Great View of Puget Sound

At first glimpse, the restaurant appeared like a good place for a mid-afternoon lunch. Once we entered the building, we found more of a fine dining establishment with linen napkins, set tables, and a more refined and bar like atmosphere. the real charm was the large outdoor two level deck where... read more

Sitting out on the deck in the sunshine was awesome. Fortunately, we were prepared for the sun because there is very little shade. The alcoholic drinks were good. We enjoyed our appetizers. I ordered a pizza and it was good, although I felt it was overpriced.

The food was good Italian, we split a pizza, had salads and an appetizer. All were very good. My husband takes customers during the work week. The view, on a sunny day...you can't beat it!! We will continue to go back...it's a simple restaurant, but a hidden gem.

Classy interiors for dining, but we headed to the terrace for lunch in the sun. Our waitress sweet talked the chef to prepare lunch size Copper River Salmon on a bed of spinach, with pasta parmesan. Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains views are the background for the split level decks.

This is one of those places that seems like it might be a good idea, but turns out to be less than expected. The view is ok. It used to be better before the trees grew up to block it. I had the Grilled Copper River Salmon, which was delicious and prepared well. There was some burning on the thin... More

Serving excellent Italian Fare including outstanding Pizza this place is worth a visit. All food items are properly cooked and served by friendly, knowlegeable staff. A great menu complemented by a full bar makes Verrazano's a great place for a romantic meal or entertaining clients.

We stumbled across this restaurant on our way to a play at Centerstage in Federal Way. We passed it and thought it must be good by the number of cars parked outside. We were seated immediately and had a beautiful view of Puget Sound and Vashon Island. The waiter was very attentive, knowledgeable and provided great service. The menu was... More

Arrive with some daylight, so you can enjoy the amazing vista from way above Poverty Bay, along Puget Sound. Service is always best with the bar-staff tending to your every need. The bar area has a great menu, in fact you can order from the restaurant menu. Lobby decor is impressive, the wood-fired oven is beautiful, and smells great, and... More

My first visit to Verrazano's, which is in walking distance of my house. Entered and was greeted by a friendly hostess. We passed an open kitchen and the fresh Italian loaves of bread on display immediately set me in a "comfort" mood. We were seated at a table with a really nice sunset view of Puget Sound and could see... More

I used to love this place. I don't know why the prices went up or why the staff is routinely rude. They embarrassed me for no reason over a bill I paid. Their error. Portions have become smaller. Appetizers less appealing and more expensive. Staff seems like they are doing you a favor for routine services. View is nice which... More
