Bar Cantinetta Ratings and Reviews
Met a friend at Bar Cantinetta for dinner on a Wednesday evening. We got a reservation, but it may not have been necessary. I arrived first and ordered a glass of wine. The server was attentive, perhaps a little too attentive, but that might be okay. When my friend arrived, she also ordered wine. We ordered an appetizer that we shared. The server encouraged us to order our entree as well and he would time its arrival. We both ordered pasta. The food was excellent. There isn't a dessert menu but the server recited the three choices. We also ordered a cognac, warmed. Overall, the experience was very good. The bill was not outrageous considering that we had drinks, appetizer, entrees, and dessert. I would return. My only suggestion is that a small salad or vegetable be included with the entrees. Our appetizer and entrees included no vegetables other than the herbs in the pasta, so it was unhealthy in that sense.
This restaurant was cozy yet comfortable. Great ambience! We had the pleasure of sitting at the counter and interacting with the chef. Everything he prepared looked amazing. I have food sensitivities and they were very accommodating. Gluten free in house made pasta. Everything made from scratch. I had scallops and they made it Paleo for me. Great little gem of a place!
Too loud for old ears. How about some sound proofing in the ceiling ?
Millennial ears can handle the noise level, but it's Baby Boomer ears that have both the time and money to enjoy conversation along with good food.
Hugo & Jake, waiter & bartender, were outstanding.
We love Bar Cantinetta and visit it frequently. The food is excellent and the servers are always friendly & gracious. Outdoor terrace dining with our puppy is also a major bonus since we are so close (Washington Park residents) and like to bring her whenever we can.
Look forward to many additional delicious dinners at this fab place!
My husband had the bolognese pasta and it was very good. I had a pasta that was described as having an egg and Parma. Imagine my surprise when it came out as exactly the same thing as my two young daughters ordered-- Buttered noodles. Looked and tasted the same, smaller portion, $16 more. But mine had some sage on it. Our pecorino cheese appetizer was over cooked and stuck to the board. Over all, disappointing. I'd give it another shot though as it does have wonderful ambiance.
I'm a hunter of exceptional restaurants. Moved to Seattle a year ago, and have found several. This is the best find of the year. Three of us for Mother's Day. We all had different dishes, and each was remarkable. Wonderful pastas. As you can see, can't say enough good about this modestly priced gem in Seattle.
This is a superb Italian cuisine restaurant in the Madison Valley neighborhood of Seattle. It is easy to book through Open Table and the staff are very friendly and helpful with excellent food and great service at a reasonable price. We keep going back again and again.
Warm, inviting atmosphere - lighting, cozy setup, and overall quality make it perfect for a date or special occasion. It's like this nice unassuming Italian restaurant that has been dressed up and paired down at the same time - if that makes any sense. The decor is refined though not fussy, and the the menu is small but the execution of the food is excellent. Bravo.
The restaurant is rather cramped and rather noisy when full. However, the food is excellent. The risotto I ordered was cooked just right and had a variety of flavors incorporated into it. If you would like, you can sit at the bar and enjoy a drink from the well stocked bar and/or have a meal there.
