The best Cioppino in Sandpoint by far. This has got to be Ivano's signature dish. Very good! Ivano's is still Sandpoint's best Italian food. Yes, the restaurant is noisy as they never did get the acoustics right, but the service is excellent.

I had the Tortellini Ivano. It was one of the best Alfredo that I have had. CREAM-MY. I can almost taste it now. We sat outside, and it was a bit noisy, but nothing unbearable. Just when I thought the Alfredo sauce was CREAM-MY--we ordered...More

Very good italian. Homemade sausage is excellent. Bolognese sauce was very good. My spouse said the lasagna sauce was heavy on the tomatoes. Bread was good, but could have been warm. Service was excellent.

Our family loves Ivano's and we visit several times every summer. Menu is huge and the food is great. We really enjoy sitting out on the patio on a warm summer evening. Good wine list. One of our favorite spots in Sandpoint, for sure. The...More

Best Italian around, and the top in it's class until you get to Seattle - but even then it would be a contender. Pairing 5 star service with delicious, big family style portions of food, with a tastefully selected wine list (including award winning local...More

Amazing that we got some of the finest Italian cuisine anywhere in a small town in northern Idaho. The food was delicate and perfectly prepared - and sooo delicious. A must try if you are in Sandpoint, Idaho.
