Cozy restaurant with excellent food and service.
I don’t post every time I’m here! If you follow me, you know I’m here at least once a week when I am in Seattle! It is certainly because the food is good! The service is excellent! Also if you follow me you know I go to many excellent restaurants in Europe. Bar Cantinetta is one in Seattle that is very close to those restaurants in Europe! If you don’t know, that is very high praise! This evening was a very basic chicory Caesar salad and pappardelle alla Bolognese (I like dove do added red chili flakes: most probably wouldn’t want!)
if you follow me, you see I’m here regularly! If it weren’t good, I’d be gone! I can cook, and I support my good locals. So! Certainly Daniel׳s is pricey! And haven’t brought back the bar menu yet, but that’s COVID-19! And you can get the sandwiches at the bar! I’m going to travel again, so you will miss me here. I just want to be sure you know it’s because I’m not I. Seattle
Lucky to have this special restaurant around the corner. Very accommodating of vegetarian and zero-proof preferences, delicious options for all courses.
the service is incredible, very warm and friendly. they remember you, even your drink. the room is a very warm, comforting room, even romantic. the food is good, stick to the pastas, you can't go wrong. brief but good wines.
Always a great experience. Cocktail program is on point.
Absolutely amazing! The staff were so great and we had a wonderful time. This is going to be our new favorite spot and we can’t wait to come back for more. It’s such a cozy ambiance in the outdoor seating, wonderful spot for a romantic date night.
The drinks are amazing. My husband and I were so impressed, the coffee one made us feel like we were in an Italian cafe sipping espresso. The bartender also made a delicious warm cider cocktail for me that was so soothing and tasty.
When I reserved with OpenTable, I specified that I DID NOT want to sit outside, and this was for an anniversary. Upon arriving, they sat us outside. I questioned it, yet, we agreed it was likely warm enough. No mention of our anniversary was made, so we blew that off as well, not wanting to be negative on a special day. The food was great, as well as our wait person/server, yet, we froze, and it wasn’t comfortable. Moving forward, I’ll contact restaurants directly vs. using OpenTable, as our data likely isn’t being communicated, or, the restaurant just didn’t have room inside for us, and did the best they could.
Great service! Miles, our waiter, was very accommodating.
We celebrated a lovely anniversary at Bar Cantinetta and could not have been happier with the experience. Intimate setting, amazing service, and great cocktails. We had the mussels and gnocchi and WOW, delicious! I can’t remember ever having better gnocchi. Highly recommend for any special occasion or casual date night. Thanks to the staff there for such a special night!
great pasta, disappointing steak and ceasar salad. Steak was flavorless, ceasar was a chopped salad, in other words, bar food but at a premium price.
Amazing food and wine and the outside atmosphere with the faux fur padded chairs and multiple fire places was wonderful and warm. While the food was very good the main course did take a long time to make it to the table. Otherwise might have been closer to 5 stars.
Service was quick and very good! Drinks and wine were excellent! Food was very, very good! Love the ambiance … very romantic. A nice little hideaway!
Great food and service. Love the cozy small vibe.
My routine is 1-2 dinners here a week. The food and service is excellent. Certainly Italian inspired. And very well preparedl! It is tiny, I walk here for my daily routine exercise! Too!! So, a short but varied menu, Hugo, their main bartender is great and he trains well!
It’s a great place for any occasion!
Loved the outdoor dining area, but as a big fan of the original Cantinetta, the food here just was not as scrumptious.
I am a regular here. Tonight however was a first get together with friends since COVID-19. All long vaccinated. And all was tasty and great service
This is my favorite restaurant in Seattle. The food is excellent, and the experience is just as good. Every time I leave I ask myself why I'm not here more often. Hugo makes us feel like family every time we walk in.
WE FOUND THE RESTAURANT COLD TEMPERATURE WISE AND ASKED IF THE DOOR/WINDOWS COULD BE CLOSED. THEY SAID THEY NEEDED TO BE OPEN FOR VENTILATION DUE TO COVID. MAYBE, A BETTER HVAC SYSTEM WOULD DO THE TRICK. ANYWAY WE DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY. WHEN WE SAT DOWN THE MUSIC WAS QUITE LOUD AND WE WERE UNCOMFORTABLE STAYING, SO WE LEFT. MAYBE WE'LL RETURN IN THE SPRING OR WHEN THEY GET AN IMPROVED HVAC SYSTEM.
One of our favorite places to dine. They have adapted to our challenging world and have kept their first class service, exceptional food, while providing a very safe environment for their customers.
The pasta was amazing but the carbonara has onions and garlic. This is not a carbonara. Everything else was really good!
Love that vaccination is required. Much of the food was great. We weren’t crazy about the risotto. Very friendly server and door person. Excellent service
was excellent food, great staff, and super sweet vibe in the restaurant. The food was delicious and just about the right amount.
Great Italian spot, tasty food and drinks.
Such an amazing time. Thank you to the staff and Bennet!!!!
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.
Very nice...You have to show proof of vaccination..not a big issue
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.
We had a lovely dinner for two. Food and service was excellent, we will be back!
Went for our Anniversary. The food was so good and the service was incredible. We had so much fun!
Another great dinner at Bar Cantinetta! This is my favorite neighborhood go-to and it is always top notch!
Always an amazing time here! Great ambiance, drinks, and food.
As a highlight, we enjoyed fried baby artichokes and a lovely salad of fresh sweet corn and tomatoes. The wait staff at this restaurant is excellent!
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.
One of our favorite places to dine at. Always a great experience
Staff was lovely, dinner delicious, can’t wait to go back!
Appreciate this a vaccinated only restaurant.
Great food, love the vibe here. Courtney was amazing!!
