Delicious food and incredible service. Due to quite a few tables staying longer than expected, we weren’t seated until about 30 min after our reservation time. It was totally fine as we were with friends and standing outside chatting, but the Raccolto staff frequently came outside apologizing for the delay, brought us drinks on the house and three free appetizers. It was exceptional customer service and showed just how much the staff cares about their guests. We really appreciated it and will highly recommend Raccolto to friends and family!

This is the fourth time I have been to Raccolto and I am impressed with its consistent excellence. Fortunately for them, unfortunately for me, too many other people think the same thing! Bravo, Raccolto!!

Great restaurant, but I think standing behind a 747 getting ready to take off might be quieter. It was impossible to talk without shouting. Definitely needs some sound deadening. Food is great. Staff is great. Nice interior- just WAYYYY TO LOUD!!!

The food here isn't as good as their other restaurant Vendemmia. The tagliatelle we ordered was cooked Al dente but had no flavor. Their Cacio e Pepe version was ok but not great. I see a lot of people have good things to say about their food but we think it's overrated. The halibut that evening was good (I give them that). A lot of people complain about tables being close to each other but we think it was fine (what do you expect? It's a restaurant). Ambiance is good. Servers need to be more attentive. Would I come back? No.

I am constantly blown away by just how good the food is. We've also been fortunate to have incredible service while we've been there as well. If you're having trouble deciding, they're happen to help and they won't lead you astray! The Foie Gras Mousse and the Smoked Fish are some of the best tasting things I've ever had. Pace yourselves though. If you get too overzealous, you end up way too full at the end to enjoy your protein course. My only regret? Not leaving room for dessert.

We had an excellent dining experience. Yes it was noisy, but it’s just that kind of place (hard surfaces, spare decor). the food was very goo, the prices were in line with similar places, the service was excellent. We will certainly return.

This was our first visit to Raccolto, we had seen it advertised in places to eat in West Seattle and it did not disappoint. Our server was a delight and we were seated right away. The two pasta dishes we shared were exquisite. The ambiance felt cozy and allowed for conversation. The prices were fair and reasonable considering the whole package. There is also a space upstairs where an event for up to 12 could be hosted. We will definitely be returning to Raccolto and sharing the experience with our friends.

What a fantastic local find! I've been twice, and both times the food and service were outstanding. The food is beautifully presented, and comes to the table hot and fresh. My husband had a wonderful time watching the chefs behind the counter. Music was a little loud when we came in for 5:15 reservation, but they turned it down so we could enjoy our conversation

This restaurant is a favorite for us. One of the first things you notice is that there is always the same staff working which feels nice and familiar, along with the hope that they are earning a good full time living wage. The food is consistently delicious with the homemade pasta dishes a special standout. We have been lucky enough to slip into the bar occasionally for full service, but never assume! Get a reservation:)

I love it!
The food is great, the carrot soup is out of this world I do not know how they do it. Steak Tartar is delish and the pasta I had with nettle pesto was really good as well. My husband had the burrata and the scallops and both were delicious. This is my new favorite West Seattle restaurant.

The service was excellent with great attention to detail. Our waitstaff always kept the wine filled, explained the food being delivered, changed flatware between courses and paced our 4 course meal excellently. The volume is moderate, but on the right night it may allow for more intimate conversation.

I went to Raccolto with a friend on Saturday night and was not disappointed. We were greeted by a friendly host, seated earlier than our reservation time and enjoyed delicious food and ambiance. The burrata was so good and sharing 2 pasta's between us was the perfect amount of food for two. Leaving room for dessert of course! Highly recommend, this is a much needed addition to the West Seattle food scene.

The pasta is very good. The non-pasta entries are not very good. The pork chop we had was very dry. The prime New York steak was also not very good and frankly did not taste like a prime steak. The service was quite good and the appetizer we had (salmon on bread) was superb. If you come eat the pasta.

We love the food and service at Raccolto and have made the trek there from North Seattle several times, but the noise level has become intolerable. We measured it at 88dB last night and could only carry on a conversation with difficulty. Our waiter didn’t hear our dessert order and brought the wrong dish. PLEASE do something about this!! We’re thinking twice now about going back!

We took our kids (10 & 12) out to celebrate the sale of our home. The service was fantastic, food is exceptional, and the space is comfortable. Our server set the pace for the meal, bringing each shareable dish at the perfect cadence. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place in West Seattle, or anywhere else in the city.
