    Booooo. Extremely slight portions of proteins or sauces on every dish = poor value. Examples: 1. pappardelle with meat ragu = 1 Tablespoon of sauce and meat. 2. Prawns and pasta had 2 small prawns cut into six pieces and kitchen apologizes because there should have been 3 prawns cut into 9 pieces. Hahahahaha come on. 3. 3 scallops - not jumbo scallops on an entree plate as the entree with a Tablespoon and a half of rice and 2 pine nuts halved. 4. 3 chicken meatballs in a huge bowl of spaghetti with no sauce, it was tossed in sauce and put into the bowl and was dry. Our dinners and desserts were served 15 minutes apart. We waited 20 minutes after being seated to even be acknowledged and that wasn’t even by our server. Our server was sweet but there is clearly no team here. Overall the pasta was good but he value is terrible and two dishes were grossly over salted while one had no seasoning at all. The scallops weren’t properly seared on both sides resulting in slightly under cooked centers. To round out amateur night they hyped a champagne gelato which one would assume the champagne is poured over the top, after we ordered and expected to see it on the table after a 20 minute wait, the rest of the desserts were brought and our friend was then told they couldn’t giver her that dessert because the champagne didn’t freeze. Well duh. The spicy Rigatoni was the only really good dish on the menu. The wine list is very good but with a 110-125% markup so be prepared. As a lover of great food, a defender of great restaurants... I must say... Unless you are dying to part with $100 per person for mediocrity, go somewhere else!

    I have been here a couple of times and enjoy it. The Burrata cheese appetizer was very good but the tonnarelli pasta was a bit too al dente, sauce was great. We had half bottle of Amarone but glasses smelled of bleach. Server was very nice and rinsed the glasses so we could enjoy the wine.

    A decent value for a standard, Italian Ethan Stowell meal. Nice restaurant tucked away inside Belltown.

    What a wonderful restaurant! This has been one of my favorite spots in the city, and when we chose to go here for New Years Eve, it did not disappoint. The pre fixe menu was amazing, and the wine pairing was perfect. The food was delicious and the staff attentive. Will be back again and again!

    Overall, our experience was very good. My wife and I went for NYE dinner. First and foremost, the food was very good. Things were generally well-timed, occasionally on the slow side, even though we dined really early. Each dish of the prix fixe menu was well conceived, decent portion size, and well prepared. Nothing blew our minds, but nothing was bad at all. The real issues were non-food related. We were seated in an upstairs section near a window and it was incredibly cold. The people next to us were shivering and I myself was extremely cold. We mentioned it to our server but there wasn’t much she could do. Every other table was reserved. The other odd thing was the music selection. It seemed to be a collection of 90s R&B / hip hop jams. From Ginuwine’s “Pony” to TLC’s “Waterfalls,” each song was weirder than the last. Anyway, the food was very good. Service was lacking a little and slow, which was even more annoying due to a pre-set 20% added gratuity. The ambiance was okay with mildly inappropriate music for a nice NYE dinner.

    My wife and I ate here for "date night" Saturday and loved the food! Everything we ate we enjoyed tremendously -- roasted beets, beef carpaccio, pappardelle, and the scallops. My personal fave was the roasted beets, served with whipped ricotta cheese and pistachios, and my wife loved the scallops, served with creamed farro and hazelnut. Prices moderately expensive but this is Belltown after all. Service quick and our server was happy to stick around answering all of our questions about the food. Only downer was that my glass of wine, a sangiovese, was a little bitter -- hopefully the bottles are better. Trendy atmosphere, good amount of noise but wasn't disturbed my any of the chatty neighbors or the Radiohead playing on the stereo. We will revisit!

    We visit Seattle 3-4 times per year and always eat at Tavolata at least twice! It is our favorite restaurant in Seattle (and that is saying a lot considering the competition).
