We were here for a business dinner. Exceptional food, great wine selection and incredible service. Couldn't ask for a better experience. It's not an everyday restaurant but for a special occasion this is the place to go.

This is our favorite special occasion restaurant. We visited just a few weeks ago and I gave it a top rating. On our most recent visit it was even better, so I need to expand the rating scale upwards. The food is always wonderful. My partner and I usually struggle to figure out what to order because there are so... More

If you enjoy great Italian food and a quiet, romantic atmosphere, this may become one of your favorites. We were visiting family last week, and were fortunate to snare a reservation on short notice. (You will DEFINITELY want a reservation, the place was packed on a Tuesday evening.) For details on the menu, check out their excellent web site. The... More

Our party of four went on a Wednesday night with a 6:30 reservation and was seated immediately in a less than half-filled restaurant. We started with the antipasto. While our waiter suggested the larger of the two dish sizes, the small and limited portions of meat and veggies were better suited for two. What I did taste was good. I... More

A lovely and romantic Italian bistro. Even though it was a busy night, I never felt rushed. The Lamb chops were perfect and plentiful as was the filet mignon. They also had a nice wine selection and many by the glass. They had an Italian rainbow cake/cookie that was totally amazing with the extra touch of Love scribed on the... More

This restaurant lets you be a leisurely diner. Our service was steady and yet we were able to dawdle through our meal. The food, as usual, was wonderful. We highly recommend the salmon, salads, and any pasta offering.

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.

Thank Edmund1020
