About

People say Italians don't eat to live, they live to eat. Life revolves around their food culture.
It's about simple preparation of a few quality ingridients, and it's always 'delizioso'.
But it isn't just about the food, it's about taking the time to enjoy life while eating.
At Brunello, we hope you'll find a little piece of Italy and enjoy great food, great wine and great company.

We had Lasagna and Cannaloni. Both appeared to be reheated. Edges of noddles were hard.
It was still good but not as good as last time.

We've been here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is always very good. We're always hoping they're going to bring back the chicken cannelloni at some point but even without it the menu is great.

My husband and I came for date night and the location was good. We were greeted promptly and it was nice inside. The problem is the food. I think I could have picked up a $6 frozen diner that would have been better. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs and i had a chicken pasta dish. The sauce was bland and the pasta was awful, too thick and really the worst pasta I have had. We won't be back and I really question the 5 star reviews. Olive Garden is 10 times better and that says a lot because they aren't that great.

This is a delightful restaurant with a personal character. The food is real, the staff are real, the ambience is warm and friendly but still allows you to feel you are have a special evening away.

This a the place to go to get away from all the stresses of everyday life and feel special.

This restaurants food was good but very expensive, I think when you pay 18.00 for a pasta dish they could throw in a salad which is very inexpensive to make, they might get more business if they did, we were there on Sat. and it was pretty slow.

We always enjoy going to Brunello's. It is a Snoqualmie Ridge neighborhood great Italian restaurant. They have a new menu with a lot more pasta items which was good but we did miss the Antipasto that they have taken off the menu.

This was a lovely dining experience. The owner Tony took care of us personally. I ordered one of the Gnocchi dishes and it was spectacular! Highly recommend, especially for a date night.

My wife and I went here for a dinner on Valentines and had a great time. Now the menu does not have that many vegetarian choices, so I asked them to do a veggie dish for my wife who is a full vegetarian. They did a great job with both or our meals. The meal was staged correctly, and I would rate the services as excellent.

Excellent food. the Lamb shanks were amazing. The Barolo is a 90 on Cellar tracker. We love the restaurant, food, wine and service.

Great small place in Snoqualmie.

We were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary. Don't normally go for Italian, but decided to try it. Really great food. After all the holidays the place was sparse of customers. Definitely not because the food was bad! Up in Snoqualmie Ridge. Right across the street was a park. Lots of tables space outside for dinner when the weather warms up. Will definitely go again. Prices were reasonable. Great beef/barley soup.

It's a small restaurant. Cute atmosphere but our server was flat and non attentive. He brought our check without offering dessert. Changed his clothes and waited for us to leave.

With cloth napkins (but no table cloth), this is a 'upscale' relative to most restaurants in the area, but it is still laid back and kid friendly.

I've had a couple meals with some variation of red sauce and they all were winners. I had a wine-sauce dish that was not as good.

The outdoor seating is on the sidewalk opposite a park and it is enjoyable to sit outside and watch kids and families playing and walking around.

We had a nice time. The service was friendly. The restaurant is nicely design but nothing great. The restaurant was very quiet on for 7:30 on a Saturday evening. The appetizer and salads were excellent. My wife's main dish was very good and my was good. They were accommodating to make changes for our side dishes. Although we don't live in the neighborhood we would drive there again and give another visit.

The reception was cold. The website featured menu items that were not on the menu at the restaurant. The wine was good; my salad was good but my husbands salad was brown! We both had Veal Parm and could barely cut it with a knife. Dessert was good but not great! Overpriced for what you get.

The Eastside is not known for having delicious Italian cuisine. One exception in Kirkland, Paradiso, another is Tropea in Redmond, and of course Brunello. Unfortunately, Snoqualmie is not that convenient for many if you don't want to make an evening of dinner. Restaurant is small and quiet, has an excellent wine list and generous size portion. Two people could easily share a salad when having an entree , especially if you want dessert. I had veal piccata and asked for pasta instead of roasted potatoes with it. Only disappointment was red sauce on pasta...sauce was delicious but would have been better as a side with just some olive oil. Would have been nice to have had the choice since I didn't think to ask what would be on it. Service can be a bit slow, but if you aren't in a hurry, it is well worth visiting. Good reasonably priced lunches...but again the convenience factor is an issue if you don't live in the area

I'm new to the Snoqualmie area and I was very pleased to find this gem in my back yard. The space is fairly small and intimate, yet very comfortable and quiet. My friend and I were well taken care of.

We happened to go on a Monday and enjoyed a bottle of wine that I wouldn't have normally ordered, because all are half off on Mondays. Great way to expand my wine horizons.

I went with my wife for Valentine's dinner. We've been here before and have never been disappointed. The only negative I had with this visit was their limited Valentine's Day menu. I understand why they did it, just wish we'd seen the menu beforehand. Our meals were very good but I ended up having something different from what I was hoping to have. They were extremely accommodating and made me a hybrid of 2 dishes. Next time, please indicate you plan on having a special menu.

First time at Brunello Ristorante and we were very pleased with the service and the food. I had squid ink infused fettuccine with scallops and smoked salmon and it was really good. My wife had Brunello chicken and thoroughly enjoyed as well. We went Valentines Day at around 6pm and they were busy, but it didn't impact the service. Our server was on top of things and very warm and cordial. We would go back.

Very Italian. Delicious food and wine, warm, freshly baked bread, tasty olive oil/balsamic to dip it in, unhurried, friendly service, fresh flowers on every table....what's not to like? We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here and plan to return.

This was our first visit. We went early on a week night, so it was very quiet. We are hoping to go back again, maybe on the weekend when there are more people, and we can get a better feel for the place. The food was delicious, service was great.
