    the food is very good. the service is friendly. excellent cocktails and wines by the glass. it is a very expensive restaurant. it used to be moderate to expensive. it used to be a neighborhood restaurant that you could go to 2-4 times/month. now, unfortunately, its a special occasion.

    Appetizers; artichokes and clams are great. Pastas were well prepared but could benefit from a few vegetables.

    Waiters rushed us to order, wanted to get us in and out S quickly as possible Table chairs at slant, view and ambience very poor - makeshift outdoor seating not anything like what webpage conveys Very limited menu and overpriced All they have for entrees are pasta dishes!!

    I have dinner here regularly when in Seattle! Often with friends. Due to its size and usually full, the menu is limited to the usuals. But! They do change over the seasons! Appetizer, pizzas, pastas. PreCOVID they had specials sometimes, especially Friday-Sunday. So now!!! They have a Tagliarini with cherry tomato and chilies that is great! Always worth the trip!!

    a consistent star among the crowd of italian restaurants. hand made pastas, unique, but not bizarre or pretentious appetizers and delicious desserts. and the main waiter, connor is exceptional and thoughtful.

    My friend dines here regularly, but this was my first visit. The service was odd/slow, and it took forever for our pizzas to come after our appetizers. The server apologized that there was a new cook in the kitchen. My friend said service is usually better.

    Service that makes you instantly feel like a neighborhood regular. A real treat to be treated this well. Our burratta appetizer was delicious, with perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes and just the right amount of balsamic and salt. The carbonara was very tasty, but just a touch too salty. If you're in the Madison Valley for dinner, Bar Cantinetta is a cannot-lose proposition.

    First meal back after 10 weeks in Geneva, part in Reykjavík. Both gray food destinations. Seattle is also a great place for food. And Bar Cantinetta lived up to expectations. The usual great service and excellent food. Lived the presentation on the gazpacho (chopped vegetables) and the Tagliarini with tomato and chili was my taste with the extra chili.

    Food took forever to come out, between each course (3) we had to wait at least 15 minutes. We sat with empty cocktails for 20 minutes before we were asked if we wanted another drink. We ordered a bottle of wine, it took 15 minutes for clean wine glasses to be found by the waiter. The food was delicious, but the whole experience was terrible.

    I brought my mom here for an early evening dinner. They were able to accommodate us under their canopied outdoor seating, which was quieter than indoors and nice in the summer weather. We had the Fontina Fonduta (white truffle butter, baguette), Watermelon (ricotta salata, spicy honey, basil), Butter Lettuce (orange, pistachio, champagne vinaigrette), Tagliatelle (foraged mushrooms, garlic, summer truffle), and the tiramisu. Everything was absolutely delicious! The Cure (Mezcal) cocktail was also very well done. Brandon was a wonderful server! The restaurant was out of quite a few of their menu items when we went (at 5:45), but we had looked at the menu ahead of time and were able to get everything we planned for. I will absolutely take others there in the future and would recommend to others. I noticed some reviews said the bill was pricey, but this is to be expected from a restaurant with high quality items and we did not find it unreasonable for the experience, service, or food.

    Noise from road construction was terribly loud. We started with the artichoke hearts, they were a little burnt. We ordered the Rigatoni, it was tasteless, chewy, amateur presentation, we sent it back. We ordered the Tagliatelle pasta. It was a little better, but 1 note, tasteless after a few bites. Pasta was extremely under done. Pretty disappointing for $26.00! Service was friendly, professional.

    Hugo manages the front of the house fantastically. We felt very taken care of by the whole team. It was busy but I saw every table getting what seemed like fantastic personalized service with a smile. The food was really good. The risotto was fantastic! It was my first visit and it was such a cozy welcoming cheerful place. We will definitely come again.

    My favorite Italian restaurant, both food and service were outstanding. Menu changes so there's always something new to try! There were 4 adults and a 4 year old in our group and they made all of us feel special, especially my granddaughter, nice touch. Go and enjoy, we all did😎

    Excellent food and cocktails. Cocktails $17. A bit pricey. One of the waiters was very standoffish and curt when offering us a table and firs several interactions. To his credit he ended up being pleasant. I would go back
