Cinque Terre is a beautiful area of the Italian Riviera which is comprised of five villages. The towns are connected by medieval style walkable paths. These villages are a favored destination for travelers to Italy where seafood is prevalent. Pesto, a condiment made of fresh basil, is the flagship of tradition in the region. At Cinque Terre, we make our pesto every day from the freshest and top quality ingredients. We always have on the menu, Muscoli (mussels), Polpo (octopus), Gamberi (shrimp) and a variety of seasonal seafood, artisan pizzas along with house-made pastas.

A huge thanks to our server Christina and this WONDERFUL establishment for making our anniversary a special and splendid experience.
We had the chefs choice antipasto, cesar salad, lasagna and homemade fettuccini with prawns. By the time the entrees got to our table I was ready to give this place 5 stars. Upon first bite, i was inspired to write a review detailing my experience here.
Hats off to the chef, owners and front/back of the house staff that all contribute to creating this amazing experience day in and day out. 10/10 for food, presentation, decor, quality and SERVICE!
We will 100% be back for more. Thank you!
The octopus was great as was the pesto pasta that we had with prawns. Great wine as well. Very lovely.
Wonderful birthday meal and such a beautiful restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly, and every precaution was taken so felt very safe. Covid and the current conditions in the Seattle/SLU core have definitely slammed this once always busy establishment. Support your local independent restaurants, people! They’re fighting an uphill battle.
Thank you for your review. I am glad you felt safe and enjoyed your meal. It is our upmost priority to make each guest feel comfortable with our current situation so they can relax and enjoy their time with friends and family. We appreciate your recognition in our safety protocols. It means a lot. Thank you, Michael Barnett General Manager
Good social distancing. Good waitress. Music was a little loud, and didn't provide a romantic atmosphere.
Thank you for your review and kind words. We will keep in mind the volume of our music. Thank you so much for allowing us to be better by your feedback. Thank you, Michael Barnett General Manager
Food was great. Service was nice but ridiculously slow. Also, they are demanding to take your temperature at the door which is not required under the current orders and pretty offputting Giving they are not asking, they are demanding.They should consider asking in a different way so it is not a demand. I suspect most people would do so if asked. But demanding something that it’s not required put a very negative start on the visit.
I want to apologize for the demand of temp taking. It is not our policy to demand anything from our valued guests. I have talked to my host team and moving forward we will be more polite and ask. I hope that you will join us again so you can see that every comment our guests make are addressed immediately. It is our hope, with feedback that we constantly strive to be better and offer service that is impeccable. Thank you, Michael Barnett General Manager
Good service, good food.
Just enjoyed a spectacular meal for two. Had several small sharing plates to begin. Each one was beautifully presented & very tasty. Two delicious main courses & a wonderful dessert to finish. The restaurant has a full service bar also. We sat indoors but outside is a charming covered patio. The general manager Michael made us feel very welcome & the servers were very speedy & polite. We will definitely return here.
I had a great time here eating there food. They have had phenomenal service, nice waiters, and very good wine. I personally ordered the steak and potatoes and my girlfriend ordered the pasta. I will definitely return for a nice meal!! highly recommend.
Amazing food. Very caring staff. Excellent social distancing.
Perfect restaurant. Very good food, good Italian vine selection. Great customer service.

Excellent food, presentation and service! We had a little dinner party here for my daughter and her friend & we Loved every minute of it. The staff was very welcoming & accomodating. Nice bonus of having Free parking in the middle of Seattle too. We will definitely return.
Excellent food and fantastic service. We will return!
Had a great experience at Cinque Terre. Service food atmosphere and attention to Covid recommendations were all spot on. Once at the table, fresh fragrant focaccia and infused oil was presented. We started by sharing a pizza Margherita that brought me back to the true flavors of Naples. Not to miss is the monumental Carpaccio, truly delicious! For main course we ordered Lasagna and chicken parmigiana, both very tasty and plentiful.
Can’t wait to go back!
Bravo cinque Terre!
We enjoyed our meals and the service was on point
All of the food came out perfectly cooked and it tasted delicious. The wine that was recommended paired well with our food selection. A big thank you to the staff for being there and making for a superb dining experience during these challenging times. We will be back and tell of our friends to visit this fine restaurant
Wonderful food, service, wine and cocktails. We started with a pizza (excellent) and some oysters that were fresh and super cold. Pacific Perch and wild boar rigatoni were excellent as well. Overall this was the best dinner we had in a long time!
What a wonderful experience. Food was amazing. Our server Christina took care of us as if we were family. Couldn't be happier with our night out. Highly recommend and we will be back
Cinque Terre is quickly becoming our new favorite spot. We love the food and service is always great. Their octopus is a must try, as well as the empress martini! We were very pleased to see the safety measures they have recently implemented for the COVID restrictions. Temperature checks upon entering, masks required, QR code’s for touchless menu viewing, staff very mindful of sanitizing and cleanliness all around. We felt very comfortable dining here.
The four cheese pizza with sausage was absolutely terrible. And the service wasn’t much better.
Happy hour is the best time to dine here!
Great food and experience for a second date! We even got to meet the chef and tell him how wonderful the meal was!
Food and service from our waitress, Carrie, was impeccable! Will definitely come back!
A great place with accommodating staff. We will definitely go again.
The bread was insanely amazing!!!!! Thank you!!!!
It was an amazing experience! Food, service, everything. Can’t rate this place high enough.
Great outside experience
The customer service was on point! Food was good, and because of the great customer service would definitely come back again.
Amazing food and service was incredible
Fantastic food, and we LOVED that they took our temperature (no contact) on the way in. We were lucky - they had just re-opened, so not at all noisy. Great foccacio with amazing oil spread.
The food was amazing! We were so happy to be back eating at one of our favorite restaurants and they took great care of us. Love this place!
Our server Christine was great!!
Thank you so much. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Please let me know when you come back in so I can introduce myself. Kind regards, Michael Barnett General Manager
It was perfect. That’s all there is to say. This is a fantastic restaurant.
Thank you so much for your review of our restaurant. We appreciate your kind words.
Our party of four had a reservation for a 4:30 dinner. We arrived a bit early but were graciously seated right away. From beginning to end our dinner was a lovely experience. We asked them to set us up with chef's choice of seafood and Tomahawk rib eye, family style. Plate after plate of incredible food arrived at our table including oysters, clams in pesto sauce, octopus (delicious!) and cuttlefish on sqid ink pasta. The rib eye was a perfect medium-rare and we all agreed it was easily the most flavourful steak we had ever had. My brother, who managed steak restaurants for many years, was first to say it was an amazing steak. The owner chose a beautiful chardonnay to pair with the seafood. I wish I could recall the name of the wine because I would buy more when I get home. I highly recommend Cinque Terre and will return.
Our go to dinner place after a show at the Paramount. We love the selection of seafood and pastas they have and as usual our dinner was wonderful. We went for local oysters, squid ink spaghetti with dungeness crab, and grilled octopus and loved it all.
Food was very good. Service was a little spotty at first. Took at least 20 minutes to get a cocktail after I ordered it. That’s my only complaint. Nice atmosphere.
The food was great and our servers was very good.
Our waitress was awesome, amazing. Best service. She was very friendly and helpful.
Wait staff was very aggressive and pushing additional items. Special pasta dish was bland. Quite noisy!
