Ryan and the waitstaff were fantastic! The food was top notch, as were the drinks. Shoutout to the chef for the Gnocchi, the smokey sear on it was the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend this restaurant for delicious food, drinks, and ambiance!
Great place for a fun little date night in the city. Food and ambience was great, but even better service!
It’s an Italian flavor journey for foodies. Very cool spot and feels intimate.
Keep it up Cantinetta! What a lovely place! Be back for more!
The original Cantinetta is our favorite place in Seattle. We have such a great experience every time and we haven’t had a dish we haven’t loved. The food is always fresh and delicious and the atmosphere is that chic, understated elegance that is becoming harder and harder to find. If you know of Il Buco in New York (also a favorite), this is the Pacific Northwest’s version. It’s the Italian restaurant done perfectly. The waitstaff are always extremely accommodating and even saved our special spot for us as I was surprising my boyfriend for his Birthday. Will be back again and again. Thank you, once again, for an amazing night!
Our Mother's Day dinner was excellent. We had many items on the menu and shared all of them!! We sat outside and it was wonderful on a beautiful day with family.
I would recommend Cantinetta to everyone.
Enjoy.....p.s. The cocktails are great as well.
Just in case anyone is concerned if Cantinetta is as good as it was pre-Covid.....it’s as good for sure! We celebrated Mother’s Day plus being fully vaccinated and had a great dinner!
I have been going to Cantinetta for years now. The food, service and Ambience has always been outstanding. However I rated it lower this time around due to several things. It was crowded inside for dining during Covid. I was uncomfortable at how many people were inside. Not only that but it was so busy, the waitress really couldn't give us proper attention. And the few times I have been there, there has been no music or I barely noticed it. Was fine that way. The music on Saturday night was loud and WAY to raucous and upsetting. I felt like I was in a pick up bar for 20 year olds. Not great for fine dining.
The food was outstanding though and I had a good time with my girls.
Overall it’s a nice corner to have dinner. Service is excellent. There are nice people around.
Burrata is a must have. The restaurant has its own creativity in this common Italian appetizer. Burrata paired with the sauerkraut very well!
We ordered two pasta - Gnocchi and Risotto. Overall it’s good but not many sides and no meat at all. I would suggest to add more veggies, mushrooms or some meat which will make them much better!
Love here go here often but last time the food was just too salty. Also even though it was a small crowd, music very loud, unpleasant. Still love the place though
My favorite neighborhood spot. Cozy and local, but also destination worthy food. Great service.
Went to SRW, the pasta was just average for me, and I got sick a couple hours after the meal. Will not be returning.
Excellent attention throughout it our visit; friendly staff; gorgeous plating, delicious food.
Best restaurant I’ve been to in a looooong time. Everything was delicious. The clams were over-the-top exquisite.
So nice to be back at one of our favorite local spots and one of the top places for real authentic Italian cuisine in Seattle. It was very busy and buzzy on a Saturday night and as always the staff went out of their way to make us feel well looked after and special. Fried baby artichokes and the cacio e pepi peci were the highlights of the meal this time around, as always we ordered WAY too much food, but leftovers are always fantastic!
Incredible food, incredible space
The wait staff were all great. Good vibe in the restaurant. Pleasant space as well. The food was just good, not great. $200 for dinner for two women seemed like a lot for food that was good, not great, and very little alcohol. Don't get the fried baby artichokes. I expected something along the lines of fried squash blossoms. Instead, they have this incredibly hard shell. To be fair, our waitress offered to replace the dish with something else when she saw we weren't eating them, but I didn't want to make a fuss.
If they reinstated a happy hour, I would definitely go back. Otherwise, probably not. If I'm going to spend that much I want outstanding food.
Lovely spot in a quiet neighborhood. Went there for the Seattle Restaurant week and had a great meal for a great deal. Would highly recommend.
The coconut Panna Cotta and Tiramisu were delicious!
Stopped in for SRW. Excellent food, great service. Will definitely be back again.
The food was excellent but it was a very limited selection. Our waiter seemed distracted. At one time I was asking a question and he completely looked away at another table so I needed to stop till he turned his attention back to us
Best place in Seattle.
Outdoor seating is very nice. After watching the sunset their table side fires will keep you warm. As will the great cocktails and food.
One of my very favorite restaurants in Seattle. Well prepared, top notch, but in a humble and understated way. Outdoor seating is comfortable and safely spaced apart, waitstaff is attentive not hovering. Always leave there feeling very happy and satisfied.
So happy you are open!!! Worth the wait. Cantinetta Wallingford is our fav!!!! Can’t wait to return ♥️💚🤍
Loved the service, food could have been better and some of them were definitely over priced. Loved the ambience but the outdoor fire should have a protective glass to avoid any contact(safety hazard)
We love everything about Cantinetta— the exceptional food (as good or better than dishes we’ve had in Tuscany), the kind, attentive servers that remember things we like from week to week, and the cozy, candlelit, atmosphere where we often run into friends from the neighborhood. We missed Cantinetta so much and have returned for a date night each week since they reopened!
All dishes we tried were very good but most notable were the fried artichokes, burrata, and risotto.
Great as always. I've been going there since they opened in 2008...always a delight!
Best people food and place!!! Love this neighborhood gem
Very nice restaurant but we wish the menu had had better options and while the desserts were amazing the rest of everything was pretty good but not amazing.pricey....
Because of COVID, this was our first meal out at a restaurant in over a year, and we are so glad we chose Cantinetta! We had an absolutely delicious dinner here, during Seattle Restaurant Week, and for very good value. We were seated outside, in a covered area next to a fire pit, and were cozy, warm and happy through the entire meal. Our server was very friendly and helpful, making excellent wine suggestions and answering questions about the menu. We will be back!
Wonderful every time! Food, cocktails, service and ambiance -- A+
We had a delightful dinner at Cantinetta! We started with cocktails and an appetizer that were absolutely perfect! We then had Carbonara and Cacio e Pepe like Mama used to make, but better. The Halibut was cooked to perfection! The entire staff was the right combination of friendly and professional! I can't wait to go back!
Everything was wonderful. The food and drinks were delicious. It was out first time out at a restaurant this year and we both felt very safe even during a busier time of day. The tables were very spaced out and they had opened windows as well. Definitely had covid precautions in place. There Is outdoor seating as well with heaters and cozy seat covers.
Out favorite neighborhood restaurant! Have eaten here numerous times over the years and it’s always consistent and creative!
Love this restaurant and the service. We usually try and sit outside and it's peaceful and comfortable. You can always count on a great meal that's diverse and creative. It's a neighborhood treasure.
We were so excited to be able to go back to Cantinetta after almost a year. The food was fantastic the service was excellent. I am glad they are back open. We will be back soon
Good to be reopened! Always the best Italian menu. Hope the bar can open by summer.
The ambience was very nice and all our servers very polite. The food wasn't something special to be honest. I ordered the tagliatelle bolognese which was very average. The tiramisu though was delicious.
