We were looking for Italian and found this place just driving past. Excellent and attentive service. They make their own ginger beer and it was very good. A must try! We had Calamari which was very crispy and nicely done. The sauce went well with it. We shared a meatball with Angel Hair pasta. Tasty and very authentic Italian. It's... More

A lot of people a thursday night but people left about 8 o clock so the place did not feel crowded. Fish starters was very good but the antipasta fish dish for 17 USD provided little food. Canneloni and Tagiatelli next was OK but not excellent. A bottle of wine with that got us up to 130 USD for two.

Wonderful restaurant in the heart of downtown Seattle. Great restaurant for a special occasion or a quiet night out to dinner. Seating for 2 people was kind of cramped, at least in the section we were in.

It's good. Very competent Italian food. But we went extended periods of time where we were ignored. So I'm not sure how I feel about this place. I had spaghetti bolognese. It was very good. The bread is good. The iced tea was very good. Like I said, very competent Italian food. Not much more. All things considered, probably over... More

We dined here on our first night in Seattle and the food was delicious. I had the medallion steak and pasta, and it was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Desserts were unbelievable! Highly recommend dining here!

In the ground floor of high-rise Pacific Place a half mile E of the waterfront. Hadn't eaten there in a half dozen years. My wife and I stopped in for what we hoped would be a quick meal before a concert. Tony, upscale decor, heavily staffed, comfortable seating, quiet. We ordered a pizza and house salad, $36 with tip.

So happy we stumbled upon this place. First time in Seattle and ended up eating here for dinner the first night. Service was quick. We were sat right away. Bottled water and bread with olive oil and balsamic were brought out within minutes of sitting down. Our server was amazing! So sweet. Spaghetti with meatballs was flavorful. Chicken with potatoes...

This is the first Italian restaurant that I have visited which had an extensive gluten free menu and not just tasteless gf spaghetti! Enjoyed the food and appreciated the good service. Great place for friends, family or business.
