Il Nido Is the New Pasta Mecca of West Seattle



While the line makes going to Il Corvo impractical for a local that's working in the area, I've been once (a long lunch break while on jury duty) and it was fantastic. It says a LOT that people are willing to queue up for an hour on that block, too. It's, uh, redolent (and not from the al dente pasta), and the street life associated with the DESC drop-in on James and the main offices on 3rd would be enough to send most tourists and suburbanites fleeing.

Excited to try Il Nido sometime, I hope that Mike Easton doesn't burn out (that was after all the original impetus for the lunch only service at Il Corvo on the Pike St Hillclimb and the current location on James).
