"Cuoco" is the Italian word for "cook," and the inspiration for showing off our chefs in an open kitchen. The pasta work station is framed in crisp white tile and surrounded by warm gold and red walls. In addition to the featured fresh pastas, there are savory vegetables and other hearty entrees, created by our chef Matt Fortner. Semi private and private dining options are available to accommodate 12-24 guests.

Food was very good. The restaurant was busy on Valentine's Day, so there were LONG waits between courses. I understand the rationale for the 20% universal service charge, but it was not earned this night.

Very disappointed that when I made the reservation I informed them that we were coming to celebrate my partner’s birthday. There was no acknowledgement by anyone of the occasion the entire evening. We did have a lovely evening with great food, service and drink. But I expect a bit more from a restaurant at this level. If you aren’t going to recognize a special occasion, don’t ask me if that is the reason for my visit. Huge miss and I will think twice about coming back for any occasion. There are so many other amazing Italian restaurants in the area. Disappointed.

Cuoco has a gluten free pasta option and I enjoyed the gf pasta with almond tomato pesto. The mixed green salad had a nice variety of lettuces but I thought the dressing had too much pepper and would have preferred adding pepper to taste. The octopus appetizer was delicious. Service is friendly and professional.

One of my favorite restaurants in all of Seattle.

Thought that the pear/endive salad with salmon was delicious.
I think my companions enjoyed their rigatoni, but wished for larger portions.

Would definitely return next time I am in Seattle.

Cuoco is one of the most underrated restaurants in Seattle. The handmade pasta is exquisite and the service is top notch. Jenni always takes amazing care of us and I try to find excuses to go back whenever possible. 5 stars!

The food is excellent and the atmosphere and lighting are good. I just don't like the automatic tip of 20% so I probably will try other restaurants before I go back here.

It was a perfect evening. The food, the ambience, the staff made for a perfect meal. My basil gimlet was perfection! Go now!

Fantastic. Quite possibly the best lasagne I’ve ever had in the U.S. great food, drinks and atmosphere.

This was our third time at Cuoco for dinner. It has a warm and cozy atmosphere that allows you to have conversation over your meal. The food is very good with seasonal changes throughout the year. Their lasagna is one of my friend's favorites. I had the grilled octopus and the marinated kale, both were delicious. It is a nice spot for dinner out with friends with a great atmosphere and divers menu.
