Make a reservation and go! Fantastic service, charming ambiance and authentic food. We've eaten our way through Italy many times and have to say this was on par with anything we had in trattorias from north to south. You have to make a reservation and you have to do it days in advance.

But first, make your reservations. It is a small space with limited seating. We arrived shortly before five o’clock in blue jeans. When we stepped in the door and I saw a sea of riservato cards on every table, my heart sank. We were not dressed and did not have reservations. First the girl asked if we could be done... More

Cozy, charming restaurant with a delectable menu. A word of caution though, the servings are large. You could easily share one entrée; however, it's so tasty that you won't want to.

My wife wanted to try this place, in our own town for her recent BDay dinner. I said Ok, made the Rez, at prime time on a Friday night. Got our table early, that was great, the staff seemed a little stiff at first, but warmed up quickly. Nice solo guitarist, singer, belting out Italian and French songs... Nice background... More

Montalcino was recommended to me by a couple that are foodies. Would not have found this lovely restaurant on my own. Little Issaquah has an amazing Italian restaurant that Seattle would be jealous of. Service,food,wine was like stepping in a restaurant in a small Italian town. Make sure you make reservations

We celebrated our 15 yr anniversary here after relocating to Issaquah and had a wonderful meal. We split the lobster ravioli as an appetizer and I had the filet, which was delicious. My husband had the seafood dish that was similar to Bouillabaisse, his only criticism is that it should have come with a starch or a large piece of... More

Montalcino hosted our son & daughter-in-law's wedding rehearsal dinner two years ago, and we were looking forward to returning again with them and our new granddaughter. We were totally impressed with the quality of food and service then, and they haven't lost a step since. This family enterprise is small, with maybe a dozen tables, so make reservations. We came...

Just walking into this slice of heaven makes me happy. It has everything. Great food. Wonderful service. It's small, intimate and they make you feel special. Aren't I lucky that it's 2 blocks away from my house. You have to go. Pricey yes. Totally worth it.
