Gianfranco Italiano -5-Stars!
This is the best Italian Restaurant in the greater Seattle area! Everything is fantastic, the service is great, and the prices are very reasonable. Even the desserts were light and delicious. Check out the menu on their website. There is something there for everyone. Don't think twice just go there, you will be glad you did. :-)

First Treehouse Point - Gianfranco
My wife and I went to Gianfranco Ristorante Italiano for our anniversary stay at Treehouse Point. I had the Manicotti Giordana - the sauce was a little on the tangy side but I could have been my choice in wine that messed with my taste buds. My wife had Linguine Contadina which was cooked to perfection! I had major food envy!

A surprising find
Found this small Restaurant to have a creative menu with very well made tasty items. All of the dinners were of large portions and nicely presented.

I planned a romantic getaway in celebration of my significant other's birthday, which included a stay at the nearby lodge at "Snoqualmie Falls". While initially booking our stay and perusing the lodge's onsite restaurant menus I decided to dine at another local eatery and happened upon "Gianfranco" in my search: turned out to be a great choice!
Made reservations for an early evening (6pm) dinner for two and we could not have been happier with the experience...(well maybe if it were free).....Everything turned out wonderfully: intimate setting, very welcoming host and hostess ). We ordered the "Lasagne alla Calabrese" and the "Pollo alla Cosentina" both very good dishes and large portions too!

Local Italian Find
We had the couples special for $50 which included wine, 2 pastas (my husband had the stuffed shells...yummy, and I had the penne
With checked and the Gorgonzola cheese sauce...amazing! I could have eaten just spoonfuls of the sauce on anything!) and it included dessert :-) we'll definitely go back if we are in the area!

First Class Food and Service
My husband and I ate at Gianfranco Ristorante a few weeks ago, and enjoyed it so much we chose that restaurant to have our 37th anniversary dinner. Very good food and the service/staff are friendly and do a wonderful job. I would highly recommend this place!

This local gem was highly recommended by neighbors. We meant to try it a long time ago, but never got around to it. We finally decided to when we had some out of area friends visiting. We were slightly worried since it was our first visit. It turned out to be the BEST decision! The service was superb, not rushed, and the server had a great welcoming demeanor. Everyone loved their dinner and the tiramisu was light and tasty. Overall - a great dining experience!

Best Italian on the East side
Gianfranco is a hidden neighborhood gem. Leanne and Joe make you feel like you are coming to their home to have a nice meal that they have prepared with love- in the comfort of their romantic bistro. The fresh pasta and sauces melt in your mouth. The lasagna is amazing. Mostly noodle, meat and sauce and the flavors are rich but not heavy. The pork shank is phenomenal (our favorite) and the portions are huge. My husband and I share two items family style and still have enough for the kids at home or lunch the next day. The wine list is beautiful and affordable- serving local Siguillo wines that are delicious. They gave us an amazing bread pudding to celebrate our anniversary and checked in with us and treated us like family. Great find!

Perfect Private Party Location!!
We love Gianfranco's and go there everytime we visit from California. When we decided to have a destination wedding nearby, it was a no-brainer that we would have our Rehearsal Dinner/Pre-Wedding celebration there. We couldn't wait to share this gem with all of our out of town friends and family. And as we expected, it was an overwhelmingly smash hit! Even the self-proclaimed "foodies" still haven't stopped raving about the food and it's two weeks later!!
And although we managed to throw a couple of unplanned curve balls, they handled them perfectly. Joe & Leanne, thank you so much for a night we won't ever forget!

Excellent lasagne and Vitello Saltimbocca... large portions and well made. Made for garlic lovers. Good prices for classical Italian food.

Overly generous portions, but great for a second night's dinner.
Food well prepared and some very interesting choices.
Will return to this restaurant.

Read about this restaurant on Travelocity and decided to try it - what a treat! Finally got my husband to eat cooked veggies as these were so good - perfectly cooked. Veal Marsala was wonderful as was the chicken w/artichokes. Must have the ricotta cheesecake for sure! We'll be back

Great italian food
Best Italian we have found on the eastside and the prices are very reasonable. It's a very small space, but the staff makes it work. We will definitely be back.

First time impression
I was very impressed with my first visit, I had a seafood pasta dish that was totally amazing. My girlfriend had a ravioli dish with pesto sauce and both had very good portions. The qualiyty of the food was also fresh and amazing that another visit is expected soon.

We love Gianfrancos. This was only our second visit, but we live very close and will definitely be regulars!

We truly enjoy this local, family-owned location. GREAT neighborhood feel.

Gianfranco is THE find
Gianfranco is the premier Italian food diner on the eastside. Food is excellent, servings are robust, environment is quite/homey, and service is excellent. I don't really want to give it a good review because I want to keep it Snoqualmie's little secret, but the owners deserve all the business and success they can handle.

The service was great. The ambiance was terrific. They brought bread immediately and their Olive Oil for the bread was wonderful - they had fresh herbs and garlic in the oil that is made a day in advance - there is balsamic vinegar on the table to add to the oil if you wish.
The past with prawns was delicious - I had 8 huge prawns with fresh tomatoes and basil so I was able to take some home for another meal.

Truly a neighborhood gem!
We live in North Bend and good food is a little hard to find out here. We were hooked at "hello" when we stumbled across this little Snoqualmie gem. The food is fantastic (you have to try anything with the Gorgonzola sauce), the atmosphere is warm and cozy and the service is great! Love, love, love! Our new favorite restaurant!

Great food, Friendly service
We love this place and have been three of four times. The food is lovely and the portions are very generous. As vegetarians we appreciate the the chef, Joseph, is always willing to make us something even if it isn't on the menu.

We loved it
We went for a dinner with a couple of friends and our 18 month son. Not the perfect age for dining out. But the people in the restaurant had so much love and understanding we had an awesome evening.
