This trattoria, while run by a gentleman from a small town near Rome, is a bit underwhelming.

terrible service

A friend and I stopped in after a movie and were seated at a table then we noticed that there were happy hour specials at the bar so we asked if we could move to the bar. The restaurant was mostly empty except for people at the bar. We sat there for 5 min without being acknowledged, so I asked the bartender if we could get a drink. He said he was busy, 3 orders were ahead of us and he would get to us when he could. He then proceeded to refill everyone's drinks, run the tab for the people sitting right next to us, even though they did not appear to be in any kind of hurry. After 15 minutes of this, we decided to leave and were putting our coats on when he came over. He shrugged his shoulders like it had nothing to do with him.

I was wrong

and i apologize. i did meet francesco the owner this summer, and he is a great guy. charming, funny and GORGEOUS. how great is he? i went in for dinner last night and did not see a vegetarian pasta on the menu. i asked if i could have my spaghetti without meat, and he generously accommodated my request without charging me extra. it was molto delicioso. this is the only italian restaurant in seattle i recommend to friends and family. grazie mille, nello e francesco!

We knew we would be regulars after the first time we visited. Our party was pretty large, they have tables along the wall that they can push together and make a comfortable space. One of our orders was confused. The owner brought us the mistaken meal and rushed back to make the correct one. Everyone at the table took a bite and we all decided it was the best thing on the table, which was the gnocchi tartufati. When we finished, he brought us all free glasses of his favorite digestif.

Now my boyfriend and I go once every one to two weeks. The waiters aren't the best, but they are very very nice. The food is always absolutely amazing. My one complaint is that the space is rather loud. The acoustics are just poor, but I can deal with it.

And they have Mac 'n' Jacks. For goodness sake, more places need MnJ's.

The food is just divine. The gnooci (melts in your mouth)... sauces out of this world. Fantastic Italian wines.. The owner is very cool and always welcoming and remembers us each time we visit, it is a GREAT addition to the neighborhood! Best Italian food I've ever had in Seattle.

The owner was great!

The food is wonderful, I'm excited to have a pasta place around here. The owner was so friendly and chatted with us for quite a while. I know that one reviewer was not greeted by him, but he has been vivacious and smiling every time I have been in there. Nice happy hour wines as well.

Welcome to the 'hood!

Great to have a new restaurant in the Broadway Market area that isn't Thai/Pho -- and also happens to have great service, tasty food at reasonable prices, and quality atmosphere. (And the owner even stopped by the table -- not that he needed to.)

excellent food, but...

the food, especially the homemade sorbetto, was great. the owner, who couldn't be bothered to get off his bar stool and talk to his guests in order to build a little customer loyalty, not so much. would it have hurt to say hello, how do you like the cuisine, wocka wocka wocka? a little attention can reap great dividends in repeat business. oh, well, if that's not important, it's not important. arrivederci.
