Portions seemed smaller than usual.
The pasta is too al dente and should be cooked 30 seconds longer.
The hamachi was fantastic

And I miss your beef bolognese.
The lamb is good but the beef was better.

This is our second time to Raccolto. And it was as good as our first experience! The pasta dish was simple, but very elegant. Clearly fresh, homemade pasta.

The chicken dish is easily, the best chicken we have ever had. So moist and full of flavor. But the skin was perfectly crisp.

For dessert….the almond cake. Melt in your mouth cake with a fruit topping.

The service was perfect.

As always, the food at Raccolto was outstanding. Period.

The reason why our ratings are less than 5 stars for our overall experience and service is a simple matter. It was really disappointing to order drinks and five courses, and have the first four items hit the table simultaneously, followed by the final two courses within a minute of the final bite of the previous item(s) being finished. Total time for everything = 58 minutes. We’ve rarely felt so rushed for what should have been a really enjoyable dining experience.

I hasten to add that the service was otherwise as friendly, accommodating and relaxed as one would ever hope for. Just incredibly rapid-fire.

I used to love this restaurant, but the food wasn’t as good. It was average.
That’s too bad, because it used to be my favorite restaurant In West Seattle. My dinner was cold and everything was very salty. Don’t bother getting the Crudo. Couldn’t even taste the Hamachi. Sauce was very acidic. Hopefully, they can fix the problems

The tables are too close together. The person seating us acted put out when we asked to not be squeezed in between two other tables. There was another table upstairs that was available and it was provided to us. I appreciate the challenges of operating a restaurant during Covid but Covid is resurging and I would urge Raccolto to be mindful of the importance of distancing.

This is THE FIRST time I have not given an excellent review for food. The pasta was excellent but the protein (salmon) was most disappointing. It was served skin side up (skin was not crisp) the farro was VERY over sauced and over cooked. Has there been a chef change? Most disappointed to not see the smoked fish crostini. The pasta was excellent but the choice was much more limited than in the past. Still one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. I'll return but hope the changes won't continue to disappoint.

The pasta was very undercooked, crunchy almost except gummy. So we nicely sent it back. They comped$ the pasta and brought another undercooked meal….at least they’re consistent…. Also, it’s summer. I understand the windows being open and whatnot. But the amount of bugs and flys…. It was bad. And before you comment on Al dente’ we know the difference. The table next to us had the same issue. Nice people and staff, just need to get the food part down then the bugs.

As always, Raccolto is the most amazing restaurant in all of west Seattle. A few come close, but there is something special about Raccolto. Food is always perfectly cooked and portioned, excellent service, and great cocktails.

It's a great place where the food and drinks are top-notch. And the service is fantastic -- a great staff. And it's a really good looking restaurant. We were seated by the big roll-up door -- which was up -- and it couldn't have been nicer.

FIrst time back at Raccolto in quite awhile and it was every bit as good as I remembered. Some of the best food anywhere in Seattle or even compared to top places in the Napa Valley where I was recently.

Service was excellent - warm, attentive, casual. Great wine selection. This occassion was special becuase we were celebrating my 50th birtday so we had high standards and expectations. We were delighted. Look forward to returning again soon.

Raccolto never disappoints! Great service (thanks Sarah and Andreas!), amazing appetizers: 1) smoked fish 2) burrata 3) green salad and of course thee pasta is the BEST 1) Radiatori with braised pork, arugula and fava 2) Tonnarelli cacio e pepe - YUM! All topped off by scrumptious ricotta cake and a beautiful red Frapatto from Sicily. We'll be back soon!

No ones fault
Masks interfere with servers disposition
Forgot drink order- no biggy
Want us to order all at once, I wasn’t ready and we weren’t ordering meat dishes… could of phrased it as, ok I’ll get the appetizer in but if considering steak or chicken, they can take 40 min.

Anyway, we’ll come back if you let us
