                                            We come here often and love it but tonight was a bit of a disappointment as there was only one main server.

                                            First time here and loved it. Service was great. We knew our server from another restaurant and it made the meal even better. Menu is short and the food is excellent. We heard there is a new chef so we will follow on Instagram to see how much better this restaurant becomes. Looking forward to coming back.

                                            Service was great. We ordered the mussels. Our waiter came back and told us they ran out. We later added the special of the day, pan seared cod. Our waiter came back after 30 mins and told us they ran out again. Endive in our salad was not fresh. The pasta dish we ordered was served lukewarm. Unfortunately, it was not a great experience.

                                            Wow! We dined here on 5/11 and had a great time. We ordered 5 plates and had them coursed, so we ended up spending over 2 hours eating but it was all amazing. Our favorites were the prosciutto, clams, fried baby artichokes, and the fennel sausage pizze. Divine wine and limoncello. I should have asked if they sell their house wine by the bottle - so good.

                                            As most must know now? Bar Cantinetta is one of my regulars. Here with my regular friends twice a week. Had the beets, prosciutto, Bolognese, tagliatelle with mushrooms and Zepolle. Excellent as always and even short handed still excellent

                                            I’m a regular. That said I know how difficult supply is and also staffing! So! The new head chef here is doing a good job! For us regulars, and not just here, more menu additions, changes or add specials would be good. I expect that will be months or a year or so down the road to be easy for any restaurant! The staff is great. The food is excellent. And, neighborhood at least a little. Saw the wife of another restaurateur here this evening and had a brief chat. All good!

                                            Amazing appetizers! Pasta was good as well, but the apps definitely stood out. Great service and ambience as well. Will be back soon.

                                            This place is such a treat to go to. Cozy, intimate, yet elegant atmosphere, creative cocktails, and incredible food. Our waiter seemed stretched thin, but he was friendly and wonderful when he got to us. The food is a bit pricey, but as a special occasion/once in a while treat, I highly recommend!

                                            It them 12 minute to serve me a drink. You are 6 inches from the next time, packed in like sandries. I had clams and the broth tasted burnt.

                                            A spur-of-the-moment dinner during Restaurant Week lead us to Bar Cantinetta-Madison Valley. We booked a table inside but based on noise level and safety concerns we changed our minds. In addition to an unseasonably warm day, outside heaters kept us warm. Tables were spaced with social distancing in mind. Our waiter was prompt and consistently present as needed without hovering constantly. The food was delicious!

                                            The room’s noise level—house speakers, loud table beside us— was an unfortunate distraction. But the staff were very responsive and generous, even bringing us glasses of bubbly for the birthday girl in our group. Big props for that. Food was exquisite!

Waiter was very helpful and had a great personality. Food was fresh and tasty, and the wine list had good diversity. We will definitely be back!

                                            The menu items became less. We have been there many times and liked their wagyu or paint hill steaks. They didn’t have them anymore so we were disappointed. This was our birthday dinner and we indicated it when making reservation thru open table but was disregarded. Service was not as good as it used to be but acceptable. Hope this place gets better now that we are recovering from the pandemic. Missed our favorite waiting person. Please bring back the good menu and service you used to have. Thanks.

                                            This is a great looking place with a good menu. The food was average, with the appetizers actually being the best part. The service was mechanical and the staff were not welcoming; almost as if it was a bit of an annoyance that we were there. Not sure what explains this as we have been at the Bellevue location and it was an excellent experience.

                                            I've been before and it was great, but this time not so much. I reserved a table at the bar but the stuck me outside and we froze. That also meant the food got cold quickly. And they forgot one of my appetizers - great they didn't charge me, but still not awesome. I'll give it a go again because I've had otherwise good experiences but last night was a big miss on their part.

                                            As usual, food and service were excellent! Certainly Italian! And certainly some Toscanini. (If you follow me you know I eat in Italy routinely) For the US I am sure I may be too specific! It’s great food! And super service!

                                            Booked a table through OpenTable for indoor table. Later received a message about a Change to our booking. Apparently they moved us outdoor on a cold rainy night. My wife sat down on the seat cushions only to discover it was soaked from the rain. Annoying to book a table and then have the restaurant change it.

                                            As you all must know a regular of mine and went since I should be outside with others during the Ukraine war. Happily the couple next to me mentioned a few things I could hear and we had many friends in common. But the restaurant! As always: excellent food, excellent service (the management was even there for a little) I wouldn’t be back if it wasn’t for excellent!

                                            We loved it! The service was great, the mixologist is great at customizing drinks to your preference. The couple next to us said it was the best bolognese they’ve had since their travels in Italy. Most of all, couldn’t get enough of the fried artichoke hearts. We deemed this place our new date-night spot, highly recommend.
