    We always enjoy Visconti's when we are in Leavenworth and were able to eat outside for lunch. Unfortunately we think the waitperson was covering everyone as we waited far too long for our food to arrive and the restaurant was far from full.

    Wife and I went for our 21st Anniversary, which I told them about when I made the reservations. I requested a table for 2 by a window or with a little privacy. Not only did they not mention our anniversary, but they sat us in the back middle of the floor. A table for 2 turned out to be a small patch of table top, big enough to hold glasses, but not much else. The closest window was several yards away and we were crowded on all sides. Our neighbor table was a party of 12 that had, quite clearly, been using alcohol most of the afternoon. The food was cold, the beer selection minimal, and the wait staff rushed and over booked on tables. There are better places to eat in Leavenworth.

    Reliably good Italian food and service. This last visit on two occasions people came up and asked how our dinners were. Neither identified themselves as employees nor were in any kind of uniform. We had to ask who they were (one was the restaurant manager).

    I cannot say enough about the food here. First of all, the bread and the dipping oil were amazing and I could have eaten this all night. In fact I did order a second dipping oil. We shared the Calamari Pesto appetizer - WOW !! Unbelievable! This could be a main course over pasta or even just on its own. Use some bread to dip into the pesto. My husband had the Puttanesca with prawns and I had the Spaghetti with Prawns as our entrees. Both our meals were fantastic. Our service was perfect - we had a wonderful evening.

    Be sure to try the cured meat from Visconti's own salumeria. We had their Brasaola, and it was heavenly. You can buy salamis downstairs if you still have craving for it. Visconti's also own the gelato shop downstairs.

    Have been in this 'state' for 17 years, lived in the biggest slum in the known universe (Seattle) for 17 years, been to Leavenworth 15-20 times, and how did we miss this gem!?!?!?! This is a wonderful place to dine, treated as if we were the most important people in the restaurant, but then again, people wearing flip-flops, shorts, tank tops, hats at the table (MUST be classless Seattle idiots) and other assorted Seattle stupidity, but the VERY PROFESSIONAL folks at Visconti's did their jobs treating everyone with the utmost integrity and professionalism (even stupid Seattle morons). Food was fantastic, drinks were great. Pls keep doing what you are doing Visconti's. YOU ARE A GEM. THE ONLY REASON to come back to WA after retirement.

    Started off a bit shaky - we arrived 15 min early so waited in bar. They forgot that and looked for us in waiting area. Went and inquired 10 min past reservation, they sat us in 2 min, window seat. From then on, service was great, food excellent. Server was very attentive, salad good, my pasta dish was outstanding. My guest was also impressed with her meal.

    The emoloyees were super nice. The food was a major dissapointment for me, my husband said his seafood fettuchini was really good but it was a child size helping and over $20. My veal was tender but swimming in sauce and hidden behind a mountain of mushrooms & EXTREMELY garlicky . Appatently there were no refils on iced tea we werent even offered one. All in all olive garden has these guys topped except for their encyclopedia sized wine list. This place should be dubbed a wine bar with appetizers.

    When making our reservation, we mentioned that it was our anniversary and requested outside seating. Not only did get seated as far back from the view as possable, our anniversary was never mentioned. I wouldn't recommend this restaruant for any special occasion that you might expect anything extra.

    I would not call Visconti's gourmet, but the food is well-prepared and plentiful with a varied menu to suit all tastes. Our antipasto salad was outstanding with the same high quality cold cuts and cheese carried in their deli downstairs, and it was plentiful as a side salad split between two or as a lunch entree for one. My lemon chicken was moist fleshed with crispy skin on the outside and lemony as advertised. The accompanying pesto potatoes were garlicky and rich. My companion opted for not particularly Italian but delicious pot roast cooked in dark stout - rich and delicious. Coffee was a tad weak but well-flavored to accompany rich desserts - bold but with a slight acidity. Very attentive service and nice ambience.

    This is the third time I have been to Viscontis in Leavenworth and it has always been exceptional. The food is wonderful and the service is beyond good. Everyone at this establishment is friendly and goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. I was with my son who had never been here and he was astounded at how good the food and service were. He said he would absolutely go back again he next time he is in this quaint little town.

    Loved the food at Visconti's - highly recommend the pasta with white clam sauce! Some of the best Ive ever had; not too garlicy not greasy, just right and very generous with the clam. We also tried the bruschetta which was delicious and the tiramisu (YUM). We chose to bring our own bottle of wine and pay the $15.00 corking fee which worked out very well and the waitress was excellent and very good about keeping up on our entrees and appetizers. Top notch restaurant where you can spend an hour or two without feeling rushed - just relaxing.

    All of the people we interacted with from the host to the server to the busser were lovely, and that was the only redeeming feature of our visit. The food came out in a very timely fashion, but it was NOT good, and certainly not worth the price paid. From start to finish the meal was extremely disappointing, and not anything that seemed fixable either - it seemed more to be just how the food was supposed to be served. It's definitely not anywhere I would consider returning or recommending, but at least the service and ambiance were nice.

    Great food - Terrible service Dinner and restaurant was great. It was my wife's birthday and that was the place she wanted to go. We have been there before and will go again. Our waiter was rushed to get us to order and then proceeded to ignore us for the rest of the evening. We looked past that and made sure to enjoy ourselves and the event.

    My husband and I wanted a romantic dinner out, and Visconti's accomplished that! They saved us a window seat overlooking the town and all of the lights. The food and drinks were amazing. I ordered a pasta dish and my husband ordered a steak. My only complaint was that our server did not come by enough. I think we saw him three times. The restaurant was full, but didn't seem crazy, yet our server acted like he had to run around to keep up. For instance, I wanted and would have ordered another drink, but our server never came by to ask if I wanted another. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and would absolutely go back. I just hope that next time our server makes the environment slightly more relaxing!
