5 star hospitality.
I am from out of town but I would love to come back. I had visted the falls and the mountain earlier that day. Just looking for a good bite to eat. I felt a little out of place at first but that all changed the moment I was waited on. I tried the calimari which isn't breaded or fried. It was wonderful. This place is small but great.
Calabria in Snoqualmie.
Over the last 2 years we have been to Gianfranco several times for dinner and from the first visit we loved the place. The owner Gianfranco is from Calabria, south Italy and undoubtfully he brings his Italian soul to this place. The woman in charge is the most charming and makes sure you have a great night out. The food is delicious and prepared with great care. One time we came late around closing time with a large group and we were welcomed with the same friendliness and warmth. We stayed till far passed closing time and had a wonderful evening.
If you like a taste of Calabria Italy, go visit Gianfranco in Snoqualmie.
The owner actually hails from Calabria - a very small mountain village - and he brought Italy with him. This little family run place is a gem. Excellent food, wine and service. It doesn't get any better than this. Oh they try...but not like this. It's the kind of cooking you savor as every bite is a delight to the tastebuds. Gianfranco (the owner) is very enjoyable and makes you feel at home, his Italian home where his daughter lends a hand as well. This has become one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the Northwest.
Wonderful Authentic Italian Food and very friendly service.
My husband and I were in Snoqualmie with our 13 month old, walked by this place and decided to give it a try. The food was amazing and the staff was very friendly....a little forgetful...but extremely friendly. We will definitely go there again....as a matter of fact...I think this has become my favorite Italian restaurant in the Seattle area!
a wonderful experience.
This small and romantic place is perfect for all occasions. It seems to adjust families and couples. The food is absolutely worth the drive to Snoqualmie. The best italian since my grandmothers cooking.
This is a wonderful little family-run authentic Italian restaurant. This is not your family meatballs 'n spaghetti joint. The cuisine is top-caliber, the wait-staff is knowledgeable and skilled, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere elegant.
But don't let any of that scare you off. Kids are welcome, the restaurant is inviting, and the prices are reasonable. Next time you drive up to falls, skip the Salish for dinner and try Gianfranco. You won't regret it.
