Tuesday, 31 December, 2019
The single candle in middle of table in dark room is hard to see around. The constant changing of plates and changing silverware is disruptive. But the food and waitstaff and other ambiance is great.
Absolutely the best Italian food in the city at a really reasonable price. The staff is the best!
Excellent service. Delicious food, we'll definitely be back.
We have gone to this place for as long at it has been there. It was always a go-to neighborhood restaurant.
Alas, the times they are a changing (Dylan.) Menu items are up scale now, smaller sized and wine bottles are well... $60 was the cheapest red. Next tier was $80 and the next was … !! House red (in this- the land of fab red from Yakima) was neither local nor good.
Some unique items: small dessert beignets and fabulous hand made pasta, and home made bread.
Nice bar to eat alone at but noise is over the top; it has always been like that.
All-in all - from first cabin to average for prices.
My wife and I ordered the truffle vermicelli special at our server’s recommendation. Everything else she recommended was very good, but the vermicelli was bland and tasteless. Almost like something was left out. Our guest was pleased with her choice and we didn’t want to spoil the mood so we didn’t say anything at the time. Cantinetta is usually excellent but we were very disappointed with our meal. I just hope this was a one off experience and not a trend.
Despite having a reservation, we still had to wait 15 min for our table. The food was cooked well but the flavors were very bland. Overpriced for the amount and quality of the food.
Lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. Will definitely return.
There's everything in the world to adore about this neighborhood gem, from the superior service and thoughtful, delicious menu to the lovely space and delightful bar program. Love!
I love this spot... but the food seems to be going downhill a bit. The vibe, the bar, the ambiance is awesome. The food has gotten increasingly heavy to the point of almost greasy... they definitely need some lighter menu options to balance out the heavy dishes.
Love the place. The ambiance is the best and you guys do a killer job!
VERY loud place! Cant hear across the table, sound levels well in the hearing damage range (80-90 dBA). Food good though! Needs better front of house management- weird poorly trained service and creepy mgt(?) guy lurking around. Front of house maybe not well set up for a busy night.
We were there for restaurant week, so I didn't get a sense of affordability but it was some of the best Italian food I've had in Seattle. The panna cotta was transcendent.
Cantinetta is one of our favorite restaurants and we dine there at least once a month. Having said that, our visit for for dinner during Restaurant Week was a bit disappointing. For $35 for 3 courses, I would have thought they could have come up with something more exciting than their regular papperdelle. The dessert was amazing
This is a short review. I am a vegetarian and every time I leave Cantinetta I tell them, "Your food is delicious." I just had the Ricotta Mezzaluna with Beets and Poppy Seeds, which sounds boring. I trust their cooking so got it and NOT BORING.
Way too loud in the restaurant. Couldn’t even hear people at my own table.
Small but inventive menu
Friendly staff, good food and a comfortable neighborhood spot that never fails to satisfy!
The food was honestly very bad. It’s hard to do pasta wrong. Especially if it’s an Italian restaurant. The pasta was doughy and the sauce was bland. We were a group of 10 and got a variety of dishes. Not one was worthy of the reviews I saw in OpenTable and Yelp while making the reservation. I came here for am my birthday dinner and did not enjoy the meal at all. Will not be returning here - and will encourage everyone to avoid.
Wouldn’t mind having it a bit quieter as I often eat with people with hear aids but it’s so cozy and nice staff.
Consistently great with enough creative seasonal inventions to keep it interesting.
Food was good, service was good but extremely loud. Very challenging to have a conversation. We were frustrated
Excellent Italian cuisine and excellent service. We had our 34th wedding anniversary dinner here with our family and we had a great experience at Cantinetta.
Incredibly delicate pasta, tremendous flavor, great wine pairing by our wait staff, and a very romantic environment with real lit candle sticks. Couldn’t have been better!
Food and service was very good. Noise was reasonable, but could have been quieter. A typical problem in Seattle restaurants in general. Good value overall.
As always, Cantinetta provided a magical experience for dinner. The cocktails were wonderful, the atmosphere romantic, and the food sublime. I could eat the gnocchi everyday of my life. A great spot for a specialoccasion, or a lovely place for delicious, soulful italian anytime.
Best Italian restaurant I've experienced in awhile.
Thank you for helping us celebrate a special birthday.
Loved the food. Outstanding housemate pasta. Good service. Lovely warm decor. Unbearably loud.
Top notch service, excellent food. Go with the waitstaff’s recommendations. Will return.
Cantinetta never disappoints. It has the warm, friendly atmosphere of the little neighborhood restaurant but the quality of both food and service is superb! It feels much like we are lost in Florence or Siena enjoying a meal each time we dine here. We love it and can’t wait to return♥️
Cantinetta is a favorite of ours. Definitely a neighborhood gem. Always great food and great service.
Our experience at Cantinetta was perfect! I would recommend to anyone.
Love the cozy neighborhood feel of this restaurant. The staff is very warm and friendly. The food is authentic and fresh. We loved the tagliatelle which they make fresh in house every morning. You want to make a reservation ahead and f time and you won’t be disappointed.
Good food, decent service. Too loud from the bar, even at opposite side of restaurant.
My daughter’s 16 birthday and everything was spot on. From the atmosphere, to the food to the service. We had a fabulous dinner and will definitely return!
Yum! Food was great. Service was great. We had the table at the back for six people and it was really lovely.
Food was quite good, service was marginal, noise level high but workable. Cantinetta is a pretty neighborhood restaurant that we’ve gone to periodically over the years because they really know how to cook pasta (along with everything else). We’d recommend it with caution due to service issues.
Nice and intimate restaurant with fresh and seasonal selections that change constantly. Fun wine list to boot.
Our favorite spot to celebrate a special occasion. We love Cantinetta!
Best food! Great atmosphere! Fantastic staff!! Love cantinetta to celebrate or enjoy a lovely dinner. Always a great menu. Desserts , appetizers and drinks are wonderful. Short menu equals quality delicious foods!!!
Our evening began a bit rocky. I made a reservati
