Honestly, this place is worth the visit and then some. For the appetizer we had the mussels. This was the best bowl of mussels I have EVER had and I grew up in New England. They were plump, delicious and wine garlic parsley broth was perfect for dipping the toasted bread. The bolognese was fabulous too - such depth of... More

Where do we begin... let's start with Juri in the Kitchen (I capitalize the word kitchen because Juri takes this area to new heights)... if you think that the Olive Garden is Italian than you probably won't like this fine dining, white table cloth establishment...BUT... if you are looking for a most welcoming restaurant staffed with truly delightful people and...

It's the real deal! Prepare to take your time and savor the deliciousness! Fresh daily soup and pastas, salads, meatballs (best I've ever eaten) porchetta, great wine, desserts, it's ALL amazing! Staff is awesome too.

we've visited the trattoria on two different occasions and had different experiences. On the first, the restaurant was busy, but not full - my wife and I had a fantastic meal that did indeed remind us of our times in Italy. Wonderful charcuterie plate to accompany authentic antipasto (with pickled veggies, just the way you find it in Italy). Everything... More

My husband is Italian and we've lived in Italy for many years - what an incredible treat to have a truly authentic, amazing trattoria here in Bend! The food is consistently fresh and high quality - the entire staff - especially chef Juri is incredible and welcoming. You can't miss this experience!!

Make sure you have reservations as it is a relatively small place and very popular among those that seek top shelf Italian. Our server was most knowledgeable and helpful. The menu is limited but everything is fresh and superbly prepared. Pasta should be tried as sauces are most impressive. I don't know when we will return to Bend but when... More

We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. A different Italian than what we had experienced before but a nice change. The service was great and especially the hostess who was very nice about finding us a place outside as the noise level inside is very high. That would be the only downside of this restaurant. Otherwise, i would highly... More

Again and again Trattoria Sbandati is the best authentic Italian food. Love the food. Love the people and the environment. I started with the corn soup which was fantastic, and then followed by the Tagliatelle al Ragu Alla Bolognese. Wow, this is not spaghetti and meatballs, but pasta direct from Heaven's kitchen. If only the Pope knew!

We had a meal here on our visit to Bend and enjoyed authentic Italian fare. There is nothing fancy about the presentation on the plate but the meal had quality ingredients and flavour. The house wine went with our meal as you would expect and the staff gave us a friendly welcome and service.

Having heard this was the best Italian in Bend, we've tried to go several times and ended up showing up on the nights they were closed. Finally manage to go when they were open only to find we really weren't missing very much. The atmosphere is nice enough. I had an over priced cheese plate appetizer and the Tagliatelle Porcini...
