This was definitely the best of the Seattle Italian restaurants that I have dined at. The staff were pleasant and attentive, the food was incredibly tasty and the prices were very reasonable. I loved that you can choose between a small or large plate of any of the pasta dishes. Don't expect the food here to be revolutionary...this is good,... More

This restaurant sets the standard for all high end Italian restaurants in Seattle. It's not cheap but the food is wonderful and the service is great. It is very much a special event sort of place. The dining room is beautiful too. A must do spot in Seattle.

A busy place, but their efforts to control noise work nicely. Our server was professional, knowledgeable, and delightful, but spread too thin (listening, management?). The good ... my memorable veal scallopini. My first reaction that more herbs would help, dissolved when the taste of truly excellent veal coated my mouth. It was so good, i didn't really care about the... More

Attended a business meeting, the food and service was top notch! Great wine selection, perfectly done salads, and the dinner was perfectly done! I recommend the duck, it will melt in your mouth, great flavor.

You know when you want to go somewhere with friends, be able to hear them and feel like a grownup and not a hipster? Well this is the place. How in the WORLD it took me so long to finally go here is beyond me. This is Italian at it's best with service you only find in NYC. Thank you... More

We experienced some of the best service I've had in a long time at this restaurant. However, for the price, the food was quite disappointing. We arrived on a Saturday night without a reservation and were very grateful to get 2 seats at the bar. Everyone from the hostess, the bar tender, and the servers were incredibly helpful, friendly, and... More
