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.

We waited 15 minutes after being seated (and had to ask) to get greeted by our server. She then brought out a "free" carpaccio plate for the table for our inconvenience, but then proceeded to leave us a bill with it on there, so....not free.

Food was really good. They were either understaffed (join the club) or our server was otherwise occupied. She never introduced herself by name.

My husband and I met with a dear friend we haven’t seen in 20 years and her husband. We got lost in conversation and the good food and wine. We ended up staying 4 hours… until the restaurant closed. I know that’s not the norm but our server remained gracious, attentive and very kind the whole night. Fantastic service!! Thank you so much for a special night!

We had a great meal. Service was also excellent with our waitress Nora leading the way. Lasagna, pizza, and chicken parmesan were all great.

Wonderful meal. Our waiter was great but due to staffing issues the service was slow. Food was great. And they apologized for the the slow service by treating us to wine and dessert!

We had a 9pm reservation. Was seated at 925, got our drinks 20 minutes later and didn’t start eating until 1015. Birthday dessert was skipped. The service while everyone was SUPER kind, it just wasn’t timely.

Appetizers and Entres are both well portioned and excellently prepared. Wine list is robust with great quality and selection. Servers are knowledgeable and all work as a team to provide wonderful customer service. We love this restaurant and each here each time we visit the Seattle area.

We loved this restaurant. It was a cool modern atmosphere. We especially loved the rigatoni with wild boar, which was one of our favorite meals in Italy.

Booked a table for Mama's birthday. They really made it special and went above and beyond. I'm very much thankful. Filet perfectly cooked. Pesto was awesome and a silent winner on the menu. Oysters on point. Thank you for awesome evening.

I had the Frutti del Mare, and unfortunately I was disappointed with the lack a flavor. This was the first unsatisfying meal I had had a Cinque Terre. My lunch guest raved about the vegan pizza she had. The bread was delicious.

The prices and quality was a good value compared to other restaurants downtown. The restaurant is clean and bright with light wood tables, chrome and lots of windows. The service was uneven. We had 6 in our party and we didn’t all get our salads or our entrees at the same time. That might have been a fluke but it diminished the experience. The waitress seemed very busy and not attentive enough. If you’re looking for a place downtown that has decent food and won’t break the bank, it’s worth a look.

Wow, what an amazing time we just had! Both the food and service blew us away. Honestly wasn’t expecting a pre-pandemic experience (especially after an extremely poor showing at an overrated downtown restaurant the night before), but the kitchen and staff of Cinque Terra d-e-l-I-v-e-r-e-d. We’re in the industry and know just how hard they are working. Want a great time? Can highly recommend this restaurant.

Ambiance is immaculate but the food isn’t at the same level. Service was great and our servers wine recommendation was great, but the food was the lowest common denominator.

Delicious fresh pasta made in house, as was the bread. The steelhead trout, prawns & calamari were very tasty. The sale we split was fresh and included ingredients such as sliced apple and shaved cheese with a light vinaigrette. Ryan was an excellent attendent server, despite the other tables keeping him quite busy.
