Excellent service, excellent wine at reasonable prices and great Italian food.
As usual this restaurant does not disappoint! We love it here and continues to be our favorite. We will be back for sure
The only downside was the guitar player. The music played was a little loud and music choice didn’t fit the atmosphere at all.
This place is amazing. The food is outrageously good and the service is fantastic. Prices are more than reasonable, especially when you consider what you'd pay in downtown Seattle for the same meal. Will definitely be back to Montalcino Ristorante Italiano!
Small and intimate setting that is just delightful, excellent food, great service. We love it here.
Excellent food. Everything we have tried is amazing.
We had a great meal and great service. No more no less
Have had the good fortune to dine all over Europe, Asia, the US, some in Central and South America. It doesn't get any better than this...
Montalcino never disappoints. I was dreaming about the tortellini and peas for weeks and was happy to have my fill.
This restaurant continues to amaze us. An authentic Italian restaurant tucked into an Issaquah old downtown side street which is packed at 5:00 for dinner because everyone knows they're going to get a fabulous meal, great service, all in an intimate setting. It's the kind of place you continue to talk about the next several days...it's that good.
V ery nice ambiance and good service, and wonderful food.
We have found home again. It appears that we have found home again. It's been too long since we've had our nearby, authentic, down home, wonderful Italian food respite. Thank you for the food. Thank you for the feeling.

Had a wonderful evening. Classy place. Would definitely go again on special occasions.
Good food, we enjoy it; intimate atmosphere amplified by voice and guitar instrument played by a live singer;
Very considerate wait staff. Enjoyed the menu options, interesting choices but a bit spendy for the specials. Maybe upgrade the flash lights. LOL Had a good time. Thanks Richard
Best filet I’ve had in my entire life! Love love love this restaurant. 5 stars hands down
Montalcino has become my favorite restaurant. They take care of you, help celebrate special occasions and have AMAZING food.
Lovely dinner for celebration dinner. Food excellent and service was impeccable!
Service and food was outstanding!!! Loved our server . This was a birthday event. We came here for restaurant week and plan to return many times due to our experience.
We went during Restaurant Week and will definitely be returning to try the normal menu. Two of our party ordered the calamari in saffron sauce for their appetizers--they both loved it. I had the cheese/meats plate and it was generous and beautifully served. The gnocchi with gran parma sauce was quickly devoured and the paparadelle with roasted red pepper cream sauce was over-the-top good. We had one of each of the three desserts; they were all delicious. Service was impeccable and the little extras, such as fresh baked bread drizzled with balsamic vinegar and the house-made cheese with truffles made it a special evening.
The food was great and the service was outstanding. We came here for Seattle Restaurant week and we will definitely be back to try some of the regular entrees. The homemade salami was wonderful!
Authentic, Italian cuisine, properly prepared with fresh, fresh ingredients. The leftovers still tasted great the next day. Service was attentive and accommodating. Wine pairing advice was spot-on. The moderate sized room kept the volume low enough to have good conversation with dinner. Others dining appeared to be a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. The menu is broad and ambitious - so many offerings - it's hard to believe they are all as well prepared as our dinners were. We will be back to try more entrees from the menu.
The dinner and ambiance was perfect for our Bday Celebration. it was definitely worth the drive! I have already recommended to many friends. Thanks Tony for your beautiful music.
Great food, great service!
Best Italian food I have had in the US. Comparable to a restaurant I went to in Venice, Italy. Great service and reminded me of a quaint restaurant in Italy. Amazing food and good wine. I plan on coming back soon.
Magnificent! If you go anywhere else to eat when you are in or around Issaquah you’ve made a mistake. This is a great find for an incredible meal. Try the short rib stuffed raviolis....you won’t be disappointed! I’ll be back for sure.
Dined at Montalcino as part of Seattle Restaurant week. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared--Italian comfort food. Not for fitness buffs. The housemade truffle cheese was a delightful surprise. The pesto sauce is the best we've ever had. Our server was cheerful and thoughtful. A great night!
Awesome as always!
A wonderful evening spent at Montalcino. The food was amazing! Everyone totally enjoyed their meal . Presentation of all meals was great; service was supburb. We will be back!
It was our very first time to dine here and sure enough we are not disappointed. The place was small but the ambience is good. The wine our server suggested were superb and the food were awesome! We had a very good service and everyone was outstanding! We will definitely come back and will put this place as one of our favorite.
We visited the restaurant during the restaurant week, but opted to select from the regular menu. Everybody in our party of 4 enjoyed the food that was both tasty and authentic. I had the linguine with seafood sauce and it was great, with a good amount of seafood and a red, tasty sauce. One friend had the spaghetti with lobster, while the other two had the chicken dish. The four of us unanimously agreed on the quality of the food, its competent preparation, and the friendly but precise service. We will return.
Always exceptional, very happy to see Montalcino participating in Seattle restaurant week. Excellent value for the promotion as well as full menu.
The food was fantastic but even better was the attentive staff who really went out of their way to ensure a great dining experience
I literally can't recommend this restaurant enough!! My husband and I have been wanting to try it out since moving to Issaquah and as soon as we saw it was part of Restaurant Week we jumped on the opportunity. The food was by far the best we've had since traveling to Italy. The staff (& owner) went out of their way to ensure you had the best dining experience possible. From giving us a sample of a truffle cheese his mother made in Italy, to making a point to shake our hands and thank us for coming in on our way out, the service can't be beat. We will absolutely be back!!!
On a recommendation from a friend, we went to Montalcino Ristorante Italiano for the first time. We were not disappointed. The food was fabulous and the service was too. We lucked out because there was live entertainment that night too. For a small establishment, this is a neighborhood gem.. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends, too.
The place is consistently very good to excellent. The best Italian food in Western Washington in my opinion.
Great food, wine & service! This is our favorite place, by far. Thank you guys!
Me and my fiancé were having a date night and heard of Montalcino and wanted to try it out. We were blown away by the service and the food and just the overall ambiance. Very romantic spot. The both of us had there wine flights which very good and very generous pours. The food is obviously amazing. True Italian cuisine. Portion size of the food is pretty big but definitely worth it. If you have room for dessert go with the cannolis they are very delicious. Overall, Montalcino’s is now one of our favorite Italian places to eat and we’ll be back again for sure.
It’s never a disappointment. Wish I could eat here all the time.
