Great fun restaurant with excellent Italian food, great Martini's and long term excellent staff. My husband raved about his Veal dinner and I love that you can get half orders as the portions are large.

I had heard some good things about Ivanos, so I dropped in for dinner. We sat on the patio and apart from occasional street noise it was quite nice. The meal was very good, and service was great.

Sandpoint is a very small town...skiing in the winter and boating on Lake Pend Oreille in the summer. So Ivano's is one of the high end dining establishments here. We ordered two appetizers and a bottle of local Cabernet Pend Oreille. It was very good and our appetizers were delicious.... Bruschetta Al Campo and Formaggio Milanese ..photos provided. We were going to order a main course but found our appetizers to be filling. Management should consider printing a new menu. The current one is looking very tired. The outdoor patio is very inviting but too breezy and cool the day we were there.

Unexpected family run gem of authentic Italian cuisine. Minestrone was homemade and outstanding, meatballs were made using restaurant ground meats, and the bolognese sauce was fantastic (not too much tomato and with hints of oregano and fennel). Enjoyed a reasonably priced bottle of Pio Cesare with supper for a scrumptious and filling meal. Attentive service and pleasant atmosphere.

While visiting Sandpoint, I asked a local walking by if she could recommend a place to eat dinner.
She suggested Ivano's and it was wonderful. We ordered the Lasagna Bolognese family style. It was delicious. Great salad, perfect mixed veggies with the dinner, the lasagna bolognese was spectacular, and the dessert was a perfect finishing touch. We very much enjoyed it and definitely recommend.
