Some of the best Italian I have been to in the US. Relatively small restaurant, but very comfortable setting. Service was outstanding, and not overzealous as in some places. Food was excellent. Nice job and thank you for a memorable evening.

Everything from the atmosphere to the food delivers a great date night. We started out with the recommended sampler platter and it didn't disappoint. Bruschetta, cured Italian meats and cheeses with olives, cherry tomatoes with fresh Buffalo mozzarella and basil, and grilled Prawns and Scallops. Our entrees of choice were the boars meat ravioli and Pasta alla Champion. The ravioli... More

This was my third experience here and everything about it was exceptional! I treated my parents to dinner for my mom's 80th birthday while my husband and I had appetizers and drinks next door. The staff was so wonderful and took great care of my parents. They checked in with me a few times to let me know how things... More

Tiny, intimate Montalcino is a perfectly authentic Italian dining experience. From Mamma's meatballs (yes, there really is a 'Mamma' in the kitchen), to the glass of limoncello at the meal's end, it is just beyond words. Our perennial go-to date night spot.

This year we decided to have our company Christmas celebration at Montalcino. This great family run business set up a table down the center of the room and treated my crew like royalty. The food (and beverage) was great, the atmosphere perfect and being serenaded by guitar was the icing. Highly recommended. Make reservations!

One of the most intimate settings for dinner we have been to at a restaurant! The food was as close to home cooked as you can get and extremely flavourful. The service was excellent. Tip: Make a reservation and well in advance if you are looking for a specific date/time.

This is a quaint,local intimate delight. Great service, great food and consistent! Make reservations as it is hard to walk in off the street especially on a weekend day like Thursday,Friday,Saturday. Great wine selection.

Very small, intimate restaurant in downtown Issquah, with reservations required in advance to get in! We were a little unsure as the email we received earlier in the day was very adamant that we could only have the table for 1 hr 45 minutes; it wasn't the most welcoming experience to a new restaurant. However, the service was very good,... More

Montalcino remains the one that all Italian restaurants should be measured against. The owners, servers, busers and chefs all are excellent and and attentive. The menu and wine list are extensive and full of exciting choices. It is small so reservations are suggested. Your meal and dining experience are well worth the time to call and make a reservation.
