    Spinasse is one of the very best restaurants in Seattle. The food as delicious; the service impeccable; and although fairly expensive, worth every penny. Also I like that the tax and tip are included in the price. I understand that the staff are paid very well.

    Highly recommend! First time in Seattle and this was an excellent start. Everyone was attentive to us, as it seemed for all guests. When I asked about the cocktails Eric was very descriptive. Some guests order without knowledge of the item and then are surprised when they don't enjoy it. That drives me nuts. We loved our cocktail choices. Eric then offered to explain the menu and how it was centered around Northern Italy. We made a reservation and when arrived, asked if we could sit at the bar in front of the kitchen. They were super kind about the change from a table to the bar seating. Bar seating is first come. Tables are by reservation. Every dish was phenomenal, order the beef and pork sausage stuffed cipollini onions with caramelized onion brodo and pine nuts. Also ordered the Agnolotti and the Tajarin con burro e salvia-> signature fine hand-cut egg yolk pasta with cultured butter and sage. Dessert was the Torta Allo Yogurt e Limone, Lemon yogurt cake with mint poppy gelato and huckleberry sauce. Ordered it for the mint poppy gelato, delish. Thank you to the server who brought me soda water when she noticed I had spilled sauce on my sweater. Again very attentive and much appreciated. She checked in on entrees and brought dessert. Everyone was kind to let me take so many photos of the atmosphere and pasta station. Hope to be back again, in the meantime I'll be telling everyone I meet to eat at Spinasse! Remember, keep the bread to to dip in the delicious sauces!

    We tried the tasting menu for Valentine's day and it was outstanding. Here is a summary of some of the items in the tasting menu: - The Bomboloni with fonduta and ragu di carne was delicious. The Bombolini had some kind of creamy sauce which combined with the Ragu di carne made for a delicious combination. - The Pork spiedini with mushrooms and brodo di maiale was one of the highlights. The pork was grilled and had a smoky taste to it, and when mixed with the broth created a very delicious taste. - Their Tajarin with monkfish was good but I would say that the Lasagna with prosciutto cotto, bechamel and taleggio was a better choice. I've been to Spinasse several times in the past, but I had never gone to the restaurant while they were offering the tasting menu. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend the restaurant regardless of the menu. The pasta is just so delicious and so fresh that it's worth a visit just for that.

    Spinasse is truly a wonderful dining experience. Don't miss it! The squash from the appetizer menu is divine and the pastas we tried were all spectacular. The desserts are also incredible, go hungry!

    The food was neat and of good quality. As an Italian I can say that it is close to the original one... the portions are not abundant but I can understand in the search for quality you have to sacrifice quantity. We were served by a waitress with short hair and glasses who reminded me, negatively, of Italian restaurants where you often find unpleasant and unkind waiters. In America it is more difficult but she was this type. Very cold and unhelpful to us but I saw her smile at the other tables. How come? Why are we foreigners and don't speak perfectly? But we are Italian and then you shouldn't work in a place like this. Very good Tajarin but too much butter. The real tajarin must never be mushy... Compliments for the food but because of the waitress we will not return again.

    I have been hearing and reading about spinasse for years and was very much looking forward to my meal there. I do a lot of cooking, so maybe that’s why my family was unimpressed. The best dishes were the appetizers (we had a bit of everything, loved the stuffed cipolline and the squash salad). The pastas were a little overdone and the sauces were bland. The pork chop was also bland though the veggies were very fresh. Beef cheek, no depth or complexity. I think at this point that, except for the appetizers, the restaurant is riding on its reputation, or maybe it’s that we don’t drink a lot so we really taste our food. In either case, noone in our party was impressed, and in fact, we were a bit sad as this was a special occasion.

    Terrible service. The waitress was very rude and curt. She clearly did not enjoy serving us which made us very confused. Not expecting any crazy service but it was below average if not the worst. They forgot to give us our togo meal and the employees glared at us as if we were loitering.

    I’d like to see more protein options. The pork chops were fine, average but no Italian flavors or prep style…just pork chop on top of veggies. There are other preparations that speak Italian for pork, this isn’t it. Yes, wait staff is robotic in some aspects such as letting you know your table time is limited and you must be ready to order everything at once. Just seems cold for fine dining. I’ve been to Spinasse several times and this time just felt cold. The noise level is high, even at 5:15pm … perhaps it was our server who felt cold and put off by 2 women - not that she wasn’t nice, just robotic and a bit cold towards us.

    WONDERFUL food. The “amuse-bouche” is always a welcome treat. Stuffed Cippollini were outstanding, as was the prosciutto. every time we come we order the the tarjin w butter & sage (large portion). Mushrooms were perfect. Abd a second pasta and Frattelli Barolo. We enjoy Spinasse. Grazie tanti!

    Compared to previous experiences, this one was inconsistent. Overly smothering service at the beginning of the meal - attempting to clear plates while we were clearly still eating, then once the restaurant became busier, tried to flag our server down to no avail. Would’ve liked to order another glass of wine to have when our secondi arrived but was basically done eating by the time the server came back to the table. We had the pork chop and found it to be surprisingly dry. The timing of courses was off throughout. Disappointing experience and have had better at other times here.

    The food was fresh and delicious and the service was quick and friendly. The restaurant was quiet enough for me to have an easy conversation with my 80 year old mother. The bar seating looked great for dining by yourself, which I do often. So I will definitely be a returning customer.
