. Then at the table, my knife was sticky, so I asked the hostess to replace it. She brought another sticky one! I... More
