    For our 20th anniversary we let the chef choose for us by ordering the chef’s choice special 4-course meal for two, and we were not disappointed. We especially loved the purple potatoes and mushrooms appetizer. Everything we were brought was delicious, but we also especially loved the scallops protein course and the financier cake dessert that came with mocha gelato and toffee crumbles. The portions were perfect, and we were nearly able to eat all of what was brought out—only the pasta course we asked to have some put in a to go box.

    Restaurant Week Means Special Menu Only While we enjoyed most of our meal, I certainly wish it had been made clear (when making reservations) that we could only order the special 3 course meal. I am gluten free and have a few other food restrictions. The special menu was difficult for me.

    We order three-course dinner for the restaurant week. Their appetizers were good, but the main course (seafood and pork belly) are very salty and oily. Desserts are just very ordinary and nothing special or surprised us. Overall we are very disappointed.

    We had a special birthday dinner on a Saturday night. The power went out at the restaurant and they called us to cancel our reservation as they couldn’t open. Later the power came back on. We worked it all out and they were able to seat us and get their kitchen up and ready. Restaurant Week fixed price menu was excellent. Four tasty starters and a choice between Cioppino or pasta with pea pods. Great drinks, wonderful food and a delightful atmosphere!

    Went for dinner and it was Restaurant Week. Decent menu but the apps were the stars. Super flavorful and unique options that were well portioned. Rockfish crudo was interesting and my least fav of the 4 apps. The cucumber rhubarb salad was so fresh and delicious. The asparagus was yummy as was the burrata on crostini. The entrees were good to excellent. The pasta was delicious and properly cooked with just the right amount of sauce. It was a cream sauce with fresh chopped peas-really great! The Cioppino had good flavor, but it lacked any fish (that was an additional $20+) so it was really just shrimp, mussels and clams. It was also a fairly small portion compared to the pasta entree and the third option, the Pork belly. We didn't order the pork belly, but it looked good and a healthy portion as we saw others order it. What is becoming standard in Seattle is overpriced cocktails. Raccolto is on trend here. I ordered an Aperol spritz that was fine-but not $17 fine, more like $12 fine. Not really a complaint but an observation that drinks are not well priced when compared to the rest of the menu. Dessert was decent but lacked something-we got the lemon tart dessert, and one was lemon and had a nice, toasted meringue on top and the other a custard, but it was less than flavorful. Our bill was $145 for two. I would like to go back and sit at the cute quaint bar and experience their original menu. The dining area is great if you get a booth but the tables in the middle seemed a little cramped. The waitstaff was very attentive and nice. Overall, it was a nice experience, and I will likely go back.

    Excellent food and service. May need to book in advance, but we went on Sunday night and it seems to have seats avaible. The price is on the bit more expensive side - we spent total of $160 for two, but the food was very good.

    Raccolto usually has really great food, but this was plain disappointing. The rockfish crudo fell flat. There was no acid on the plate and the fish was poorly seasoned. My husbands rabbit pasta was great, but my Tonnarelli stuck together like ramen noodles and ate like it too. The pork belly was egregiously overcooked, as was the risotto. The risotto was watery and overcooked to the point that that i had to ask what grain they had used, as it was so overcooked it was mushy and gross. The bay leaf panna cotta was lovely, except the lemon cookies had been refrigerated too long and were stale and mushy at the same time. So disappointed that 3 of 4 dishes were terrible.

    food was delicious as always. almond butter last time we were here and hazelnut butter this time- very strange and throw-away spread for a very expensive four slices of focaccia. $16 negroni glass was less than 1/4 of the way full- was comical! partner ordered an americano cocktail which is a negroni without gin (soda water instead)- also $16! lastly, i asked for a wine list when finishing our appetizer and server didn't come back until after i had already started eating my main course. as i said, very great food. but very expensive, appears to be cutting corners, up-charging for silly things and service does not match the price you're paying. bummer.

    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.
