This restaurant has a definite Wow factor, and everyone who works there goes out of their way to make sure that the customer is happy. The food is plentiful and good, and the presentation is a lot of fun. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. This is not a place for a quick bite, but it is the place to go for a treat. But make sure you're hungry when you go.

Wonderful, fun, relaxing adventure.
We've been there twice now and there was very little repetition from our first experience. The food is amazing! I'm not generally a big mussel fan but I could have eaten a bucket of the mussels. The sauces are superb. Eggplant parmesan outstanding. There are no menus which adds to the adventure as you don't know what you are getting and are not always sure what you just ate! (You can always ask -- after you try it!) It's a nice change of pace to walk in, sit down and be served without having to make any menu decisions. Some food feeds the body. Some food feeds the soul. Pasta Freska definitely falls into the latter category.

We had a Livingsocial coupon
We had a Livingsocial coupon for a 7 course dinner for two and it was a great deal! We were in for a pleasant surprise! It was cozy and the energy was vibrant. The courses came in random order except for dessert at the end and the al a cartes were all off the hook and were as spontaneous as the chef himself. We had great interaction with the staff and really look forward to returning when we go to Seattle again!

I love the concept of this
I love the concept of this restaurant. There is no menu. The chef comes out to your table and chats with you about what you do and do not like. Then you are served some amazing food. :-)

The food was excellent and the service was even better. I enjoyed eating and not knowing what was coming next. Thankyoufor a very lovely evening we will surely come back and recommend it to our friends. 17 years in service lets make it 17 more !!!!
Oh and by far the best Italian food in the Seattle area.

Love this place and Chef Mike
Love this place and Chef Mike Horri's attention to his guests.
I've been a dozen or so times, usually with out of town business guests, and it never fails to be a hit. it's relaxed without being noisy, it's sophisticated (with it's 'no menu' style) without being snobby. On every visit, everyone has enjoyed themselves.
If you're looking for upscale, trendy, this isn't the place. But if you want a quality meal, an interesting dining experience, and careful attention, definitely give this place a try.

The setting is very dimly
The setting is very dimly lit with candles on each table, so it seemed casual/romantic. The service was good: the chef would go around asking everyone at each table if they didn't eat anything, controlled amounts of food came around every so often so everyone would mostly be eating the same menu unless preferred otherwise, and plates were changed after every two or three courses. The food was delicious, the mussels had a delicious accompanying sauce, the serving of salmon was well-cooked. The dessert was not so pleasant as it was a plate of a variety of cakes that were very heavy with flavor and sugar and didn't go well together, let alone with the rum-infused ice cream on the side. The salad, spaghetti, and steak were not so memorable.

A refreshing approach to dining! They use the use of freshest simple ingredients and bring them together in culinary, non-pretentious perfection.

I enjoy Pasta Freska very much. It's always an experience dining there. The sauce was a bit to spicy for my 10 year old granddaughter so she didn't care for her dinner much, which was really disappointing. They may want to consider children a bit more when it comes to option of spiciness. Last time a different granddaughter LOVED everything about her meal. I guess that's the danger of a unique place that has no menu. I enjoyed my dinner very much and the owner made sure my vegan diet was honored.

What a fun idea--to be served small bites of many delicious foods, that were created by the chef and prepared from what is fresh that day. The meal addressed our hunger and our sense of adventure, and we thought the price was reasonable for such a creative and varied meal.

It was so much fun to sit
It was so much fun to sit and just be served, one fantastic course after another. The chef had an uncanny ability to select the perfect food and wine, and overall, it was a wonderful experience. I can't wait to go back, and my sister definitely enjoyed her birthday surprise!

It was a fun experience, very quick to serve you, did not get anything we would not eat. Eating out side on a nice day was fun as always in Seattle. Good wine. Overall good experience. Will probably try again. Not my style of an every week type of place but fun to try.

Made to order Italian cusine!
Pasta Freska offers a unique dining experience serving up fine Italian cuisine, made to order. The owner greets you and asks if there is anything you don't like. Soon, dishes just start appearing, and they are all delicious. You aren't quite sure what is coming next, but by the third or fourth course, you realize this is not a run of the mill restaurant. Eight courses later....dessert.......We are going back as soon as we can!

Not your typical dinner out but great fun! Every bite was delicious

The restaurant is very unique in that there is no menu to chose from. Instead, the owner comes to your table, greets you and asks if there is anything that you do not like. Once he knows your preference he prepares a special meal for you. We received 8 different dishes ranging from salad, pastas, proteins, etc. The food was obviously fresh and home made and was delicious. The reason I say the meal was almost perfect was because the desserts were terrible. You have a fantastic meal all prepared with fresh, delicious ingredients and then the desserts come and are obviously store bought. It was very anticlimactic. I would highly recommend the restaurant for a unique and tasty experience but plan on going somewhere else for dessert.

Nice little spot, food was amazing. I like the concept of eating whatever the chef is proudest of that night, and he did not disappoint. We were asked if we had any allergies or things we don't like (dangerous question), and then dinner was a surprise. Thank you for masala sans fungi! It was unclear as far as how much the food/wine cost, so the check was a surprise, though definitely reasonable.
