Our server was just amazing. Wish I got her name so I can complement her to everyone! She made sure we were taken care of and everything she recommended was amazing! Service is awesome.

The perfect pair. Theatre and dinner at Barolo. We had a spectacular lunch a few months ago and decided to try their dinner menu. What word is better than spectacular? It would be Barolo! Milan was our waitress and she met our needs to perfection. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a wonderful time, the Italian food was prepared to perfection, and we had a wonderful wine to go with it. Our server was superbe. Yes it's a bit expensive, but it's a very special place.

I’ve been here several times when we travel to Seattle. This time they gave our party of 6 a private dining area. A white curtain separated us from the other tables. Our reservation was for 7:30. By 8:15 the noise level had reduced considerably. We had eaten here previously earlier in the evening. I now understand to reserve a table later in the evening if you want to converse without yelling. I do not like the techno music, but the volume is low enough in the dining room. Good food, wine list, and service.

A wonderful night with friends, one who was retiring. The cocktails, food and service were outstanding! Alexander was fabulous! Also, they accommodated our group with individual checks which was really convenient.

I want to like Barolo, but the food wasn't great---I had the gnocchi and it was not soft and pillowy, and my husband had a dish that was way too salty. The service was great, the ambiance so so. There's much better Italian in Seattle, for sure.

Went here for my boyfriend's birthday. We really felt that the server and staff went all out to make it a special night. We were not rushed and the food was great. Definitely get the Antipasto!

We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. The menus arrived with 'Happy birthday' written across the top. The server was knowledgeable and attentive, but not over the top. The food was outstanding. And they brought a beautiful dessert, complete with fire cracker as candle! We loved it!

Great food and service. The Lobster Risotto is amazing. Excellent wine choice. We celebrated our 21st anniversary. We had a specialized menu and dessert with a candle.

We were seated immediately for our reservation 20 minutes early. A great surprise wishing us a happy anniversary. Excellent service started immediately. Thank you!

Discovered this place a month ago. Loved it the first time and the second time was just as good. Their bread and tapenade is incredible and the pasta dishes are to die for! Best duck and wild boar around. They have valet parking which is a plus. Will definitely be back!!!!!

Unfortunately the music is still a disruptive loops ambient beat. Really get with the times. The awful music does not match the beautiful place and exceptional food. I visit this place less and embarrassed to bring guests just because of this one thing. Just play Billy Holiday or anything rather than techno... Please!

It is with regret that I must not recommend Barolo to my friends, nor will we return. We have dined with you often, and what bothered us was the crowd of people in the restaurant on Saturday night. In the booth next to us was a loud gentleman broadcasting around the room to other guests trying to impress everyone, with his three lady guests we suspected as not being of high character. On the other side was another rowdy table of less than desirable dining patrons we would want to be sharing the evening with.

Barolo has become a late night hangout for a young and lower caliber group that frankly ruined our evening. Add the fact is was cold inside, we won't be coming back, which is a shame given the food was outstanding. Ambiance, décor and ability to converse are required.
