Salad misto was very good. Appetizer cauliflower was boring. The cauliflower was broiled with pepper. Slightly raw with no glaze or sauce. One slice of orange on it. There were a lot of florets but it was very uninspired. We had pasta with spot prawns which were spicy and good. The other dish was a beet ravioli. Again very good but a bit too rich with butter. Seating inside is very crowded. We were seated next to people that were no more than 3 feet from us on either side. Too close for comfort.

Tables are too close for COVID, but our server wonderfully accommodated us. Of the three dishes ordered, two were OK, one was excellent (braised short ribs). Timing was awkward. I would dress warmly and sit outside by a fire the next time I return. Better ambiance. Restaurant is full of hard surfaces and I had to nearly yell to be heard by my companions.

I enjoyed Cantinetta. We had the maltaglati with spot prawn and also the gnudi. These are things I don’t regularly see on menus.

Service was nearly flawless; I probably contributed to the pasta coming before we finished our appetizers by suggesting we might do more courses.

Wine is marked up a lot. I’ll be back, but I need to save my pennies before doing so.

Food was AMAZING! They had outdoor seating too so the front door was opening and closing several times and we were inside right by it, so we were cold the whole time. Other than that, great spot!

I love your restaurant. This time, the bolognese needed more moisture & more of it… still tasty!

The gnoud was outstanding! Beet salad - best in town.

The noise is very loud. Maybe work w an acoustical engineer to find simple sound absorbing material.

Thanks,
Patricia

I was impressed by the bistro-style ambience and the quality of the food. There is a nice outdoor seating area, but the wait was too long, so we sat inside. Our servers were attentive and the food and drinks came out quickly. I would like to return to try other items on the menu, as the quality and the presentation were lovely. My friend and I also appreciated the decent-sized wine pours. Very good experience!

A charming, cute Italian restaurant tucked away in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood. All the servers were busting their a** to accommodate the many patrons on this particular night. It was extremely busy, but as soon as our server came to our table she was patient and took her time to listen and respond to our questions about the menu. We had to wait at the bar for our table (We had a 7:00 reservation and didn't get seated until 7:45...downside) but we were able to watch the bartended on FIRE handling on the drink orders solo! Bravo! We didn't love how long it took from start to finish, but everyone at the restaurant was doing their damn best to accommodate everyone, especially when they were most likely understaffed like many restaurants right now. Definitely will be back! Grazie Mille!

We had a lovely dinner - Negronis were nicely made; antipasti were baby artichoke friti and burrata w peaches; a manzanilla salad next; primi of tagliatelle w asparagus and a fresh egg yolk and pici pomodoro. No secondi as we were full. Great service from Katie, and a lovely evening overall.

But please cook pasta properly… al dente is only firm in the middle, not throughout.
