The food is always superb!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening!Thank you so much for making our birthdays such a special occasion. We always choose your restaurant to celebrate with our son a nd his wife since it is so close to their house and we love your choices of food. Thanks again.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh, homemade and inspiredBest calamari on the planet - and I know whereof I speak. Both the appetizer and the calamari steak are excellent. The poached pear salad is our favorite, but the chopped salad is amazingly good as well. Entrees are all top notch, but the fresh seafood is always killer - no matter what it is. They even make sausage that is out of this world. We've been dining there for two years now and probably a dozen visits. Consistently wonderful each and every time. They even fed us one day when they were closed but were doing a class in the kitchen. We'd been hiking and looked pretty pathetic I guess!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the foodWe are Italian food snobs and have struggled through the years to find Italian food that lives up to our standards....that is, until Italianisimo. Hands down, the best eggplant parmagiana we've ever had. They don't use oil or breading, so it is light and layered like lasagna (the way it should be!), and melts in the mouth. Their sauce is also fresh and delicious. The shrimp bisque was perfect--not too rich or salty, and full of flavor. We will return again and again.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceWe booked a reservation for around 13 for my sister-in-law's bachelorette party. Not knowing what to expect, we were all very pleasantly surprised. The service was phenomenal, even with such a large group. They were incredibly flexible with my changing group size, and my two time changes. The food was so good, I told my husband that we have to go back there soon! This place is kind of in a weird spot, but it's so worth it. Check it out :)5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GreatWe've been going to this restaurant since it opened in a previous location. The food is always very good, the service is great and it's very relaxing.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExtra orderMy wife liked their soup so much that she ordered two more cups to go so she could have it the next night5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good service!I went this restaurant with my wife and son on Mother's day. The menu was so helpful to choose our best dishes and the waitless made us a nice suggestion that we can enjoy through the course.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Italian in WoodinvilleWe always have a wonderful meal at Ristorante Italianissimo. The food is excellent, the home made pasta is great and the service is fast and attentive. Try it!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian RestaurantWe are new to Seattle. This was our first visit to Italianissimo. We made a reservation based on a close friends recommendation. We had a great time and the food was AWESOME! We love good Italian food and this is the best Italian Restaurant we have been to since we moved to Seattle. We look forward to our next visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, it was a reliableAs usual, it was a reliable good meal. I must mention on a take out night recently, we tried their pizza (which we/ve never tried in the many years we've been coming here) and it was very good. We tried some different meals on this visit; I tried a shrimp pasta and it was fine but not a favorite as the pasta was lacking flavor which is surprising since there was a lot of garlic, and a friend had the lasagna and thought it was good but not great. Like any restaurant, some things are done very well and others are okay. The service is really good and many items on the menu are terrific, like the pasta fiamo, the chcken dishes, the spaghetti bolognese, and their shrimp bisque. They have very good desserts as well.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEverytime ReviewWe go to this restaurant a lot. Every time it is great!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent home made pasta!I have never experienced a bad meal! All of the dishes with homemade pasta are excellent. Although the atmosphere is more "romantic" and not even close to Red Robin, the kids meals are HUGE and only $6. We bring our kids often.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's simply our favorite restaurantIt's simply our favorite restaurant, and has been for years...5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMService astoundsAmazing service.

The pastas were perfectly al dente and not over-sauced. The chicken al marsala with mushrooms was also perfectly cooked, tender and full-flavored. Very good selection of italian wines.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been going to ItallianissimWe have been going to Itallianissimo ristorante since it first opened in Woodinville under Luciano.

Even though the dining room filled up, it was still quiet and enjoyable. The food was served hot and was excellent.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place, good foodWe both had the pasta with gorgonzola and pancetta. My wife had the gluten-free pasta version, I had the regular pasta. Both were very good. The sauce is nice and cheesy, not milky like a lot of places serve.
Chocolate mousse for dessert was also quite good.
Recommended.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Italian in WoodinvilleRistorante Italianissimo was a surprise to us. We dined on the spur of the moment at this Woodinville gem and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food.
The service was good, and lots of attention was paid to the table without making us feel over-served.
We started with Olives and fried calamari which were both some of the best we've had outside Italy. For entrées we had a mix of pasta, fish and steak...all were amazing. Even when my daughter made a mistake in ordering, it was remedied immediately by the staff.
Well done Ristorante Italianissimo. We'll be back.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server Adrienne was greatOur server Adrienne was great and knowledgable.

Prices are very reasonable, the food is fantastic and always great service.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMItalianissimo is very muchItalianissimo is very much like its name. The variety of Italian options is large and creative. The portions are very large (larger than we needed) with excellent flavor and sauces. The five of us enjoyed each of our entrees. The wine list is more than adequate with some reasonably priced gems and stars. The ambiance is home-like with several well appointed dining rooms.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a group of 6 people andHad a group of 6 people and reserved the wine cellar.

A great local restaurant.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHard to find a good italianHard to find a good italian restaurant on the eastide - this one is quite good - all 6 of us really enjoyed the food.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood gem overdeliversThough this is the only real restaurant to speak of in our neighborhood, we'd go out of our way for this place-no matter where it was located. The food is great-fresh & made in house. The service is both warm & efficient, and there is a great list of local wines to choose from-by the bottle or by the glass. Every time we bring guests from out of town, they are surprised by the high quality Italian food in such an unassuming location. In short, I highly recommend Italianissimo.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food isn't really authenticThe food isn't really authentic Italian at all, but it is excellent! The flavor of everything I've tried at this restaurant are very well balanced. Service was great & the hostess was very helpful, overall a professionally run restaurant & not run by kids as most places these days.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love coming here, foodWe love coming here, food is always delicious and wait staff are friendly. We've taken friends from out of town and they have always been pleased. We'll keep coming back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of our favoriteThis is one of our favorite restaurants since moving to the Seattle area! Located in Woodinville, it is truly a gem great for small and larger parties, special occasions or just a night away from cooking. Food and service is just terrific.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant, amazing dessert!I've been going for years, and I have several favorite dishes I love to switch between. I try new things every now and then. They also have my absolute favorite dessert: Crème Caramel. If you're familiar with Flan, or Crème Brulee, forget about them. Nothing beats Crème Caramel. You must try it!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
