Corretto serves Italian cuisine, as well as coffee, tea and cocktails. The dining area is rustically decorated with vintage elements throughout. Outdoor seating provides scenic views and a cool breeze. The intimate lighting makes Corretto a suitable spot for a romantic date. The full bar serves not only cocktails but also wine, beer and other spirits. Corretto's menu features Italian classics. Start with antipasti such as bruschetta caprese, risotto croquette or fresh baked ciabatta. Then dive in to a hearty plate of pasta, like the fettuccine alla carbonara or housemade ricotta gnocchi. For dessert, indulge in cannoli, the tiramisu or limoncello cheesecake.
There are a lot of options of things to eat at Corretto, and in my experience, everything tastes delicious! The small plates are fun to share. They even have half price wine on Wednesday nights.
I had a great experience at Corretto. Their prices are very reasonable, and the portions are perfect so you don't leave hungry or with leftovers that will spoil in the fridge. I like the casual atmosphere - this place is not stuffy or pretentious at all. The servers are very attentive and friendly. I tried the gnocchi with pesto and it was fantastic.
What a treat! The appetizers were fantastic... the mussel/clams steamers were by far my favorite but the entire dining experience was fun. Cocktails served in vintage glass wear, chapters salad was very fresh and our entrees, their Bolognese and the seafood linguine were terrific. Would head back there in a flash. Small tables, intimate atmosphere. GO!!
Coretto's has a decent menu with a variety of food options, excellent cocktails, and a nice atmosphere. The food portions were great, even though there aren't enough vegetarian or vegan options on the menu. I made do by ordering a salad - no cheese - and a side of grilled vegetables. I'd go back for a cocktail, and to share the rest of the delicious-sounding menu with others.
The food here is always spot on fantastic. The service is great, what's not to like? A good wine list to top it off and you're set.
Awesome place for Italian food! Can't wait to come back and try other dishes. So good!!
Corretto is one of the few restaurants we have visited that we have not been dissapointed in a single dish that was provided. The gnocchi is amazing and the hanger steak was perfectly done. The steamed muscles was a bit on the citrus side, just a personal taste, but I appreciated that it was different then the standard butter soaked fair.
We have gone back for happy hour, provided on both Monday and Tuesday night, and look forward to visiting on a regular basis up on the hill.
Visited during Dine Around Seattle. The good dishes (steamed clams & mussels, hanger steak, lamb chops) were very good. There were some misses too, especially in the Italian dishes, which was surprising for a mainly Italian menu. Specifically, the gnocchi were mushy and drowning in sauce. Skip the cannoli as the shells were greasy and so strong you couldn't taste the filling. We waited a long time between courses. Our waitress didn't understand a Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine.
We really enjoyed our meals at this wonderful and friendly neighborhood spot. The ambiance is fun and lively, the wait staff are very friendly and helpful, and the food is good quality and prepared very well. Go!
Our server was lovely. Very personable. By far the best part of the meal. The food was bland and the sauce watery. Even excessive cheese and salt didn't help the alfredo sauce. I know restaurants on the Hill tend to be more expensive, but the portion sizes weren't very generous. It was our first dining experience there and I don't foresee there being another.
We have dined twice, nearly a year apart. Food and service were terrific. Ambience was like that of a trattoria in Rome. Affordable. Parking can an issue.
The service and food were amazing. We started with the Bruschetta and Polpette di Carne which were both delicious. The meatballs were tender and all the sauce was quickly sopped up by the remaining bread - the bruschetta was equally flavorful and bursting with basil and sweet tomatoes. Definitely more than enough for two people to share. The inslalata mista were the next course which were surprising different from any mista I've had before. Pickled mustard seeds and onions added a new complexity to a usually mundane salad. For main courses, I had the seafood pasta which was chock full of clams, muscles and shrimp. I chose the red sauce which was hearty and delicious. My companion had the Fettuccine Carbonara which was good but could do without the addition onions. They were a little too pronounced in what would have been an excellent carbonara. The cocktails were also surprisingly well crafted. We both had the 15,000 Lira Manhattan which was definitely one of the best I've ever had.
