We were seated in the back room with the door open on a very hot evening. It's not as cozy as the main dining room but was probably a lot quieter for conversation. Despite the variety on the menu, I ordered the eggplant parmesan again and it was wonderful. Squash blossoms and prosciutto bruschetta were fresh and tasty too. Many dishes can be adjusted for gluten free.

Service was warm and friendly. The pasta vongole had little flavor, the Caesar Salad was mediocre, the white wine wasn't really cold. Last time I was there I had pesto pasta and didn't care for it either. The gelato was outstanding! The back room is comfortable but the food isn't impressive.

We had a wonderful dinner experience at Risibisi for our anniversary celebration. No complaints, just compliments for the service, food, wine, cocktails and apricot sorbet. An absolute 5 star experience.

The ambiance was a little thick and heavy to my taste - dark, rough brick walls with dark wood supports I found oppressive rather than festive; the tables are very close together and the area we were seated in was very narrow. Other than that, it was fabulous! The waiter was very helpful with my food allergies and preferences, and our meals were grand! And the flourless chocolate cake for dessert!!! Oh my - usually they're dense and somewhat dry. This was like a somewhat-more-solid chocolate-rich pudding. Every bite was heavenly.

I was meeting family from out of town and had previously made a reservation. Family was running late and the staff was not worried about it and very accommodating. As soon as they arrived, we were taken care of warmly and quickly. Food was great, we all having ordered various items from the dinner menu. I would go back again and recommend Risibisi to friends and family. Well done!

This was our first dining experience at Risibisi, definitely not our last. The food is excellent, each bite! Everything, from the service to the ambiance was wonderful. I think it's my new favorite restaurant!

We've eaten at Risibisi many, many times. It's one of my wife's favorite restaurants in fact. Collectively, we felt that this was one of our best meals there ever. Marco and the team are on top of all aspects without being intrusive during the meal. We asked for a more richly flavored wine from the Italian list and Marco sent his wine buyer over to find the perfect bottle. The best part of the whole night was our guest is a restaurant owner who wins honors annually in the greater Seattle are. She too was duly impressed. We can highly recommend the pasta, the fish and the meat dishes. The Caesar salad is wonderful and on this night two of us had the wonderful Ahi carpaccio as our first course. You can't go wrong at Risibisi and you'll most certainly have a wonderful meal.

We've been to Risibisi several times, and I was disappointed this time. There seemed to be fewer vegetarian choices than I remembered, and what we got was not great. The burrata appetizer was ok; too much bread. We asked for the vegetarian version of a risotto with peas, which we shared. We both thought it tasted meaty, and there were suspicious pink bits... the server assured us it was vegetarian but... hmmm. The mini-doughnut dessert was great though.
Overall, not my best Risibisi experience. The service, as always, was fabulous, and it's a very pleasant place. So I still like Risibisi, but maybe a little less than before. I'd be more inclined to recommend it to meat-eaters than to vegetarians.

I found this place online, just hoping it would fit the bill. It was perfect for a birthday. The food was great. I ordered in courses, antipasti, salads and then a wonderful pasta dish. It was just enough to have dessert.
Tyler the server was awesome, great selection in wines for each course.

We went for a birthday lunch on Sunday. We were the only party there for the first 15 minutes or so, then people started trickling in, so it was pleasantly quiet and comfortable. The service was thoughtful and efficient, and the food was delicious. I'm so happy I ordered the spaghetti with pancetta - full-flavored sauce packed with pancetta and diced stuff. On top of that, the portions were very generous. We were very happy diners and would definitely go back!
