Il Naso Ristorante Italiano Ratings and Reviews
The food was absolutely fabulous with a wonderful menu and extensive wine list The restaurant had a lovely ambience and was quite inviting Our waiter was very nice but not all that attentive. He never came back to ask how everything was and forgot to bring one of the side dishes. The place was pretty busy so maybe he just add too many tables that night.
So disappointing. We have eaten at Il Nash many times over the years and every time has been special. Not so Monday night. The kitchen was VERY slow, VERY. The poor waiter was embarrassed. Then the food was good, but not great. For example, one person in our party ordered the lasagne and the portion was teeny, tiny---so small it appeared to be a child's portion. No exaggeration. The four of us actually laughed, which made our waiter uncomfortable. But at that point we had waited so terribly long for our entrees we we not going to send it back! We usually order after dinner drinks or dessert but with the slowness of the kitchen we just left. Such a disappointment!
Enotecca never disappoints!
We always enjoy this restaurant whenever we remember that we have to make a reservation ! Very rarely can one just slip on and get a table. On occasion you can sit at the bar and this is fine too. The food is amazing. Small plates to share, great appetizers, wood oven pizzas, salads and excellent entrees!
We had burrata, Cesar salad, lamb pizza, chicken and duck confit every dish wonderful!
I'll Naso is an attractive restaurant with good service. However, we were disappointed in the quality of our entrees. The meatballs were tough. The veal piccata was over cooked at best. Frankly, it didn't even taste like veal. Our Caesar salad was good and the chocolate sorbet was excellent.
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner last weekend at Il Naso. My wife enjoyed some delicious lamb chops, seasoned and cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the ravioli of the day. We had a beautiful cabernet to accompany our meal and were entertained by quiet live music. Nice date for us.
We have gone to il Naso before and always had a great meal and experience. Not this time. We ordered 2 salads, Lasagna and Truffle Pasta and a glass of wine. The salads came on time however we sat for 1 1/2 hours waiting for 2 very simple dishes. The waiter kept telling us the food was on the way but he appeared to be confused and out of it.. Finally when we said we were going to leave the meals appeared. The lasagna was fine however my pasta was luke warm and had no taste. I have ordered the truffle pasta before and loved it. We were told the kitchen was backed up however the restaurant was not at all busy and 2 tables got food before us. They had a better waiter I guess. They took our salads off the bill however no manager or owner came by our table either to explain the issue which I thought was odd. Too bad we used to love this place we will not be back...
This is one of our very favorite restaurants in the Sun Valley area. The food is consistently fabulous and the owner, Sam Turner, is without a doubt the nicest man ever !!! He personally greets everyone and adds such a personal touch. The staff are excellent and the ambiance is superb. This is the best restaurant...cannot recommend it highly enough.
I am sad to say that the food was a huge disappointment. The evening started out really well at the wine bar in the entrance. The server offered us some tastings as we waited for friends and tried to decide on which wine to order. We were seated at a very nice table in the corner. The ambience is nice and very relaxing. The food was a terrible. My friend ordered the Beet Salad and it was fine. My other friend order the Filet and it was about the size of a half dollar. We actually joked that they put the other half in the doggie bag for us. The dollop of butter on top was as big as the Filet. My lamb chops were half the size they should have been (very thin) and not very good. My husbands stew came cold and they had to re heat it. The flavor was good but the stew was cold. Our gelato was the high light. It was really sad to have such a bad dining experience.
We have eaten at this restaurant many times over the past six years. It is consistent for its great, professional service; wonderful, authentic menu; excellent food quality and fresh ingredients. The atmosphere is lovely. It feels - simultaneously - like a great place to run into friends AND enjoy a private, romantic evening.
I had the chicken dish that was without question one of the best chicken dishes I have ever eaten. My entire table wanted to switch their order. The chef blended in just the perfect amount of Schiracha for a little kick that was a perfect complement to the chicken and the vegetables. Two people at our table ordered the canallene pasta, which I thought was a little bland. Anything is probably a little bland after Schiracha. :)
The restaurant had a swanky appearance and the service was great. The food was inconsistent. The salad and soup were okay. My husband's chicken dish suited him as it was pretty heavy and very salty. The best description of my chicken and mushroom pasta dish is that it was essentially what I would get if I made a box of Annie's pasta and white cheddar and topped it with some microwaved Trader Joe's chicken breast strips (and didn't put any mushrooms on it). But at least at home I could put Sriracha sauce on it to give it some flavor (and include mushrooms). Again, the service was fine, the waiter offered to bring me something else, but I don't like to throw away food. The dish shouldn't have left the kitchen in the first place. Overall review: all show, no go.
I ordered the veal piccata and it not only didn't have 'plate appeal", but it was pounded so thin and scored that it was really unattractive and not very edible. I have had other better meals so we will come back. But, that dinner should be revamped or scrapped. Sorry to give that review.
I really like the friendliness and ambiance.
We were in Sun Valley for an event and made reservations at Il Naso. We were warmly greeted, but the restaurant itself was hot, as in temperature from not having working air conditioning on a very warm day and evening. We chose some wine and appetizers which were good. The dinners arrived, and while good, nothing to rave about; the menu lacks some creativity. The server was a bit slow, but we could tell he had too many tables and the temperature also made him uncomfortable I'm sure. Will try the competing place up the road next time we are in town to compare.
Our waiter was great.
The food was wonderful!
My only negative:
We arrived earlier than our reservation time and wanted to sit in the bar. There was no problem with that, but the young hostess did not check us in thru OpenTable, even though I reminded her to do so.
Otherwise, a perfect way to celebrate a big birthday!
We had a 7:45 reservation. Didn't get our food till 9:45. The salmon was great, the pasta awful. When speaking to the chef, didn't get much resolution (a few meals were written off and free desert was offered, but at 10 pm after 2 1/2 hours, we no longer wanted dessert) Chef did claim that Open Table overbooked the restaurant. Perhaps they could use some training on how to use your product?
