Gianfranco Ristorante Italiano
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!
The staff was very friendly and provided great service. The food however was heavily laden with garlic, and more garlic does not equal Italian cooking.
Hadn't been there in a while, sorry we missed out. Will definitely be back soon!
Friendly and courteous staff. Very flexible on customizing individual orders to customer’s special tastes.
Food and Service far exceeded our expectations. We loved it when Chef Joe came to our table to see how everything was going. We will definitely be back soon.
When it's a family run restaurant, the whole experience seems better...food was wonderful, our server engaging as were all other staff members...felt like home
Great atmosphere and variety of food. Absolutely loved our experience at Gianfranco Ristorante Italiano!
This was our second visit to Gianfranco and we would go more frequently but do not live close by.
LOVE IT!!! Will return again and again and again!! Have recommended it to many friends and family. They love it too!!
Nicky was great and food was excellent, the Halibut with pasta was over the top
Great food and great service. The only qualm I had was the light at the table where they prep the food was very bright if you sat behind it.
We go here every chance we get, worth the 40 minute drive, our waist lines appreciate that it is not more convenient, we'd be in trouble!
Food was amazing, portions were very good and the taste of every dish was out of this world. Reasonable corkage fees, and they even added a free desert to help us celebrate our anniversary. One of my favorites. You won't go home hungry.
Always a great experience! Great food, great service!!
Friendly and helpful staff coupled with truly outstanding food.
We have been to Gianfranco many times and this was not my favorite due to these reasons; very loud party next to us so it was hard to hear, they were very busy and short on wait staff so the service was just ok. I ordered the clams linguine which was overflowing in clams which was great, but the pasta lacked flavor. The others in our party enjoyed their pork shanks and halibut. We will be back and hope for a better overall experience.
My wife and I went here for the first time for our 16th wedding anniversary. The ambiance was cozy and charming, and every table was full. The staff was particularly attentive and friendly. The bread that was brought to us was a bit dried out, but the dipping oil was good. My wife got the shrimp ravioli and I was able to get chicken marsala, even though not on the menu. Both were quite tasty and portions were just right. For dessert, we go the tiramisu and cannoli, I would pass next time on the cannoli, but the tiramisu was awesome. We really enjoyed our experience and will definitely be back!
This was not our first time at Gianfranco. The service was a bit slow. Food was excellent as usual.
