Gianfranco Ristorante is located in the small community of Snoqualmie. We enjoyed our dinner at this local Italian eatery. The staff were friendly and helpful. They took care to help us slow our dinner down as we didn't want to rush our evening. The food was well prepared and most plentiful. Each of us brought home a box for the next day. Another time we might not order quite so many antipasti!.

We have already told several folks about our experience at Gianfranco. This is a do not miss. The food was the best Italian food we have ever had the pleasure to eat. Bring your appetite because the portions are large. This quaint place is very busy so be sure to make a reservation. You won’t be disappointed.

This was my first trip to this wonderful restaurant in Snoqualmie. I had heard so many good things about this restaurant from friends and family so I had to give it a go. Let me just say everything I heard was verified by my experience. This is a small intimate setting. The service was excellent by friendly wait staff. The food was fantastic. We had three in our party and we all ordered different dishes. Each of us raved about the meal we were served. The value was excellent. I enjoyed everything about this experience. Gianfranco Ristorante is now my "go to" spot. Plan ahead as reservations fill up quickly! Not a surprise that this place is always busy. The food is just that good.

We tried this restaurant based on reviews and we very happy with our evening. The restaurant staff were very nice and we were allowed to sit and enjoy a leisurely evening without feeling rushed which is something I very much value in an establishment. The food was delightful. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a new spot for a tasty Italian feast.

Wonderful service and amazing food. If you haven't been to Gianfranco Ristorante Italiano yet, make it your next stop. Gluten free or gluten full, the chef and staff understand the creation and craft of what makes food great. There is a lot of comfort food here, as you will see on the menu. It's all straight up delicious. We had spaghetti and meatballs, short ribs over polenta, and a multi cheese gnocchi, all of which was to die for. Highly recommended!

Love, love this place! We take as many friends there as we can. We also go there on special occasions. Due to a surgery, my husband is deaf in one ear and this is a restaurant were we can talk, even with another couple. And, all the food is excellent, we are partial to the specials list. We also love the antipasti appetizer...we have to order the half plate so we have room for our entree. If you can possibly manage it, their tiramisu is the best we've had since we've were in Italy 7 years ago. If you like to share, order the boneless beef rib....if you don't like to share, it is even better the next day. You're welcome. Are you still reading...make reservations and go already!!!

Our dinner was excellent - this was our third visit and each time it gets better. Our meals were prepared quickly given the restaurant was busy. Everything was fresh and flavorful. I have the pork shank special and I recommend it highly. One of my companions had the fresh fish of the day and was equally impressed.
