    We enjoyed a flawless dinner last night at the sweet Bar Cantinetta, Madison Valley. We were a party of 6, I think perhaps we consumed most of the menu (!!) and everything was perfect about our meal and the service. We’ve dined here many times and it’s been consistently great. We’re longtime locals and this is one of our top 5 in town. Thank you, Bar Cantinetta.

    We had a wonderful experience at Bar Cantinetta! Came for a birthday dinner and would definitely go back again. Food is delicious and the service was outstanding. Loved the ambiance of the restaurant - dim lighting, cozy, and elegant. Great place for a date night, special occasion, or just to get out!

    Incredibly delicious food in a cozy, elegant spot. Perfect dinner on a blustery Seattle night. It's a small and in demand place (for good reason) and they ask that you respect the time you're allotted so the next group can enjoy their time. The staff is wonderful and take great care in pacing your meal so that you finish on time without feeling rushed. Can't wait to go back.

    Really lovely! the service team was warm, well informed, and helpful! The space the team and the food had the right balance of high end destination and familiar neighborhood nook. I’m not the kind of diner that goes in search of the BEST pasta, but i can say that Bar Cantinetta’s was noticeably heads and shoulders above many that i’ve experienced in seattle. In particular i will say that the Tagliatelle was toothsome to perfection! We were celebrating a birthday (4 of us), but this is up there on the list of next date spots for me and my partner. i don’t usually take the time to write a review, but this was worth the mention. we’ll be back. Soon!

    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!!

    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.
