We celebrated our anniversary and they went above and beyond with a rose on the table, free champagne and the dessert plate decorated with the words happy anniversary in chocolate. The staff are wonderful. We'll definitely be back.

With the entrees on the menu priced at about $30, we were very surprised to see the special seafood pasta was $55. Having really high prices on the specials was deceiving. One would expect them to be in line with the regular menu or informing of the customer by the server if they were so much out of line with normal items.

Cozy and charming! Must try the pollo gorgonzola and short rib ravioli---very flavorful. Be sure to save room for the homemade cannolis.

Montalcino is not only a great meal, but a great experience. It is truly like having a fine meal in the owner's dining room. He has been there to greet us when we have dined there and ensure everything goes perfectly, from the selection of a nice bottle of wine, to the food, to the service. My wife and I have been back twice in the last month since first finding it and will be there often to enjoy a nice evening out together.

Great food and customer service! We met friends here to celebrate my husbands birthday and they took such good care of all of us - starting with champagne upon arrival, amazing food and wine recommendations, and an entertainer stopping the table to play guitar and sing our requests! We all shared desserts since no one could decide which to get!! Love this place and will be back again soon!!! 👍❤️

The dinner was delicious but would not suggest the earlier dinner time. You feel rushed, so they can fit in the next seating. We had to request a second glass of wine because they weren't offering.

VERY Overpriced pasta. Was underwhelmed by the food and the overall experience. $200 for two people- shared 2 small appetizers, each had a pasta, no dessert and only one glass of wine (total). I’m always looking for new special occasion places, and won’t be coming back here. Quality was fine- nothing exceptional- at an exceptional price.

Recently ate here for the third time, this time for our wedding anniversary. The restaurant is aware that they are a high-end, special occasion destination, and ask if you are celebrating one with your reservation. The staff was attentive and warm, and they provided multiple complimentary services to help us celebrate (a glass of sparkling wine upon arrival, a glass of dessert wine to finish, and a long-stemmed red rose on the table). They were also very amenable to our special requests (instead of each ordering an entree, we ordered one pasta course and one meat course and split them both). We greatly enjoyed our visit and will absolutely be back!

This is the fourth time I have dined at Montalcino. As always, the service and food were outstanding. It is a great location for any special occasion. Keep in mind it is small venue and reservations are strongly recommended.

Service was spectacular. Owner came by table and was very pleasant. Food served was marginal. My pasta dish wasn’t hot and was very bland. Husbands filet was thin and stacked on a piece of bread to make it appear thicker. Hoped it would have been much better for the high prices.

Delicious food, great service in a cozy charming restaurant in downtown Issaquah. Small number of tables and popular so reservations are important. Prices are pretty high, but so is the quality.

I had a lovely birthday dinner with my family. The service (Mya) was exceptional & our food was delicious! One of my favorite meals ever. I love the singer, he is just perfect & always does fun songs for us. This was our first time at the “Mafioso” Table - loved it. Small, intimate restaurant with wonderful service & perfect food. Never disappointed when we eat here.
