From the moment you walk in we hope you will feel like you are a guest in our living room. We believe authentic Italian food and wine are a way of life. All dishes are prepared with passion and tradition using only the freshest, highest quality, real Italian ingredients. Montalcino is a perfect location for a romantic date night, elegant birthday or anniversary celebration, a relaxed family dinner, or any special occasion.

About the restaurant
It's difficult to say what is most appealing about the Barking Frog - the food, the wine, the atmosphere. All of the above earned this casual bistro featuring country fresh Northwest cuisine rave reviews. Honors have included "Restaurant of the Year", "Most Innovative Wine List" and "Wine Grand Award" awards, presented by the Washington Wine Commission. Delectable dishes entice guests to linger in the light-filled dining room or to gather around the fireplace. While in the summer, lunch and dinner are served in the courtyard.
