This year we decided to have our company Christmas celebration at Montalcino. This great family run business set up a table down the center of the room and treated my crew like royalty. The food (and beverage) was great, the atmosphere perfect and being serenaded by guitar was the icing. Highly recommended. Make reservations!

One of the most intimate settings for dinner we have been to at a restaurant! The food was as close to home cooked as you can get and extremely flavourful. The service was excellent. Tip: Make a reservation and well in advance if you are looking for a specific date/time.

Very small, intimate restaurant in downtown Issquah, with reservations required in advance to get in! We were a little unsure as the email we received earlier in the day was very adamant that we could only have the table for 1 hr 45 minutes; it wasn't the most welcoming experience to a new restaurant. However, the service was very good,... More

Montalcino remains the one that all Italian restaurants should be measured against. The owners, servers, busers and chefs all are excellent and and attentive. The menu and wine list are extensive and full of exciting choices. It is small so reservations are suggested. Your meal and dining experience are well worth the time to call and make a reservation. We... More

Went back again to the heavenly Italian food with some new friends and Montalcino's just never disappoints. The food, service, and ambiance are always consistently superb in every way. I keep trying new dishes each time and somehow they are all amazing! Can't wait to bring more friends and family to experience the heavenly food over the holidays. :-)

From the moment we walked in, it felt like we were in Nonna's kitchen. The smells and tastes of Italy were great. Fernando and Cindy great you with Prosecco and a smile. The wine they import from Italy is the best. The food is the best in Western Washington (I think). Thank you Fernando and Cindy for bringing Italy and... More

I had another great dinner this past weekend. It was raining outside, but inside, this romantic and quaint restaurant was just a great experience. Romantic atmosphere, comfortable, delicious with impeccable service. I just love the red brick walls. My glass of chianti was as perfect as my date that night. And the food is just so damn good. I have... More
