Many thanks for making Gavin's birthday special with amazing food, drink, and personal service!
We look forward to returning soon!
If you know me you know I am at Bar Cantinetta every Friday. If they didn’t have great food with great service it would not be every Friday! If you don’t me: I am a foodie. Besides Seattle, I spend much of my time in Geneva France and Iceland also Italy but let’s add I love durian
Great food, staff, and ambience. I would definitely recommend for date night.
We visited Bar Cantinetta for the first time last night and had a fabulous evening. The fixed price five course menu gave us an opportunity to sample the best this kitchen had to offer, each course was interesting and flavorful.
When reflecting on the night with my dinner date last night, I said everything we ate and drank was made with love. You could almost taste the care and attention given to each course. We watched Hugo mix the drinks behind the bar, each one made so carefully and with pride.
The service was attentive and friendly, the setting was romantic, we sat inside but the patio looked equally as inviting. The windows were open so i recommend taking a shawl or scarf just incase you need it.
We will return and hope to see Dean and Hugo again, their service was fantastic.
Typically one of our favorite restaurants… The staff and food and Service are always outstanding. However last night the service was lacking significantly first order of drinks took almost 45 minutes to arrive seems a little unacceptable in these times
Another amazing date night out at Bar C. The food was great--the fried artichokes are a must! The service and atmosphere are what make it so special. In the days of COVID, it is such an energizing feeling to get a sense of normalcy. The new heaters make it comfortable to eat outside as the weather starts to get colder. With all that the restaurant industry has endured, it is so important to support the local restaurants, and Bar C makes it easy to feel safe. The staff is so amazing and personable. We will be back soon!
Perfect neighborhood italian spot! Quaint and charming.
It is always a pleasure to dine at Bar Cantinetta. The staff is amazingly kind and the food is delicious.
Food is excellent.
Outdoor seating very safe.
Indoor distances seem appropriate.
Food is exceptional.
Service is good.
Service was great! There were a few inconsistencies they need to figure out. They tell you they don’t have water, so they’ll do bottled instead. They fail to mention that they are still going to charge you even though they offer no alternatives or water otherwise. (Pretty sure restaurants aren’t allowed to do this). Second, their happy hour prices on their menu do not match what they charge you (it is an online menu so there is no excuse for not having it up to date). Lastly, they need to tell the customers when there is an up charge for an item. I was charged an extra $5 for GF crust but was given no heads up. These are small things that are easy to change!
Great food, drinks and service! The music was also very enjoyable and the bar has a very nice look and ambience! Definitely recommend checking out this place
came here on a friend's recommendation. had bunch of appetizers, drinks and shared some entres. my fav dish was the octopus - done just right and not overcooked. we'll be back.
Great, cozy place for date night!
The food was fantastic. Very different and lots of cheese!
Amazing service and very accommodating staff. That’s on top of great food!
We had a lovely dinner at this Cantinetta outpost in Madison Valley. They have established a nice little outdoor dining area outside. The menu had so many wonderful selections, that we had a hard time deciding! We ended up sharing 3 antipasti and two main courses all of it was very good. The service was on point and we were well taken care of from start to finish. We will definitely return!
Fantastic meal as always! Service was excellent and all safety precautions were followed. Can't wait to come back!
One of my favourites and weekly regular. Great care is taken with food and presented with friendly service. While there is certainly a neighbour component, it is worth the trip.
Outstanding Italian food. Small menu. Simple dishes. Great authentic flavors. And fabulous service and handling of covid19 restrictions. Thanks for an excellent and perfectly safe Sunday dinner.
Great food and very European feel. Server was pleasant.
The happy hour food was less than average and over priced. The happy hour cocktails were small at $10.00 EA. THE folding chairs were super uncomfortable. The Food was just OK. a little pricey. I would not recommend
They’ve set up a nice little outdoor space. Food was good and they have an excellent happy hour selection. Service was friendly and attentive- it was a welcome night out!
Fantastic place for any sort of event! Great Gluten Free options coupled with masterful cocktails. Our favorite place in Seattle
My neighbors introduced me to Bar Cantinetta soon after it opened. And I started coming with neighbors. And now it is a weekly event. Not only have I been traveling to Italy since 1966, but I visit a lot of Italian friends in Italy and here.
If I brought Italian friends here, I am certain they would say « just like home » oh! Assuming the dish is from their region! So, yes the food is excellent. You can have excellent service that is cold. But not here. The staff provides excellent service with a warmth that makes you want to come back soon. It is my regular Friday but I keep finding reasons to come other days too. You will not be disappointed!
Dinner was delicious! From the peach burrata, bolognese, to the tiramisu, everything was impeccable. Our server was attentive and sweet. We will definitely be back!
Bar Cantinetta is our neighborhood favorite! The best ambiance, food, and staff in the game. So thankful they’re open again!
Bar Cantinetta is awsome. The pastas are top notch, and we had an amazing scallops crudo for appetizer. Great place and thx for providing an awesome dining experience in these strange times.
Patio was sweet.
Such amazing fresh food! Great outdoor little nook to sit in and service was awesome!!
Fantastic place to celebrate my husband's birthday! The tables are all spread out right now, and they have outdoor seating. And of course, great food & wine!
This was our first time back since they reopened for seating, and dinner was outstanding. Hugo's Manhattans started us out, and they were delicious. We did the fried artichokes, and melon with prosciutto, with a small salad. Amazing. The star of dinner was the Pasta Bolognese. Just the best. They managed to keep a great environment, and every thing exceeded our expectations.
The food here is always amazing! We felt really comfortable with the new safety precautions the restaurant is taking due to Covid-19.
We celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary here last night. They really went out of their way to make it special for us offering champagne at the beginning of our meal. We felt really safe with tables spaced widely apart there’s also an outside dining option. The food was incredible and offerEd and in a way that we were able to enjoy each course. I would go back!
We had a wonderful evening at bar cantinetta...the food, the service and the ambiance did not disappoint! We are so glad to see bar cantinetta and the management and staff ooen and as excellent as ever!
Hugo & Team are amazing!
Using two gift cards was not effectively processed as most of bill was charged to credit card so it is taking a few days to get corrected thru manager.
One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Always so delicious, good wine selection & wonderful friendly staff! Thank you
This is a really romantic, warm, friendly, lively, and comfortable space. The staff was confident and welcoming. Even during this time of re-opening - they offered full service, and set up the interior in a way that with social distancing it still felt festive! Highly recommend.
This was our first restaurant visit after Seattle started opening up restaurants for dining-in services. The tables were spaced sufficiently apart which probably made for the quieter noise level. The food was fabulous as usual.
Our first dining experience in phase 1.5
Food was delightful, safety measures were in place without deterring from the ambiance in an intrusive way. Staff were attentive and personable. Overall great. The Bolognese is a staple and not to be missed!
