Great pizzas and pastas and larger servings than you would expect for the large plates. Also, their cocktail list is excellent - inventive and fresh.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe fried artichokes are goodThe fried artichokes are good but the Burrata was stunning. I had the Cacio e pepe which was wonderful as was the Bucatini Amatriciana and the carbonara. The stand out was the veal chop. Unfortunately the dud was the Gnocchi alla Romana. They were dry with a tiny bit of sauce that was not able to compensate.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful dinner.We had a wonderful dinner. The four of us shared all our plates so we had a wide range of dishes, Osso Bucco, fish, salads, pasta, pizza, appetizers, and dessert (a gold star for the tiramissu). Good wine selection and fantastic specialty cocktails. Outstanding service. Our waiter was excellent and helpful, and every staff member that came to the table, to deliver food or drink was outstanding. Some of the best service we've had in Seattle. Great time on a rainy Seattle night, wait, what other kind of night is there?4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good and gernerous. ExcelFood was good and gernerous.

Will be back again soon!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful diningWe had a wonderful dining experience at Rione XIII. Every morsel of food and drop of wine that passed our lips was pleasurable, our servers were exceptional, and we were seated on time for our reservation. It was the perfect place to celebrate our special occasion.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian GemRione XIII does a fantastic job of showcasing a specific style of Italian cooking. The dishes I had there with my fiancee were all cooked fantastically. The house mozzarella plate was absolutely amazing. While the prices for certain items may catch some people by surprise, the quality and quantity of the food are absolutely worth it.
Our server was well informed on the food and wine and was quick to answer any questions we had. The food came out at a reasonable pace so we were able to enjoy each course without feeling rushed nor wondering when the next plate was going to arrive.
The decor has a very rustic feel to it with dark wood and low light making it great for couples or small groups.
Rione XIII gets an A rating from me.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first time experience wasMy first time experience was excellent! We showed up and a there was a two top finishing at one of tables that was going to be used to accommodate our party, however they ended up extending that date for awhile. The staff was extremely apologetic for our wait, which we were fine with. In the end they comped us appetizers & discounted our bill, which we didn't ask for nor expected! It was a nice surprise on top of the phenomenal service the food was delicious! I will definitely be returning for the steak one my friends had, I tried it and the flavors were to die for! They were also accommodating with my dietary restrictions which is always a bonus. Thank you for a wonderful first time experience! It will definitely not be my last!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic happy hour choicesFantastic happy hour choices - house made fresh mozzarella to die for. Be sure to ask your server about the pizza of the day. So good! Definitely try the saltimbocca. Lovely not-too-sweet tiramisu. Great server who was very knowledgable and was able to help us pick the perfect wine. Definitely will be back.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMCame here with the familyCame here with the family including three kids and found excellent service and food. We had many apps, a couple of pastas/pizzas and entrees. The preparations are simple and yet very decadent. The stuffed veal chop was perfectly cooked and wrapped in prosciutto and figs. The pastas were very flavorful and had the right amount of sauce and chew. Some good inexpensive wine choices round it out nicely.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of six celebratingWe were a group of six celebrating a birthday.
