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

We visited this restaurant on a date night while away and loved it! I had a delicious bolognese with rigatoni and amazing Caesar salad. The other food was also amazing and service fantastic. Looking forward to visiting again when we’re back in town. Highly recommend.
it was a beautiful evening. The ambiance, decor, servie and food was five star!
For years, our favorite Italian dining experience in Seattle. Excellent menu choices, knowledgable wait staff, and well chosen wine selections.
Charming Italian restaurant with delicious food, attentive service, and lovely ambiance.
We had a very nice birthday celebration in the lounge at Il Terrazzo Carmine.
Dinner with a friend
Always the right choice!
My experience at Carmine’s in Seattle was an absolute superb dining experience. I believe that part of an experience being great at a restaurant is the food but more than half is the service and we had excellent service and food which made my time there a 10!
We had a really nice meal and our waiter was fantastic. The Cannelloni and the Cheesecake were amazing. Can’t wait to go back.
Our waiter, Joe, was outstanding. Food was excellent.
Absolutely wonderful... service, food, atmosphere.. the wine selection could use some with lower prices..
Year in year out...Carmine's is the standard by which I measure any other restaurant. Over the last 30+ years I imagine I've eaten there 300 or more times...never a complaint about food or service. The quality in every department is stellar. Although Carmine himself is gone, his spirit and high standards are still there. Young hipster and hot-shot chefs and restaurant owners, here's a message: Have dinner at Carmine's and see how it should be done.
Il terrazzo Carmine never disappoints. The service is impeccable, food delicious and they cater to everyone’s special preferences. You will never be disappointed as there is never a bad day. It’s always and forever will be a favorite
The food and atmosphere was as exceptional as always. However, our server really made the meal a delight. He had the timing perfect and made wonderful recommendations on what to eat and how to pair it with great wine.
Favorite restaurant- never disappointed
Wonderful environment, exceptional service and simply delicious food. Fantastic choice for any meal.
Food was amazing, loved the bread too.
Service was perfect❤️ Definitely would go back.
This is one of our favorite date night places! The vibe is very old-school “New York.” The service is super professional and the food is simply outstanding. We will keep coming back!
Great food and great service for a reasonable price
Just a classic Italian restaurant. A more modern decor with touches of old Italy everywhere. The food was exceptional especially the Linguine ala Vongole! Service was very attendance and professional with out being intrusive. Pass of service was perfect! Just loved the place and will go back again!
Always an excellent dining experience. Service is superb. Food is always solid.
We go every anniversary and it never disappoints. Art work is awful.
Food was quite good and the wine list is solid. Prices are a bit expensive for entrees and the servers are old and a bit curmudgeonly.
Il Terrazzo Carmine has long been a favorite of mine. Whether its a special occasion or a quick bite in the bar prior to a Sounders match or Mariners game, they never disappoint.
Great food - excellent service.
We had a wonderful 18th birthday celebration with our daughter and friends. Il Terrazzo Carmine has a very special meaning to us, as this is where we named our daughter 18 years ago! Thank you!!!
This is my favorite restaurant in Seattle. Always good. Always Fresh. Professional Service.
We usually ask to be seated in the bar because the main dining room can get very loud
Overall a terrific experience with great service that is attentive, but not overly so. I went for lunch, and the food was consistently great from champagne cocktail through desert. The ambiance is warm, which is the perfect respite from the a grey Seattle day. Will definitely return.
Maybe the best place to eat in Seattle. I will go back
The food is decent, but does not reach up to the upper echelon quality one would expect for the price one pays. If the price came down a few dollars it would be right on target, but the current price point is a little too high.
Superb dining experience as usual! Excellent menu options as well as flexible chefs when needing personalized choices. Exceptional, attentive staff!
I was looking for an upscale Italian restaurant for a Valentine's Day/anniversary dinner with my wife and found it at Il Terrazzo Carmine! Overall the food was well presented, of high quality and the wine list was HUGE! I've never seen so many different Italian wines offered anywhere.
Service was spot on, the noise level was just right for a nice conversation, the restaurant was nicely laid out and they even remembered that it was also our anniversary (multiple times too)...that shows me they go the extra mile to make their customers remember the experience.
We split a salad, then had small portions of ravioli (crab/lobster for my wife and venison for me) which were excellent. After that, we split a serving of Profiteroles which was just the right amount. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner that night!
Excellent special event restaurant--it is our Valentine's favorite location, especially if you like a giant veal chop or wonderful rack of lamb. Appetizer's also are excellent. Service is amazing. We keep going back.
Always a pleasure to have them host us!
Unbelievable lunch at Il Terrazzo Carmine. We had the best chicken entrée there.
The medium rare steak was over cooked. Disappointing. Especially for such a high-end entrée. The anti-pasta plate was outstanding.We passed on dessert. The shoestring french fries arrived cold I had to be re-ordered.
We had a wonderful lunch with salmon and amazing black cod. And great Risotto as starch course. The carpaccio was also excellent. Attentive and professional service. One of the best restaurants in Seattle!
The place is very romantic. The food is amazing. The price is great. I and my friends had a fantastic night.
Alicia made sure our table was absolutely perfect! The service was superb and as always the food was very well done.
Loved the evening. Delicious food with excellent service and peaceful. We can always count on It Terrazzo Carmine to be great!
Nice ambiance. Good for a special occasion or business dinner. On the pricey side and my double cut pork chop was tough.
