For my 14th birthday I ate here for dinner, as a time to commemorate the occasion. The food was pretty good despite the fact that the meal portions were a bit too much for me to chow down, and the atmosphere was romantic with a dark candle-lit ambiance. It practically felt like I stepped into the streets of Italy itself,... More

We came here for dinner before going to see Huey Lewis and the News at the Snoqualmie casino. We were under impressed. The food had ingredients that had clearly been frozen with a rubbery texture and lack of flavor. The cheese and meat plate was quite nice, it was just our entrees that disappointed. This is a restaurant that we... More

My wife and I, visited Gianfranco Restaurant experiencing truly wonderful meals, especially Mike’s Misto Mare (hopefully I got the dish name right) which was to die for. The next night I had the same dish at another Italian restaurant, this time in Issaqua. While the presentation in Issaqua was professional and the food good, compared to the meal and our... More

Extensive menu...friends had ordered lasagne, seafood ravioli, I had the pork loin rolls in sauce with au gratin potatoes and beautiful firm vegetables.. The sauce was very flavorful and rich... Lasagne portion was huge and seasoned perfectly. Ravioli had crab and... More

Indeed, as the other review mention, the restaurant is small and lacking in decor. There are some kind of vinyl table covers that serve as table cloths, and there are paper napkins. To their credit there's a pepper mill on the table. Service is friendly, maybe a little amateurish, but not bad - and pretty quick. We ordered the antipasto... More

I've visited Gianfranco several times, most recently at the end of July, and have always been pleased. It's a beautiful and easy drive from Seattle which you can combine with a visit to Snoqualmie Falls, the casino or just a stroll through downtown. Ensure you make a reservation, as the restaurant is tiny and quite popular. I'd say this restaurant... More

Quaint neighborhood restaurant in downtown Snoqualmie. Nice menu, hardy portions. Can't go wrong with a choice. Quick tip, enjoy the winery next door for a post dinner drink and music on the weekends

Wanting to have dinner close to the Snoqualmie Casino, we selected Gianfranco, based on it reviews. We were not disappointed whatsoever. To start with, the house wines were reasonably priced ($8.50). Then we ordered a Caesar Salad to split. The one for two was ample sized with very fresh greens, a light dressing application and plenty of cheese. Each of... More
