About Italianissimo Ristorante
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.

Italianissimo Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
We anticipated a great experience after dining here last year and they didn’t disappoint. Our waiter recommended a bottle of wine that was delicious and also told us of a special Italian sausage that he liked.it was excellent! Whenever in Woodinville this is our go to and there’s some competition. We live in leavenworth and have great restaurants but italianissimmo is fantastic!
My husband and I are scouting venues for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Italianissimo has a nice private room that would work well for for 15-20 people. Of the half dozen places we've visited, Italianissimo has the best food & service by far. Sadly, we need a bigger room -- otherwise, Italiainissimo would be our number one choice.
Food and wine were good. Brat running around harassing family and extended family was an unwelcomed distraction. Service was somewhat slow but then it was New Year's eve.
We will return from time to time even though it is a bit of a traffic hassle. Good Italian isn't always available around the corner.
Your wait staff is outstanding, its actually one of the reasons we come to your restaurant. Pleasant every time, genuine and likeable.
We especially love Max, who is the best compliment to Italianisimo. Please give our thanks to him for being so kind and generous with his time on such a busy New Years Eve.
Oh, the food was great too!
I go to Italianissimo 3-4 times a year and this time was absolutely a standout! It was a Friday evening of a holiday weekend, so we went early (5:30pm reservation). We were able to get a booth so my elderly Mom could hear - she not once complained of the noise! All our meals were delicious - calamari steak, veal, lasagna and kids pasta. The calamari & the veal were SO tender. I plan to go back soon when my SIL is visiting.
Our server disappeared for long periods of time (Joan). We had to flag the other waiter to get a drink refill. Took forever to get food. She never asked how our meal was..hard to do when you are not around. Mystery is where she was while the other waiter bustled around. She was quick with the bill, which she had mixed up, and quick to see the tip. My lasagne with "Bolognese" had barely any meat and the sauce seemed canned. Costco has better frozen! We won't be back. Many better Italian restaurants to patronize.
We love this restaurant, especially Tuesday fresh ravioli night. The food always satisfies; the pasta is wonderful, the Osso bucco great, manhattan cocktail the best around in my opinion, a great house Chianti, service always prompt and friendly, the atmosphere comfortable, pleasant, and (at least on weeknights) fairly quiet. We always ask for a booth in the back, unless there is a big group there.
Wife and I have never been disappointed with any meal. We have eaten there more than 20 times. Wine selection is better than average. Best buys are the specials, spaghetti, salmon, halibut in season, mushroom raviolis, soups and many I have not tried. Deserts could be more creative.
Absolutely outstanding! We have been there many times before but we took 4 new customers, who fell in love with the food, the wine choices, the desserts and the appetizers. We had a wonderful time and everyone was extremely happy and I believe you have 4 new clients who will make Italianissmo Restaurante their new favorite place.
The food was good, but felt it what pricey. Service was not very good. Apparently there was something going on in another part of the restaurant that was distracting our waitress, so our service was very slow. At one point, when all the table around us had been served, I thought we had been forgotten. When I talked to the waitress, nothing changed and do not feel that she cared.
We got there and the waiter seemed a little off. Without greeting us he says “Do you want to hear the specials or you already know what you want?” In a not so friendly tone. Once we decided what to order I ordered the clams with pasta. Once the dish came, I felt the clams were pretty sandy. So much so that it was difficult to enjoy them. I am used to ordering that same dish at different restaurants, but this one particular, the clams just had that, where as other restaurants I’ve never had the clams be this way. Maybe they were just not the best quality or who knows. Between that and the waiter, the overall rating would go down significantly for me.
