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.

Very good sausage, but everything else was just "eh". Used to be our favorite, but the service and ambiance aren't what they used to be either. Plenty of better choices in the area.

My father in law and I had the fish of the day, halibut. Was fixed in a standard lemon caper style with side of mixed veggies and mashed potatoes.
Only recommendation I would give is do a little larger or bigger variety of veggies, we had more onions & bell peppers than carrots & more substantial veggies and serve a little less mashed potatoes or add something to the potatoes, sadly there were bland.
Boyfriend had a pizza and it was good, not fabulous for the price but good.
A bit pricey, but good meal

We are a frequent customer at Italianmissimo. Every time we come here for dinner, we have had an amazing experience overall.

Came to the restaurant recently and everything was fine besides the service. We had a bigger party and I mentioned to the waiter at the beginning that there would be several separate checks, with a couple of people combined. After we were done with dinner, the waiter came out with the checks and gave my husband and I separate checks, when at the beginning we mentioned to him that we were together.

Knowing that I mentioned that at the beginning, I combined our checks with one credit card. The waiter came back with an attitude, disputing and mentioned “that it would’ve been nice if you had mentioned this at the beginning”.

When he stated that, I thought that was unprofessional of him to say that to a customer. He apologized but it wasn’t sincere.

The ambiance was great - the food was excellent - but we felt a little rushed by the server as she kept hovering. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and wanted to chat and catch up and have a drink or 2 before dinner but didn't feel we were allowed to spend the time. The waitress was constantly asking if we were ready to order, and then were we ready to pay the check. It was very rude and frustrating. I have not had this experience before at this restaurant. I believe it was just the server not the restaurant.

The pasta was very good. The bruschetta was awesome. I brought the wine, so it was great. ;-)

The service was extremely slow to start, I almost got up and left. But then it picked-up.

I recommend asking for a booth when making a reservation.

Good food. A little pricey - we had 2 appetizers and 1 main dish and spent $60 without a tip. They have a wide variety of dishes and their homemade pastas are so delicious! Wait staff was friendly and helpful - we told him we would split the main dish and he had them put it on 2 dishes! he got an extra tip for that. We could just eat appetizers and be happy. Prices are on the high side, so be prepared to pay...

We celebrated an anniversary. We were treated very well from start to finish and, as usual, the food was excellent, with large portions and great presentation.

This is our “go to” Italian restaurant on the eastside.

The hardest part is picking what to eat. Everything is made on the spot in the kitchen. Very willing to change or customize the dish. Always accommodates allergies with confidence. Chicken marsala is awesome as well as the lasagna!

Disappointed! I was expecting an upscale dining experience. The food was mediocre and the service was as bare minimum as possible. The server had zero personality and never checked on until the meal was over and she was looking for a dessert order.

My wife and I love this place for many reasons. The first is the food. We have eaten here many times and the food is always fantastic. Well prepared, served and tasty. Next, the service has always been exceptional, with knowledgeable waitstaff and great recommendations for dishes. I always get a gluten free pasta dish (a well-made penna with different preparations each time). The bar and drink menu is just right as is the wine selection. The bartenders here know how to make the perfect Vesper and traditional martinis. We will continue to return as often as possible.

This has been one of our favorites for 15 + years.... the quality and consistency has notably changed in the last year or so. This last experience the chop salad seemed old and was always a favorite as well as the Gorgonzola pasta dish- didn't taste the Gorgonzola--was much more of an alfredo ... a bit disappointed with a place that had always exceeded excellence.

My impression was that this was a good neighborhood Italian restaurant. I’d suggest updating the wall art, menu format, and a bit of polishing for the wait staff. The restaurant was very busy, but very loud too. If a sound reduction solution was made, then ambiance would feel more personal, more date worthy. Other than those criticisms the food and service was pretty good.

Our server was Danielle. She seemed arrogant and not warm and welcoming. We had to ask for things she should have offered , I.e., bread, butter. Bread plates were part of our place settings when we arrived but not once did she ask if we wanted it. When we asked , it arrived with our main entrees. In most restaurants, Bread is usually snacked on when waiting for the main course to be served.

We chose Biscotti for dessert and when it was served, we each received one small biscotti. The portion was stingy.

Always top notch service and food consistency. Great wine selection. Love garlic? Ask for it with your bread. Comes in I’ve oil. Never have to ask for anything. They just show up and ask or deliver. Yum!

I hate to give Italianissimo a good review because I do not want to share this place with everyone. It is getting more popular than when I first went there and it is easy to understand why; excellent food, good prices, great service and robust portions. So, begrudgingly, I have to say that Italinaissimo is a wonderful restaurant and it is a "default" place for my wife and I when we want to have dinner out, be it just the two of us or with a group. Go there. Get their fish dishes. I find that their fish is better prepared than many seafood specialty restaurants in Seattle. Get the pasta too. Heck, order anything because it is all excellent. Bon appetit!
