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...More

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.

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...More
