Visconti's - Wenatchee Ratings and Reviews
This was Valentine's Day 2018. Our food was excellent. Ahi was perfectly seared and Saffron Risotto tested fabulous. Beet and Arugula salad was excellent as usual, as were the Pancetta Prawns with Lemon-Garlic Aioli.
Service was very attentive without being smothering. Our waitress handled the busy night well and the busser quietly kept our water filled. This is the kind of service I prefer. Competent but unobtrusive.
They added tables for Valentine's Day and that made the aisles a bit tight and increased the volume somewhat, but not unbearably so. We eat here frequently and the atmosphere is usually fabulous, so I should note that since this is my first review.
The pricing is expected for this level of dining, but is by no means a great value. The wine list is extensive and provides wines at all pricing levels. Visconti's offers a great special occasion meal at a predictable price.
Our favorite restaurant in the Greater Wenatchee area. I like it better than my old haunt, the Leavenworth Viscontis.
As on last Saturday night, the noise level can be moderate because it is a small place with several interesting small dining rooms.
Sammy our waitress was fantastic as usual. The food is always very good. The wine list is constantly changing to introduce local and regional choices. The Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon, a new one on the wine-by-glass menu, was superb! Vineyard and winery in the Red Mountain area (Tri-Cities adjacent).
NOT GOOD. Small, crowded, dark inside and a bit worn looking, locally owned place with a pretentious wait staff and management burdened by an irritating parochial arrogance. We started with a salad to share. It was passable and the greens were fresh. We also ordered an appetizer of minestrone. Sadly, a small cup of broth with nothing but cabbage in it for veggies was served. Perhaps the overly dark atmosphere of the restaurant prevented the server from seeing what they were putting in the cup? In any case, we had high hopes for the salmon, but to no avail. When ordering two orders of the 29 dollar king salmon filet "medium", we specifically asked that it not be overcooked. BOTH orders were ruined by overcooking. Dry, and with a very strong fishy flavor, which made me wonder about the freshness. When this was brought to the attention of the waitress, she was defensive instead of helpful. Later, the manager came by to ask if we wanted another piece of fish. Too late. We declined. Needless to say, this was a disappointing experience. The waitress actually asked if we wanted dessert after this fiasco. The good news is, there are plenty of really solid, consistent, friendly and classy eateries in and around Wenatchee. If you must come here, it may be best to stick with the pasta.
Being that it was New Years Eve the place was busy with reservations. When we arrived they were running late on their scheduled reservation timing, which was fine. However, after 40 minutes of waiting past our reservation time we were the only ones left waiting. It turns out we were skipped over and marked as a "no show". This was also a first date, so the two of us were both getting a little awkwardly hungry. We were given a free appetizer for the inconvenience. It was mentioned at least twice more to us how they were sorry for the mix up. It was nice to be apologetic, but we were ready to move on to our meal. The server was friendly and attentive and the food was good, if not a little salty. Overall we enjoyed ourselves, and I always do enjoy the food and the service at all of your establishments.
Visconti's lived up to its well-earned reputation as the best place in Wenatchee for fine dining. Its extensive menu offered all the classics of Italian-American restaurants and our selections were well-executed and sizable, which meant that its expensive prices (over $30 for our entrees) seemed fairly priced. Service was friendly and efficient. But the timing of various courses on a crowded Saturday evening could definitely have been improved, as we ended up feeling rushed throughout the meal -- not a good thing at those prices! Since Visconti's is said to always be packed, one should be able to assume that the servers and the kitchen and bar would have timing down to the precision of a Swiss watch, but that was not so. Still, these two first-time diners at Visconti's from Seattle would probably return, should we find ourselves in Wenatchee again.
Nice make your own Antipasti board with lots of options. Caesar salad was VERY garlicy and strong tasting but still, it was good. Clams and linguine were fresh and well cooked. Carbonara was light and good although I prefer having some peas in for a little more complexity in the taste. You really can't go wrong with just cheese and bacon flavor though, in my book......... We'll be back and look forward to trying something else. All the food around us looked really good. The tables are really packed in there though and even on a Monday evening at 6pm all tables were entirely full. It was difficult to converse over the large tables shouting at each other on both sides of our table for two.
I love this place. Great and innovative cuisine with a really nice atmosphere
Tables are a bit crowded so it's loud but that's just part of the venue
This time the bartender was pretty rude but that's never been an issue before and we were given a dinner we didn't order but they quickly reordered the right dish and gave us a free drink
Have always gone to the Viscontis in Leavenworth. But we wanted to catch-up with a friend living in Wenatchee, decided to go here. The menu is more diverse and upscale. I had the grilled prawns and vegetables and loved it. My companions enjoyed their entrees as well. But the best part of the meal was dessert - gelato with limoncello. Took me back to Italy. Would come back just for that dessert.
Slightly disappointed with our first dining experience at Viscontis. We had heard good things and after transplanting from a bigger city in California we were excited that there was still the option of fine dining. Our dinner was an anniversary celebration and we spent close to $150 on a bottle of wine, appetizer, two meals and two desserts. We most enjoyed the wine and appetizer. Dinner itself was lackluster and slow coming out of the kitchen. Service was good but atmosphere felt a bit tight and neighboring tables conversations easily competited with our own.
Visited on a Monday night, during a business trip to Wenatchee. Staff was friendly and the food was tasty. A little noisy at first, but the intimate setting manages the noise well - such that it is a vibrant atmosphere with private tables. A nice balance. The bean soup and ravioli were absolutely delicious. If/when I'm back in Wenatchee, I'll be dining again at Visconti's!
Visconti's was one highlight of our get-away weekend to Wenatchee. The service was excellent, in fact, it could not have been better. The food, cannelloni for my husband and ravioli for me, was flavorful and a good quantity. The only negative was the noise level which was due to small spaces and a large party next to us. We are entering the senior category and loud background noise makes it difficult to hear the waitstaff and for us to converse. Despite the noise, we would return to enjoy the food and service again.
Wenatchee is so very lucky to have this great place in their town. IF they were in Seattle, this place would be a huge hit. One of the best restaurants I have been to in many years. Been there a few times, and each time is as good as the last. Very attentive service, comfortable, accommodating, and most importantly, the food is fabulous.
I am not sure whether to order the Lemon Crab Linguini, or the ribeye. both are perfection.
