    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!

    This place is such a treat to go to. Cozy, intimate, yet elegant atmosphere, creative cocktails, and incredible food. Our waiter seemed stretched thin, but he was friendly and wonderful when he got to us. The food is a bit pricey, but as a special occasion/once in a while treat, I highly recommend!

    A spur-of-the-moment dinner during Restaurant Week lead us to Bar Cantinetta-Madison Valley. We booked a table inside but based on noise level and safety concerns we changed our minds. In addition to an unseasonably warm day, outside heaters kept us warm. Tables were spaced with social distancing in mind. Our waiter was prompt and consistently present as needed without hovering constantly. The food was delicious!

    The room’s noise level—house speakers, loud table beside us— was an unfortunate distraction. But the staff were very responsive and generous, even bringing us glasses of bubbly for the birthday girl in our group. Big props for that. Food was exquisite!

    The menu items became less. We have been there many times and liked their wagyu or paint hill steaks. They didn’t have them anymore so we were disappointed. This was our birthday dinner and we indicated it when making reservation thru open table but was disregarded. Service was not as good as it used to be but acceptable. Hope this place gets better now that we are recovering from the pandemic. Missed our favorite waiting person. Please bring back the good menu and service you used to have. Thanks.

    This is a great looking place with a good menu. The food was average, with the appetizers actually being the best part. The service was mechanical and the staff were not welcoming; almost as if it was a bit of an annoyance that we were there. Not sure what explains this as we have been at the Bellevue location and it was an excellent experience.

    I've been before and it was great, but this time not so much. I reserved a table at the bar but the stuck me outside and we froze. That also meant the food got cold quickly. And they forgot one of my appetizers - great they didn't charge me, but still not awesome. I'll give it a go again because I've had otherwise good experiences but last night was a big miss on their part.

    As usual, food and service were excellent! Certainly Italian! And certainly some Toscanini. (If you follow me you know I eat in Italy routinely) For the US I am sure I may be too specific! It’s great food! And super service!
