“Great Family Dinner”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Four of us dined here last night and loved it. Casual, affordable, clean, with great service and excellent food. This place was packed and there is no question why. Not one piece was missing from this dinner. Well done!

“Italian ?????”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

One of the most suffering things for an Italian is to see how our conception of food is abused abroad. Everytime you serve a pale imitation of our culture, an Italian dies!

“Great Find in Seattle”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Found this gem of a restaurant just a couple of blocks from the convention center. When I asked the hotel front desk person if it was good, they raved about it.

The restaurant is small and has a warm atmosphere. They do not take reservations or call ahead. They do it the old fashioned way - You have to show up and wait. Our wait was only about 20 minutes and it was well worth it.

The food was great! The service was even better. Yes, we had a waiter, but the entire staff helped along the way to make sure our experience was wonderful. The Tiramisu was amazing!

When we were leaving, the kitchen staff was thanking us for being there through their window. Loved the atmosphere! Ristorante Machiavelli will be on my 'must' list on my next trip to Seattle.

“Roman-esque”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Very typically Roman Italian food. Really good pastas and outstanding Veal or chicken Milanese. Noisy bistro-style surroundings and good bar (though tiny). If you want really good trattoria food, this is the spot! But come prepared to have a cocktail (or two) and wait. No reservations and all of Seattle knows how great this spot is!

“Great Food”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Recommended by a local, this place was open on a Monday which was perfect. Didn't have to wait too long having no reservation. Excellent menu choices; food was served quickly and hot. The dining room is very small and noisy and the entrance is narrow; the bar is the waiting area, but with no seats available we were constantly in someone's way. Overall a good experience.
