I’d say it’s the best and most delicious restaurant of the neighborhood. Admit it: even if you came to see Twin Peaks sights, wherever you’re staying, you can’t eat all the time at RR diner, I mean Twede’s café, or Great Northern – aka Salish Lodge and SPA. Twede’s café would be too simple and very diner like if you... More

At the recommendation of our daughter, we visited and had dinner at Gianfranco., a family owned and operated restaurant near Snoquaimie Falls. This is the best Italian Restaurant that we have ate at in the Seattle area. Outstanding service and food. It was our 59th wedding anniversary and the owner stopped by the table several times to visit and see... More

An outstanding experience at a romantic restaurant. The house salad has a house vinaigrette that is the best I have ever tasted. The portions are incredible (see picture, where this was a single, split portion). We ordered from the nightly special menu (rigatoni inferno, a meatball and Italian sausage specialty) and was in heaven with the recommended wine pairing (a... More

Inhale deeply - KNOW it's homemade! Generous portions - you could share a meal if you weren't hungry & still be full! We tried a nightly special & were delighted!

The wife and I spent a couple of days in Seattle, then drove to Snoqualmie, WA for an evening at the Salish Lodge. I was told about Gianfranco's by several individuals who has dined there in the past, even the valet at the lodge smiled when I told him where we were dining that evening, and said we were in...

What a treat it was too stop into this local Italian restaurant that we have been passing for years. The food was plentiful and amazing. Rich sauces, generous portions, and wonderful service made for a delightful evening. Everything was extremely well prepared from homemade ravioli to steak. We will definitely be back

My husband and I had dinner here a few weeks ago and we loved it. We both had the gnocchi, which they prepared specially for us, and it was very good. We had bruschetta appetizers and they were great too. We ordered the Porto wine and it was particularly good, still my favorite Porto wine to date. It was a... More

Although there are new owners since our last visit to this restaurant the meals, ambiance and service did not let us down. We did make reservations, (highly recommended) as there is limited seating. The portions are very generous, but most importantly the flavors are unique to real Italian cooking. It's a great place to enjoy a romantic evening or just... More
