I had the Tortellini Ivano. It was one of the best Alfredo that I have had. CREAM-MY. I can almost taste it now. We sat outside, and it was a bit noisy, but nothing unbearable. Just when I thought the Alfredo sauce was CREAM-MY--we ordered...More

Ivano's has been around for years but every time I come back which is yearly, a seasonal summer visit, the food gets worse. I am sorry to say that my visit on 8/14/17 was so bad that I have now written off this restaurant. The...More

Very good italian. Homemade sausage is excellent. Bolognese sauce was very good. My spouse said the lasagna sauce was heavy on the tomatoes. Bread was good, but could have been warm. Service was excellent.

It is late; and at 8:30 we will be the last seating. The patio on a summer's night is a no brainer. Luckily there is this luscious arbor to crown our dinner. The service is young, cheerful and slightly inexperienced; charm fills in where expertise...More

Our family loves Ivano's and we visit several times every summer. Menu is huge and the food is great. We really enjoy sitting out on the patio on a warm summer evening. Good wine list. One of our favorite spots in Sandpoint, for sure. The...More

Best Italian around, and the top in it's class until you get to Seattle - but even then it would be a contender. Pairing 5 star service with delicious, big family style portions of food, with a tastefully selected wine list (including award winning local...More

Amazing that we got some of the finest Italian cuisine anywhere in a small town in northern Idaho. The food was delicate and perfectly prepared - and sooo delicious. A must try if you are in Sandpoint, Idaho.

Ivano's has been our favorite restaurant in Sandpoint since the 1970s when it first got started. Their specials always appeal to us so much that we rarely order from the extensive menu, even though my husband often orders their calamari. Their piccata sauce is one...More
