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

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.
