We often go to one of the sister restaurants in Wallingford but this was our first time at the Cantinetta in Madison Valley. We sat outside in the patio tent in the parking lot. The ambience there wasn’t so bad and only got better after the sun went down. Menu was slightly different from Wallingford, but still the same high quality Italian style. Service was excellent and the staff were top notch.
This experience wasn’t our best at Bar Cantinetta. The server was polite but rushed and didn’t seem sincere at all. The tiny dining room was really loud because of a large group of 10-12 people. The cocktails and starter salad were delicious and pizza was good but crust was too thick. I wonder if they changed their crust recipe? Overall not great but we will try again.
Food was pretty average. No warm bread. Service was hit and miss
Excellent place to enjoy evening meal with family and friends.
Wonderful wine and pasta!
Great date at the restaurant! Staff was lovely and the food was delicious. Would 10/10 recommend the carbonara
It was a cozy and nice environment. Food and wine are great, reasonable price. Perfect date place.
Our waitress was superb.....what a delight. Not wild about the clams due to the amount of meat on them but the pasta and bread was great. Thanks
Excellent food! Burrata salad delicious, pasta is some of the best in Seattle.
But the music is way too loud. Whether its inside or in the parking lot dining the music is too loud and its hard to carry on a conversation.
Fried artichoke starter was the best we've had (or equal to one years ago in Rome).
Excellent halibut cooked in paper (though this is not a regular item on the menu)
Service was friendly and efficient. We sat outside which was set up well and very comfortable.
The appetizers were great. The main dishes were very good. The noise level was very high.
Fantastic as always. Personalized service and terrific food made for a great meal.
Such a special spot
We dined outside under a canopy. Our waiter was excellent! He gave us great recommendations for wine and and food
Amazing food! Such a cute spot.
Beautiful little table. Surrounded by nice plants, trees & strings of lights.
Great food, great service, and pleasant atmosphere. One of our favorites in Seattle.
The food was good but not great. Ravioli had very little flavor. Ensalada mista was large uncut pieces of lettuce with a tiny bit of dressing. Prosciutto and melon was very small amount. Prosciutto was delicious. Prosciutto pizza was tiny for the price. Salmon was overcooked and lacked flavor. Crab risotto was amazing. Lots of crab. Fantastic risotto. Really creamy. Wine was good. Bottle of barolo. Most are overpriced. Service was great! Very nice woman, helpful but hard to hear her as it was so loud in the restaurant.
Beautiful ambiance, great service, delicious food
The waitstaff I does an OUTSTANDING
job! Even when slammed they maintain
A few of the popular small plates could stand a “tune-up”, but other than that
Bar Cantinetta deserves its accolades!
Bar Cantinetta is a reliable staple when it comes to good food, ambience and service. There was a little confusion about my reservation as I had changed my request from outdoor to indoor seating but the OpenTable app did not share/send this change to the restaurant team. Nonetheless, we ate outside and it was fine. Their outdoor heaters worked perfect and kept us warm on a chilly evening.
The food is consistently delicious; limited menu but we were able to find some good vegetarian dishes. My favourite antipasti is the grilled broccolini - so delicious. Cocktails (Lady Madison) were on point and refreshing. And the funghi pizza was the perfect size for 2 people. The tiramisu tasted great but the bottom was a tad soppy, but it was still good.
Service-wise, it was exellent! Friendly and attentive (but too much so) service. We love their outdoor dining area -- it's quiet and lovely. We could have a conversation without raising our voices.
Food, service, ambience great, but the background music was too loud; server politely turned it down though. Definitely like going here.
The information on OpenTable is wrong. They DO NOT have Happy Hour. We made a reservation specifically during the Happy Hour, but we were told they don't have it. Food was good, but the cost performance was not really great.
Hi Alex, Apologies for the confusion. We offer happy hour on cocktails from 4-5 on Friday & Saturday. If you see something different please email us hello@cantinetta so that we can rectify. Thanks!
Fresh, local fare which changes regularly. Interesting combinations from an imaginative chef. Service and bar staff are 5 star, discreet but friendly and knowledgeable. Be sure to make a reservation even during off-peak. Ample neighborhood parking. A good value for the quality, portions and atmosphere.
Great choices of appetizers, pizzas, pastas and two mains. Halibut special over pea shoots and fennel was perfectly cooked and flavorful. Fried baby artichokes were just right - lightly seasoned and lemony. Well curated wine list, as well as thoughtfully composed cocktails. A neighborhood gem worth searching out.
I never write reviews, however this particular Bar Cantinetta experience is worthy to note. Some of the rudest staff I have ever encountered. The restaurant had blaring music playing, almost impossible to have a conversation with the person across from me, asked politely if they could turn it down (twice) to which they said sure and then did nothing. When the waiter finally came to take our order I gave him my credit card and asked for the check. Upon leaving the Manager asks what the problem was and I told him what happened to which he responded "maybe we aren't the right place for you! I mean seriously, WTF? I have been going to Cantinetta for years and have spent lots $$$$ there, so disappointing.
A bit pricy, but perfect for an indulgent occasion dinner. Everything was excellent, from cocktails to appetizers to pasta, and the location was quiet, elegant, and lovely.
We had a lovely outdoor dinner on a summery evening. They've set up the outdoor area quite nicely. It's not directly on the street, so it's pretty quiet. Rather than decide on one entree each, we opted for an array of appetizers, and they were all fantastic. The wait staff were attentive without being suffocating. It was so good to be back at Bar Cantinetta!
Super small portions so eat before you go. Started out nice but after we ordered our food we literally never saw our waiter again until we were ready to walk out. We flagged down the hostess to bring parmesan which should have been offered when our food was delivered but it did not show up until we were practically done eating. No one asked us if we needed a second round of drinks and for a restaurant that serves mostly pasta there should have been bread on the table. Extremely disappointing. Go somewhere else.
Bar Cantinetta is our absolute favorite neighborhood restaurant! Delicious menu and the best service, especially Hugo who we adore. A must if you’re in the mood for excellent Italian food!
Always a lovely meal at Cantinetta! We really enjoy the ambiance and intimacy of the dining room but we keep coming back for the amazing seasonal menu. Definitely order the tiramisu for dessert!
It was a wonderful birthday celebration. In addition to the food and the outdoor dining the wine was superb.
We had a wonderful outdoor dining experience- our first in 12 months! The staff and service were excellent - very helpful. The food is delicious- we tried the branzino and didn’t regret it!
Had a euphoric experience dining out again. The waiter was so patient with us. The food was incredible. The steak, deep fried artichokes, burrata and charcuterie tray all were top notch.
Intimate space with a classy outdoor space. Cocktails were well-balanced and delicious. Food was superb.
We love Cantinetta restaurants and really enjoy the neighborhood vibe at the Madison Valley bar. We will definitely come back again.
I made the mistake of ordering the steak - they claimed this to be a 10oz Waygu portion. It was the worst steak I've ever had. Not tender. Not tasty. Lots of gristle. Ugh
Love it every time!
Amazing service and excellent food!
