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

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.
I had eaten at Il Terrazzo Carmine for a business lunch and had wanted to go for my birthday with family and friends. The restaurant has a really nice vibe with some noise but, low enough to be able to carry on a conversation. I am a picky Italian cook who is often disappointed with food at Italian restaurants in Seattle. We had a lovely evening, wonderful food and exceptional service by our server, Ryan.
My friend and I have been here twice while enjoying girls weekends. It’s great!! The bar on the way in is great too. We will back for sure.
A large party was seated in the center of main dining room and was so loud it felt more like a sports bar than a fine dining establishment. The food and service were wonderful as usual but the decision to seat this boisterous party and to not ask them to be more discrete were unfortunate.
Never had a bad meal here and the service is amazing.
We had a great time! Our food was awesome. I had the pork chop and it was the best. Our server and the staff there really made my girlfriend feel special for her birthday!
We've been here a number of times over the years, but it had been several years since our last visit. We were delighted that the quality of the food has only increased with time. The risotto was expertly crafted, and the duck and veal scallopine were phenomenal. Service was perfect and on point. A lovely evening out!
No tables were available after 5:15 and before 8:45 when making the reservation so we picked 5:15. The place was empty until 6:00 when it became about half full.
Excellent for a romantic dinner. Delicious food well prepared and presented. Attentive and knowledgeable staff.
Excellent Italian food. The veal chop was juicy and delicious and the stuffed cannelloni superb.
Everything about the restaurant was terrific, except you had to enter an office building and go to the back. We had to call to find out where to enter the restaurant. Also, the OpenTable app, when I clicked on get directions, it took me to someplace in Bellevue, WA and not Seattle. I knew that was wrong and just put the address into my phone to find the actual location.
Always a treat and a special occasion! Thanks for the wonderful birthday dinner!
Fantastic experience. Food was wonderful and the service the best I’ve had in Seattle.
Fabulous food. Impeccable service.
Food is always amazing at Il Terrazzo! Plus, they have a great selection for wines. It's a great restaurant for a business lunch or a romantic dinner.
Exceptional food, service and ambiance! There is no better restaurant in the city!
Very high quality restaurant with great service. Would recommend to almost anyone who loves Italian.
I’ve been coming to Il Terrazzo Carmine since Carmine opened in the early 80’s. The experience has always been first rate and that standard continues after Carmine’s passing.
Often grab a quick bite at Carmine's prior to the Sounders match. Very convenient. The food is always great - great quality and selection. The staff is very accommodating and will go out of their way to ensure you have an enjoyable evening.
Great place for fabulous food and good wine. Dietary concerns are graciously accommodated by a knowledgeable staff and kitchen.
Delicious food and great service. One server even got down on the floor to even out a table leg on a customer’s wobbly table!
