If you're searching for wonderful Italian cuisine, classy/intimate atmosphere and attentive service Montalcino is where you should book your next reservation. I hope to visit again soon as the Lamb Shank is to die for and I'm not a big desert person but the homemade Tiramisu cannot be denied.

My goodness ..... make reservations now and GO! This place is well worth the drive or flight from wherever you are in the world. Go! The only problem is street parking, however the owner tells me it is OK to park in the private lot South of their restaurant. Ask about this when you arrive, as it may change. Parking... More

You MUST call in advance to have your table booked.. Agnello di Vino - should be softer meat. All vegies were overcooked, carrots were with black spots - no clean? Expensive place.

Authentic Italian cuisine that is always delicious with a fantastic, intimate atmosphere. 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.
