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!

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!

Went to SRW, the pasta was just average for me, and I got sick a couple hours after the meal. Will not be returning.

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!

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.

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

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.

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!

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!

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.

So great to dine out again, and a real treat to be welcomed back to this lovely dining experience. The food was beautifully prepared... we enjoyed the pork belly appetizer as well as the fried artichokes which were delightfully crispy yet light and refreshing. My Cacio e Peppe was flavorful and seasoned so well. As we were enjoying ourselves so much, we even shared the coconut flan dessert — sublime. Can’t wait to return.

We were seated 35 mins late for a reservation that was already pushed by the restaurant from 6:30 to 8 in order to sit outside. So our 35 min wait was on the sidewalk outside in 40 degree weather. Food was great but arguably not worth it by that point.
