We'd heard word-of-mouth mentions of this restaurant but discounted it because it was in rural Snoqualmie, in a tiny storefront location. BIG MISTAKE! This restaurant is truely a hidden gem, very small, with only 6 or 8 tables, but spectacular food. We were a party of 4, ordered one appetizer, 3 entrees and a tiramisu dessert, served family style (our... More

Excellent small restaurant with maybe a dozen tables. Get there early, or if it's a weekend night, be sure to have reservations. We arrived a bit after 5:30 on a Friday and the place was packed very quickly thereafter. Chef, hostess, and owner very visible and engaged with customers. Prompt service and great menu for such a small place. Extensive... More

They changed the lasagna...oh the horror...fortunately, the new version is still very good, and a massive portion...a little more spice than before... however, everything else was still as great as before...the portabella/gorgonzola appetizer was great, calamari was very good (in a red sauce, not the fried kind)...and the desserts...the Tiramisu, the Cannolis, and the Strawberries ala Maria is also great...and...

We recently were on vacation - visiting family - and getting married. We were browsing through this cute little mountain town after a day of hiking and were told by a few that 'this great little italian place was worth a try' - so - we went. Immediately upon entering the establishment - we were greeted by the server, who... More

My husband and I visited Gianfranco's after a long day of house hunting. The restaurant was fairly full but we were still seated quickly. Our server was friendly, happy and diligent about making sure we were taken care of without being pesty. The food was delicious and plentiful. As, we've just moved into the neighborhood I'm sure we'll be back... More

This was homestyle Italian food, excellent choice of wines, not a huge menu but the food was great and it was exactly what we were hoping for.

Stopped by for dinner last week after visiting Snoqualmie Falls. We were early and the only people in the restaurant. The service was great and the food was really good. My only complaint was the the portions were too big. 3-4 people could seriously eat 1 entree. I felt bad that we couldn't eat all the food and it had... More

All homemade... all served with a heartfelt smile... The food is fabulous, the atmosphere updated, clean, and romantic. What more could you want? This is a little gem.

Gianfranco had the best food I have ever had. My sister and my mom and I visited Snoqualmie and stopped here for dinner on our first night. The food was unbelievable and the people who own the restaurant and the waitress are awesome. We ate two if the three meals we had here. We had the smoked salmon -- Out... More
