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

Wonderful accommodating dining experience. Without a reservation we were treated to a sumptuous, savory dinner. We started with a delectable cheese appetizer complemented with aged balsamic vinegar. Our first course, a pasta with truffles sauce, and for the main course a veal chop with arugula salad. We enjoyed a lovely red wine, and we completed our meal with a delightful... More

For the 1st course we had a pasta dish with grated black truffle, and truffle oil, so creamy, deliciously cheesy & melt in my mouth wonderful. Very extensive wine list. Really nice people. Thumbs up to Trattoria Sbandati! We are... More

This is the second time I have eaten here. It is wonderful. The house wine is a typical Chianti style with no pretence and simply wonderful. This time I had the zucchini carpacio I have never tried this in any restaurant. As you might know, zucchini can be a bit bitter raw if it is not preparred correctly. I must... More

Our family of 5 rated this restaurant The Best Italian we have EVER experienced. My 20 year old son said the steak with balsamic reduction was his best ever. Started off with the delicious meatballs for appetizer. All the the pasta dishes were so fresh and authentic to our memory of Florence. I hope that the owner will write a... More
