My husband and I visited Gianfranco's for the first time to celebrate our 39th anniversary. We arrived promptly at 4:30 for our reservations and were seated right away. When I first entered the restaurant I was slightly taken aback at how small it was, and there was a table for 6 right at the entrance, between the door and the hostess area. Our table was right next to the curtain that entered the kitchen. Our food was delivered in a fairly reasonable time. We had both ordered the Linguini Contadina and even though it was flavored and seasoned well it could have had more chicken, zuchinni and mushrooms, and the sauce could have been a little thicker. At one point while eating I could smell either prawns or shrimp being cooked in the kitchen. I detest both of those and it somewhat ruined my meal. Prices seemed a little steep with the exception of the appetizer. With that said I was pleasantly surprised that one of our desserts was complimentary due to our anniversary. This was very much appreciate. Overall I will not visit this restaurant again and will not recommend it to friends or family.

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!

This is a great family owned place. The owner/chef does a great job with the menu and the servers are very friendly and efficient. Save room for the tiramisu.

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.

Was a great restaurant with some wonderful comfort food. The waitress forgot to bring me some pepper and parmesan cheese, but it was also NYE so I know she was probably very busy. Will definitely come back again tho. Great food!
