Montalcino provides the true Italian experience through ambience, excellent food and the feeling that you are eating with family. Some restaurant chains promise the same but fall far short because their food and atmosphere cater primarily to customers who do not understand that true Italian food takes meticulous preparation and top ingredients. My wife and I appreciate the extra effort... More

Everything is amazing about Montalcino's! Start with the consistently fresh and lovingly prepared homemade food that never disappoints, set amongst the most intimate homey and romantic atmosphere, topped off with impeccable and attentive service from the wait staff, and it all adds up to one of the finest dining experiences imaginable! Anyone who hasn't tried the Montalcino's experience really needs... More

After avoiding this restaurant for nearly six months because of the impression that it was super expensive, we finally visited only to find that there are plenty of great options in the $20-$30 range. Not cheap, but definitely not deserving of the $$$$ expense rating given on TripAdvisor. We recommend it with a few caveats. First, if you're not comfortable... More

This is a small, family run Italian restaurant. Food is prepared with care and love - you might ask how do I know. You can taste it in each bite. We enjoyed the antipasti platter, a nice selection of cheeses, meats and prawns. During this past visit we both ordered the lamb shanks, which were fall of the bone sumptuous.... More

This is an excellent restaurant featuring classic Italian dishes made from scratch. It has developed a real following in Issaquah so call for reservations. The restaurant is not large so it fills up quickly.

While pricey for Italian, food is consistently good. Diverse standard menu, with good adds by daily specials.
