Very Nice Romantic spot

Good food, good wine, great dating spot located in a quiet neighbourhood. Nice bar adjacent to the restaurant with a good choice of appetizers. Perfect to wait for your table to be ready.

Still talking about our meals and it has been a few weeks since we ate there. Do some research on Italian cocktails (aperitiv and digestif) and wines beforehand to capitalize on a full italian dining experience. If you are looking for pasta in red sauce try somewhere else. Pasta is homemade and delicious.

After 4 visits to this quintessential Seattle restaurant, I am convinced that Spinasse is worth flying to Seattle to visit. No kidding. Just book a ticket if you aren't a local, and visit this wonderful city for the sole purpose of dining at Spinasse. This is a small, European style restaurant that is hard to find, and they like it... More

this place is seriously good. the ambiance is quaint, simple, & intimate. they can serve any of the cocktails from artusi as well as their own cocktail list, and the service can be just okay or great, but where this place really shines is the food. i love to come during different times of the year because this gem transitions...

I took my boyfriend here on his surprise bday trip to Seattle. It was my first time to visit the city. This restaurant was amazing, from the ambience, to the service, to the food. Its small enough to feel special and intimate, but not so small that it was crowded. Great Italian wine selection.

venue was charming and our first server was lovely but she had to leave so we got another server who was not helpful. I told him I had a medical stomach issue and asked if the cod dinner could be steamed , no sauce and if I could substitute the kale with the steame spinach. He said I would have... More

We were a group of friends excited to try out Spinasse for our supper club but I have to say we had greater expectations considering all the vibe. The starters were quite good, the butter lettuce salad was probably the best item on the whole menu that night, and the selection of the house antipasti gave us a chance to... More

We came to celebrate a birthday on a Tuesday night. No reservations, but they had a table for us. The seats seemed really low - or the table was really high. Either way, it was uncomfortable, so we moved to the counter top. Turns out that was the best move we could have made - personal attention from Amanda, the... More

This venue was within walking distance of my B&B the Gaslight Inn and I dined solo. Got a comfortable table against the wall and my waitress was very attentive and engaging. Food was excellent though the wait times at the end of the meal - why do so many great restaurants have this issue? - were too long. Definitely recommend.
