    Only downside was the roofing job happening on the building next door, little loud at times when your eating outside, other than that was perfect food and service.

    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!

Also the waiter was nice enough but service took forever, it took them 15-20 min just to bring the drinks we ordered. The food was ok but nothing special

Food was simple but really delusions. Staff was really friendly and atmosphere was absolutely comfortable. This is the kind if place you can have really nice dinner without wearing black dress and suit. I can't wait to come back there during summer time.

    I brought my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday while staying in Leavenworth. I was looking for a special place that was a little more "upscale" than the typical touristy places in town serving German cuisine. We had a great experience with excellent Italian food selections ( the gnocchi were fluffly pillows of heaven and loved the panchetta wrapped prawns). I would return here in the future.

    3 of us had a wonderful dinner to end our last night in Leavenworth. Everyone had rye old fashion cocktails to start. Then we all had prawn dishes but prepared differently - with spaghetti; Puttensca style and oven baked. All were very good but the oven style were very large and butterflied to make them outstanding. Plus a nice bottle of Mt Heron roussanne. Highly recommend Visconti's for service (Ryan) and drinks & food.

    We celebrated our anniversary with a reservation that overlapped the annual tree/town lighting ceremony and had a great window view of it! An extensive wine list and Italian food selection. I had the apple-wood cooked chicken and veggies and my wife had their chicken parmesan, both cooked and tasted fantastic. Due to the ceremony there were a lot of groups and kids, so wasn't as quiet as we had hoped, otherwise it was a nice night out.
