Thoroughly enjoyed every part of our meal tonight at Montalcino. Our server had great recommendations & was very friendly. All of our dishes were flavorful & full portions. The appetizer sampler that allowed tastes of multiple dishes was AMAZING. loved the bruschetta. Also. The lamb shank was tender & perfectly cooked. The best dish in my opinion was the Kobe... More

Don't understand any bad reviews because we go out to dinner a couple times a week and this is an amazing restaurant.. We made early reservation and ordered a wine sampler with the antipasto special. Amazing - dinner choices were hard to choose with amazing lobster, lamb and pasta specials in addition to regular menu. Got the seafood pasta with... More

Returning after a long break, questioning my memories. No place is perfect, but we give allowances that others may not. There was no Mozzarella appetizer on this visit, because when they have it, it is fresh. We like that, a lot. Whenever they are out of something, we have a wonderful alternative. A few of their dishes are served as... More

I was warned about the 2 hour window we had for dinner on a Friday night, but was not prepared for the constant rush and requests for ordering the next course. Many times during our meal we were encouraged to order. If you want cocktails, appetizers, first and second course and dessert, forget about it at this restaurant - there... More

Your other party of 2 who made the reservation arrangements has dined with us many times. He contacted me regarding this reservation and asked if your party of 2 can have a reservation for a certain seating time and length - we agreed. I know he informed you of this. What you failed to mention is your party arrived over... More

The bread with oil and vinegar was delicious. I ordered the gnocchi with meat sauce which completely drown out the taste of the gnocchi. Steve had the salmon with pasta and his was just okay, too. Parking was a nightmare. I will not return.

We eat Italian food very frequently and we finally got to Montalcino. What a delightful dinner! The restaurant is small so reservations are necessary. The music provided by Tony Was a great addition to a lovely evening. My husband and I each ordered a lobster pasta dish and both were perfect! The servings are large! Service is very friendly ....

We had family visiting who were staying in Sammamish. Went out to dinner at Montalcino's in Issaquah and mamma mia was the food delicious. 5 of us shared an antipasto plate that was out of this world, even had 5 large grilled shrimp on it. The main courses were wonderful, fettucine with gorgonzola, beef short ribs. Thanks to Mamma for... More

We went to Montalcino to celebrate a birthday with good friends, and it was an amazing dinner. Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to outside of Italy (and even when compared to Italy). Great food, attentive service and a very cozy restaurant. We tried items from both the regular menu and the specials, and a huge antipasti... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times and it never disappoints. From the steak, to the pasta, fish, lamb, or whatever you choose, you will be very happy! Best food by far on the Eastside and beyond. The service and some beautiful music from Tony once you enter is a great start to a wonderful time at Montalcino.... More
