We've been here many times as it is our family's first choice to go for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events. Be sure to try the specials - they're always great. The filet mignon with cognac sauce is better than any steak we've had at JaK's. The owner's... More

We went to Montalcino recently and there are not enough superlatives to heap on this one of a kind eatery. From their spectacular attention to detail (Fernando called us twice during the day to confirm and adjust our timing to exactly what we had requested), to their impeccable service to their undeniably spectacular food it was actually better than almost...

The food and atmosphere here are amazing. incredible food and great service from a family owned and operated place. Just be sure to call ahead for reservations, as the restaurant is very small,maybe 10-11 tables.

Had recently dinner with family at Montelcino (we went there many times before) and really love their elegant menu. It's Italian fare at its best. You cannot go wrong with any dish. Their wine selection is great. Service is excellent too. Love that place.

Fernando & Cindy run one of the best Italian restaurants in the Seattle area. He is first generation Italian which shows both in their food, hospitality and attitude. They make you truly feel like a part of the family!

Enjoyed the food, but the atmosphere was a bit over the top. Plus, the wait staff's outfits were more appropriate for a lounge rather than a fine restaurant. Ok overall, but not something I would be willing to pay for considering the overall experience.

This place is fantastic. The food reminds me of the best I had in Italy. The atmosphere is small and intimate. I have been to this wonderful establishment at least three times now and already have my next visit planned. Everything that I've had at Montalcino's has been absolutely delightful. In addition to fantastic food they have nice wines for... More

As a person who is from the NJ/NYC area and with a 100% Italian heritage, I can whole heartily recommend this restaurant. The food is superb, the atmosphere is cozy and the owner is warm and friendly, It just doesn't get any better than this place! Extra perk... the lovely guitarist/musician who comes to your table and sings to you.... More

5,051 miles from Issaquah to ................... Lucca Italy but only 12 inches from plate to mouth for a taste of Tuscany! Wonderful Northern Italian cuisine prepared by Ma Ma Italiano in the restaurant's aroma dispensing kitchen. No misses on this menu or list of nightly specials accompanied many nights by live music.
