Amazing that we got some of the finest Italian cuisine anywhere in a small town in northern Idaho. The food was delicate and perfectly prepared - and sooo delicious. A must try if you are in Sandpoint, Idaho.

Ivano's has been our favorite restaurant in Sandpoint since the 1970s when it first got started. Their specials always appeal to us so much that we rarely order from the extensive menu, even though my husband often orders their calamari. Their piccata sauce is one of my favorites. Just wish they were open for lunch!

They are the best place in town for family specials where you all share the same meal. LOVE This concept and really appreciate the way they treat customers and their wait staff like family.

This restaurant has been in business a long time, and there is a reason for that in this town. It has good food, good service and a varied menu.

Every meal I have had at Ivanos has been a taste explosion. Excellent pasta, perfect meatballs, good wine selection. Somewhat upscale in the casual Sandpoint world.

Ivanos has always been hit or miss, but we decided to go there the other night. The menu was decent...however the server was pretty clueless. I will say that the bartender was so nice and came over to confirm how I wanted my drink fixed. However, we never take anything home, but we had the large antipasto Misto, and ask... More

Ivanos always has top-notch food and very, very good service... Prices might seem a little high but the quality of the food and service are definitely worth it... By the way Dustin is awesome!!!

As stated in the heading, we like Ivano's food. We've occasionally felt the wait staff could have had a slightly warmer/more helpful attitude. Our last experience at the lounge was pretty disappointing. And it was the second time we've felt this way. We ordered hot buttered drinks. They arrived barely lukewarm, flavorless, and with a pat of butter floating on... More

My family has been eating at Ivano's since the 90's when Jim and Pam operated the restaurant in a converted house. It has always been a go-to place for us, especially when out-of-town guests come. Sadly, Jim passed away earlier this year, but his wife and business partner, Pam, is carrying on and nothing here has suffered. The menu gets... More
