best Italien food

When i travel to Seattle from Northern California this spring, I would love to find an authenic Italien restaurant that is recommended. I especially would like to find a restaurant that is run by the owner, not olive garden necessarily. Thanks

Thanks for the Italien tips. I haven't had a great pizza or excellent authentic spagetti sauce since I moved away from New York many moons ago.

Il Terrazzo Carmine gets great reviews from my friends and is right downtown (southern end of Pioneer Square). It is rather hidden from the street. http://ilterrazzocarmine.com/. Me, I don't like Italian food much, but when I did go it seemed very good.

You might want to try Cafe Juanita in Kirkland. Northern Italian food. Owner chef. Amazing food with a ever changing seasonal menu. Dinner there is a treat and the chef is the real deal. She closes on Mondays.

Do consider Tulio (downtown at the Vintage Park Hotel) and the Pink Lady (Pike Place Market), an Italian-American restaurant/caberet.

Serafina is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant close to downtown Seattle (in Eastlake). It's authentic, cozy, romantic and the food is excellent.