Both our server and host was very attentive and friendly. Our only negative was the noise level, which was so intrusive that we struggled to hear what our waiter, or each other, was saying. If Corretto looks into some noise dampening features this would be both a delicious and pleasant dining destination. Still - we will be back!
Meat ball and mussel for appetizer was great, then 45 min later a different waiter who was blond with a bigger body habitus worked Wednesday night around 8-9pm, came asked if we want desert. We said our entree haven't arrive, it has been 45 minutes , then she said she is not our waiter and told us to calm down and she went to check, wasn't sound nice the way she talked, "calm down"? We were just telling you the situation since you the one came to our table asked us question. She came out 15 min later saying they are cooking it, that mean they are very slow with serving, giving excuse they were busy when some table were open. She brought three dishes out and put one in front of me, I asked if it was stead, she replied loudly no I only have two hands to carry three out. To me it was my first time there so I don't know what my dish look like, and she hasn't listen carefully my question and that her response, which wasn't professional and then if so if it wasnt stead why she placed in front of me. Anyway, food came out wasn't as good plus how she all suddenly show up ruin my mood for dinner.
Great food and service but the restaurant needs to reduce the loudness in the room by adding fabric, carpet and upholstery.
The servers are very friendly, the food is good, and the atmosphere is very nice and laid back. I was very glad to find this place!
The food was very good, and the wine was quite nice as well. It was a Saturday night birthday dinner with 7 of us, and everyone had a nice time. They brought a tiramisu with a candle for the birthday girl, which was very nice, but the dessert menu overall is a bit lean. Otherwise, the food was great and the space was quite nice.
Food and service was excellent, especially the homemade pasta. A bit on the noisy side.
Great experience. Service was attentive and friendly. Drinks were very good, asked for a dealers choice and the bartender came over to ask what I as looking for. A violin player was there giving a nice ambiance. Food was good, got the butternut squash ravioli. It was a little dry but still ok. Also they brought out a free desert for the birthday we were celebrating.
This place is awesome. The food is good and the service was better. Really enjoyed myself.
The food is basic Americanized Italian -- not terrible but not very exciting.
We enjoyed our dinner because the service was great, prices reasonable, and the food was really good with generous portions! It was recommended to us by friends and we are glad that we tried it.
We loved the house made bread, and even better, it was complimentary! The paid fare was also quite splendid, well done.
This restaurant is small, with a store front setting, very casual. The menu is small, but everything we got was well-prepared. My pasta was spicy and delicious. The meat and cheese platter is excellent. My husband ate every bite of his pasta--a very generous serving. The cocktails were interesting and well-made. The service was friendly and just attentive enough. The restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived at 6:30. By the time we left, it was almost full. My gut tells me they get a later crowd. I would definitely go back to eat here.
Awesome waiter jason.
Wanted to visit / support a new neighbourhood restaurant. Heard they make all their own pasta. With only 2 Washington wines on the menu they charge $20 corkage fee which we appreciated. We are happy to hear they are going to add a lot more local beers, liquors and wines. That's a plus! Staff was nice. Appetizers were good. The pasta carbonarra dish was terrible. Nothing like you get in Italy ... this was dry with an egg on top. Dining room loud and bright. They need to soften it up. Will think about visiting again in 6 months or so.
For the most part the food was good; the seafood pasta was loaded with fresh seafood and the drink specials were great. However, every single thing we ordered was completely overwhelmed with garlic. We are garlic lovers, in fact we pickle cloves and eat them whole. But there was such an excess of garlic in our food (from the oil to dip the bread in to the appetizers and each of our meals) that it LITERALLY irritated our tongues to where they felt like they were burnt on hot water. This lasted for a day or so. The chef absolutely needs to lay off the garlic and learn other spices.
