I am happy to report an excellent addition to the restaurant choices on Snoqualmie Ridge – Brunello Ristorante Italiano – or Brunello’s, as I’ve frequently heard it in the past few weeks.  We’ve now eaten at Brunello’s three times as a family, so I am comfortable giving my complete endorsement to this fabulous Italian restaurant.  The only downside is that the experience is so enjoyable, reservations may become a “must” if you want to have dinner there.

Personal Service

During each of our visits, we were greeted at the door by the owner and given a personal welcome, and each interaction with the staff was equally friendly and helpful.  Upon our first visit, I asked for recommendations and ended up ordering, to my delight, the Gnocchi.  To be honest, I’ve ordered it twice again when we dined there again.  On our most recent visit, we had a small wait, but the owner took us in hand and offered a glass of wine – on the house – during our wait.  I am sure that it is this sort of personal touch that will ensure that Brunello Ristorante Italiano will become a landmark restaurant destination for the area.

Excellent Food (and Wine) at Reasonable Prices

I’ve already confessed that I’ve only had the Gnocchi (with a delicious meat sauce!), but Jacki and the kids have each had other dishes and we are unanimous in our opinion that the food is excellent and worth many happy return (visits).  On my first visit, I was also pleased to see a flight of wines on the menu that gave me the opportunity to sample three of the wines served.  I enjoyed all three, though in subsequent visits, I’ve been very happy with my standard order of Pinot Grigio to go with my Gnocchi.

Location and Directions

Brunello’s is located right at the end of Center Blvd in “downtown” Snoqualmie Ridge, at the intersection of Ridge St, just across from the tennis courts next to Cascade View Elementary School.  If you don’t know where that is, here are the one-click directions.
