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...

Some of the best Italian dishes you will find anywhere. All the dishes are expertly prepared. The pasta with porcini mushrooms is outstanding. Excellent, very friendly service as well. My favorite restaurant in Bend, Oregon.

I've eaten all over Italy. Grew up in San Francisco. I'd like to think I know and love real Italian food. This place has it. I have seen people critical of it because they can't get in when it seems like there are tables. Because TS treats you like you are in Italy if you make a rez you have... More

The quality of food, menu variety, and professional wait staff distinguish this restaurant from others in Central Oregon. Prices are similar to other upscale Bend restaurants, although in the case of Sbandita there is real value for money. Absent language, it is very characteristic of Trattorias in Italy (okay, maybe a bit more spruced up). And even the prices,converted to... More

We had waited to go to Sbandati for a special occasion, expecting it to be expensive, but fabulous. It was good, yes, but just not as good as I had expected. Price? Well, we spent about $100 and shared one item from each course, including dessert and coffee and a glass of wine each. The mushrooms with gnocchi were the... More
