All in all, this is a sweet spot in Madison valley. The food was all excellent… with one minor exception which is really personal taste. The bread service came with white truffle butter/cheese snd I’m not a fan of truffles. They’re very strong! BUT, all the apps and mains were delish! Salad of corn, tomatoes, cucumber and dill - totally refreshing. Fried artichoke hearts - nice. The pheasant on polenta with figs was absolutely wonderful. Our server was attentive, knew the menu and wines, and was extremely pleasant. Small inside and has a great outdoor patio.

The food was extremely good. Was a little surprised at how sparse the menu was but I imagine that allows them to frequently change it.

Great local spot. We enjoyed the outdoor dining- not fancy but very nice. Food was excellent and well priced as was the wine. Service was very good also.

Wasn’t able to enjoy it because of the vaccine policy that wasn’t told to us ahead of time while booking this reservation. The policy wasn’t anywhere on the website or Open Table website so we showed up to be turned away because one of us only has one shot, even though it’s outdoor seating. Very disappointing.

Mains (risotto, pappardelle, and gnocchi) were amazing. Gem lettuce salad and fried artichokes were okay (salad seemed a little sparse on the plate and artichokes were kind of cold). It's lovely to have an outside option but its a different (and less pleasant) feel to be looking at a mini mart parking lot. The service was good if a little slow. It's a great place. I look forward to post-COVID times.

Another great experience with great ambiance, staff, and food. Our appetizers were unique and perfectly put together. Pasta was delicate and so tasteless as was our main. The waiters were attentive and made us feel very comfortable. Overall, there is a reason we keep coming back. They care.

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.

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 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.
