Gianfranco Ristorante Italiano
This was our first visit to this restaurant, which was recommended by friends. The three of us all ordered pasta dishes and shared a bruschetta appetizer. The bruschetta was fabulous and the pasta dishes even better. My wife and I both had the gnocchi with langostino, which was without a doubt the best either of us had ever eaten! I might recommend sharing this entree because it is quite rich and the portions of the pasta dishes very generous. This is a small, quaint restaurant that was quiet even with a full house. I suggest making reservations. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant and trying new entrees!
Best Italian food in Washington hands down. I love this place so much.
Some minor non-food related short comings but as far as the food goes Gianfranco is excellent. That was consensus among our group of 6 experienced diners.
I am looking forward to going back.
We had our 5 year wedding anniversary dinner here. We could not of had a better experience. The service, the food and the atmosphere were perfect! Definitely going back!!
Gianfranco Ristorante is one of the culinary treasures of the Snoqualmie Valley. The quality has never wavered through ownership changes. It's a wonderful place for a romantic dinner, casual meal, or an event celebration. Looking forward to many more great meal memories!
The food and service were excellent, quiet enough for good dinner conversation.
Great service and great food
We always love this place. It’s not just the gorgeous food, but the friendliness of the staff and the intimacy of the whole experience.
We picked our favorite restaurant for our Valentine’s Day dinner. Gianfranco’s never disappoints. The food was excellent as always, the service attentive, and the entire experience was exactly what we’ve come to expect. Although the food is a little pricey, it is well worth it for an exceptional date with you Valentine - even if you’ve been married for more than 40 years.
One of my favorite places; and they can do true gluten free. I find this little place quite charming and romantic!
Good food and friendly, attentive staff.
we had a wonderful time. will be back soon. Loved the ambience.
the only problem for us is that its a 40 minute drive.
This is a family favorite! Wonderful food & friendly staff.
We found this restaurant online and decided to give it a try. My wife is Italian so she know authentic Italian food and this place live up to expectations.
Wonderful service. Very large food portions. Food arrived piping hot - right off the stove. Quality ingredients. Accommodating of food allergies/sensitivities
A romantic spot with delicious food and warm inviting atmosphere. You can tell this restaurant is run with love.
I have never been disappointed at Gianfranco. The food is a little pricey, but so worth it to always have excellent food perfectly prepared. Definitely my go-to Italian restaurant!
We love Gianfranco. They make you feel like you are part of the family when you dine there. Excellent food, atmosphere, and the small establishment makes for excellent memories!
We absolutely love it here! Our special occasion go-to and whenever friends visit, we insist on taking them to our favorite Italian restaurant! The service is the best around, the portions are huge, the food is always excellent...every meal here has been a real treat!!!
Fantastic food and friendly service. We love this place for its authentic and fresh made Italian cuisine
Last day of the year. Gianfranco’s never disappoints, it’s always deliciously awesome and warm.
This was the second time I have gone to Gianfranco on New Year's eve. Nice spot in quiet Snoqualmie away from the crowds of the city.
The food is good but not great, the pizza was marginal and the selection poor. The food portions are huge, way too much to eat so you will have a take out. I do not see that as a plus. Prices are typical for this kind of restaurant - $100 for two people including a bottle of wine.
Will I go back again? Probably not.
*Everything* we ordered was delicious... from the delectable calamari appetizer... right on thru to the tremendous tiramisu!
Delicious food, good variety and quality, feels authentic. Family owned and operated, cozy but a bit loud when full of enthused diners. Still had cheery feel despite noise. We've been dining here for years, quality reliable and consistent, always good. Kitchen is flexible for special requests and vegetarians. Nice wine list, location and parking easy. Tiramisu served in huge portions, nice but needed more booze. Servers do not rush diners, even when they stay too long (so sorry). Overall, very good, highly recommended.
Wonderful food, quaint atmosphere, nice people!
Great food, generous portions, accommodating menu items, pleasant staff, very nice experience all around.
I always so surprised about how great this restaurant is. The portions are great, the food is amazing, service if phenomenal. Truly a gem in Snoqualmie. For those who are gluten free, there are definite options.
One of very favorite places. So accommodating for your dietary needs. The owner/staff make you feel right at home!
Great couple's special on Monday thru Wednesday. Great food and service.
We had a fun dinner with excellent service and food. But you have to have a reservation to get in the restaurant. Walking-in is difficult to get a table.
Love giofranco they smoke their own salmon and they have amazing Cesar salads and pasta and meat dishes!! Make sure to get a reservation seating fills up fast
They are exceeding friendly and accomodating as far and altering the menu to meet your wants or needs.
Pus, the waitresses are very untuned to why you are there and offered a FREE FULL SIZE DESSERT of your choice on your birthday!
Challenging that their tables that accommodate more than 4 people are right inside the front door which makes you feel crowded and chilly (when people come and go) There is only room for two people to comfortably hang-out and wait to be seated and on a chilly night the wind can really rip through the valley.
Also the light above the waiters prep station at the front of the restaurant shone through the glass cabinet into my eyes the whole night. They really could use a larger vestibule and dinning area.
Bu this is worth it for the quality of the food and friendliness of the staff!
Fabulouso!! Great family owned, neighborhood restaurant, intimate and special. Unobtrusive and expert service. Quality Italian food. Will definitely return. Reservations recommended!
Been coming here for years and it never disappoints. Love the staff.
Excellent food. Greatest service! Thank you! We love this wonderful place!
What more can I say?
NEVER disappointed here!!
We found this gem a few years ago. The food and service is outstanding. The staff was especially attentive on this visit as we were celebrating our anniversary. I would highly recommend Gianfranco!!
We had high hopes for this restaurant because of the great ratings, both on Open Table and Yelp. This was our monthly anniversary dinner and decided to try this restaurant because of the ratings. The day before our reservation, we asked a friend if he wanted to join us and he said yes. I modified our Open Table reservation to be for 3 people and it was confirmed. But when we got to the restaurant, they didn't have a table that could fit 3 people, so we had to wait quite a while. The restaurant was full. So it really is popular as this was a mid-week dinner. We ordered 3 dishes that we've had other restaurants and found the food to be okay, but not as tasty. So we won't be coming back since we like 2 other Italian restaurants much better, and both are priced about the same.
Gianfranco is a lovely small Italian restaurant at a great location - right downtown historic Snoqualmie. Expect a big dish, split it (which is fun) or expect to take home. While the service was attentive don't expect them to dote on you. Dessert was large but delicious as well. It is a small establishment so best to make reservations.
One of our favorite places. The owners are the chef and hostess and are wonderful people. You always feel like you get special attention when you dine there!
