Cantinetta - Bellevue
Just ok? But Covid is weird and probably just me.
Lesser options on the menu
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.
Menu choices are always fresh.
Professional, courteous, friendly folks.
Great local restaurant with amazing food and service.
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.
Usually our meals are always fantastic here but for whatever reason, post lockdown, the food has not been as good.
What a surprise. Wine was great, food was great, and our waitress was amazing. I will be back.
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.
Extremely accommodating and food was great
It was perfect! The food, ambiance, service, everything was great. This was our first time at this restaurant & happened to be during covid, we felt very safe & comfortable! We left very happy (& full) & would highly recommend to anyone. We will be back for sure!
Fun eating outside on the street.
Ate outside during covid times... excellent food and service
Lovely summer evening sitting outside. Food was good, not large portions but very tasty.
Great food and atmosphere. Pasta was delicious.
We love Cantinetta and love eating outside...it was just a little loud due to the traffic noise though.
Excellent food and timely service! I highly recommend the burrata and the bolognese! Great value as well.
Excellent food and drinks. Clean restaurant and fast service.
Food took a very long time to come out (45+ minutes) for salmon and pasta. The salmon was charred on the bottom.
Great food and service in a socially distant restaurant. All the staff were wearing mask yet cheerful and attentive. It was a great meal!
Seriously good food with friendly staff. Our waiter was able to help us put together the perfect dinner courses to give us the right amount of protein, veggies, pasta we were craving. Excellent date night.
Amazing food, Amazing service, clean and safe, highly recommend.
Love this place! Amazing food with a great late night vibe.
Always love the service we receive at Cantinetta! The food is consistently good.
Neighborhood favorite. Excellent food, great service, relaxing atmosphere.
The food was affordable and delicious! The wait staff was friendly and informative!
We sat outside. It was lovely as usual. Thank you!!
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!
The best gnocchi I have ever had. The watermelon gazpacho -- amazing.
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.
Great food. It was a nice chill environment, with a unique menu
Birthday dinner with friends, was nice to catch up in person as Covid has kept many from going out.
We sat outside so lots of fresh air.
Unfortunately my meal was
Anniversary. Scott took great care of us upon arrival and Kevin was a great server.
The staff at Cantinetta are always so great (as is the food)! We love coming here. Always lucky to nab a spot on the patio when the weather is good.
Amazing as always! So glad to have this open again! No food like it on the Eastside!
We both had the Coper River Salmon it’s was phenomenal!
