My husband and I ate at this restaurant while visiting our children in Issaquah. I ordered halibut and these people served me a huge piece of white fish that was NOT halibut. I was so disgusted and offended that a restaurant would deceive their patrons this way. I couldn't eat it. I didn't even tell my husband until the next... More

My boyfriend took me here for our anniversary and it is a cozy restaurant, dimly lit with amazing food. They do have mini-flashlights on the table so you can read the menu, when I say dimly lit I mean VERY dimly lit. Which I actually liked, it felt more like we were having our own private restaurant to ourselves :)... More

Came here with friends for adults only "dining-out" night. We expected a lot more reading all the rave reviews and hearing from people. The appetizers were absolutely amazing with a sampler plate, but entrees were disappointing. We sampled each others' food as well as we ordered a wide variety including seafood, pasta, proteins---none of the entrees were finger-licking good, just... More

Hands down this is the best Italian Restaurant in the greater Seattle area! Montalcino's is family owned and they are from Italy. They know the true meaning of Italian food and it shows in the quality of the food, wine and service. The pasta is homemade fresh daily as many of their dishes. On my most recent visit I had...

Large selection of menu items. All super! Good service; even have small flashlights at the table to make reading menu easy for all.

The thing we love most about this place is that's it's small, and the tables aren't too close. You can actually have a nice conversation without shouting or asking your dinner companions to repeat all the time. Acoustics is a huge thing for our family because we're all about the conversation. We've never seen kids there, but we bring ours... More

I've been to Italy several times and feel they have the very best in food and dining experiences. Montalcino takes me back there with each meal. They are exceptional.

On our return from a long road trip to the Canadian Rockies and back through Eastern Washington we chose to have one last hurrah before returning to work. Montalcino presents an elegant Italian evening and accepted us as the road weary travelers we were. They treated us with a relaxed atmosphere, live guitarist, beautiful food, wine and ambiance in a... More

this family run restaurant is always a winner!!! It's rather dark, but they even provide flashlights to read the menu. This is great for a girls night or a romantic dinner.

Three of us were interested in finding a great restaurant in Issaquah so we selected Montalcino and made a reservation. Food was excellent and service was wonderful. We ordered 3 different items and shared them all. There are less than 10 tables so definitely call ahead. Highly recommend!
