Seattle Weekly's Description
Wallingford's rustic Cantinetta is a convivial neighborhood bistro known for its handmade pasta, delectable pastries, and fine wines. Warm and clean at the same time, Cantinetta is instantly likeable. After dining on chef Emran Chowdhury's gnocchini with basil pesto and sautéed cherry tomatoes or lamb sausage, studded with hazelnuts and chopped sage and sautéed with fresh nectarines, plums, apricots, and black olives, order the zuccotto, thin petals of sponge cake wrapped like a rosebud around a core of almond-infused whipped cream and chocolate pudding. It's Italian. It's American. It's awfully easy to finish.
Tips from foursquare
A Tuscany-inspired Italian restaurant. Has exemplary house-made pastas, and nearly half the menu is vegetarian friendly. A wine list that gives equal weight to Northern Italy and Washington state.
Try the Crispy Pork Belly - To die for! (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Braised Rabbit Cappeletti (via @Foodspotting)
Sit @ the bar, let Randy, Burton or Todd serve u a mean cocktail!
Cantinetta provides a blueprint for opening a restaurant in uncertain times.
