Cantinetta Bellevue

Almost 4 year-old Italian pasta house on Main Street Old Bellevue, Cantinetta wowed GB.

The local-vibe & small menu make the restaurant seem landmark, especially with local ingredients & handmade pasta. Being our first time, we ordered a salad to share & 2 entrees. GB ordered the Vermicelli (braised veal, pea vines, cipollini, pickled chili), and I the bolognese (of course!).

The portions were tiny (and thus pricey for the size!). However, the food was fresh and GB LOVED the vermicelli pasta. I’d recommend for special occasions, or if you’re not famished.
