    Food took forever to come out. We had two appetizers completely finished before we got our two glasses of wine. Our server said he made our food order? Pasta was falling apart. Great two year wedding anniversary dinner 😵‍💫 our server however absolutely crushed it.

    We were celebrating birthdays with the tasting menu. The food was amazing! Highly recommend. However, for how much money we spent the service should have been spot on. We had long waits and I had to ask for my next wine pairing each time. They seemed unprepared for the volume of diners that came in that evening. However, we are assuming it was a one-off and we will be back.

    Unfortunately, in spite of having reservations we had a long wait before we got seated last night. Fortunately I had great company and the wait staff checked on us frequently were very kind. While waiting isn’t fun, the staff did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable. There is only so much you can do to hustle our lingering diners. We had an excellent meal with lots of food (loved the burrata, carrots and pasta with lamb bolognese). We were so satiated by the end that somehow we left without taking the boxed left overs from the table. This restaurant isn’t close for me but I really enjoyed myself. We had great service, a cozy atmosphere and delightful, soul warming food. I will be back.

    Enjoyed a fulfilling evening reuniting with friends and our first experience here. We had 4 people and ordered a mix of 6 dishes to share. Everything we tried was excellent. Steak was prepared perfectly medium rare. Scallops some of the best we’ve had recently. Service was exceptional and memorable. Would recommend.

    Great restaurant. Creative menu. Amazing, handmade pasta. Innovative cocktails. Only dings are limited wine selection and relatively narrow menu choices. Necessary for a limited scale, "neighborhood" restaurant that seats perhaps 40. For fresh, excellent Italian fare, a very solid choice!

    First time here and 2 of us ordered the tasting menu. Mixed review from me. Yummy appies (burrata, beets, brussel sprouts outstanding) except almost inedibly chewy/sinewy ahi tune with a hot sauce that did not work at all). Pasta dish was OK, but I was disappointed that both courses -- pasta and the protein -- were pork! OK I'm not a pork eater, I should've said something. Pork entree was too fatty and gristly to eat in some pieces but other pieces were good. Also 3 of the 4 courses had the hazelnuts. Also surprised that we got one piece of tiramisu to share for dessert (delish though!! and we were saying we were full) So I'm going to borrow from another review here -- underwhelming. I'd give the food another chance but agree with another reviewer that the noise level here was unbearable for me and I agree that they need to do something to buffer sound. Maybe that's me? Wonderful service -- Jenn. Undecided if I'll come back. I wouldn't get the tasting menu again. Others I know love this place so maybe it's me.

    Seemed to have trouble keeping up on a Sunday night: one app was forgotten, meat wasn't hot when it got to the table. Food overall was great, but given that I had very high expectations due to the reputation, was a little disappointed.

    It took us an hour and a half to get our pasta dishes last night. I don’t think it was the waitresses fault I think they just missed putting our order in. No compensation offered for the long wait.

    First time I brought clients here for dinner. My wife and I have gone several times and this is our favorite Italian food in the Junction. Menu is great! Craft cocktails and small, but perfect offering of starters, pasta dishes (do not miss!) and mains. Also, I noticed they have a bread oven which makes anything with bread taste even better. Wine list was small, which I liked, but very pricey. Nothing red under $100, just so you know, but the wines they have are very good. My customers told me the next day they had a great time and loved the food, wine and ambiance (we sat in a booth). Success!

    This place was recommended to us by my daughter. Varied menu and ingredients and prices felt on par! We had said it was my husband"s bday, but got no special notice (we even had to tell our server), paid a $30 corkage, but because food was brought so fast we had hardly finished our special cocktails - ended up bringing o2/3 of our bottle home. Great food - just lack of server awareness about pacing...

    This meal was fine. All of our apps were really delicious. All of our pasta dishes were probably worse versions of something I could easily make at home. Across the board, it was not a good value. It is very overpriced for what it is.

    Delicious food (they had a specialized menu for Seattle Restaurant Week), but the food was delicious and interesting. Drinks were also delicious as well although a little on the pricier side, but they were the specialty cocktails so that’s a given. Overall, great experience 👍🏽

    An overall nice experience; the food took awhile to arrive but this was also enjoyable because it gave us time to digest our appetizers and finish the main entrees; beautifully dished, and very kind staff. Do recommend for date nights and special occasions.

    This is a go-to place for my partner and I. It is also a staple in West Seattle for fine dining. They explore new food and cocktails all the time to the delight of everyone who has a chance to experience Raccolto. When you find a restaurant that takes you on a journey with flavors you definitely keep going back.
