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.

    Nice place, appealingly broad menu cutting across some Italian subgenres. Excellent service from KatieAnne, who with patience and good will helped me distinguish between "cream cheese" and "green peas" in the night's special. Pastas especially good.

    Restaurant was busy but we were seated right away. Great vibe from the moment we walked in. Service was professional but friendly with our server sharing recommendations of some of her favorite dishes. Meals were out in probably 10 minutes after ordering but we never felt rushed. Each dish was excellent. We will definitely be back.

    The food was spectacular. Full stop. We had the Stinco di agnello and the fettuccine ai gamberi et limone. The lamb melted off the bone and in your mouth and the pasta was fresh and exquisite. Profiteroles and limoncello finished the meal in a similar fashion. Exceptional! The staff was attentive, but not overbearing. Definitely recommended...

    Our waiter had an annoyed look most of the time. They were not that attentive and we would wait 5-10mins for someone to check up on us. Way to loud in there to hear one another and the food wasn’t that great. Very mid

    They told Open Table we were no-show! But we were there. We even accepted a downgraded table. And we spent $150. Did not appreciate being scolded and demerited but the server was great. And the food was good.

    Our waitress Katie was spectacular. She offered multiple suggestions for entrees and answered all our menu questions with ease. (We we’re from out of town and she even bothered to write down a list of sights to see and things to do!) Food was outstanding , from the appetizer small batch complimentary bread, to the pesto pasta, and 3 cheese pizza with house made sausage. I would definitely come back. Thanks again Katie!

    We had a great experience at Cinque Terra. We thought inside was a little noisy, so we sat outside and, while a little warm during Seattle’s current heat wave, it was all good. Our server was professional, prompt, and great to talk with. I had the petite steak, and my wife had the shrimp fettuccine, both of which were done very well. I recommend. And we’ll come again the next time we’re in town.

    Unfortunately the staff was really struggling on the night of our visit, and it took us over 20 minutes to get our first drink - a problem we also observed other tables having. Our server kept thanking us for our patience, but there never seemed to be much of an effort to fix the situation or to check on us more often. We also received our dessert menus while we were still eating our entrees (maybe 5 minutes or less after they had been delivered), which made us feel like they were pushing us out the door. Additionally, the food was only okay - my "handmade" casarecce was harder than al dente in the middle, and my husband's lasagna lacked salt. Disappointed that we chose Cinque Terre for our last night in Seattle.

    Ugh, I hate to do this but the service was just non existent... I think it's a result of the pandemic and so they are maybe understaffed and the staff that are there are new so they don't know how to do anything. If they got it together it would have been a great experience. We had to literally ask 3-5× for everything - from a spoon, knife, drink, water, the bill, dessert menus, it was literally everything. We didn't even have menus for the first 30 minutes. Not one single thing was done without us asking for it at least 3 times.

    We enjoyed everything about our experience here. Chic setting, great menu, good wines by the glass - and our server, Jessica, was very professional and personable. Several large parties were booked in the same evening we dined there, and she helped slide our orders into the kitchen ahead of them. Would definitely return, and would definitely ask to be seated with Jessica.

The food was amazing! Would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised when the server brought out a complimentary tiramisu as a birthday surprise.

    It was.... fine. Burrata was nothing special, but the prosciutto it was sitting on was great. Others loved the mussels and clams. Entrees: spaghetti with meatballs, wild boar rigatoni (meh) and prawn fettuccine (my daughter loved it). My cocktail was just okay. Very nice server. I wonder if it is better to visit for pizza or lunch,

    Excellent dining choice. Started off with prosciutto and burrata and grilled octopus. The cheese was very creamy and the ham cured beautifully, with the octopus charred nicely. Then we chose lasagna and zuppa di pesce. The lasagna was extremely light and delicate. We added pasta to the fish, which was homemade and delicious. The broth was silky smooth yet very flavorful, the fish fresh and cooked perfectly. Shout out to our excellent server Jessica, whose recommendations were fantastic and friendly demeanor wonderful. One of the best southern Italian restaurants we’ve been to in years.
