I love Italian food and this is where I go to get it when nothing else will do--and you should to!
In over a decade I've never had anything less than a stellar dish here. Indulge in the great wines, foie, grilled octopus, braised bunny and the risotto of the season (forget about the calorie count.)
No frills, just a formica countertop and a dozen stools at this market stand. Get the meatball sandwich (big enough to share) with housemade alfedo & marinara.
Affordable Italian food (some plates under $10) offered in a bustling environment. Show up early or have a glass of wine while you wait as no reservations are accepted.
A great room, solid food and a wonderful atrium and deck make this Cap Hill room buzz.
Get here now. Armando Batali (father of Mario) offers up quality charcuterie and sandwiches to eat in or takeaway. Ask about their private luncheons.
This luxe downtown room serves up Northern Italian fare including house made pastas, antipastas and grilled meats. Don't miss the grilled caesar, leg of lamb ragu, Barolo hangar steak or Trinidad cane mojito.
The daily happy hour 3:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. and and 10:00 p.m. - close is a great value. Think 50% off the entire bar menu and $14 bottles of wine.
Outdoor seating is a plus.
There isn't a bad time to visit this lively and stylish Belltown room but don't miss the monthly family style Sunday Feast when multi-course meals featuring duck to lobster served at the communal table set you back just 60 bucks. The nightly happy hour 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. is also a wise time to pop into the sleek bar up front.
This modern room in the heart of the Hill serves up gifts from the sea including a killer scallop crudo and grilled octopus. The fried chick peas and $1 oysters//$6 bubbles Sunday - Thursday 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. to close seal the deal.
Great energy and food combine to make S+F one of Seattle's best restaurants. Put yourself in Chef Branden's hands and order the $45 family style tasting menu--you'll be glad you did.
Call it a grocery, call it a restaurant, I don't care what you call it . Just don 't call me late for dinner or lunch at this southeast treasure.
When the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie that's amore--or maybe it's the gelato talking--this stuff is that good.
Garden fresh salads, wonderful antipastas and an excellent variety of wood-fired Roman street pizza means this Ethan Stowell venture is firing on all cylinders. Handmade pastas don't miss a beat either.
Beacon Hill scored big when they became home to this charming neighborhood joint which serves up wood-fired pies, small plates and seasonal salads. Get there early (they don't take reservations) and don't miss out on the grilled octopus with heirloom peperonata--a bargain at just 10 bucks.
Cheese, chaucuterie, pasta and sweet bites are a valid reason to visit this purveyor of all things Italian but don't overlook the wine & bitters selection upstairs.
Free wine tastings on Fri & Sat afternoons.
You can't go wrong in this lovely room that celebrates the cuisine of Piedmont but that said the tajarin with butter & sage and the hazelnut semifreddo always seem to make their way to my table.
Low key environs (unless you count the angel watching from on high) offer up multi-course meals sure to please every taste if you are honest about your likes and dislikes.
Great for dinner or brunch. Don't miss the meatballs and lovely salads. This is the new baby sister of their Ballard location.
Ethan Stowell's newest venture is next door to his much lauded Anchovies & Olives. The room is sleek & lively and plays host to the 'see and be seen' crowd of CapHill as well as those looking for a casual evening of pies, porchetta and lambrusco. Don't miss the salumi boards, roasted vegetables or the bruschetta with talleggio & roasted grapes or chickpeas, rapini and anchovy.
Vistit during happy hour 4:00 p.m - 6:00 p.m.to score 1/2 off all pizzas and beer and wine specials.
