    Wtf is a “BOH” charge in my bill? I made the mistake of not reviewing the bill when it came to my table. Added was a 3%”BOH” charge. This is likely disclosed on the menu where there is usually warning about eating raw and undercooked meat. That and when I hit 20 percent tip, it calculated it based on the full retail, not the happy hour prices. This is all entirely my fault for not asking to review the bill. Barolo-you’re a nice restaurant with great staff. You don’t need to hustle your guests.

    Made reservations for 730 but did not get sat until 830. We were very patient and didnt make any remarks as we did not want it to ruin our anniversary. Once we got sat, we overheard a couple stating their reservation was at 830 and got sat immediately… that was upsetting. Disappointed in the reservations, would have waited elsewhere as a walk in. However, the hostess was extremely accomodating. Our server was not. felt very rushed and he did not repeat back our orders or check on us to see if we needed anything. Only came to take our orders, drop off our food, bring dessert menu, and had to ask to pay for check. However food was definitely 12/10, delicious! If i were to come back again, it would be either before or after the dinner rush.

    Four of us shared a very good meal on a Friday evening, 7pm. Service was spot on and we all enjoyed our food. Rack of Lamb for me and was great and the vegetables were really nice and fresh. It is always a bit noisy since it is fairly tight but still worth it for the food.

    The food was very good and the service was fine, not excellent. The major complaint I would have is lack of attention to detail and a general lack of interest in our satisfaction level. When asked for a crisp, chilled white wine I was served a sweeter, not chilled glass of wine. My dining companion was served a glass of ice water in a glass with a huge crack in it. She also had a dirty fork at her table setting. Small things, but ones that could easily have been corrected had more attention been paid to the details.

    I was disappointed on service being slow. I recognize that servers were working really hard but the restaurant is clearly understaffed. Also, I remember carbonara being great, this time it tasted blunt and had cream so very different from the original recipe unfortunately.

    Restaurant was clean and nicely set up. White linen tablecloths, nice wine glasses, tasteful decor. We were greeted and seated courteously by the hostess and our server Leo was attentive and professional. The food was excellent, tasty and properly seasoned. Portions were generous. A little on the pricey side, but overall an excellent experience for our party of 6. Highly recomended.

    Barolo is a hidden gem in downtown Seattle. Food, service, ambience were all fantastic. Very nice wine list with something Italian for any budget. We had the steak, lamb, and pasta bolognese and the three of us shared Italian style and we all enjoyed all three.

    One of our favorite restaurants in town for Italian food. We had carpaccio and steamed clams for appetizer. Halibut cheeks (special) and beef shank with saffron risotto for entree. Everything was incredibly delicious and flavorful. They also have a variety of wine collection. Great service as well. We’ll definitely be back for many many times.

    Honestly, we only ordered starters. We waited quite some time for our cocktails, over 15 minutes, and the food was just ok. 2 dishes were pretty good. 2 dishes were meh at best. For the price, the value wasn’t there. Beautiful aesthetic in the restaurant.
