It was great outside! Inside felt really hot but I just popped in to use the loo so maybe it wasn’t that bad. ALMOST felt like I was back in Italy.

I was impressed by the bistro-style ambience and the quality of the food. There is a nice outdoor seating area, but the wait was too long, so we sat inside. Our servers were attentive and the food and drinks came out quickly. I would like to return to try other items on the menu, as the quality and the presentation were lovely. My friend and I also appreciated the decent-sized wine pours. Very good experience!

A charming, cute Italian restaurant tucked away in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood. All the servers were busting their a** to accommodate the many patrons on this particular night. It was extremely busy, but as soon as our server came to our table she was patient and took her time to listen and respond to our questions about the menu. We had to wait at the bar for our table (We had a 7:00 reservation and didn't get seated until 7:45...downside) but we were able to watch the bartended on FIRE handling on the drink orders solo! Bravo! We didn't love how long it took from start to finish, but everyone at the restaurant was doing their damn best to accommodate everyone, especially when they were most likely understaffed like many restaurants right now. Definitely will be back! Grazie Mille!

We had a lovely dinner - Negronis were nicely made; antipasti were baby artichoke friti and burrata w peaches; a manzanilla salad next; primi of tagliatelle w asparagus and a fresh egg yolk and pici pomodoro. No secondi as we were full. Great service from Katie, and a lovely evening overall.

Food was fresh and attractively presented. Waitstaff were awesome.
But please cook pasta properly… al dente is only firm in the middle, not throughout.

No air conditioning! It was so hot in the restaurant that it was hard to enjoy your meal. When you pay $250 for a dinner out, one should expect at least a fan. I think the restaurant should mention it’s not air conditioned when the reservation was made.

Cantinetta is such a hidden gem. A secret for the locals and for the tourists that discover it, a can’t miss. Food is always incredible. The service is great, kitchen is fast. We went at 7:30 on a Tuesday and you’d think it was a Friday. Full house, but service was fast and the orders came out as if we were the only ones there.

It was very warm inside and the service was a little slow as the waiter seemed to know a few people and seemed to fixate on the people he knew.

made a last minute reservation on OpenTable, we were excited by the multiple five star reviews. We ate outside at one of the sidewalk tables, a very nice setting. The service was very good but the food was just so-so. The focaccia was bland, the large potato dumplings was uninspired and the food was luke warm and we sent it back to be reheated.

Service was a little slow to start when taking our order, but it was good afterwards. They were busy and were able to accommodate our party of 5 when we were initially a party of 4, so that was excellent. Food was good, but we’ve definitely had better , and portions were on smaller side too.

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.

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.
