There isn't another place in Issaquah or WA state for that matter that is as good. It just superb, the food, the service and ambience. I remember when my husband wanted to go there many years ago and I laughed at him. Boy, was I wrong. It is a family favorite although, it really isn't a family type place. It... More

This is one of the "off the main street" places that deserves a try. It is a small place (I think it seats around 32 people) and reservations are a must! On weekends, they usually try and have two settings per table so the service is pretty on spot to keep you moving. The food is really good especially some... More

We were a large party visiting from out of town, this restaurant came highly recommended from our boss. Excellent food and attentive friendly service. Great menu had the Osso Buco; was amazing, loved the quail porchetta and white truffle risotto special was also great. The Kobe filet was sublime and the lobster tail ravioli was perfectly cooked. The desserts were... More

One of the best dining experiences I've ever enjoyed. From the warm greeting right at the door to the live music throughout your meal, they continue to make you feel more comfortable by the minute. Not to mention some of the best authentic Italian food you can find in the area. I enjoyed every moment I spent at Montalcinos and... More

We have stopped patronizing Montalcino. The service has become pushy and rushed and the place has lost a lot of its charm.

I have been wanting to go here for long time, finally got reservation, (you have to have reservations, make them at least 1-2 weeks in advance) The service, and food are impeccable, if you love Italian food this is the place. One drawback, the place is small, when you make reservations they will tell you you must finish within 1... More

My wife and I recently ate at this intimate restaurant over the holidays. The food was truly amazing. Some of the best Italian we have ever eaten anywhere. The Italian singer Tony was equally impressive and added the perfect final touch to the evening. Great food...great singing. At times the restaurant gets a little loud because it is small and...

Small location so make reservations early. The turn tables quickly. Food is to die for. I was brought up with homemade Italian cooking and this is one of the best meals I ever had. Great Italian wines too.
