Montalcino Ristorante Italiano Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding food. We had their lobster ravioli w/2 lobster tails. Absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The management and service staff is very personable, highly professional and very attentive. This is a small romantic hideaway just off of Front Street on Alder. This is our all time favorite Italian restaurant.
The menu is interesting. The food was spectacular. The service is excellent.
We were early diners and were told that we had our table for 90 minutes. I didn't
like this as we like to linger over a glass of wine or coffee. However, I understand as the space is small and they need more sittings. Next time, I will book later and stay until closing!!!!
Highly recommend this place and will go back again!!!
The clear winner for this restaurant is the superb preparation of modern Italian cuisine. The service was friendly and prompt. It is rather a small place just off of Front Street in Issaquah. They managed to squeeze in a lot of tables comfortably into a small space. We were four people for dinner and everyone raved about their dinner. Really enjoyed their selection of by the glass Italian wines. It was definitely pricey but well worth the expense! We will definitely go again. We were also in a hurry to make a curtain and they were very accommodating.
Seriously one of the best meals I have had. We wandered in just looking for Italian in the area, and found a cozy place with live music. The food was wonderful from salad to dessert, and large portions. The short rib ravioli special was especially amazing. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Came back with family, and they were impressed even after we had talked it up.
The food is amazing! The waitress was fine but all business and rushed us from the start to order our appetizer, wine and food. My only complaint is the way they schedule diners. We were there on Feb 2 a family of 6. We were aware of the time restraint on their reservations so I am not exactly complaining but we will re think going there with family and friends because we were rushed. We would have love to have desert , more wine and possible after dinner drinks . We realize that when you are having a wonderful meal and great conversation 1hour and 45 minutes just isn't enough time. It is really a shame because we would have continued to spend money in the restaurant. I had barely finished eating when they started collecting wine glasses.
Montalcino never fails to exceed expectation. Already a favorite for the truffle ravioli and the magnificent meatballs, tonight we went for the specials and were blown away. The short rib ravioli was a triumph: incredible flavor, depth and richness. The seafood pasta was also phenomenal, the perfect balance between delicate seafood and hearty pasta. It's always best to go with their own wine - the Sangiovese is our favorite.
Thx to Montalcino for decanting an Amarone for me before I arrived. Bruschetta is probably the best I’ve ever had. Quiet elegance was perfect for a business meal. My client raved about the lamb shank and said it was the meal he had ever had in a restaurant.
Can’t over describe this must-try restaurant.
Always delicious! Their Salumi e Formaggi is a great starter. The Lobster ravioli may be the best dish on the menu! I’ve yet to try them all but that one wins no matter what everyone else orders. Their family wines are very good. Truffle cheese, mmmmm. Chocolate Bomba and a glass of port to finish. Wear stretchy pants.
Great family holiday meal. There were 4 adults and two children. We all ordered the seafood pasta with lobster tail, including splitting one full order for the kids. It was delicious, as usual, earning raves from our son, daughter in law and our two grandkids who were first time diners there.
We were rushed by server from the moment we entered. They have excellent food but certainly would not qualify as a fine dining experience due to their concern with simply turning tables. Our party was in and out within 1 hour and 10 minutes. We will not return.
