The chestnut rigatoni was AMAZING! The cannoli and polenta fries were also delicious.

45 minutes for our app to arrive and we left after an hour and half because our dinner was no where in sight. Super bummed, the menu looked delicious. Not staffed to support their customers.

The service was slow, wait staff quite rude, and food quality poor. The rigatoni came out cold and was hard as a rock. Not at all a good dining experience. When the owner came out to talk to us his tone was rude and accusatory. I am very disappointed in this experience. It was so promising. Pretty sad about this. :(

Such great food and service for a brunch lazy day and I normally hate brunch. Bacon gravy madame is 2 thumbs up. They make their own lemoncello (sp). Social distancing respected inside. Also got great pasta delivered with grub hub later in the week. Doing it again soon.

Highly recommend this place for the excellent and creative cuisine. We did a family style shard plates and left it up to Chef Thomas to make the selections. Everything was excellent! What a fun way to eat, full of wonderful surprises! Great service, wines and Dean Martin music!! This is a really fun way to go out for dinner!

Food was good. Just a bit overpriced compared to competition. There are plenty of Italian restaurants in Seattle that serve awesome food around $20 for a plate of pasta instead of $27. I will go back. But not often

Do not go on valentines day. The set menu they had was terrible. No hostess at the front. Took 1 hour to be seated even though I had a reservation. Food was gross and overpriced. The only good thing was the desert.

The food was great, but they over booked themselves. We got an 8:30pm reservation, and because we showed up a half hour early, we were seated at our reservation time (as compared to others that showed up closer to their reservation time and weren't seated until after 9pm). The kitchen was in the weeds the whole night. Even though they were only offering a prix fixe menu with three choices per course, it took a half hour for us to get our first course, and almost an hour between the first course and the second. That is RIDICULOUS. The food is fabulous, but don't go there on Valentine's day.

Went for Valentine’s Day, 1st the limited Valentine’s Day menu wasn’t advertised so locked into buying only the meal offered. The meal offered was not designed to appeal to the broadest audience so stuck eating something I typically would never choose. The food came out tasting undercooked and rushed. We didn’t come close to finishing any of the food since it didn’t taste good and the staff seemed offended we didn’t want to take the leftovers. The drinks were the only good on the night. Overall, for $300 for 2 people on Valentine’s Day I would have expected better.

Typical Valentine’s Day. Over booked. Understaffed. Prefix menu with the added twist that the entire table must order and share a single entree, which after negotiations, ended up being a poor cut of grey ribeye. Extremely expensive for what we got out of the night. I don’t blame the servers, but we will not be returning.

Very slow service, above average food except the main course. From our reservation time to paying the check it took two hours. We waited nearly 45 minutes for the main course of ribeye of which nearly half it was fat. We asked for the dessert to-go because we had to leave and got home with one of them being the wrong dessert. Overall very disappointing for a meal over $300. To their credit, they tried to make it right - very nice waiter, $50 off the meal (and still over $300), gave us two glasses of wine because we went through a bottle waiting for our meal. But we probably won’t go back.

Valentine’s Day—special menu. With a scaled-down holiday menu they should have been able to prep and serve much more quickly. We came at 7 and sat until 10. People with 8:30 reservations were still waiting to be seated. Several of the dishes were downright awful, especially the rib-eye steak, which appeared to be cooked sous vide. The soup under-seasoned. The cannolis were empty in the middles. They did comp our cocktails because if the long wait. The staff was very nice and worked their tails off, but the meal was just awful and exhausting.

Came for the Valentine's day dinner. Food was underwhelming. Steak was cold, soup was cold. Server forgot about the grapefruit sorbet and had to be reminded after the 3rd course. Had much higher expectations considering the price and being billed as a special event. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

This was our highly anticipated first time to Agrodolce. It’s usually a rule for my date and I to never visit a restaurant on a holiday as the staffing tends to be subpar/everybody “out sick”. I am hoping this mediocre experience was due to a lack of kitchen crew because the floor staff was fantastic.
The table next to us were whispering that they microwaved everything for too long which was a shock to us as it took over an hour to get our main course.
The drinks were great and our waiter was attentive. The appetizers were nothing to write home about or taking a selfie with but I wasnt too disappointed as the drinks and ambiance made up for it.
What was egregious was the “ribeye”, our shared entree. An animal died for our sins and it was sitting on a bed of limp broccolini with Dairy Queen cherry ice cream sauce. Or maybe it was cherry teriyaki?
We could taste how beautifully the meat was dry aged but the way it was cooked and drizzled with syrup destroyed it all. Everything was dry and we had serious doubts it was a ribeye cut due to a lack of juiciness or marbling. The meat was barely pink in the center and it was tough to chew even with copious amounts of water.
We ended up having to ask for the check when the entree arrived and taking our dessert to go as we had an event to attend.
Worth the $200+ we spent for a Valentines meal?
No.
Worth it to try again before I strike it permanently off the list in favor of the copious amounts of restaurants popping up in Seattle every day?
Yes.

We went to Agrodolce for Valentine’s Day. A table was not available so the put us in the bar to wait. No problem. We were seated after a while — 30 minutes past our reservation time. During this time I noticed that the didn’t seem to know how to move out diners who had already paid.
Our dinner arrived in courses, usually lukewarm. We requested table salt because most dishes were a bit bland. We were underwhelmed by the dishes.
The high spot was the service. Our waiter was attentive and accommodating. But as I noted, the wait staff seemed unable to move people on. The table next to is finished a good 20 minutes before us, yet was still at the table chatting as we departed. The line for tables jammed the foyer — there was not room in he bar to accommodate them.

My wife and I have been here twice. This is for our second visit, which was a Valentine's Day four course, pre set menu ($90 each). I'm not going to go through each dish, because almost every course we had was fairly bland and uninspired. The truffle risotto was excellent, but the rib eye, while good, was under salted. Or if it was properly salted, it was around 75% of what it could've been.

I know this is my most negative review, and I truly want to be fair and constructive when it comes to reviewing restaurants, but this experience has the largest discrepancy between the price you're paying vs. dinning experience. We've eaten at Copine, Tilth, and Rock Creek Seafood. Those places left our minds blown with flavors I've never tasted before. I was waiting for that to happen with each course and it pretty much was the opposite.

The waitstaff was excellent, attentive, and the dish pacing was good.

Traditional Italian dining experience with modern Southern Italian cuisine. Come here if you want to spend time with friends over a great meal with creative seasonal flavors, where you're not rushed out the door. Two of us shared a pasta and two small plates with cocktails, decided to stay for a second round of drinks and added an entree. Stayed over 2 and a half hrs. Everything was new, different and tasty. The chicory salad, coffee flour pappardelle, and pork loin were each absolutely amazing but I'm guessing will be replaced by other interesting dishes with the next menu change.

I don't understand the bad reviews here. If you're looking for fast, predictable, Americanized Italian food then this isn't the place for you.

Food and service was excellent. Emily was our server and was very attentive. The food was excellent. I had the Tonnemaker Squash Cavatelli with the Chicory Salad starter salad which were both excellent full of flavor. Noteworthy was the smell of other dishes as they passed our table.

Don't be fooled by pictures of this place. It may look like a nice brunch spot but the food here is definitely the worst I've had in Seattle. Thought that was just my opinion but the three friends I brought unanimously agreed. Polenta Fries were good though.
