    Excellent service, squishy tables next to one another, noise volume is high, space is small and was overly warm. We did a essentially tasting menu of all their items. It was lots of food but we didn’t really enjoy many of the dishes. It was nicely presented, food was generous sizes but it wasn’t for us. I doubt we’d be back. However some dishes were pretty tasty.

    I would pay that money for these dishes any day! Fresh, flavorful, robust flavors. I know how much time and effort it takes for each dish and let’s just say it’s well worth getting a reservation. Dry all the pasta dishes and share them

    The tasting menu is an amazing idea because you get to sample absolutely everything from the menu. The service was almost telepathic and warm. All in all the food was mid.

    We have dined all over Seattle and this was the worst experience we’ve had so far. The food is so highly overrated. We did a sample of the menu and we would not recommend a single thing. The poor waitress was very kind and knowledgeable of the mouthful of a menu however. The restaurant is just small and crowded. If you want some delicious pasta, good ambience and a far more approachable atmosphere, and even a possible city view, go The Pink Door. Double check your reservation time too if you happen to change it on OpenTable. They will not receive the update, apparently.

    I usually don't do food/restaurants reviews because it's a waste of time. But anyone reading this, please go! It is a little pricey but it is so worth it. The food is delicious, the service is excellent. The restaurant vibe is really chill. The entrance to the restaurant is a little bit tight, no room really to wait but it is so good! 10/10

    Check in was unpleasant, small crowded entrance made it hard to stand without putting you behind at the seated guests so my behinds was slammed by the door to avoid my behind at someone. We got there about 15min early for our rsvp and was asked to go to their sister restaurant next door bc we were early, understandable but there were a couple empty tables. Had to walk out in the rain and repeated the process at Alturi-their sister restaurant next door. Finally sat down and got comfortable then the restaurant hostess let us know our dinner table was ready. Turned out those empty tables earlier were for us, but we had to walk all over and in the rain earlier. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable of menu. Food was good but on the pricey side for their portion. Apps were della casa & ciponllini, primi salvia & ragu…salvia was very good, secondi was anatra was good but pricy, dessert was huckleberry ice cream & was yummy. Overall food was good, but most likely wouldn’t return due to loud atmosphere, table set up seemed clustered and unpleasant checked in.

    Food and service was lovely. Great Atmosphere, warm energy that was very inviting. The Kohlrabi salad was exceptional. Tajarin with sage butter was seasoned well and the pasta was cooked well. It was on the brink of a little dry, but I was chatty so that may be on me hah! I would love to return with friends or a nice date.

    What a gem! Northern Italian cuisine…no tomato based sauces…which results in a lighter dish with more flavors. We sat at the bar (recommended) and watched pasta being freshly made while we dined.

    Excellent service, romantic vibe. Highlight of the meal was the appetizer, CIPOLLINI RIPIENI, Roasted cipollini onions stuffed with beef and pork sausage with carmelized onion sauce and toasted pine nuts. Absolutely delicious! The pastas were “just ok”. I’m not a fan of the tajarin pasta as it’s so delicate and thin that when it cools, it solidifies into somewhat of a ball and the noodles stick together and creates poor texture. The braised wild boar was flavorful and the gnocchi pillow was a nice companion, making it a solid choice for comfort food entree. The barolo-braised beef cheek was extremely salty and much too rich to finish. Overall, it was a romantic evening with outstanding service and better than average food but there are much better choices in Seattle.

    This restaurant has a long track record and enduring reputation to live up to. We had a first seating at 5pm, and the restaurant felt already lively and ready to go. The famous hand-cut egg noodles were underway, and on display. The waitress was energetic, knowledgeable and guided us with enthusiasm to buoy our menu choices. The clear winners were the cipollini stuffed onions - rich, bursting with flavor, and seared just so...a dish you could consume at least once weekly, even. The beef cheeks were perfect, with their hearty depth of character highlighted by the subtlest, most velvety celery velouté. And finally - the cavatelli was overly addictive. Of course we dove into the famous tajarin - both preparations served up to expectations, with the ragu a slight front runner for its bolder flavor. I would relish a return, and being able to sidle up to the bar for a glass of wine, some cipollinis and a shared cavatelli soon again.

    I think that if the reserved table is ready, front of house should allow guests to sit. The inflexibility of having guests wait for the exact minute is quite unfriendly, not just to me but other guests with reservations had the same opinion. It shows poor hospitality, and the way we were informed that we cannot sit until the exact minute was quite rude.

    This was some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had. They told us when we first sat down not to expect a lot of red sauces. I appreciated the warning. The servers were unobtrusive, but very attentive. We chose the fixed menu, which I liked because then I didn’t have to choose which dishes not to try. It was a lot of food but they gave us take out boxes for the leftovers.
