Ivano's Ristorante

Roasted tomato caprese, ravioli toscano, saltimbocca, scaloppini di anatra. Or maybe just tiramisu and an espresso. You’ll feel like you’re in Italy just reading the menu. And owners Jim Lippi and daughter Jessica treat you like family. Gluten-free diners welcome. (July 2013)

Restaurant Details

The Italian stalwart of the Sandpoint culinary scene provides fine dining without pretension and a family-friendly vibe without too much noise. It's a happy balance that owner Jim Lippi has been bringing to North Idaho locals and visitors alike since 1984. Ivano's has continued to pump out Italian favorites, like the Tortellini Ivano, a rich — but not too rich — cheese pasta served with prosciutto, mushrooms and a garlic cream sauce. (March 2013)
