I had high expectations of this restaurant, as according to Zagat it is the best restaurant in Seattle. I was underwhelmed by its food (safe but lacking punch) and service: they were good, but not memorable, and substandard when compared to some of the great...More

I celebrated a birthday today with a friend who shares the same birthday month and it was lovely. We had a seafood capelli along with a farro/greens salad with pan-seared halibut. Everything was delicious and the service was really attentive.

If you love traditional Italian fare, you will never be disappointed by this place. White mess coated waiters, white tablecloths, flowers on every table, this long time Seattle favorite has a well-earned reputation for excellence in every way. They really know how to do veal...More
