Authentic Italian Cuisine in Quaint Issaquah, WA

If you've ever dreamed of going to Italy the experience their fresh, farm to table cuisine, you can get a real taste of true Italian cuisine without getting on an airplane! Plates are generous and use only the finest/freshest ingredients. The atmosphere is reminiscent of a Tuscany restaurant. The... read more

There is no way to do this food justice here! The food was so amazingly well prepared I am at a loss for words to describe it! A bit pricey but worth it! Eat here you will be pleased!

Romantic dinner...fresh pasta, seafood and lovely wine from their Italian family vineyard. Great menu selection and large portions. Complimentary house made cheese and a little dessert wine to finish the meal. A gem in downtown Issy!

I found this little gem by happenstance and have never been more pleasantly surprised. It is tucked away on a side street in Issaquah and has a wonderful ambiance. Most importantly, the service is stellar and the food is as good as any restaurant I have eaten at and is the best Italian food I have ever had. Fernando and... More

Order anything and you'll be happy. The waitress almost ruined the dinner - and all the money we spent for it as it is not a cheap date. She was rude. She rushed us. She didn't show up very often and she was in hurry to give us the bill so she could put her coat on and get out... More

Visited this small place after reading all the positive reviews and from the onset, I was disappointed with the rushed service and the up-selling of their featured bottled wine almost before we were seated. The food, although tastefully displayed on oversized plates, was overpriced, bland and underwhelming. They were anxious to get their table back so we left in less... More

Ate here on a busy Saturday night... There were no reservations available when I called on Friday night, but the fella asked me to call back early Saturday afternoon and maybe something would open up... A reservation was open and we arrived to a very busy restaurant... The first thing you notice is how small the restaurant is... And busy...... More

Have been to this restaurant twice and was disappointed both times. Overpriced, average food and okay to mediocre service. Love Issaquah and really want to be able to support fine dining in the area, but this is not the place.

I should start by saying that it takes a lot to get me to drive out to the burbs to eat (I live in Seattle). There are plenty of good options in the city that would be easier for me. That said, Montalcino is so good that I will definitely be going back. It's rare to find a restaurant with... More
