Branzino gets 5 out of 5 because it does, very well, what it sets out to do. It fits into the Belltown scene as a "neighborhood" Italian/seafood restaurant, offering a one page menu [6 starters, 7 small plates, 7 entrees, and 4 pizzas] and a one page wine list [6-7 different varietal of reds by the glass and 5 whites...

We had dinner last night before seeing something at Benaroya Hall. Our waitress Paige was first-rate. The restaurant staff and management are very nice. We got stuck in traffic on I-5 so we were 30 minutes late to our reservation. When we realized we were going to be late, I called was told that it was fine and to come... More

We went here with a groupon and truly enjoyed our experience. We started with the brussel sprouts and the meatballs which were both delicious. For our main course we had the Bolognese which was amazing and the chicken with incredible gnocchi. The chicken was cooked just right. This place really makes delicious pasta and I would go back for it... More

This is a quaint and beautiful restaurant perfect for a date night Reliable service and delicious food. Both meals my husband and I shared are some of the best and most creative Italian dishes we have tried. The spinach gnocchi was perfect in texture and taste. Only complaint was the small portion sizes for all three courses. If you are... More

Very pleasant atmosphere. Noise level is quite acceptable for a private conversation. Wine list is rich but wines offered are quite expensive (Could not find a red below $39/bottle... A Barbera d'Asti that proved to be delicious). Good food (I personally recommend the pork chop with string beans with morrels -- outstanding). Portions are not large, but plenty sufficient, given...

Craving good Italian after a week's cruise, we had the good fortune to stumble into Branzino. Tiffany was delightful as our waiter, serving up a delicious wine- "final final" by Efeste, fresh house greens, incredible octopus - on puttanesca topped w basil salsa verde - and a thin crust pizza - salami, mushroom peach . Topped off with a yummy... More

My wife and I recently spent a Tuesday evening here. I'm no expert in Italian food, (I wouldn't have been able to tell you what Branzino is), but I can say for certain that Branzino's has got it right. I had the gnocchi verde. The highlight for me was the cream sauce with wild mushroom. my wife had seared scallops... More

Our meal tonight was amazing. Appetizers were the house salad and the cheese plate. For dinner we had the Oven Roasted Branzino fish and it was amazing and filleted right at the table! We also got the Pappardelle Bolognese. I cannot even begin to describe how yummy this was, you just need to order it and experience it. It will... More

The four of us met up with another couple and the staff managed to pull enough tables together so that we could eat outside. I appreciated their effort. The food was very good and those that had mixed drinks praised them as well. The location was close to the hotel El Gaucho, so that made it quite convenient for us.

The small restaurant comfort, the house wine, the entres, and the service are a\ways so good I look forward to my next opportunity to return. Sometimes solo and many time accompanied by one or several and never a disappointment. when in season the Beet Salad is the very best!
