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

My husband and I ate at this restaurant while visiting our children in Issaquah. I ordered halibut and these people served me a huge piece of white fish that was NOT halibut. I was so disgusted and offended that a restaurant would deceive their patrons this way. I couldn't eat it. I didn't even tell my husband until the next... More

Sorry to hear about your experience. We have been serving Halibut for years provided by the best suppliers available. Enjoyed by thousands of our customers and customers from the Northwest know there Halibut, could never get away with serving fake Halibut if there is even such a thing. We would never fraud our customers for there is no reason to.... More

My boyfriend took me here for our anniversary and it is a cozy restaurant, dimly lit with amazing food. They do have mini-flashlights on the table so you can read the menu, when I say dimly lit I mean VERY dimly lit. Which I actually liked, it felt more like we were having our own private restaurant to ourselves :)... More

Came here with friends for adults only "dining-out" night. We expected a lot more reading all the rave reviews and hearing from people. The appetizers were absolutely amazing with a sampler plate, but entrees were disappointing. We sampled each others' food as well as we ordered a wide variety including seafood, pasta, proteins---none of the entrees were finger-licking good, just... More

Hands down this is the best Italian Restaurant in the greater Seattle area! Montalcino's is family owned and they are from Italy. They know the true meaning of Italian food and it shows in the quality of the food, wine and service. The pasta is homemade fresh daily as many of their dishes. On my most recent visit I had...
