Got the beef tenderloin primo course, brown lentils, tajarin pasta with ragu and huckleberry semifreddo for dessert. Everything was good but the lentils were really incredible. The other outstanding dish was the semifreddo.

I chose this restaurant because of its outstanding rating on OpenTable. I was not disappointed. Rarely do things live up to the hype but this restaurant did. Every item that our table ordered was delicious and magical. Our food server was knowledgeable and friendly. Go to this restaurant!!!!

Food sharing between 5 people was perfect. Pastas were outstanding. Rabbit meatball and beef cheeks were really tasty. Food value was on point with every course.


Wine service was good, but the overhead on the wines is excessive. Overall fabulous experience, but be prepared for wine cost shock.

We love this restaurant! We had not been in awhile, so it was nice to celebrate our 60th birthdays and our 35th anniversary there. Food and wine were wonderful.

The food was great. While pictures may make the servings look small, the pasta is surprisingly dense. Very good, ordered an appetizer and two whole pasta dishes and left very full.

Hand made pasta was delicious, food and service was great. Prepare to spend some money though; all the wine is very pricy. Overall would go back again.

The food was incredible. We had wine marinated beef cheeks and rabbit meatballs with a pasta first course. Our waiter, Luis, was great. His service made the meal memorable and he is one of the best waiters we have ever been served by. We loved our date night out at a great restaurant.

Dinner was delicious. But would recommend less formality....example...when we received our dessert, before the waitress released her hold on the desserts, she described to us each dessert, We knew what we had ordered. We felt that she should just deliver our dessert, with no lengthy presentation, and she should depart. Let us enjoy our time there. Restaurant fills up. Many waiters deliver your food, not just the initial waiter. Would go back.

Had a great time, as always, at Spinasse. Noticed that the food came out not quite as warm as I'd have liked it this time. All the same, delicious food and preparation, great pairings, great wine, sweet service. Will definitely be back and continue to recommend to friends.

The food was amazing! Great place to eat. The only thing I could say negative is that the waitress suggested that we add truffle to our pasta, which was amazing but she did not bother to tell us that would be additional $35.00 dollars to add it to our pasta. So when we got our bill which was already expensive we were a little surprised to see what she suggested cost that much extra.

We went here after seeing it on a cooking show review. The atmosphere was great, wine and food were better than great.

Definitely make a reservation as this is a small place that only takes reservations as they fill up.

I was visiting from Boston and a friend recommended I must go to Spinasse. It did not disappoint! Upon walking through the door, I felt transported to a trattoria in Italy. The place is charming, and very romantic. The pastas are all made fresh, and they literally melt in your mouth. Make sure to leave room for the tiramisu for dessert as it’s one of the best I’ve had in a while. I can’t wait to return to Spinasse on my next visit to Seattle. Definitely a top 10 dining experience!
