What Insiders Are Saying
Bar Cantinetta is a small, quiet Italian restaurant in Capitol Hill with homemade pasta, pizzas, and a lot of romantic feels.
It was so loud in the restaurant that we had to yell to each other in order to be heard. doesn’t much matter what the food is like when you can’t enjoy the overall experience - which includes talking with your dining companions...
We have always gotten better service than we deserve.
They are very flexible. They care. They serve you like
you can not fail to want to come back.
Wonderful service and outstanding Italian cuisine. No wonder it’s hard to get a reservation here! Grazie mille!
Charming little restaurant. We don’t come here enough!
Love the always great food and great service here. We felt like regulars on our second visit.
The service is beyond what you might find elsewhere in Seattle,
unless you visit a real upmarket place with uncomfortable pricing,
and likely noise.
The appetizers were DELICIOUS! Artichokes & burrata - so yummy! The pastas we had came out cold and undercooked, so I think the potential is there, but the presentation was sub par. Wine options were nice and the ambiance was quaint and cozy. Wouldn't go back for dinner, however I would go back for apps and wine.
First time for us at this restaurant, but we’ll return again soon! I’d never heard of this restaurant prior to Seattle restaurant week, and took the opportunity to try a new place. So glad we did! Fried artichoke appetizer was really fantastic. Tagliatelle ragu was very nice, with pasta cooked perfectly al dente and the sauce, while not plentiful, was delicious. Great ambiance, and a very welcoming staff. A great experience!
We went during Restaurant Week. Our salad and artichoke appetizers were terrific. The second course of paperadelle Bolognese was good, but we thought would have been better a little saucier and a little more flavor. We are looking forward to going back and trying their pizza. We loved the atmosphere and service was great.
Incredible food! Went for a date during restaurant week, and everything was done to perfection. Very romantic ambience in a small quaint restaurant. Would definitely recommend.
We enjoyed our dinner at Bar Cantinetta. Food was delicious and seasonal. Service was outstanding.
A great small restaurant with great food and a lively vibe.
Amazing experience! Loved the restaurant
Small intimate setting. Delicious food
We had a lovely dinner at Bar C recently. The staff were so accommodating and kind, and both of our pasta dishes were delicious. It was our first time at the Madison location and we loved the intimate feel of the place.
Lively neighborhood place (one of several locations of the "Cantinetta" brand), with out-of-this-world pasta and a very energetic vibe. Food was expertly prepared. Burrata appetizer was terrific.
Cool concept! Great Food!
Wonderful dinner on a Thursday night. The pasta and steak were out of this world!
Every meal I have had here has been excellent. They are very consistent. Small place that focuses on quality over quantity.
Wait service was amazing and food was impeccable.
Best value in the Madison Park area. Our "go to" spot for a tasty meal and friendly service.
The menu changes frequently and the cocktails are delish!
2nd time. Great food. Great service. Interesting menu and good happy hour!
Absolutely love this place! We had a special day to celebrate together, and they helped us celebrate with a corner table, complementary glasses of bubbly, their usual top-notch service, and accomodated dietary requests with ease and creativity. Thank you!!!
The size is very reminiscent of a European restaurant. Excellent food & service- nearly always full
good food and good ambience make it very cozy neighbourhood dining !
Enjoyed a nice dinner with friends. Small intimate setting with good food. We ordered the clams and flatbread during the happy hour and then stayed for dinner. Both the salmon and the risotto were good.
The space is small with tables packed very close together. The noise level was the loudest we've ever encountered. The menu, while good, is very limited. We will not return.
Had to wait 30 + mins to be seated even after my reservation. Food and cocktails are great!
Phenomenal service, food, and atmosphere. Couldn’t have picked a better place for date night!
Fantastic food. Comfortable vibe. Excellent experience.
Excellent service with fine Italian cuisine. Great wine menu. Conveniently located in the Madison Valley. The pizza was true Italian pizza. The pasta was wonderful!
We love Bar Cantinetta for the food, the wonderful staff, and the ambiance. Truly one of our favorites!
We cannot wait to go back and try more of the selections.
Bar Cantinetta is a favorite of friends of ours so we decided to try it on our own one Friday evening. We arrived a bit early because we did not know if it would be difficult to park. As it turned out, we were able to park on the street a block away. We had our pick of tables and chose one in the corner so we could sit next to each other and talk. It was perfect. The waitress came promptly and announced that we were still in time for Happy Hour-an unexpected bonus! My husband chose their house Manhattan, made with rye whiskey, port and smelling delightfully of oranges. We selected the Insalada Mista and a pizza from the Happy Hour menu. The salad dressing was light and flavorful on the red leaf lettuce. The pizza had a nice crust but was a bit on the cheesy side. We shared both and they were delicious and filling. We probably should have stopped eating then, however, the Dungeness Crab Risotto from the dinner menu proved to be too enticing to pass up, so we shared that as well. It was creamy and full of crab meat. We also shared the Tiramisu for dessert. One thing we appreciated is that we ordered , except for the happy hour items, each thing seriatum. There was no rush even though the restaurant was full when we left. The bartender, Hugo, was especially delightful and attentive.
Went there on a first date. Excellent venue!
Good selection of foods; cozy table for two; noise level stayed manageable throughout the evening.
Great food all around. I got two apps and my guest and I both ordered entrees and dessert. This is a spot to come back to for sure.
We had our dinner al fresco outside and it was delightful. Great food, great service. I had the pasta and my friend had the Italian pizza. Both were delicious.
Always enjoy this restaurant. Service is great and food delicious.
This restaurant was good! It's very small, so you have to squeeze between tables and sit on benches, but the food was fantastic.
This is one of our favorite restaurant in Seattle. The food is always excellent and the service never disappoints us. I highly recommended.
