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.

My husband and I had our New Years Eve dinner at Montalcino and it was one of the best meals we have ever had. Everything from beginning to end was fantastic. We wished we lived closer so we could go there more often.

I finally got back in town and went to Montalcino for a relaxing dinner with my wife. As always, a fantastic evening of wine, appetizers and a delicious main course. I always get a pasta dish as a first course and always the special of the evening. Pasta is home made and the sauces are always fresh and delicious. Portions... More

I made reservations several weeks ago for Christmas Eve. Today, the 22nd, I received a call from a "restricted" number asking for my credit card to hold my reservation. Otherwise, my reservation would be given away.i told the man, who did not identify himself to give it away. I did not believe in this practice. I have traveled worldwide &... More

I just enjoyed one of my best birthday celebrations ever (and I've had many) at this darling little restaurant in old Issaquah. The wine, food, atmosphere, and service were top-notch and expertly executed. Even though we were there on a Sunday, we were serenaded by an Italian singer and guitarist. I love that it's a family-run business with the kids... More

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.
