Excellent meal and service. Attention to appropriate distancing and safety measures were apparent. Delightful evening!
Easily our favorite Italian food in the Seattle area--we will keep coming back as often as we can.
Cantinetta has done an excellent job of socially distancing the tables and keeping the front door open to allow for air circulation.
More importantly, the ambiance was fantastic, the food was delicious and our server was wonderful. We’ll be back!
Look no further if you want true Northern Italian style dishes. Everything was delicious.
Thank you for remaining open with this level of quality. Highly recommended in Fremont / Wallingford area
We have a wonderful dinner at Cantinetta on Saturday night and our server, Ryan, was fantastic.
Wonderful food and service!! The pasta dishes were so delicious!
Wonderful food and service! Celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary there. Loved it!!
The service at was excellent so there's not much more to say about it than that! The food however was okay. We had melon + prosciutto (the ham was kinda warm which makes the fat melty and that's just gross. Also, that combo of sweet and salty doesn't work - melon doesn't stand up to the the saltiness of that meat!), the Fig I barely tasted it). Oh, and truffle polenta...anything with truffle should be amazing, amiright? Well, it was creamy, but I barely tasted the truffle and there were 3 big slices on top. What the heck? Truffle is a powerful flavor and it didn't come through. We also had the lemon panna cotta for dessert which was tasty but ordinary.
We sat outside (we had a little puppy and although a small threat of rain the umbrellas made us feel protected.) The food is always excellent, as well as the cocktails. This was the first real trattoria in the neighborhood and I have been coming here for years, with the quality reliable. The chef(s) keep the favorites, and add some seasonal inventions often worth trying. Looking forward to supporting you through these tough times.
Thank you so much for your support!
Fantastic food and service once you sit down. But be prepared to wait for an outside table even if you have a reservation. Also, if you’re sitting outside during the warmer months, avoid the side next to their parking lot as the smell of the garbage bins can be a deterrent.
We want to love this place more than we do. The food is usually fantastic, definitely a notch above most. However, this time, the Tagliatelle with strawberries fell short. Nice idea, but the strawberries were so diluted in flavor, it didn't really work. We also find this place intolerably loud. They need acoustic treatment, seriously. I could barely talk to my spouse and had lost my voice by the end of dinner. We skipped dessert, mostly because we couldn't deal with the noise anymore. It's a real shame because we would be regulars if the noise level was addressed. Sit outside, and expect some stellar hits on the menu, but also misses. Servers were super friendly and attentive, however meal service is not speedy, so expect to hang out for a while - which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Always love this place , never disappoints !
Exceptional food and service as usual!
I’ve been there twice, and I love it. The food is amazing, and the stuff is pretty cool!
The homemade pasta was delicious and so was the risotto. Will definitely go back.
Loved the food. Loved the wine. Still nervous about covid. But overall a great experience.
End of summer/start of school year
It was such a pleasure reconnecting with one of our favorite restaurants in our neighborhood. The restaurant's staff does a wonderful job; ensuring you feel safe and protected during the Covid era. We dined outside with social distancing and masks were worn by all restaurant staff. The food was delicious; with fresh ingredients abound. The wine list as wonderful; offering a nice selection from the Northwest and Italy. We look forward to our next dining experience in the near future with Cantinetta!
First restaurant dine-in experience since COVID. It was wonderful -
Good vibes and lovely service. We had drinks on one of the little couches out front while we waited to be seated. Both the hostess and our waitress were so nice and accommodating. I really liked both wines I tried (their rose by the glass and a Nebbiolo), and the gnocchi in a green garlic/preserved tomato cream sauce was amazing. Just a really cute, chill neighborhood spot.
We’re so happy Cantinetta is open for business again. We missed our favorite neighborhood local spot.
Good food as always but not as flavorful as in the past. We will definitely be going back we have always loved this place
Fabulous neighborhood Italian boutique restaurant. Robust selection of wines by the glass. Excellent pasta dishes -- hard to choose just one! This time I had a summer special, ricotta ravioli with foraged mushrooms and favas. OMG it was fantastic!!! I am never disappointed here.
Really lovely wait staff and the food is amazing. Nice location and I’ll be back!
Wonderful food as always!
Always love this neighborhood gem! Fresh pastas were outstanding, as were the flank steak and salmon. Great wine selection, including wines by the glass. Our only disappointment was that their Zepole had changed and no longer seems to have the Nutella filling inside the donut-hole-like pastry, making them rather dry compared to their original version.
Great experience, great food. Great for a celebration of any kind. Seating outside was great.
Delicious food and pleasant location. Our waiter was able to make some great recommendations and she took amazing care of us. Excited to go back!
For our first dining out experience in the CV-19 era we chose to go to Cantinetta for our Anniversary as we wanted to support a small local spot that we love and we knew would do a great job with all the new protocols without sacrificing the overall experience. We were not disappointed. As always the food was great, but the service (masks on) was still stellar and warm - just as we have always experienced. We will look forward to our next dinner - maybe on the patio when it is slightly warmer, come on Seattle summer, get here!
Cantinetta is wonderful. I love their menu and consistently delicious, beautifully made pastas. Great service and a quiet ambience makes this one of my all time favorite dinner destinations in Seattle.
We come here all the time. It’s great for a nice dinner and Date night. We love Katie and the whole wait staff and the bartenders too! Awesome drinks, fantastic food, superb experience! Thank you for another great evening, Cantinetta :)
Dinner was outstanding!! Great antipasto, great pasta, great dessert, amazing wine! Couldn’t have been happier. Loved our server Amber too!!
Did a great job with COVID distancing, service was excellent, and food was amazing!
Very nice service and dinning experience. Food was fresh and creative.
In 5 years of Seattle culinary exploration Cantinetta is consistently our favorite with hand made pastas and fresh ingredients. We love this place.
Love Cantinetta and so happy you’re in our neighborhood. I like all the Precautions for phase 2 that you’re taking. One suggestion, the outside seating is tight for servers to circulate and they need to come very close to diners. Is it possible to walk outside the fence on the sidewalk to maintain a bit more distance? Thank you!
Wonderful food, great service, nice atmosphere! Well done!
Always low key and chill vibe outside. They handled the Phase1.5 changes perfectly...
