Way too expensive for the food quality served.

The quality of our meal was mediocre at best.

The lamb was over cooked, the chicken was over cooked - really tough and dry, the Italian sausage was EXTREMELY greasy, the calamari was not fresh..., tasted fishy, the pasta was over cooked, the extremely small lobster tail consisted of three bites, and we only received one prawn with each meal.

In our case, paying $150+ for an appetizer, two meals, and only water..., for myself and my wife, was extremely excessive for the quality/quantity of food served.

Oh, and the waitresses were beautiful, polite and good at their jobs..., but they were inappropriately dressed for what was supposed to be a quality family Italian restaurant.

Several of us felt they were dressed to work in a local bar, and our wives were shocked when they could actually see through their dresses...., it made them uncomfortable.

Some men might like this, but not when they go out for a nice meal with their girlfriend, wife, children and/or family.

Hands down, the best Northwesty Italian around...a fantastic experience. Yes, it's top dollar, but they make it worth it. We enjoyed the lobster and prawn linguini in saffron, and the Montalcino salad with appetizers...there is plenty to split, but you can go hungry...but classiest place to go, with that private feel you don't get at the overly commercial fancy places.

The only downside was the guitar player. The music played was a little loud and music choice didn’t fit the atmosphere at all.

This place is amazing. The food is outrageously good and the service is fantastic. Prices are more than reasonable, especially when you consider what you'd pay in downtown Seattle for the same meal. Will definitely be back to Montalcino Ristorante Italiano!

This restaurant continues to amaze us. An authentic Italian restaurant tucked into an Issaquah old downtown side street which is packed at 5:00 for dinner because everyone knows they're going to get a fabulous meal, great service, all in an intimate setting. It's the kind of place you continue to talk about the next several days...it's that good.

We went during Restaurant Week and will definitely be returning to try the normal menu. Two of our party ordered the calamari in saffron sauce for their appetizers--they both loved it. I had the cheese/meats plate and it was generous and beautifully served. The gnocchi with gran parma sauce was quickly devoured and the paparadelle with roasted red pepper cream sauce was over-the-top good. We had one of each of the three desserts; they were all delicious. Service was impeccable and the little extras, such as fresh baked bread drizzled with balsamic vinegar and the house-made cheese with truffles made it a special evening.

Authentic, Italian cuisine, properly prepared with fresh, fresh ingredients. The leftovers still tasted great the next day. Service was attentive and accommodating. Wine pairing advice was spot-on. The moderate sized room kept the volume low enough to have good conversation with dinner. Others dining appeared to be a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. The menu is broad and ambitious - so many offerings - it's hard to believe they are all as well prepared as our dinners were. We will be back to try more entrees from the menu.

Magnificent! If you go anywhere else to eat when you are in or around Issaquah you’ve made a mistake. This is a great find for an incredible meal. Try the short rib stuffed raviolis....you won’t be disappointed! I’ll be back for sure.

Dined at Montalcino as part of Seattle Restaurant week. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared--Italian comfort food. Not for fitness buffs. The housemade truffle cheese was a delightful surprise. The pesto sauce is the best we've ever had. Our server was cheerful and thoughtful. A great night!
