The gnocchi is amazing! We got right in, but got there shortly after 5:15. It was a cute little place. The olive oil you get with the bread is so so good.

Been coming here for almost 20 years. Just a great low key, non-pretentious Italian spot. This was my favorite place in Seattle when I lived there and now that I have moved, I am always sure to make a trip here. I always get the...More

Boring, out of date pasta house, with the same dishes I saw in a small town 'family style' joint in the 1980s. Yeah, it's cheap, but spend just a little more somewhere else for something that's actually worth leaving the house for. Or just stay...More
