Special night out in Sun Valley
We were a group of 6 looking for a fitting finale to our 4 day trip to Sun Valley and Il Naso did not disappoint! Our waiter Brent knew the menu top to bottom and we took all of his recommendations. We split several starters including the sauteed calamari, beef carpaccio, the special ravioli (sweet pea) and the lasagna - delicious! The salad with pomegranate vanilla dressing (how unique) with citrus fruit and toasted hazelnuts was a nice intermission before the main courses - our group got the roasted lamb, veal piccata and the roast chicken. All amazing, flavorful and perfectly cooked and presented. For dessert, we split the warm chocolate cake and banana cream pie. What a night - look forward to returning on our next trip to Sun Valley!

This is my favorite restaurant in the Wood River Valley, the food is consistently very good, service excellent and the wine selection cannot be beat for selection and reasonable prices.
Had dinner here with 4 friends recently. As I hadn't been here in many years was looking forward to some good Italian food but didn't find the experience particularly memorable. The execution for the dishes we had was overly ambitious and unnecessarily complicated . Lasagne, which 2 of us ordered, was swimming in bechemal sauge with some sort of a balsamic drizzle over the top. The pasta was overcooked so the dish had no tooth or the nice layering you expect from a well prepared lasagna . One of the other diners had the fish special which she said was good but very oddly presented with what piles of fish on either side of some vegetables with a bit of risotto and finished with drops of sauce dabbed on either side of the plate. The 4th diner had the chicken which was the best of the 4 as it was the most simply presented. The beet salad needed some brightness added as it was bland, the ceasar salad had fennel added which gave it an odd taste. The deserts were the best, the blood orange sorbet was very good as was the banana cream pie. All in all an overly ambitious menu not very well executed, sorry.

Calamari not to be missed
The Calamari is outstanding but it was only the beginning of a fabulous meal. Both of loved our entrees and we shared a beet salad that was equally gratifying. It is not a loud restaurant which is a rarity in the valley and the dining room is large enough that you don't feel hemmed in. Great place!
Highly recommend Il Naso to anyone. It was a wonderful experience all around. Top notch food, service, and ambiance.

Dinner menu was unusual and very tasty. Waiter was very knowledgable and service was excellent . Sauces were very distinctive and had great flavors. We will come back again!
Consistently great service and dinner
It was a very busy night and the staff handled it superbly. As always we had a fabulous dinner . The king salmon special was out of this world
Still a favorite in Ketchum
Our waiter Brent was outstanding, and the rest of the service staff filled in nicely. Brent was really accommodating with our 7 year old. Wife said there was more sauce than noodles in her pasta order, otherwise food was really great including tenderloin of lamb that Brent recommended.
Went here on Valentines Day. Was excellent service and great food. There was a lot of wine that they offered, but unfortunately some wines ran out and they also ran out of certain seafoods.

Nice ambience. Food not so good. We had calamari appetizer with too much sauce. Our main dish was the salmon special served over-cooked with dry quinoa. This will be our first and last time eating here.
Meatball, Lasagne, and Wine List cannot be beat.
We prefer the cozy and beautifully lit banquettes in the bar, but they don't reserve those, so arrive early and stake one out. Beautiful wine selection, pleasant service and great basics, ravioli, spaghetti, lasagna and salads, but ask about the specials and listen very carefully. I inadvertently ordered a piece of broiled pork fat covered with ground coffee topped with a sea scallop. Next time, I will listen more carefully, but the basics are incredibly good and we love this place. Try it!
Il Naso is back! W
We had given up on this restaurant a couple of years ago when it changed hands. A friend recently recommended it and it was great! Food was very good, wine list was broad and reasonable, prices were competitive and the service was excellent. Very glad to see this restaurant back as it was one of our favorites for several years before the owner was killed in a tragic surfing accident.
We started with a delicious beet salad which they were nice enough to split. Our friends brought a bottle of wine and Il Naso did not charge us corkage. I asked for a quiet table and they gave us "the godfather table" which was totally secluded. I had the lamb loin which was outstanding and my husband liked his osso buco.

The cider brined chicken is phenomenal, as are the pastas and the osso buco. The staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it so much we kept coming back.
OUTSTANDING, AMAZING, A MUST GO TO!
We had an amazing dining experience to celebrate our second anniversary. A must go if you go to Sun Valley. The food was fantastic and very reasonably priced. The staff was awesome. Again don't miss it!
The best of Italy and Idaho
The Osso Bucco is the perfect way to celebrate after a day on the slopes! My husband loved the spaghetti and meatballs. Service is attentive and friendly without disrupting your dinner conversation. I am very grateful that a good friend told me to try the chocolate bread pudding - it was super.
Food was so good I went back a second time, just so I could try different dishes. I was equally impressed.
Nice evening out in Ketchum
My husband and I spent a few days in Ketchum/Sun Valley between Christmas and New Year's and found this place in a magazine left in the condo we rented. We were fortunate to get in - had to reserve an early time slot for dinner but we're very happy we got in. The ambiance was great and the food exceptional. I highly recommend it!
Good food, busy!
We will be back when the Holiday crowds thin out. Service was a bit slow. Love the food.

The cider chicken was the best dish I've had in a long time.
Nice for celebrating a special occasion
I took my husband to Il Naso for his birthday. It was slack season and we were early, so he was concerned when he didn't see many diners. I convinced him to go in and we weren't disappointed. The menu is small during off season, but everything on it was wonderful. The free birthday dessert was a very nice touch (delicious bread pudding with caramel sauce.) the service was knowledgable and attentive.
Il Naso is always a special experience
The food is always good and freshly made. Very intimate atmosphere
Worst table in the place
We went to Il Naso for our anniversary and I noted it as such in our OpenTable reservation. The place was all but empty when we arrived and they took us to the empty back room and seated us in a small booth by the exit door. The worst table in the house, despite the waitress assurances that it was "cozy" and in full view of lovely empty tables across the room by the window. Both meal choices were just OK, not what we expected after our last visit there. Overall very disappointed in our experience.

We enjoyed the food preparation the service and the ambiance . Our experience was unrushed and relaxing. I started with a. Cauliflower/ leek soup that was heavenly. We all shared an heirloom tomato brochetta was outstanding. My campanelle pasta was a tad doughy for me. Don't miss the lemon curd tart for dessert.
Don't miss Il Naso when vacationing in Sun Valley.
Must dine at Il Naso when in Sun Valley, and say hello to owner Sam Turner who can be found near the front door most evenings. Try at least one nightly special by Chef Kate Metzger and save room for desert.
