Authentic Italian

I have loved this place for years. The meals are consistently delicious. My only complaint is I would like to see more variety on the menu or perhaps as the dinner specials each evening. The last handful of times we were there- there were no dinner specials to offer (other than maybe a steak but if... read more

Wonderful New Years Eve Dinner - set menu with healthy wine pours and delicious fresh Italian food as usual. Staff always so positive- our houseguest loved it also.

Good service. Fantastic food. Loved the pasta with clams and shrimp. Same with funghi. Small. Intimate. Bar is tiny but pleasant. Local. Great for taking guests. Not for children but they r accommodated.

Perhaps the food is good - wouldn't know as our pasta dishes were undercooked, therefore inedible. Customer service was the worst we've ever seen. The "manager" was so rude, we literally walked out. Won't go back and will certainly spread the word. Absolute WORST dining experience period.

This is a really good, smallish neighborhood place with food prepared with soul and care. We had excellent soup or salad and best pasta in town. Finished with a Bongo, an Italian cream puff with expresso and one of those rare dinners where all courses were winners.

Wowzers. I seriously crave their Bolognese. My only knock on the restaurant is dessert. Was dying for vin santo and cantuccini but not on their menu. Be sure to make a reservation even on the weeknights. Not a large restaurant and popular for good reason. When a town like Bend has so many great dining offerings this is one that... More

We went there with another couple for dinner, and although the food was good, we thought it was overpriced for the portions of food served. We started with an "antipasto" which consisted of a few slices of prosciutto and four tiny slices of cheese. We also got 4 very small slices of bread. The mushroom pasta was delicious, but again,...

Trattoria Sbandati is an authentic Tuscan restaurant plopped down on the West side of Bend. All the dishes are made by Juri Sbandati, who is the first in his family to move from Florence, Italy in five centuries. Juri is a perfectionist and it shows in his food. Don't expect anything that is not authentic, this is not Olive Garden.... More

Excellent execution from the kitchen and warm, attentive service. This is authentic Italian fine-dining so don't go if you are in a hurry. A fantastic place to settle in for a great meal with family and friends. I had the porchetta and it was fabulous, the meat had great marbling and literally melted in my mouth and the skin was...
