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
Birthday celebration for a good friend, our server made it extra special!
Servers were great especially (Saucité) spelling. She was knowledgeable about the menu and told us the specials with enthusiasm. She was sweet and friendly. We had a great time and LOVED the food especially the tiramisu 😍😍 omggggg! It was so good!
Ty for an amazing experience
Everything was great. I love their food.
Our go-to place for special occasions (we weren't the only ones celebrating a birthday that night). The expansive menu features exquisitely prepared dishes. We look forward to returning.
Great experience overall.
Food was delicious.
We are food snobs especially for Italian so four stars is a high praise. I would return there.
I had the duck with risotto and was prepared as expected. Very tender. I personally would have liked it medium well not medium on the breast. Duck leg was well done and very tender.
Love the ambience.
One of the best Italian restaurants in the country. Food is exceptional. I felt safe with their COVID precautions.
We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary and the food, service and ambiance were excellent.
Best dinner experience that I’ve ever had. I don’t say that lightly. The food and the service was excellent.
Really enjoyed the food
Simply an outstanding dining experience. Superb food and ambiance.
We had a great meal at a private table. Service from Brian was excellent and food well prepared. Had the filet which is a delicious preparation and finished off with flourless chocolate tort.
Always a true pleasure!
Amazing dinner! Best halibut ever! Great service too!
A downtown Italian favorite!! Lovely ambiance!! Indoor and gorgeous outdoor dining space with fire pit and heat lamps to keep one cozy warm.
We have been dining here for several years and it is always so enjoyable. Delicious food, wine and exceptional service!!
Wonderful place to eat. My boyfriend and I were there for our 2 year anniversary. Would absolutely recommend.
One of the best restaurants in Seattle.
Food is delicious, but the service level is even better.
I highly the ravioli.
Our first time there. Great service. Sat outside on heated and beautifully decorated deck.
Very best service. Excellent cocktails and food. Enjoyed atmosphere as well
Its too bad the area this is in is a bit sketchy. Everything else was fantastic!
We always choose Carmine for special occasions. This time we got engaged! The service and food were great as always.
Five family members gathered at Carmine for a celebratory dinner. We dined at the heated outdoor pavilion, socially distancing from other diners. Despite the challenges of operating a restaurant in the era of COVID-19, the food and service quality at Carmine's was as excellent as ever. Terrazzo Carmine has been and remains the best restaurant in Seattle.
Server was great, food was amazing! Didn't have have the charcuterie anymore but the server recommended something instead and it was amazing!
The food was amazing and the service very attentive. Would definitely return again
Recommend the bar for quiet dining. The main dining room is too loud. Always appreciate the free garage/valet parking.
We ate her 4 weeks ago and were happy with the distance between diners. This time the dining room (we asked for but couldn't get outdoor table) was too crowded. We and our guests did not feel comfortable. So not a great experience. We would not come back unless we could be accommodated outside.
Great service, and great food!
Old school, and amazing hospitality!
Il Terrazzo Carmine has long been one of Seattle's best Italian restaurants, and it is a go-to spot (with Tulio) for a classically nice dinner. In these CoVid times, they have a nice heated outdoor patio that you can dine at.
In these Covid times, tables must be 6 feet apart from the back of the chair to the back of the chair. This was not the case in this restaurant and tables were not removed or sat appropriately for this. This was the only uncomfortable thing there. Everything was awesome. If demiglase is used on a pasta, cut it with cream and an alcohol please.
Il Terrazzo Carmine's staff was so sweet and thoughtful! They wrote a nice card that said "happy anniversary" for my boyfriend and I, and they also gave us an amazing dessert to celebrate. The food was spectacular and the drinks were delicious. I'd definitely visit them again!
Excellent food. Excellent wine. Service was impeccable. Very busy.
I think all they were missing was some music in the patio.
great food, perfectly well cooked and seasoned, nothing out of the ordinary or "wow". Service was professional and kind. Loved the outdoor patio - lots of space and warm enough even on a cold fall night.
Had a wonderful meal that was served well with Covid restrictions. Great service and good.
Wife’s 50th birthday
A wonderful dinner. Service , food, wine all top notch.
Quick service, great location, food came right away, highly recommend
It was our first time visiting, but certainly will not be the last. Attentive, knowledgeable service made our anniversary dinner all the more special.
Overall a great experience. The service was wonderful, we had a very tasty and affordable bottle of wine. After an appetizer (prosciutto and melon), Cesar salad and pasta (rigatoni bolognese), the star of the night was the Veal Chop. It was incredible! Finished the night off with two espressos and a tiramisu. Was a wonderful anniversary dinner.
Il Terrazzo Carmine is a Seattle classic for a reason. Our dinner did not disappoint! My rack of lamb was incredible, and cooked perfectly. M husband had the venison ravioli, because how do you not have it when you go there? His cauliflower soup was amazing as always. And we both love the key lime dessert. Service was unsurprisingly impeccable: attentive without being intrusive, and very knowledgeable.
Really, you can’t go wrong. One of our favorite restaurants, always worth it. Love, love, love!
Food was quite good. front desk staff most pleasant. Service good. Need to have a less pricey cabernet by the glass...$25 and not nearly worth the price!
