I've been there a couple times now and as an italian i can tell that is really good, the portions are huge and the service is really nice and quick . The place isn't really big so you have to make a reservation if you want to find a spot during weekends. The only thing is that the place smells... More

Hard time enjoying dinner when the chef/owner is out on the sidewalk smoking... The food is salty, and it is hard to overlook the dirty habit on the sidewalk.

We had read the reviews prior to choosing this restaurant. The warning of don't judge a book by its cover is very appropriate. It is small but mighty....mighty delicious.....mighty friendly. The portions are huge and shareable. Our delightful server warned us to only order one Caprese salad as it was large enough for two or three people. She wasn't kidding.... More

We have been to this restaurant before several times and always rated it well, but last night we tried some different menu choices and we were absolutely delighted. I ordered Bistecca Ai Ferri (9 oz. Filet Mignon grilled and finished with Portobello mushrooms, garlic, and Barolo demiglaze) and my wife ordered Gamberi Pizzaiola (Prawns sautéed with fresh tomatoes, oregano, parsley... More

They were nice with our kids and flexible with our ordering. Overheard other table ordering gluten free pasta as well. They were on top of things but a reservation on a Friday or Saturday night helps!

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
