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

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
