Best Alfredo I've ever had!
We went there on a Friday night for dinner, sat outside... this place is small but very charming. Sitting outside we saw part of the ghost tour walk by, and various people... you sit kind of close to the next table, but we enjoyed talking to the older couple next to us. Their Alfredo was one of the best I think I've ever had! I'd eat here again any day!

We ate outside on a week night
We ate outside on a week night that was in the 75-80 range, shocking for Seattle!! The service was fantastic, the guys that all waited on us were helpful with suggestions but didn't hover. The garlic bread (not on the menu, just ask about some) was outa this world!! Spaghetti with huge well seasoned meatballs and the pizzas are really unique too. The pasta dishes, mine was with pancetta, asparagus, mushrooms and a wonderful cream sauce was a nice treat with really fresh ingredients.

I love this place. Friendly service and wonderful fresh Italian
food. The bruschetta is a must. Also the risotto. We have been here before and will

A cafe, with amazing Italian food.
An Italian cafe, not your basic neighborhood Italian restaurant with a basic pizza, spaghetti and lasagna menu, but a very casual cafe, where the waiters might wear cargo shorts, as will I. The food, and value are high-end exceptional however. We have been there several times and enjoyed items such as lamb and eggplant ragu over polenta, a mushroom rissota with chicken, and one of the best carbonaras I've ever had. These things and many others, all at very low prices, populate a menu that does include several more standard Italian items, all prepared with special touches of their own. House wine served water glasses has always been very good.
We live in Issaquah and drive in often to eat here. Great food at GREAT prices.

Great Grunge Dining in Pioneer Sqr
A little scary looking like most folks in the neighborhood for this californian, but the food was way above average, better pasta than this local from San Francisco bay. Plastic seats, super limited wine list, BUT, the food was legit Italian gourmet, pasta sublime, meatballs right on target, sauces were totally Italian from Italy--in contrast to the freaky looking outdoors and cheap plastic seats. For Pioneer Square---definitely go--and ask for the waiter's help--as he was hugely helpful in guiding us through best sellers and what they did best.
