If you're looking for excellent Italian food on the eastside, then Clancy's Bistro is your place. It's in Kirkland, just north of Carrilon Point, in the same location of the former Foghorn restaurant on Lake Washington Blvd. Both the head chef and maitre'd previously worked at Il Terrazzo Carmine (in Pioneer Sq). The food is excellent and the views from the restaurant are spectacular, especially during sunset hours. We go there at least once a month. My favorite dishes are: Calamari al Salto, Linguini al Granchio. Check it out next time you're in the mood for Italian!
