    Food took forever to come out, between each course (3) we had to wait at least 15 minutes. We sat with empty cocktails for 20 minutes before we were asked if we wanted another drink. We ordered a bottle of wine, it took 15 minutes for clean wine glasses to be found by the waiter. The food was delicious, but the whole experience was terrible.

    My partner and I came here for date night and loved it! The staff there was extremely friendly, they also took time to explain the different menu items which I appreciated (as an extremely indecisive person). I look forward to coming back some time soon.

    I brought my mom here for an early evening dinner. They were able to accommodate us under their canopied outdoor seating, which was quieter than indoors and nice in the summer weather. We had the Fontina Fonduta (white truffle butter, baguette), Watermelon (ricotta salata, spicy honey, basil), Butter Lettuce (orange, pistachio, champagne vinaigrette), Tagliatelle (foraged mushrooms, garlic, summer truffle), and the tiramisu. Everything was absolutely delicious! The Cure (Mezcal) cocktail was also very well done. Brandon was a wonderful server! The restaurant was out of quite a few of their menu items when we went (at 5:45), but we had looked at the menu ahead of time and were able to get everything we planned for. I will absolutely take others there in the future and would recommend to others. I noticed some reviews said the bill was pricey, but this is to be expected from a restaurant with high quality items and we did not find it unreasonable for the experience, service, or food.

    Noise from road construction was terribly loud. We started with the artichoke hearts, they were a little burnt. We ordered the Rigatoni, it was tasteless, chewy, amateur presentation, we sent it back. We ordered the Tagliatelle pasta. It was a little better, but 1 note, tasteless after a few bites. Pasta was extremely under done. Pretty disappointing for $26.00! Service was friendly, professional.

    Hugo manages the front of the house fantastically. We felt very taken care of by the whole team. It was busy but I saw every table getting what seemed like fantastic personalized service with a smile. The food was really good. The risotto was fantastic! It was my first visit and it was such a cozy welcoming cheerful place. We will definitely come again.

    My favorite Italian restaurant, both food and service were outstanding. Menu changes so there's always something new to try! There were 4 adults and a 4 year old in our group and they made all of us feel special, especially my granddaughter, nice touch. Go and enjoy, we all did😎

    Excellent food and cocktails. Cocktails $17. A bit pricey. One of the waiters was very standoffish and curt when offering us a table and firs several interactions. To his credit he ended up being pleasant. I would go back

    It was an ok dining experience overall. At first good service, nice atmosphere and location. However, we somewhat baffled when we were told to move to the bar to make room for another couple with a reservation while we were still having our after dinner drinks. We also had reservations and we waited for a table. It seemed odd, but I realize it was a busy Saturday night but I don’t remember reading anything about the restaurant having a time limit for diners. Considering the expense, along with that “interruption” we probably won’t be returning.

    Great place for a gathering with old friends. We shared a delicious bottle of red and tried a cocktail that was well crafted. The pizzas came out hot and crispy and the burrata was quite tasty! Can’t wait to visit again when we come back to Seattle.

    First time here and loved it. Service was great. We knew our server from another restaurant and it made the meal even better. Menu is short and the food is excellent. We heard there is a new chef so we will follow on Instagram to see how much better this restaurant becomes. Looking forward to coming back.

    Service was great. We ordered the mussels. Our waiter came back and told us they ran out. We later added the special of the day, pan seared cod. Our waiter came back after 30 mins and told us they ran out again. Endive in our salad was not fresh. The pasta dish we ordered was served lukewarm. Unfortunately, it was not a great experience.

    Wow! We dined here on 5/11 and had a great time. We ordered 5 plates and had them coursed, so we ended up spending over 2 hours eating but it was all amazing. Our favorites were the prosciutto, clams, fried baby artichokes, and the fennel sausage pizze. Divine wine and limoncello. I should have asked if they sell their house wine by the bottle - so good.

    I’m a regular. That said I know how difficult supply is and also staffing! So! The new head chef here is doing a good job! For us regulars, and not just here, more menu additions, changes or add specials would be good. I expect that will be months or a year or so down the road to be easy for any restaurant! The staff is great. The food is excellent. And, neighborhood at least a little. Saw the wife of another restaurateur here this evening and had a brief chat. All good!
