Il Terrazzo Carmine
Il Terrazzo Carmine is located in historic Pioneer Square - nestled in an urban-renewed alley with entrances through the vintage lobby on First Avenue or through the delightful courtyard in the back. Since 1984, Carmine Smeraldo's classic Italian restaurant has been where the locals have chosen to return over and over again. From the Carpaccio Di Bue and Spaghettini Dell 'Ortolano for lunch to the Suprema Di Pollo Farcita and Zuppa Di Pesce for dinner you will know you have gone to a place where excellence is a way of life. Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Seattle, Il Terrazzo serves classical Italian cuisine with an atmosphere you may want to call home and never leave

Always wonderful food and service
Pasta was cooked perfectly. Seafood in pasta was cooked perfectly: tender muscles and giant prawns that tasted as sweet as fresh caught lobster, grilled & served beachfront. The tiramisu was the best my husband and I have ever had. Thanks for making his birthday so enjoyable!
Good food and great service. The kitchen accommodates dietary restrictions.
Beautiful restaurant with beautiful food. It is really still one of the top ten in Seattle
A little too loud for a conversation aside from that I love the place. Not great to have a conversation with a date.
this is one of the finest restaurants in Seattle - I am always happy to have the opportunity to eat there!
IL Terrazzo Carmine is a very romantic place for an intimate dinner date. We loved the sea bass and Ryan, our server, was very sensitive with his timing yet being very responsive. We loved it.
This is a perfect restaurant for special occasions. The food is excellent and the atmosphere feels like you could be in Italy. The service is gracious and the waitstaff knowledgeable. The venison stuffed ravioli was particularly excellent. This was a meal we will remember.
A hidden gem
I enjoyed my time there and the staff was very attentive
Fabulous - food , service, ambience! Pricey but absolutely worth it! They haven’t forgotten how to cook and present delightful food.
Our waiter, Brian, was exceptional! All the food was wonderful starting with the free bread-butter-Olive oil that came right away! Pasta dishes were plentiful so it’s great that they have half portions. The ambiance with white table clothes is a nice up-change from many Seattle establishments. So was seeing men in suits and women in dresses. Great spot for a special occasion and valet parking too! Dishes included antipasto plate, calamari, venison pasta, linguini Vongole and mushroom risotto. They all brought you right to Italy!
Wonderful service and delicious food
Outstanding food and impeccable service! A perfect dinner from start to finish.
Special place that never goes out of style. Nice wine list and champagne coctails .............................................
We visit Il Terrazzo for special occasions and are never disappointed.
Always a special dinner at Il Terrazzo! Atmosphere, pace of service, and quality of the dishes presented kept us smiling and glad that we chose our old favorite!
Il Terrazzo Carmine continues to provide the best food and service in a gorgeous setting. It never ever disappoints. Don't pass up the polenta and mushrooms to start
Il Terrazo is always a wonderful place to dine. And the food is excellent.
We always find something special, different and new.
Great value for the setting, the food and the exceptional service
Split a calamari appetizer and a seafood angel hair pasta for a date night and paid $50 after tip
Great service and the food is always great
Really nice place, excellent food and service. Would recommend anytime.
Very knowledgeable server, polite staff, great ambiance and excellent food for a fair price. A gem for Italian food in Seattle.
Kenneth is the best.
Everything about this restaurant is perfect from the minute you walk in the door to the server and......the food is delicious! They are always accommodating and happy to help with selections
PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!
Fabulous as usual!!!
I have been a fan of Carmine's for 32 years...no other restaurant in Seattle puts all the elements together so well: Food, ambiance, service. Even a casual lunch becomes a special occasion and dinner is always a great event...the servers just seem to know how to pace the courses, and when you need them for something. When Carmine himself passed away a few years ago, I was worried that this great restaurant might slip, but it has not...I would say the standards now are as high as when Carmine himself was running the show, which he did with a great combination of steel and velvet! If he came back today, he would be proud of his family and how they have maintained his high standards. Carmine's forever!
Never disappoints! One of the few restaurants where one feels special while dining out.
This restaurant was absolutely fantastic!!!! Mido was a phenomenal waiter. I will definitely visit this place again.
Excellent as always. The best Italian food in Seattle.
Such a wonderful experience, I would highly recommend.
Lovely evening, great food! We had 4 in our party and everyone loved their meal. I had my favorite clams linguine and it was the best I’ve ever had, including in Italy. The service was amazing, our waiter was always there at the right time and with the right attention. The wine list was a little overwhelming and very overpriced, but we still enjoyed a lovely bottle that was 3x’s the price of buying it directly. Most of the wine averaged $100 a bottle. Would highly recommend if you are staying on Pioneer Square, easy walk from the Courtyard Marriott.
Wonderful! Love the service, ambiance and fabulous food! Even accommodated requests that were not in the menu.
Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent food and excellent service.
Third time having dinner here. Food is good as is the ambiance.
The food is genuinely good. The sweetbreads are great. The ambience is great.
One of the most consistent restaurants with regard to kitchen performance, staff professionalism, and overall high level of service.
