Our favorite go to in Bellevue for food and atmosphere. The only down side is every dish is so incredible, making a final decision on main course is super hard. Recommend going with those that like to share and you will know what I mean.

We arrived on time for our reservation but the restaurant was very busy and it took over an hour for them to seat us. When they did finally see that's they had to see this outside because there were no seats left inside. I can understand a restaurant running behind because they are busy but we waited well over an hour to be seated. Our host apologized and supplied us with some free appetizers to try and make up for the issue. We still had a great time and the food was very good but I was shocked at how long it took for them to seat us. We might as well have just walked in off the street with no reservation.

The food was mediocre at best, I probably can cook better and I am not a good cook.
Upon leaving the restaurant my clothes and even my face mask smelled like their kitchen vent. Bed ventilation! yuk.

We have dined at Cantinetta Bellevue many times and always loved it. Unfortunately this will probably be our last time. The food was bland, gluten free requests not well attended to, food brought out at inconsistent times, and diners seated and ordering well after us received their meals before we received our first appetizers. I get that it’s a hard time in the restaurant business and we love supporting our local favorites, but for the rare times we venture out these days we want to annoy the experience.

Food took a very long time to come out (45+ minutes) for salmon and pasta. The salmon was charred on the bottom.

The food is consistently amazing at Cantinetta. We are so happy they survived the downturn. Our server Sarah showed up just as we wished for her every time. Bellevue City expanded outdoor dining space so there are twice as many tables. The perfect outing for a warm summer evening. Hubs wished there were more meat options but I was happy with the choices.

Hands down the best restaurant in Old Bellevue. We are regulars and have been for years. The fresh pasta made in house is always delicious as is everything on the menu. We are so happy Cantinetta Bellevue made it through the Covid shutdown! Looking forward to our next great meal!

Food was good. Not a lot of choices. Service could have been better, a little on the common side for such a nice restaurant, It could have been friendlier and more professional. The waitress was almost intimidating.
