We always have a great time when we dine here. Good is excellent and service is on point. Price is pretty steep and because it’s a small restaurant, it’s hard to get a reservation on weekends if you don’t plan ahead. Definitely worth visiting.

Montalcino was an absolutely awesome find. We definitely will return. This Ristoranto is a labor of love. It's been a long time since I've been to a place that has such a warm, inviting atmosphere. It felt like I was back in Europe at a small cafe. Everyone at our table raved about what they had ordered. It definitely deserves every one of the 5 stars.

Celebrated my wife's birthday with two other couples. Our table was ready right on time, but a more quiet / romantic options was opening up. He asked if we would like to wait a couple of extra minutes while it was prepared - brought us complimentary proseco while we waited. Food was outstanding. Absolutely outdid them selves. Lobster Ravioli was epics. Thanks you for the amazing experience.

Dining at Montalcino is an all-around exceptional experience. The food is authentic Italian and the best we’ve had since returning from Italy! The owners/staff are attentive, knowledgeable and helpful with wine and food selections. The guitar and Italian singing are the bow on the present.

Appreciate the special attention for our anniversary. I was in the mood for a meaty red sauce but unfortnately ordered the wrong entree (Red sauce w pork) but husband ordered gnocchi and it was fine.
Tiramisu was outstanding!

I am happy to discover this exceptional restaurant in Issaquah and look forward to going again the next time I’m there. The food was amazing. It offers an extensive list of pasta with many types of sauces along with a variety of meat and seafood options. We had the pasta with pesto and mushroom sauce, halibut, beef with an amazing sauce, a light version of tiramisu, and lemon sorbet—all memorable. The service is friendly and professional. The decor is charming and the tables well spaced. We were able to get a same-day reservation for 5pm, but recommend booking early as the restaurant is small (but mighty).

Great Ambiance to most restaurants in the area. Service was great. Food was good, not amazing taste but I am rating that from a perspective of many travels in europe and Italy. Pretty expensive for taste but was nice to have local feel.

Sunday night, quiet and great room. This time however, the service slow which I believe also resulted in our food not being hot. Great dishes, but not when they are sitting waiting to be delivered. Did not recognize the server from our previous very good service, so we will certainly return for another opportunity to get it right.

Montalcino’s is arguably the best Italian restaurant in the Northwest. Most of the food is imported from Italy and is the restaurant is owned and operated by a family from Italy. Truly a different experience from other restaurants in the region. You will not be disappointed.
