Food good but needs to increase a notch to differentiate from other Italian restaurants in the area
Lovely in every way. Wonderful food, warm and attentive service and ambiance that makes me want to come back very often.
We loved the seasonal summer menu. We usually visit in fall and winter so these flavors were new to us and delicious. Everything we ate was excellent and the service was attentive, but not obtrusive. Only quibble was that the noise level was very high and the lowering sun avoided all attempts to shade it.
We have been in Mexico for two years so anticipated many changes but the essential Cantinetta remains, As was true in the past, every dish is impeccable. The butter lettuce salad with gorgonzola dolce was decadent. The clams pungent, the nectar soupworthy, The salmon with pea vines rendered perfectly. Sadly, our favorite bartender, Todd, has moved on, but Ryan, our favorite waitperson was there and remembered us. Truly a neighborhood gem.
Booked this place after searching for “Romantic restaurants in seattle” since i had proposed.
We were sat at a very wobbly table in the corner. We didn’t get our drink order taken until we had been at the table for 25 minutes. When i gave my drink order i requested a soda but asked if i could have a glass of champagne delivered once the food arrived.
We didn’t see her again until she came with the check. Other staff members brought us out food and nobody ever checked on our drinks. Mine was gone before i got my food (water was refilled) and my fiancé’s drink had bugs fly into it since the door was open
The food was good but we’ve certainly had better.
Service didn’t match the price and brought down the expirience.
Good food and good service!
Great atmosphere, very much European cafe style restaurant. Service was friendly and fast. We arrived around 830 when it was pretty busy (our table was the only one free) and it was pretty loud. But cleared up within 20 minutes and then it was fantastic. It’s a small space so if you want something intimate pick an off time. Food was good. Some things were incredible, some decent. Definitely get the Torta di Bosco - amazing. Overall a really nice experience and would go again.
The food, service and ambiance was beyond our expectations. They made a special occasion even more special.
I’ve never had a bad experience here. The food is consistently excellent and the service is great.
Awesome service, delicious food! Had a great selection of wine.
Delicious meal, attentive service. Indoors it’s loud, warm and smells like cooking. Clothes had food smells when we left.
Fantastic dinner and serve!! Thank you for a great evening.
Food is always excellent at Cantinetta! Love the fried artichokes!!
Food was excellent. Service was friendly and professional. Beautiful space.
The open table reservation did not sync up with the restaurants program. Luckily they were able to seat us.
The food and the service was excellent! Everything was super fresh and so tasty.
Wonderful food and outstanding staff. Thanks for a great dinner!
Fabulous evening! Enjoyable night out that has been missing for so long. A little noisy, could use some sound absorbing. Curtains perhaps?
The food and the service is awesome. Food preparation is so delicious so fine and we'll balanced!!!
Unfortunately the food was average, lacking in seasoning, and the waiter was uninterested. Expensive for the quality of the food.
Great little spot for a night out. Totally cute interior with rustic touches. Felt a lot like being in Italy. The food was served quickly and everything was very good. Pasta was fresh and the butter lettuce salad was a great combination of flavors.
Great food in a cute neighborhood. Definitely enjoyed my meal and will be back.
Papardelle, panzanella, and the melon were our favorite dishes!
Great service and very tasty dishes. The pasta dish I ordered, Pici was amazing. Amy who waited on us was very patient and provided excellent service. Thank you! Amy and thanks!! to all the staff up front and in the kitchen for bracing the 100+ deg temp and providing an amazing meal and service.
No air conditioning on a hot day
The food and service were outstanding. The only downside was when I sat back against the bench seating on the wall and had a portion of my hair catch fire due to the placement of a votive candle directly behind the head area.
It wasn’t until some neighboring diners and I smelled the burning hair when we realized what had happened.
The server said sorry and removed the votive with a chunk of my hair still smoking inside the glass container.
Hopefully the candle placement will be more thoughtful in the future.
Would also highly recommend some ceiling fans to circulate air inside the restaurant as it was quite warm - all kidding aside.
Fantastic food and service!
My cocktail, greyhound was delicious!
It was very warm in the restaurant .
The service was perfect-- attentive but not too much. We appreciated the constant water fill-ups as we are a thirsty bunch. The ambiance was perfect-- warm, airy, and inviting. The food was excellent!!! We have missed frequenting this neighborhood eatery since the closure due to the pandemic. We live about 5 blocks away and will certainly be back often now that we feel safer eating out again. Keep up the quality service and food, plus the friendly and welcoming atmosphere!
Our first time visit. Wonderful food and service. Great old wooden floors. We'll be back.
Delicious halibut; steak you could land a plane on; pork belly! My kids took me out for dad’s day and Cantinetta was a treat. Busy place with a cool Wallingford vibe. Food quality and presentation were great. My wife was a little disappointed with # of selections for entrees but did not bother me. Assumed quality over quantity and the dishes proved my point. Son who is a gnocchi lover thought that Cantinetta’s were some of the best ever.
The Pici and the Gnocchi are really good. They have a nice waiting area outside where you can order drinks.
Superb Italian cuisine served to perfection in a charming, local haunt. Fresh focaccia, impressive bar mixologist, and very attractive decor. Loved the pork belly appetizer and carbonara. Make reservations or be sad.
Very bad acoustics. Can hardly hear your table partners. Service slow. Carrots for starters very under cooked and only a touch above raw. Prosciouto dish was delicious. Was told no veal in a certain dish, as allergic to veal and it did indeed have veal. I was sick. I think they think since veal is beef that it was okay to say no veal and only beef and pork.
I love Cantinetta, food snd service is fabulous. Noise level is awful and takes away from the fun and enjoyment, it a
Seems to be worse each time i go.
We've been happy customers since the beginning, and we're really happy to go there again, first indoor dining since what seemed like forever, yay! The fried baby artichokes were incredible.
Every item on the menu is interesting - all were delicious, well prepared, well presented. The servers were kind and engaging. Great meal!
Everything was excellent, ambience was wonderful!
The food was awesome and I love the ambiance - however, the music was loud and people were forced to talk over it which made it even louder. Because they were so busy, we felt rushed since the waiters and waitresses were running around like crazy, refilling waters and picking up used dishes constantly. So inadvertently it made us feel like we had to rush thru our meal, but it wasn’t a deal breaker - we still took our time. We will go back again. Parking is hard to find so arrive early.
Great little hidden gem! I love he location, in that it’s in a nice quiet neighborhood, making it more of a “locals” spot. The service was great, and the food was fantastic!!
Perfect for date night! ✨
