This was the best Italian we’ve ever had! Absolutely outstanding.
Beautiful food, exceptional service and special as always.
Simply the best pasta in and around Seattle. Try to visit to Truffle season for the best ever!
Delicious food with a great atmosphere. Friendly and attentive service. Restaurant is set up in a way that gave us a sense of comfort while dining during these unusual pandemic times.
Just visited Spinasse for the third time in a year so this review is a culmination of all three experiences.
Oct 2019 was our first visit for our wedding anniversary. It fell on a Saturday so I made the reservation 6+ weeks in advance because it was near impossible to get a weekend slot! The meal was unbelievable and so memorable. The ambiance was romantic but in a rustic, cozy, and elegant way rather than a stuffy and uptight way. We loved the wine and cocktails and the ability to see past the bar into the kitchen where the pastas were being made. We had a beef bruschetta app with a fonduta cheese sauce that makes me salivate over a year later. The major bummer is the menu is seasonal so who knows if they will ever get it back?? Everything we had was SO delicious but the simple sage and butter pasta is the star. Tastes like grown up mac & cheese and we nearly licked the plate clean.
Jan 2020 we attended a private holiday party. It was gorgeous and intimate and the food was outstanding again.
Oct 2020 we visited again for our anniversary. A definite shift in ambiance with all of the COVID measures in place but we were just thankful to get to have a real date in a real restaurant. We came on a Monday and the vibe is much more casual (lots of walk ins) so it feels a bit less exclusive. My two disappointments were: no bruschetta option as a starter. We got the crepes which were great but neither of us is a big fan of mushrooms. We were also disappointed that one of the two veggie side options (tomatoes) were unavailable that evening, leaving only the kale. I normally am a kale fan but I'm currently pregnant and the baby inside me is NOT. So we ordered and extra salad which was good as well. Do not miss the beef cheek entree!
loved the vibe, service was very nice and the food was delicious
Great dining on the "patio". We had a sampling of several of the antipasti and pastas. The best pasta in Seattle; always freshly made and with mouth watering sauces. You can't go wrong here--everything is delicious.
Awesome restaurant, definitely best Italian in Seattle!
Spinasse is my favorite restaurant in Seattle. It is great for special occasions and all of the pasta dishes are phenomenal. I try to take anyone who is visiting from out of town.
Food was good but options are limited plus they didn't allow any substitutions even for food restrictions so I was only able to eat half of my meal. Service was poor largely due to hyper inflexibility. I won't return.
Best restaurant in Seattle, excellent food, service and ambiance. Highly recommend
Overall, food was pretty mediocre besides the bell peppers. Overpriced for small portion of food that didn't even taste that good. Wouldn't recommend.
Thoroughly enjoyed dinner this evening. Food and service were excellent as usual. We have yet to find anything we wouldn't order again.
The food was delicious, and they are extra cautious about Covid exposure offering only outdoor seating and requiring masks with each interaction. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful.
Best Italian restaurant in Seattle. GM Angela has built a fantastic Italian wine list. We are outside after a rain that cleared out the smoke.
A group from work decided to do the menu tasting with wine pairing, and it was gloriously gluttonous. Excellent service, and the meal was delicious.
I love the food at Spinasse. I gave it 4 star only do to their Covid rules. I understand wearing a mask to come in and get seated. The restaurant is seated at 50% capacity. Great. But the host asked us to wear a mask every time the waiter came to our table. So, basically I was mask on mask off... i was literally on the look out for the waiter. I couldn’t relax. Probably won’t go back until things get a bit more relaxed.
I have been wanting to check out Spinasse for quite some time, and it exceeded my already high expectations. Even during these weird Covid times, I was impressed with the amount of effort Spinasse made to make my dining experience as safe and sanitary as possible. But on to the food, everything was delicious! The best meal of the evening was the pasta with braised short rib. Service was also very helpful!
Great food. Great service. Very kind and thoughtful about the safety of their patrons.
I am newish to Seattle and had only experienced Spinasse to go and was so fired up to eat at the restaurant. Mind blown. Butter and sage took me to a dreamland. Everything was spectacular. They even let us order off a super secret dessert menu. I'm not telling what it was. You'll have to find out for yourself
What a great experience! Fantastic meal. We will eat here again and I recommend you do as well.
Spinasse is doing an excellent job at creating a positive customer experience during the pandemic. We've been twice because we value the way they are keeping customers and staff safe.
The waitstaff was very nice and professional. The food was very delicious and I recommend going!
I’ve been trying to get a reservation for almost a year. Finally got in for my birthday. Was not disappointed. Note this was during COVID so we were seated outside on the side street, so the ambience wasn’t amazing and the street was noisy, but it didn’t ruin a wonderful night. We started with the grape, blue cheese and radicchio salad. Then we had the cavatelli pasta with short rib ragu. Then the rabbit meatballs with creamy polenta. Finally, the panacotta with fresh nectarines. Every dish was fresh and flavorful. My husband and I shared everything and enjoyed every bite. The staff were friendly, gracious and attentive without smothering. I really appreciated the mask wearing enforcement for us and the staff. We had a wonderful night and I can’t wait to take friends back!
Decent happy hour pricing but food was nothing to write home about.
The food was amazing!!! We felt very safe during this time of the pandemic.
Great as always!
The service And atmosphere was great. Cute restaurant with a friendly and helpful staff. After reading the reviews I was expecting better food. The salad was flooded with salt, pork shoulder was fatty; however the sauce was tasty.
Delicious food, perfect spot!
Love this place. They take safety during this covid time very seriously, but they were never rude about it. The food was excellent and the outdoor seating was great.
Spinasse is one of the Best Italian Restaurants in Seattle!
I understand that it is very hard to provide an excellent experience given these times. However throughout the night we felt that the service was downright off, especially when they offered us a doggy bag box that was full of some goopy slime (it was butter) but when I pointed this out they almost refused to believe me at first or even look at it, and then after looking at it said, it’s only butter. Then they finally brought me another box that had an oil stain on it as well but I didn’t want to make a fuss. It was our first time dining out since the pandemic and it was to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday at one of his favorite restaurant. But I don’t they read the note I had left in preparation for our meal. Regardless, they make wonderful pasta and we’ll most likely be back
Amazing! The tajarin was perfect, and the maiale had such delicately balanced flavors. Best restaurant in Seattle!
The Team at Spinasse continue to impress. Beautiful menu, delicious fare, so many options. Looking forward to our next visit.
I love this restaurant. I brought my husband here for the 1st time. Everything was good. The pastas, wines, service and cocktails are incredible. I was a bit disappointed in the food this particular experience. It was good but not as outstanding as I'd remembered.
Always on point, never disappoints. The butter sage noodles are maybe the single best simple dish in Seattle.
Food and service were amazing. I am only rating ambience and noise levels lower because we sat at a table on Pine around the corner from the restaurant. It felt like you were shuffled off. I will blame that all on the crazy times we are living in. But our waiter was amazing and the food was sublime/perfect as always!
We always received amazing service when we are here. We came for my fiancé’s birthday and Angela walked us over to our table. She is super personable and easy to talk to. Our waiter, who I can’t remember his name remembered it was my fiancé’s birthday and was really kind as he always is. Thanks for your safe service during this time.
When dining outside one loses the ambience and increases the noise level. But, the service and food were great as usual.
Once again Spinasse delivered a great experience and excellent food. Their Covid-19 safety precautions were strictly enforced, which I deeply appreciated. It didn't impact our dining experience at all. I can't wait to go back!
