Food is fabulous and well priced especially if you hit it EARLY for the early specials. Call ahead to clearly define the hours for the specials as the time is quite specific and not broad. You may bring your own wine ($13 corkage fee which still means a considerable savings). I love their shrimp with garlic and butter sauce pasta... More

Eating Italien the day before Thanksgiving may be overkill but we were on the road and wanted a non fast-food dinner. Service was good, although a quiet evening in the restaurant. We had chicken parmesan which was homemade and solid. Portions were very large and the value was excellent.

Great service, food was excellent. For the quality of food and the atmosphere, the cost of dinner was excellent (very reasonable). We are travel to Seattle, stopped for dinner. I don't normally make time to do a review but my family (who probably eats out more then we should) was impressed.

We occasionally travel to the Seattle area from NE Oregon and always make an overnight stop in Cle Elum, Wa specifically to eat at Mama Vallone's. Their signature dish is Bagna Cauda (think Italian fondue). You have a small cast iron skillet on a burner at your table. The skillet is filled with oil, garlic and other spices. You cook... More

We went in for a light dinner. We had both had the soup and salad dinner. Soup was delicious, salad was crisp and fresh, focaccia bread was warm and good. This dinner option was a tad expensive, but it's all you can eat, so it's kind of up to you whether or not you get your money's worth. The atmosphere... More

We had the less popular Puttanesca and Grilled Salmon salad. The Puttanesca was ok, but I've had better. The salmon was unimpressive. The salad was mundane. Not a bad experience, but just average.

Best Italian I've ever had! The bagna Cauda (you cook everything yourself) is such a fun dinner to have with a small or large group.. Or even just a couple. The bagna dinner for 2 is around $45 and just way too much food for two people. You get salads or soup, your choice of two side dishes, a plate... More

We even bought a bottle of the house Chardonnay to take home! The place was cute and easy to find. The food and service was excellent for both of us and It was like eating in a comfortable home. We both had Italian dishes so can only attest to those.

Melt in your mouth filet mignon and prime rib!! The wine was perfect, the soup was delicious and we had excellent service! I'd like to say I only had one bite of the mud pie, but it was so good we ate the whole big piece! We travel a lot and would definitely come back here any time we are... More
