Great date spot for a relaxed and unhurried dinner. Classy atmosphere and service, food is excellent. Top ranked restaurant in Tacoma for a reason.

So I'm kind of a foodie and my husband and I are tough critics. We have been here many times over and would highly recommend it to everyone. It is tucked away near a small college and has an intimate feel to it. Perfect for date night. I recommend making reservations as it is a small converted home with limited... More

We have been going here for years. Very romantic, cozy and friendly. Air conditioned with lovely patio seating. This food has been the best kept secret and trumps anything in Seattle. Great wine selection, locally sourced food. The menu continues to rotate with seasonal delights. Nice for adult time only.

This resturant is two miles from my house, and we have never been dispointed for lunch or dinner! On Garfield St. a half block for Pacific Lutheran University so always make reservation for dinner as a popular place to dine! Nice variety of pasta and salads, nightly specials. Beer and wine served! Friendly staff, old converted house, outside seating, weather... More

In the Tacoma area, when I think of fine dining, I think of Stanley and Seafort's and Marzano's. While the physical establishments are very different, the food is similarly impressive. I've never had a bad meal at Marzano's. Until I had to go gluten-free, I adored their pasta, especially the ravioli. Even now, eating gluten-free, I can always find something... More

This is the go-to restaurant for PLU faculty and staff for years. Great Italian--more north than south--and a cozy atmosphere. Dinner is more formal than lunch.

Been here many times over the years. Quaint location near a college campus, easy to miss when looking for it. We have NEVER been disappointed with the food! Because of the small facility, you will be dining in very close proximity to other tables, which can be bothersome to those looking for privacy and quiet dinners. However, all who come... More
