Il Terrazzo Carmine, owned and operated by Carmine Smeraldo, is one of Seattle's true dining anomalies - a highly successful restaurant with unfailingly high standards and a loyal, sophisticated clientele. The cuisine has been acclaimed as Seattle's best by the media and more importantly, by local diners.
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

    Great lunch menu with tasty food. The tables were too close together near the bar when the restaurant was fairly empty. It was hard to have a conversation with the next table all talking at the same time. I wish they would seat people further apart when the space is clearly available.

    This restaurant is very close to my work. I have been there for several business lunches over the years and for dinner on one occasion. The food quality is very good, and service is exceptional. Very close to a restaurant with no chance of poor service or food. I always enjoy Carmine's.

    Food was wonderful but waiter was making us anxious. He was not letting us think when deciding what we wanted. Felt rushed.

    Last night was another wonderful delicious experience at this beautiful restaurant. It was a last-minute birthday dinner for myself with my partner, and from the moment we stepped in it was a very pleasant experience. The host was really nice. Our waiters were very attentive, very detailed and I am ecstatic to confirm that the recommendations And descriptions used for the dishes were to My experienced pallete right on point. I ordered the veal-sobocco? (it truly did fall off the bone. It included a bone marrow seasoning. The sauce that it came lathered in was rich and it was served with a delicate, seasoned fettuccine that did not overpower, but simply complement the veal)And a side of the risotto of the day ( saffron, asparagus, pesto) and a beautiful local red Cabernet. For my birthday they blessed us with a tiramisu and cheesecake. Thank you for the wonderful evening and I recommend this soft lit romantic restaurant to everyone u come across. Thank you for another wonderful dinner.
