Amazing Italian in Bend!

My husband and I ate here on our babymoon in Bend and it was amazing! We were lucky and walked in without a reservation and got seated on the patio but I would HIGHLY recommend making a reservation because they turned a few people away when we were there who didn't have a reservation. My husband... read more

We were disappointed during our visit in July. After reading reviews we expected exceptional food and service, however we didn't receive either. Both of our pasta's were hard and not even close to al denti. My clams were undercooked and husband's bolonaise had no flavor. Only a few guests were there and yet the service was horrid. Slow and not... More

We have wanted to try this place for months now and finally got a chance. You can smell wonderful aroma before you even get in the door. I was hungry just looking at the outside diners plates. Seems very traditional to me, I had to ask for explanations on some of the dishes. The waiter was very friendly and helpful.... More

Hard to notice as it sits behind a gas station at one of the roundabouts at Shevlin Park and College Way. The food is excellent and the staff most friendly. The menu isn't too extensive but all the choices are good. We've eaten there 3 times already and will certainly go back

For an authentic Italian meal in Bend there is only Trattoria Sbandati. As the other reviewers have noted, this is a family owned and operated restaurant. All the food is freshly made and sourced by the very talented and passionate chef owner, Juri Sbandati. Traditional dishes of his home Florence, Italy are served with an assured, experienced hand using local... More

I loved our evening at Trattoria Sbandati! Its a small, semi-casual and family owned and managed restaurant located just outside the madness of the Bend crowds on the westside. There are tables out on the patio, and good dogs are allowed. Staff doted over ours, even offered them cool water while we drank our own beverages. The menu is not... More

Chef is a genius. This is up there with Zydeco and Ariana for best food in Bend (so far). The house made flat pasta is perfect. We moved from Santa Cruz California two months ago and this is better than any Italian meal available there -- even better than Lillian's. We went there as a couple and again for an... More

The comfortable and intimate feel of the dining room, personal service and excellent food. We'll be back! Our family call this their favorite Italian restaurant, but don't think the usual pizzas, ravioli, etc. The portions are not gigantic and are obviously prepared with great care. I enjoyed the corn/kale soup and a lovely egg dish with asparagus. My co-diners enjoyed... More

The restaurant is extremely similar to the restaurants we ate in while in Florence last year! Reasonable portion, fresh ingredients, terrific service.

We had a four course meal that we shared. Each course was great and what an atmosphere for good food and sharing with friends.
