Good food, though not the absolute best. Atmosphere was wonderful; more decorative than Olive Garden. Friendly staff too.

I would go here again just for the bread they served at the beginning. So yummy! We ordered the vegetarian Lasgna and Eggplant Parmigiana and were happy with our choice. One down side is that the portions are pretty small for the price. The ambience is super cute! They have pizza here as well and I'll probably give that a try next ti ... read more

First, The pizza at Ernesto's is great! Well made and generous portions. I've largely ordered Ernesto's through Uber Eats and have been impressed with the food when it showed up correctly. Some time ago I had an order mis-delivered and I ended up with someone else's food. We contacted Ernesto's and they suggested re-ordering and offe ... read more

I started coming here for the lunch buffet and it's really good at a really great price. Salad bar is always stocked and I love their minestrone soup. Rotating entrees each day of the week and there's always something that I say to myself is pretty damn good. It's not your typical buffet restaurant quality food for lunch. There's dif ... read more

We decided to come here for a late Christmas dinner after reviewing a few other Italian restaurants. This place had a good menu and we found several dishes we liked. Lourden was our waitress. Young lady, very likeable, didn't act like a robot like some people do, talked to us very casually like on the street. When asked some questi ... read more

Food was good, service at late lunch time was extremely slow. It took 1.25 hours to be served a sandwich and a cup of soup.

I've only had takeout but this was really good, I can't wait to dine in!  I tried the eggplant Parmesan which was a very generous portion and I had leftovers for sure. It came with a side of pasta (I opted for cheese ravioli), also tasty. The bread is a nice focaccia with great fresh flavor. I look forward to trying this again and wi ... read more

I love this restaurant and have been going there since they were in the basement of Fred Meyer. The staff is always super friendly and well dressed. The atmosphere is relaxing and environment clean. Their ingredients taste fresh and meals homemade. If you like chicken parmigiana, you will love theirs! Chicken gnocchi is the best I've ... read more

I love this place and have been come here for yeats. i have tried many dishes and have never found a dish I didn't like. The antipasto platter takes me back to Tuscany and the Cannolis and Tiramisu are to die for!

I love Ernesto's. Growing up we came fairly frequently or would pick up their amazing sauces to-go for an elevated home spaghetti meal. 10 years ago I even had my wedding reception there, service was great and the food wonderful as usual. They were very accommodating with budget and I couldn't have hoped for anything better. I miss c ... read more

We got there when the doors opened at 4pm Tonight. There were some large groups there so I knew it was going to get busy fast. We were seated and our order was taken, unfortunately we waited a long time for our food. Long story short, our order got lost, misplaced, who known's. At one point we even heard the GM talking to the cooks ... read more

I go here quite often because I attend events that are held here. The food is always delicious! Not only is the food great, but the staff is so helpful and friendly.

While this is only a 4 star review, it doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy dining here. Honestly, it started out as a 3 star review, but that felt wrong. The wait staff was inexperienced, and the food wasn't bad. It was not 5 star dining by any stretch of the imagination, but I'd gladly go back because they weren't pretending to be some ... read more

We have been going to Ernestos for 35 years. It's always been great with good Italian food close to our home. Tonight, we brought our new neighbors to Ernestos. Our visit tonight was not as usual...the salad bar needed to be replenished!! We will return, hoping it returns to the great Ernestos!!
