Walking along James Street, noticed a line up of people waiting to get into Il Corvo...crossed the street and joined the line...best decision I made today! I had the Rigatoni and it was excellent, as was the caramel-filled shortbread cookie! In fact, was so good...More

You will not find a better place to get pasta anywhere. This is one of my top 10 favorite restaurants. If I lived in Seattle and worked downtown, I'd go here multiple times a week. I'd have to eat lunch either really early or really...More

Great place only serving lunch. Three different pasta courses to an affordable price. Also try the side dishes since they're also good. Great place for a very very good pasta lunch.

While on vacation, friends brought us to this restaurant. One of the members of our party actually works there part time. I found it kind of confusing and crowded. I don't like feeling hemmed in. You wait in line to place your order. Your choices...More

We went here on the recommendation of our waiter at a rather more expensive restaurant when we asked for a lunch place that was simple and inexpensive. It certainly fit that bill. There are no reservations so you must queue, which extended about 30 yards...More
