Italian
Ristorante Italianissimo has been the bastion of Italian fare in Woodinville, WA since the mid 1990”s. In March of 2015, the baton was passed on to the family that has helped make Italianissimo the success that it has become. Still family owned and operated, the restaurant has made a seamless transition from one family to another.The Italian philosophy of using fresh, local ingredients, prepared simply from scratch, is still being embraced-the freshest fish, the finest meats, home made pastas and sauces. The passion of the Italian people’s love for fine food can still be found here.
Come visit our jumpin’ bar-- the full dinner menu along with a lighter bar menu are both offered along with fresh, classic style cocktails, six draught beer selections and an award winning wine list.

We went here for my husband's birthday. Our sitter cancelled last minute so we had to bring our toddler with us. They were very accommodating with that change in our plans.

This was our first time there and the ambiance was cozy. There were 2 main dining rooms and the bar area.

We had the special, kids mac n cheese and the steak wrapped in pancetta. All were very tasty and hearty. The steak was probably a bit on the rarer side than my spouse preferred, but overall it was delish and will go back. The cocktails were really good and the right price. But they also had beer and wine. We did have the spinaci salad and cup of shrimp bisque-also very flavorful. For dessert I had their custard which is most like flan.

The service was probably the only downside. She started off strong by asking if we had menu questions and took our drink order, but it was quite some time before we saw her again to give our dinner order. The water and bus boys were super friendly and attentive.

Italianissimo is one of our favorite restaurants and we have been here many times in the past. The service is outstanding, the meal preparation is just perfect and the atmosphere is great. Our waiter was James and he has stayed right on top of things both times he's waited on us. He does it all with humor and that's definitely not always the case when a restaurant stays as busy as this one does. We were pleased to bring friends who'd never dined there on this occasion and they said they'd definitely be back. We will be, too! Thank you!

Italianissimo has really good food, but it is a little pricey. However, it is one of the few places in town with beef carpaccio appetizer. Check out the daily risottos and specials including crab ravioli.

I brought a group of 4 friends for dinner and was greatly disappointed. Our server did not go out of her way to ask for salads or soup when we placed our order and two of my companions had to request things from her. I realize people have bad days but if things are that bad do not ruin our night. We spent over $400 with drinks before dinner and wine at dinner to come away unsatisfied. The food was good though and service in bar prior to dinner.

Our experience was very good. I was even able to pick something from the appetizer menu and turn it into an entree. Good food, Good service. We moved out of the area and have not eaten here as often as we used to but we'll probably make an effort to come back more often.

So glad I found this gem! The food was the best Italian I've had in ages. The chicken marsala was so good that I was tempted to lick the plate clean (I didn't!). It was the real deal, not the crap they pass off at that place with unlimited bread sticks and salad. My lunch mates enjoyed their food as well. The prices were very good and I'll be going back here as often as I can.

Had been there once before a few years ago. Came for birthday celebration friday. Parking Took a while, no spaces and parked far away. Took a long time for waitress to make her way to us ( there were 6 of us. The Cesar salad was warm, and so so. The Risotto and tri tip was okay. Pretty dissapinted, sorry to say. The waitress was sweet, but messes up a couple of our bills and had to fix them. Perhaps we hit on a bad night. Blessings!! Us, Brown's

Excellent restaurant for Italian delights. All the pastas we have tried have been delicious and fresh, tender with just the right amount of sauce. Salads are also wonderfully prepared with fresh ingredients and lovely dressings. Service is pleasant and professional without being too attentive or delinquent. A real gem of a restaurant!

We wanted to go out and spend time together, but didn’t want to drive into Bellevue or Seattle. We had been to italianissimo in the past and decided to see what was new. We made reservations on Open Table because it’s hard to get a table on the weekends because it’s a popular place! Everything was great from the starter salads to the take home dessert. The service was flawless. We’ll be back soon!