The atmosphere is best described and generic trendy, nothing unique that you won't see at 100 city restaurants with loud music more suited for a dance club and generic decor. However, the service was great and there were some outstanding happy hour specials. If I wasn't afraid of another sulfur burn to the tongue, I'd go back. But with good seafood and service at so many other places nearby, I won't.
food was delish and happy hour was a good way to sample a few dishes. Only complaint was the pasta was served cold. It would have been delicious, hot. Great value though. Very friendly service.
Food and service were great, but club/house music in the background was not fitting for an Italian restaurant. They should wait until late night to try and force that vibe.
We loved Coretto - it was the first time. The pastas were outstanding, so were the vegetables, clams, etc. Everything was fresh and our waitress was wonderful. We were a table of 6 and everyone left happy.
I visited with my friend who I haven't seen for a while as it is nearby and seemed to be a reasonable spot in the neighborhood. The service was very personal and not pretentious, which is getting harder and harder to find here. Only if food was as good, I would come to this place a lot more frequently.
It is nice that they offer free bread, which was more than enough for two people, but it literally tasted like sliced baguette from QFC. Pasta was o.k., but I felt I could make at home something very similar. I ordered a glass of wine, which was neither good nor bad. The price is reasonable overall, and ambiance and location is pretty nice. But I would expect better pasta from Italian restaurant.
We went early before the opera so it was quiet when we arrived, but slowly the place began to fill. Service was personable, friendly and professional. Food was delicious. Gnocchi was especially memorable. We plan to go back to try more items.
Liked the ambiance of the restaurant, but the quality of the food was just ok.
Started with the meatballs and ceasar salad, both were delicious and would order again.
Next up was the spinach ravioli, a little over salted for us. Then the lasagna, the pasta was over cooked and very mushy.
Excellent food, outstanding service, great neighborhood.
We love the bistecca here! The staff is always freindly and eating at about 8pm was perfect in this hot weather spell -- the sun was over the buildings to the west so the restaurant was cool and shaded.
A great find for a Friday night date night. Cool menu (we tried a grappa espresso drink) with delicious food at every course. Steamed clam appetizer, fresh spinach ravioli and a great chicken dish. Loved the service and ambiance. We'll definitely go back.
Good italian food at a fair price on Capitol Hill's Broadway strip. Not fancy. We were there at the end of Pride weekend, so things were still very busy and this restaurant had clearly been busy but the wait staff were terrific- They were able to accommodate my picky teenager and our Vegan friend.
We came first when it was Pane Vino, and I must say, we are more impressed with Corretto! Your menu is solid and reliably prepared and presented at proper temps, your staff are warm and professional, and we always get great recommendations for fun after-dinner drinks.
My husband loves the bistecca, I usually get the pollo, and we share a salad, a bottle of vino blanco, and a bit of his steak for my chicken. And dessert? Oh, no, we never share that! I love the affogato and my husband his tiramisu.
Fino alla prossima volta!
Four of us went to dinner and everyone loved their meal. We ordered steak, risotto, lasagna for entrees and salad, meat balls for starters. All great. The place is cozy and a bit loud. However, it is full of positive energy. Lots of people seemed to be there for happy hour as well as dinner. The staff was very helpful and pleasant!
We went here on a Tuesday for the Seattle restaurant special (3 for $30). I started off with ravioli and then had lasagna. Both were outstanding. My wife and daughter said their meals were similarly excellent. We'll definitely think about coming here again if we're in the area. Service was a little slow at times (15+ minutes to get our after-dinner espressos?) but overall we really enjoyed this restaurant.
I went here for Restaurant Week a few days ago for dinner. My girlfriend and I got the salad / meatballs for starters, Hangar Steak and Lasagna for main course and the Tiramisu and Strawberry Rhubard tart for dessert. The worst dish was the hangar steak, and it was still even very good.
I thought the prices were super reasonable and that the atmosphere was great. They seemed a little understaffed for how busy the restaurant was because our food did take a little longer than expected to come out, but when it did finally arrive it was hot and delicious. We got the house red which was very tasty, but I was also interested in the Almond Liquor flights and cocktails. I will definitely be back for late night appetizers and drinks and potentially try their lunch menu again.
