Uri (from Italy) and Kinley (his wife and partner here) have brought truly authentic Northern Italian cuisine to our small town in what is arguably one of the 3 best restaurants in Bend. Tucked into an unassuming little mini strip mall just down the road from the Central Oregon Community College... read more

High priced for average tasting food. Service was very slow and noisy to say the least. We won't be back but that's just us. The couple who went with us enjoyed it. I like my Italian much better.

When I visit Bend, Oregon to spend time with my daughter and grandsons, I always treat them and myself to dinner at Trattoria Sbandati. Usually twice during my stay. Yes, it is that good. Well prepared dishes and good service. A little disappointed that the veal chop was removed from their menu and replaced with a pork chop. Excellent piece... More

We attended a set menu for Valentine's Day and it was wonderful. All the selections were excellent with wine pairings.

We love northern Italian food, but hesitated in going here because of the slow-paced prix fixe dinners they used to have. Finally tried it with another couple and found out the menu was a la carte. Liked it so much that we went on February 13 for the prix fixe dinner, ironically, and loved it, too. It's a tiny place... More

Two couples for dinner. I had seafood and pasta. It was poor choice. Pretty tasteless. others had various tomato based e'ntrees I was envious. Very very expensive wine list. Fresh home made pasta is Good.

My daughter loves her pasta so wanted a great pasta dinner in Bend. This is rated so well and we hadn't been here yet so we tried it. The staff was so welcoming and friendly! Service was great. And she loved her pasta! We took desert back home with is and it disappeared quickly!

My brother and I dined on January 21st. The Duck breast was excellent. The salad, small yet tasty. Cheese plate same. I had the Cod with red sauce which again excellent but tiny portion. We were told that they only had 3 orders of Rib eye so my brother ordered it. Again sadly grisly, and miniscule for the $40 price... More

Warm reception when we arrived, spotless environment, service impeccable, food incredibly good. The owners and servers could write a "How to Book" on Restaurant ownership.

We travel to Bend often and always try to have a dinner at Sbandati. It is a small, neighborhood place and a good break from local Brew Pubs filled with noisy young families and revelry. The food has been outstanding each time we have been here. Not too complicated, but excellent combinations, seasonings, fresh, etc. the pasta dishes are super... More
