Il Terrazzo Carmine, owned and operated by Carmine Smeraldo, is one of Seattle's true dining anomalies - a highly successful restaurant with unfailingly high standards and a loyal, sophisticated clientele. The cuisine has been acclaimed as Seattle's best by the media and more importantly, by local diners.
Il Terrazzo Carmine is located in historic Pioneer Square - nestled in an urban-renewed alley with entrances through the vintage lobby on First Avenue or through the delightful courtyard in the back. Since 1984, Carmine Smeraldo's classic Italian restaurant has been where the locals have chosen to return over and over again. From the Carpaccio Di Bue and Spaghettini Dell 'Ortolano for lunch to the Suprema Di Pollo Farcita and Zuppa Di Pesce for dinner you will know you have gone to a place where excellence is a way of life. Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Seattle, Il Terrazzo serves classical Italian cuisine with an atmosphere you may want to call home and never leave

    Our server, Mike and his assistant (I’m sorry I didn’t catch his name) were top notch. We came on a very busy night, but they kept their cool, composure and communicated well. Thank you, we’ll be back.

    We were seated in the outdoor area and it was really pleasant. Server was great, and the food was as well. This was a special day to celebrate my husband’s birthday and it could not have been nicer. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    I have been to Carmines several times, I have celebrated birthdays, graduations, even came here for my wedding shower. So when my bestfriend wanted to go out to dinner for her birthday Carmines was my first thought. I made a reservation and when I realized we were going to be late due to obscene amount of traffic (Pres Biden was in town + Mariners traffic) It was a nightmare. I'm usually super prompt and hate being late, when we arrived I was very apologetic. We were told we had to hurry and order due to the kitchen being closed, so we hurried and ordered. Where it started to go down hill for me is when they started cleaning up and turning lights off literally AROUND US. I mean we had the ambiance for a total of maybe 10 mins before they started basically closing the restaurant down, when I got my bill I still tipped GREAT, and when we went to walk out we were literally walking with the bar staff saying their goodbyes to the coworkers and complaining about their feet and that they were glad to be off. Hear me out, I understand their is a closing time, but when you have decided to accommodate a guest no matter the time customer service should always remain the top priority, and that may at times look like having to stay a little later.. after a $200 bill we just felt rushed and felt for the first time that I didn't receive the Carmine's experience that I am used to.
