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

This was our 4th visit to Sbandati. The prior 3 would be rated excellent. The pros: Although we had reservations made well in advance, we were seated in a small table right in front of the entrance. We were hit with a blast of cold air each time the door was opened. The hostess promised a better table and we... More

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
