So accommodating for a birthday party of 8. We sat is a little private curtained corner with a round table and chandelier. Food was delicious. Alessandro was a great waiter, he offered delicious food suggestions and lovely drink alternatives (virgin mojitos) We are all looking forward to returning.
Also walking distance to theater and shopping.
The food is fabulous although the fish was slightly overcooked. Food portions are ample so unless you're a glutton, everyone should ignore any comments to the contrary. My main problem with this restaurant is that I got seated at the worst table in the restaurant despite a reservation. The table is right by the entrance to the kitchen. And the music really is awful. Techno pop played too loud. Why not play Italian opera or something a tad more soothing than this computer generated not so sonorous or soothing chaotic sound?
Let's face it - great Italian restaurants here in the US aren't easy to find. If you've dined in Italy, you know that wonderful trattoria in a charming hill town that's affordable doesn't exist here. While Barolo
isn't that restaurant, you can expect a high level of food quality and presentation. As with most Italians of that category, it's pricey. I didn't love the look or feel (and dreary location) but the food didn't disappoint. Service was very good with an enthusiastic server that clearly knew the menu and tried hard to please.
Our first time at Barolo. Good food and excellent service. Overall, a very enjoyable experience. We'll be back.
I had an amazing meal. I'm coming back soon. The food was fresh, light and just delicious. I grew up on the east coast and ate a lot of Italian. Since moving to the west coast, I haven't had great experiences with Italian food until now. It's a bit pricey but the food is fantastic.
I was diappointed with the serving size of the meal.
Great place for lunch. Decent amount of options for meat, fish, and vegetables. Prices can also accommodate a wide range of people. Overall great service. Nice staff.
Food was great. Our server was fabulous. Would definitely go back again
I've held many business lunches there and the menu is fantastic, and service is surprisingly fast and friendly.
The portions were very small, the risotto undercooked, dry, and full of crab shell. The lighting and setting was dim and romantic but the music more like something you would expect to hear in a club. The waitress was popping out of her mostly unbuttoned dress and clearly more accustomed to pleasing male customers than female.
I have yet to see lobster offerings for Seattle Restaurant Week at any restaurant. Barolo out did themselves. My seafood critical parents were raving about how sweet the lobster is, and how they did not skimp on the portion size for the lobster. The grilled octopus was a delight. If you like meatballs, you will enjoy their humongous housemade meatballs. We are more seafood people, therefore, the octopus would be my choice next time. Joseph the waiter made my mother's birthday very memorable. We look forward to visiting again when we are in the area.
Great spot for a white table cloth lunch. I hear the happy hour is quite nice as well.
This is quite a nice place. Food is good with fair price. There is even a sofa for your waiting time.
The only issue is, there is a large table in the middle of the restaurant for large groups. Usually, it means they need to talk like shout at each others and the whole room will look like a playground after a couple of drinks. It really ruin the dinning experience sometime.
Went for restaurant week. Best gnocchi I've had and their spicy meatball appetizer was amazing.
I have been to Barolo for lunch several times. It has become our standard for team lunchs. Our general favorite is a combination of any two items to create the Dueto. Service can be a little slow, but guessing they are doing that to give you a leisurely experience.
Would recommend to anyone looking for great food.
Barolo never disappoints. ALWAYS so vibrant - - even on a Monday night! the owners are amazing, the food is perfection, the service is great and the décor and environment is always perfect! Thank you!!
The food.... all 3 dishes we ordered gave you that warm goosebumpy goodness that you get when eating grandma's cooking. Or at restaraunts that cost twice as much. I wouldn't say that this is a cheap place to eat, but you can expect to be wowed by the flavors. Truly delicious.
We have been here for happy hour bites and drinks many times during the week. This is our first dinner experience and we thought the lounge menus during happy hour tasted better than the specials at dinner. As always, the servers in the lounge and dinning rooms were great and attentive.
We may make another attempt for dinner or lunch, but will be back for happy hours for sure to enjoy the grilled calamarie, antipasto, carpaccio, salads and escargot.
Great use of Italian ingredients. Great offering of homemade pasta. Loved that they have octopus on the menu! I would eat here again if in town. I feel it is also a good value for the price.
Barolo is always excellent!!!!!! Great food, service, everything!
