    Our server was fantastic. All the staff were very friendly and professional. The food was excellent, just a little on the expensive side. My wife and I will definitely be going back!

    The portions were a good size but the risotto only had two sad small shrimp complete with shell and not devained even. By the time you unshelled them they were even smaller and not very flavorful. So the risotto was good but had no significant protein . For the price we paid for dinner here to we would like to have had it a bit more satisfying. The tagliatelle and gnocchi were just ok, nothing special . The tiramisu was great. Service was super slow.

    Discovered this neighborhood trattoria in Seattle thanks to Open Table. The food was very reminiscent of some of the best I have in Italy, plus the added bonus of a well-curated wine list that included great dessert wines to go with the remarkable tiramisu. Highly recommended.

    It was a very hot day and we ate inside. Since they don’t have a/c it was uncomfortable. Not their fault really as the food and service were excellent - just avoid hot days or sit outside.

    Great little Italian restaurant. The flavors were good. If you're into sharing, the portion sizes were a little small for two, and we had several courses.

    Dinner here last week, and consistently, is always a treat. The menu is rather short, but hits all the sweet spots. Fresh pastas made daily, and always a fish and meat plate available. We had the fried green tomatoes and fresh mushrooms as appetizers. Both excellent ! Our super server, Katie, was on top of the food AND the wines. she paired a nice red with our mains. Thank you Katie ! Overall a job well done ! We'll go back soon ! Cheers, Ed

    Lovely family dinner at an outdoor table. The homemade pasta dish options and tiramisu are what we came for and they did not disappoint. Our toddler appreciated the butter noodles and gelato.

    Salad - they have only one salad dish, it would be great if they had more options and fresh salad. Arugula was yellowing. Steak - it looked like cooked medium-rare but was too chewy to swallow. RISSOTO - I don't know if it was supposed to be tasted just buttery and fishy. The server informed me that there was a big prawn on the top as I ordered the dish. When I peeled the prawn, it was all black and brown. But the shell was not. The server did not check our table until we asked other staff if any server was charged for our table. We asked her if the prawn was supposed to be dark like that but her answer did not make sense. She told us that she already explained that there was one prawn and it was pan-fried. I don't think it was a proper answer. I asked her back, I think it was burnt, but she said that because it is a spot prawn. After she left our table, one of my group tried to eat the meat of the prawn. As she put it in her mouth, she spitted immediately because it was too fishy and not fresh. I googled pic of cooked spot prawns, but they don't have dark brown meat.

    Service was good. Food was good, although a bit overpriced given the serving size. The biggest detractor was how unbelievably hot it was inside the restaurant. I know it was an 80 degree day in Seattle, but it was even hotter inside.

    We've been here before and it was good. Food was kind of disappointing this time. Fried green tomatoes were bland. Mushrooms in the agnolotti were mushy and bland, though the fresh fave beans were nice. The Spot prawn risotto came with a single enormous whole grilled spot prawn with surprisingly little edible prawn meat in it. The panna cotta was supposed to have strawberries on top, but had some tough desiccated huckleberries in syrup on top instead. Also, they served my Negroni in a martini glass. Who does that?

    Lacked the appeared neighborhood charm for a place so well attended. Staff (hostess and server) were over the top and clearly uninviting and inconvenienced by most of the tables. I would be embarrassed if I were the owner having these two representing my establishment. Mains and apps very good (risotto and steak) except for the pork belly. Poorly prepared, tough and dry, should not have been served.

    The vibe of Cantinetta is intimate, warm, relaxed-lovely place to sit and eat a relaxed dinner. As a vegetarian I would have appreciated more veg to pasta ration as the price point is quite high. The portions overall were modest and would have hoped for more flair with the flavors. Overall we would happily go back.

    We dined at Cantinetta for my fiancé’s birthday. They cocktails we’re wonderful, the food was fantastic, and the staff was lovely. When we go back I think we’ll probably double up on the primi course and split the secondi as the pasta was really the show-stopper.
