Il Terrazzo Carmine
Il Terrazzo Carmine is located in historic Pioneer Square - nestled in an urban-renewed alley with entrances through the vintage lobby on First Avenue or through the delightful courtyard in the back. Since 1984, Carmine Smeraldo's classic Italian restaurant has been where the locals have chosen to return over and over again. From the Carpaccio Di Bue and Spaghettini Dell 'Ortolano for lunch to the Suprema Di Pollo Farcita and Zuppa Di Pesce for dinner you will know you have gone to a place where excellence is a way of life. Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Seattle, Il Terrazzo serves classical Italian cuisine with an atmosphere you may want to call home and never leave

Very knowledgeable server, polite staff, great ambiance and excellent food for a fair price. A gem for Italian food in Seattle.
Kenneth is the best.
Everything about this restaurant is perfect from the minute you walk in the door to the server and......the food is delicious! They are always accommodating and happy to help with selections
PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!
Fabulous as usual!!!
I have been a fan of Carmine's for 32 years...no other restaurant in Seattle puts all the elements together so well: Food, ambiance, service. Even a casual lunch becomes a special occasion and dinner is always a great event...the servers just seem to know how to pace the courses, and when you need them for something. When Carmine himself passed away a few years ago, I was worried that this great restaurant might slip, but it has not...I would say the standards now are as high as when Carmine himself was running the show, which he did with a great combination of steel and velvet! If he came back today, he would be proud of his family and how they have maintained his high standards. Carmine's forever!
Never disappoints! One of the few restaurants where one feels special while dining out.
This restaurant was absolutely fantastic!!!! Mido was a phenomenal waiter. I will definitely visit this place again.
Excellent as always. The best Italian food in Seattle.
Such a wonderful experience, I would highly recommend.
Lovely evening, great food! We had 4 in our party and everyone loved their meal. I had my favorite clams linguine and it was the best I’ve ever had, including in Italy. The service was amazing, our waiter was always there at the right time and with the right attention. The wine list was a little overwhelming and very overpriced, but we still enjoyed a lovely bottle that was 3x’s the price of buying it directly. Most of the wine averaged $100 a bottle. Would highly recommend if you are staying on Pioneer Square, easy walk from the Courtyard Marriott.
Wonderful! Love the service, ambiance and fabulous food! Even accommodated requests that were not in the menu.
Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent food and excellent service.
Third time having dinner here. Food is good as is the ambiance.
The food is genuinely good. The sweetbreads are great. The ambience is great.
One of the most consistent restaurants with regard to kitchen performance, staff professionalism, and overall high level of service.
Great place for a business lunch, well prepared food, reasonable pricing for seasonal or market rate specials. Wine list is great as well.
Outstanding food and outstanding service from our waiter-best veal I have ever had !!!
A great dining experience start to finish. Excellent food and service.
We had a very enjoyable dinner and our waiter was THE BEST. I can't remember his name but he was born in France.
Went here ahead of Seahawks and Packers football game for lunch then over to the stadium. Great ambience, bar area and highly attentive service. Solid Italian food choices which were tasty and satisfying. We had several appetizers along with wine and main courses which were excellent. Dessert selection was also nice with both Italian and non-Italian style. Highly recommend this for any business meal and would be good to go back for an evening dinner with my wife...
I have never had anything but the most delicious food and fabulous service. It’s spendy, but we’ll worth it. Love this restaurant!
Slow service and over priced wine list
Awesome experience, great atmosphere and generous food portions. Food is really amazing too and wonderful service.
Great food, great service! Everyone was very nice and accommodating and the food was reasonably priced! We had a great time!
Always a favorite. My favorite restaurant in Seattle.
what an absolute pleasure .The food and service is beyond what one will find anywhere in Seattle.
We enjoyed our waiter and the unobtrusive manner of serving he delivered .
Il Terazzo did not disappoint! I have not benn here for awhile and thoroughly enjoyed everything. I will be back soon than later.
Great pasta and salads for lunch, but the Red Velvet cake yesterday was a bit of a disappointment. Not their usual high quality. Not sure what happened, but it seemed to be refrigerated for some time and was a bit under cooked. I'm sure that will not happen again.
Still one of the best Seattle restaurants - never disappointed
We went to celebrate our 25th anniversary . Our time in the bar before dinner was spectacular . The bartender was wonderful and the drinks were great . Our table was not what I expected for anniversary celebration. It was right on top of another table right by the door and it was very noisy . I expected something a little better for this special anniversary . Our food was also delayed for some reason . Everyone apologized and the food was very delicious , but I wouldn’t go back for such a special occasion.
Went for our Anniversary they made it extra special.
Would be Great for any occasion.
Absolutely delicious Italian food. Also, I ordered the halibut and I’ve never had a halibut cooked so perfectly! Highly recommend this place and will definitely be going back.
Some of the best food anywhere. Innovative menu, great service, and fabulous place to have dinner with friends.
We dined here at the recommendation of our hotel bartender. It was definitely a great choice. One of the specials was a filet with a mushroom sauce and asparagus risotto - to die for!! The service was awesome and the food superbly delicious. A memorable experience for sure.
Everything about this restaurant was excellent. The food, the service and the decor was first class. We had a memorable dinner.
Very, very best. Our dinners were excellent. We were so satisfied that we took a duplicate order to reheat for leftovers. Compliments to your Chef and your entire kitchen staff.
Il Terrazzo is always wonderful - food, service and ambiance - we always love it and come back. Thanks for being a consistent and lovely restaurant.
This is our go to restaurant for special occasion's -
The food and service are both always exceptional!
Delicious food, good service and not overly crowded on a Saturday night.
