This was our first time here and it was delicious! Service was great, good wine and they have Cannoli's on the menu! I prefer Cannolli's without chocolate but they were still delicious and made with Ricotta not whip cream which is a huge plus. My only comment is the servings were too large. I ordered Lasagna and probably had enough leftovers for 2-3 additional meals. My partner had a huge portion too! Some may find that as a bonus!

Excellent cozy place and we will certainly return.

This is a charming, intimate restaurant. The hostess/owner, LeeAnne, is personable, pleasantly gregarious, and remembers your name too. The food is scrumptious, generously portioned, very competitive to any fine Italian restaurant, and such a surprise for a smallish restaurant in homey Snoqualmie. You feel like you must be in a little village in Italy!

Absolutely excellent! The staff are very friendly and accommodating. They pour a generous glass of wine and the meal servings will not make you leave the place hungry. The meals we had were very, very good. They have the BEST spumoni too! This was our second visit, and it definitely will not be our last.

We had high hopes for this restaurant. At any good Italian restaurant, the bread is an instrumental part of the meal. The bread here was cold and stale. We later heard from a friend that she hasn't returned for this exact reason. In addition, the Chicken Gorgonzola wasn't even a full breast--it was cut length-wise, and there was a lot of gristle on it. The prices were outrageous for what you received in return, which was nothing more than poor quality American Italian food.

We waited 30 min for a table with a reservation because it is a small restaurant and the couple would not leave. However the manager came over, gave us free wine and appetizer and apologized for everything. She was very friendly and it was not her fault. After learning it was my birthday she gave us a couple of free desserts. Everything was delicious and would go again. Just need to make sure I get dropped off while the husband parks since it’s first come first serve with reservations.

We were there with friends. It was our first visit, so we didn't really know what to expect. The ambiance was wonderful, as well as their hospitality. On top of that, the wait staff was quick and friendly. The food was served in a timely manner and was delicious. They even did a meat substitution in one of the pasta dishes. Dessert and coffee was wonderful, as well as the wine selection. We will return for sure.

IT WAS, IS, AND REMAINS A TREASURE. The owners are a family and it feels like your their guest in their home somewhere in Southern Italy. The food is excellent, not perfect just like home, delicious and thoughtfully prepared. Everyone bends over to make sure you get a great experience. Prices are moderate and for what is delivered a great value. They greet me with a hug and leave me with a kiss. It doesn't get any better than this. Nick Stellino take a lesson here.

photos: Spaghetti Frutti di Mare. Theirs is tomato based seafood with scallops, shrimp, muscles, clams, halibut and salmon in spicy Italian red sauce. Excellent

Crab Stuffed Ravioli With Shrimp. Delicious basil cream sauce very light with delicate crab and a touch of shrimp to blend. Outstanding and light.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and LOVED our total experience. We were greeted warmly like the last time we had been there was the week before, not two years ago. We were seated at the second-to-the-last table toward the back which made for easy conversation. Our waiter was great. He was able to help us with our decisions since everything sounded so good. Our dinners came in a good amount of time...and my, oh my - they are not shy on portions! My husband had the pork shank with polenta and I had the chicken special with sun-dried tomatoes and capers. They were both blow-our-minds delicious. The cheesy scalloped potatoes on my plate were the very best potatoes I have ever had! (Did I detect a bit of truffle there?) The only ding is that I wish their wine selection was a bit more well-rounded. It’s a little shy, particularly, on US Chardonnay. Just my opinion. We actually thought about extending our stay so we could go back another time, but it didn’t work out. Can’t wait for next time!

This was our first time here and we will be back. The service was warm and welcoming. We split each course. Appetizer: portabello with gorgonzola sauce, primi: cheese tortellini with a creamy tomato based sauce with bacon, zucchini and other good stuff, secondi: stuffed pork rolls with bacon etc. in a white wine sauce. Each of the courses came out freshly prepared and hot - such a rare thing any more. Each was flavorful and generous in portion. For dessert we had the bread pudding - absolutely fabulous. Along with a great bottle of wine this was a very satisfying experience and dinner.

The place is intimate, perhaps a bit overly so since the space is small and has perhaps a table or two more than the square footage calls for. The wait staff is professional yet warm and engaging. The portions are very large. Unfortunately the food simply isn't very good.

RESERVATION BUT NO TABLE:
We had a reservation at 6:00 pm on a Saturday for 4 people. When we arrived at 6:00 we were told our table was being cleared. We waited patiently in the small waiting area. 10 minutes later we were told the party at our table was leaving and our table would be ready shortly, then 5 minutes later we were told the party at our table was not leaving and it was suggested we walk down the street to a wine tasting place and they would call us when our table was ready, which would be soon. 30 minutes later at 6:45 we finally received a call that our table was ready. At this point we decided we had been lied to several times as they didn't have a table "being cleared" or "nearly ready", or "in just a few minutes" and we went to Sips in Issaquah and had a fantastic experience - great service and great food.

We really can't rate the food or value as we didn't get the opportunity to dine .

Lovely meal but we were seated next to a large party with 3 young children and two of them screamed thru out the meal with no parental correction....and I did expect the restaurant to ask the parents to calm their children. I have 5 grandchildren and they would be taken outside before they were allowed to disturb fellow diners.
