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

Hosted two friends for their birthdays. Had outstanding service and superb food.
The birthday celebrants were treated to a special dessert. All together a wonderful evening.

Service and Food were awesome! Babysitter canceled last minute so me and my wife had a +1. Our waiter recommended a great cauliflower soup that my son loved. Our food was out of this world good. Waiter was very attentive constantly insuring everything was to our liking. Will definitely be coming back.

small table and small chairs (and both I am my guest are of average height and size) and possibly too close to other tables and the wall.

Best Italian restaurant in Seattle, hands down! We love coming here and every dish we've ever ordered is phenomenal! Ryan has been our server the last two times and he is a gem, request him! The cauliflower soup is to die for and you can't go wrong with any of the pasta dishes or daily specials. Their wine list by the glass is short, so order a bottle!

Nothing to rave about. Disappointing experience. Food lacked taste and my duck was overdone.

Il Terrazzo continues, after several decades, to be consistent, delicious, and elegant ... without being pretentious. The pasta, the specials, the veal ... all beautifully presented and delicious. My only "complaint"? Don't go starving. The portions aren't meant for growing boys!
