I had dinner here while visiting Sandpoint and was very happy with Ivano's. The food and service were both great. I highly recommend this restaurant if you like Italian food.

Looking for a place to have some Italian food in Sandpoint. Looked on the web and this was 1 of 2 listed. It was a good choice. I read 2 google reviews where the people weren't too impressed. Well one lady ordered the "plain cheese tortellini and it came with ham which I get very ill with" she indicated the... More

We have always enjoyed Ivano's; dining in and taking home. It has never been more disappointing. The only thing consistent with its history and reputation was the wine and the tiramisu. It was otherwise uncharacteristically very mediocre.

Yum! We sat outside by the fountain. There is no escaping the road noise at the stop light but they do a great job with the greenery to give you privacy. Great service and recommendations. I'm not a food snob, I just enjoy it and the bread, chardonnay, and ravioli were excellent. Even the bite I snagged of my husband's... More

Good Italian restaurant. Quality ingredients. Fresh. Simple and tasty (we had the pasta). It is a big restaurant but it does not feel big. The service is very professional and attentive. Nice outdoor patio.

The food is excellent. Atmosphere is very nice. Love the Adobe fireplace. Wine by the glass selection is limited, but I like what they have. Service is very good. My wife and I enjoyed a date night here. Very pleased with the experience. Me and my 12-year-old son have eaten here, just the two of us, without feeling out of... More

We went out to Ivano's with a group that we met while cat skiing at Schweitzer at the recommendation of our cat skiing guide. The restaurant seemed pretty quiet for a Sunday night. Our server was very efficient, courteous, and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was very good and the wine selection was fair for a restaurant in this... More

This is a local favorite for its perfect combination of comfort casualness, carefully prepared cuisine and sincere/warm service. Plus the ambiance is just about perfect: nice but not stuffy. The acoustics aren't ideal because of the mostly hard surfaces but after a wine or two that quits being an issue. They have a nice outdoor patio when weather is comfy... More

The fine restaurant is a Sandpoint staple. Started by a real Italian from Italy, it offer family style dining at a slightly reduced price. Everything on the menu is great.

Interesting menu and wine list, but the dishes were bland and not spiced as we would expect fine Italian food to be.
