Made a reservation, and got a nice table. There was no wait on a Tuesday night, so reservation unneeded. Came for an anniversary, and ready to splurge a little. Prices weren't outrageous; $175 for two with appetizer, drinks, entrees, desert, and tip. My wife was super impressed by her meal (wild boar ravioli), and commented she wanted to go back the next night and have it again. My seafood pasta was very good, and very filling. Service was attentive, without being annoying. Atmosphere was quiet; people enjoying their meals and quietly socializing. No regrets, except maybe eating a bit too much.

One of our favorite local places. The food was excellent as always and the service was outstanding; the perfect balance of attentiveness and personality. We were encouraged to try the coconut cream dolce for dessert and boy was it divine. Our new favorite. Love that this place is so close and so delicious!

Pioneer Square
About the restaurant
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

About the restaurant
The chefs at Marzano's attain the freshest ingredients to prepare authentic Italian cuisine. Owner Elisa Marzano grew up in Vicenza, Italy, and consistently refers to these roots to design Marzano's unique yet classic menu. Once a quaint two-bedroom home, the restaurant was transformed but still keeps the rustic, home-like feel for an inviting, welcoming atmosphere. The pleasing combination of intimate lighting and natural window light make it the ideal spot for either lunch or dinner. A top menu choice is the boscaiola, which features a creamy tomato and Bolognese sauce over rigatoni pasta, topped with various spices and forest mushrooms. Guests can enjoy complimentary bread and salad with every entree, so eating at Marzano's can ensure a satisfied appetite. Marzano's also aims to please those with various dietary needs, such as diners who desire gluten-free options.

Not gonna lie here but the cost of Restaurant meals are outrageous and if you are going to splurge then you want the food and service to be TOP quality and that is what you get from Marzano's! You will not be disappointed. As a bonus you are not charged for Bread or your salad which although simple, a bed of greens, the dressing makes you want to lick the plate. Pay special attention to the specials, if you hear one makes your mouth water, GET IT!

Bellevue
About the restaurant
From the owners of Il Terrazzo Carmine, one of Seattle"s most iconic and beloved establishments, comes Carmine's Bellevue. Carmine's Bellevue brings to the east side the same level of quality in service, food, and ambiance that has made its sister restaurant a true institution in Downtown Seattle. Located at 88 102nd Avenue in Bellevue's historic Old Bellevue neighborhood, Carmines is nestled against Bellevue Park. With a rustic, timeless interior, Carmine's provides patrons an escape from the increasingly urbanized way of life. Upscale and elegant, Carmine's feels anything but stiff and pretentious. Good for business meetings, special occasions, or simply dining with loved ones, Carmine's Bellevue is a true destination on the east side.
