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

Everything we ordered from Bruschetta to Chicken dish was very tasty and generous servings. My son ((((the Italian Soda expert))) said their Italian Soda is the best. We were there during off season and there was one waiter, so it was a bit slow, but good. Would suggest for special occasion or casual family dinner, plenty of options for everyone.

This is the best Italian food in the area. The service at all levels was excellent from the time we walked in until we departed. We where never rushed and we never had an empty glass. There is something for everyone on the menu and we have never had a meal that wasn't exceptional.

We have had dinner at Ivano's twice this week and both meals were just fantastic! The bread is to die for and the waiting staff are generous in bringing additional baskets. I love the meat lasagne which is authentic Italian in taste and presentation. Fresh vegetables are served with the meals. The salads are lovely and fresh as well. The... More

Ivano's is a wonderful Italian restaurant in a terrific setting. Outside in summer and inside by the cozy fire in the cold weather. They also have lots of gluten-free options, including the bread basket - something many other restaurants do not! Nice daily specials and the staff is exceptionally friendly. It can get very loud inside (especially when the alcohol... More

This is still our favorite place in Sandpoint. The fish specials are always excellent. Jim and Pam Lippi are the owners and perhaps the nicest people in the business. they do so much for charity!. Make sure to ask if Jim is in the house, he always tries to please. The red sauce is not our favorite because it is... More

We enjoyed a lovely early evening dinner here with friends and coworkers on a Saturday evening. We were surprised that the restaurant was not busier, but since we were a large party, maybe that was a good thing. Our server was a pro: extremely attentive, knowledgable about the menu and specials, and was able to make several recommendations to accommodate... More

This is normally a good restaurant, but I want to warn you, in the winter months it is cold in there. I don't know if they leave the heat turned down during the day or what, but the floor is cold and the air is also. We wore our winter jackets throughout the whole meal. I don't like to be... More
