Cantinetta - Bellevue
As always, amazing dinner and super friendly staff. The seasonal menu with fresh ingredients is always well thought out and full of surprises.
Amazing and great food. Service is amazing.
Sarah Our server did amazing job.
lovely ambiance, really liked the food. However, the owner should explore how your restaurant is operating. We had a wonderful dish is served on a cold plate arriving lukewarm. Top restaurants will warm plates before serving. ditto the bread, very nice bread served cold. Wait service very perfunctory, recommend visit some higher end Italian restaurants to get an idea of how top service is performed and then training the staff.
Perfect ambiance! Romantic and perfect for our anniversary. Flexible with our reservation, drinks good. Pork belly to die for. Only complaint was they were out of the only item we came in for. Ricotta raviolis, I was bummed about that :( and our ribeye we shared was cooled down by the salad on top. Flavor was amazing so we didnt complain And the gnocchi was my favorite!!! Panna cotta delicious! Over all great restaurant!!!
There was 11 of use and we had a great time. Amazing food and service. Sarah the server is amazing.
Top notch Italian food! Small, intimate with great service. Highly recommend!
Amazing cuisine. This was our second time dining there. We will definitely return!
Food was sooo soo delicious! Their chef is brilliant! Everything from the service to the atmosphere was very inviting and warm. I really recommend it for people who enjoy a casual fine dining experience
We usually eat at Carmines and could not get in with our large group so we decided to give Cantinetta a try. Pleasantly surprised at this little gem in the same neighborhood. Love the bartender with a great sense of humor and perfecto expresso martinis! Food overall pretty good. Ambience is very fun and lively (although I admit our group was not quiet and there was another large group there at the same time ) it is just a smallish room with no separations so if you want a very quiet romantic evening, this may not be for you. My only request and what would have made our experience even better is to please watch the portions of food. The raviolis were delicious but seriously the size of an appetizer plate. The other plates were sized perfectly and we had enough to eat. Those who ordered the ravioli, however, were pretty disappointed. Regardless we will be back!
Very loud inside. Food was delicious though a little expensive for the size portions. Will return!
Staff was attentive, but also left us to sit and visit long after eating. Burrata appetizer was dreamy, bolognese was hearty, and their Manhattan is one of my favorites.
Amazing local restaurant with Great service
We love Cantinetta! The food is always great, the ambiance terrific! and we got a light show this past Saturday, with the lightning storm!
love this place! have never had a bad meal here. excellent bar as well.
We had a lovely dinner with friends. The service was relaxed yet attentive. The food portions were perfect and flavor elegant. We enjoyed the entire experience.
Absolutely incredible dining experience in every way. Perfect place to celebrate a birthday. Our server, Sarah was wonderful and she made the occasion memorable! Can’t wait to dine again!
Relatives in town!
It was good food very expensive was surprised nice to sit out side but it is on a busy street.
authentic Italian food, small portions but that was ok because it was rich. Small menu ala cart.
the waiters were all very nice it was just slow service.
Cantinetta is a jewel of a bistro with side walk seating on Bellevue’s Main Street. If yo want quiet and more private ask to dine inside. The food and the wine list is excellent and service close to excellent. It was our first time and we will definitely be back.
I don't visit Bellevue very often but when I do I try to visit Cantinetta for the food and wines and service - all excellent.
Thank you for another great evening.
Food was outstanding. Portions a little unrealistic to price.
Amazing local Restaurant with great service.
Been coming here for years and just adore this restaurant! The menu is well curated and is only comprised with the fresh ingredients for that season. Focus is on fantastic ingredients that shine with beautiful flavors to complement them. It’s the basis of Italian cooking to have dishes that let the ingredients shine. We had the Pici pasta, gem salad, antipasti (omg delish with amazing prosciutto and roasted pistachios), roasted carrots with touch of ricotta and spices, and the beef tenderloin....beef tenderloin YES! Their rub and special green salsa which is such a beautiful herb accent with olive oul and a touch of vinegar. We had a fantastic meal...:the service amazing and knew every dish and wine as well to advise us....i will be back at Cantinetta!!!
The house salad was literally just packaged mixed greens with vinaigrette. No shred of carrot, cheese, or tomato. I don’t expect a lot from a house salad, but if it’s literally just lettuce, it should at minimum be good lettuce, not packaged greens anyone can buy at a grocery store.
Both our pasta dishes were decent, but nothing special. Mine with speck was a bit too salty and my husbands bolognese was a bit runny.
Good enough that I might eat here again if someone else really wanted to, but not good enough that I would recommend it.
We love Cantinetta. The service is great, the drinks are great, the food is great and the ambiance is great as well...We will be back many times over.
Amazing food, service and ambience. I wish I recalled our servers name. She was awesome as was the team around her.
Overall great service and the food and drinks are a great value.
The employees really take extra time to make you feel like family.
Wonderful restaurant with great food and ambiance. I go there every time I'm in town.
Friends gave us a gift card for Cantinetta. We had the beet salad which was very good. My wife had Cavatelli with fennel sausage that was also good. I had the halibut. I think. I'm used to halibut steaks but this was thin and more flaky than any halibut I've ever had. The taste was okay but a bit too fishy. We ended with desserts of Panna Cotta and salted caramel gelato. They were the highlight of the meal. Overall, this was a good dinner but nothing special. We were glad someone else paid or we would have been disappointed to pay as much as we did for the food we had.
The food and drinks were great. The menu is somewhat limited but makes up in quality and not quantity. The prices are very reasonable.
Very nice Italian food, great energy, terrific service
We're heartbroken. Cantinetta has been our go to place since it opened. Dinner last night was a complete failure. We sat for 20 minutes and finally some one other than our waitress came over and offered to order drinks for us. Another long sit and finally the waitress showed up to take our meal order. The burrata was gritty and rubbery - though beautifully presented. The shrimp and preserved tomatoes were good but someone apparently tried to stretch the fregula pasta with peas which made no sense in the dish and killed the flavors. The Pici with peavines and speck was so salty that we couldn't eat it and the speck was burnt. I was hungry I picked the pasta out but left the rest. All the while we were trying to get the waitresses attention and she would look at us as she walked past and ignore us. I finally got up and ordered straight from the bar. Hopefully this isn't the future but I'm worried.
We had a lovely meal, but did find the chairs for the outside dinning a little small. My gentleman friend had trouble getting comfortable.
Outstanding food, service and ambience!
Birthday dinner for my hubby! It was our first time here and we were blown away by the food! All handmade pasta! Everything was excellent- food and service!!! I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for AWESOME Italian food!
Other than being loud, the atmosphere at Cantinetta is good; warm and relaxed. The menu has always been somewhat limited but we have always found the quality and flavor to be really good. This time, we did find the Secondi dishes to be VERY limited; two steak and one fish offering. We will definitely return.
Third or fourth visit to this amazing restaurant. Hand made pasta with simple, super fresh ingredients that add delicious bursts of flavor, unique and delicious cocktails, fantastic desserts. The seasonal menu is smallish but incredibly satisfying. Late crowd. Cute bistro setting gets crowded so make reservations early. Wait staff is fun and engaging. It is somewhat noisy when at peak dinnertime, but almost perfect otherwise.
Fantastic service, and delicious food as always!
It was a very nice meal in a very nice establishment. The authentic Italian food was perfect.
Friendly staff, comfortable accommodations, and most importantly, delicious food. We will absolutely return.
