Incredible location, ambiance, service, food

Best Italian in Seattle, period. Fantastic ragout, pasta, desserts, wine, service - anything less is wasting time.

Not in the mainstream, however, wonderful authentic Italian dishes. It is very small, so you may need to wait. Only take reservations for six or more. Don't miss. Our family has been here several times and will return again,

Recently went here for a birthday dinner celebration and had a most excellent meal. The restaurant has a great view of the water across the street and a small courtyard so you can dine al fresco. The two appetizers we had and all three entrees were very good. The only thing that could be improved was the dinner salad that... More

Some of the dishes our group had was wild boar, scallops in a cream sauce with nutmeg and mushroom and suasage risotto. WONDERFUL! While we had to wait for... More

We had read all of the excellent reviews of La Rustica and decided to make it our last dinner in Seattle before returning home. Our vacation had been very seafood heavy so an Italian dinner was appealing. We arrived at 7:30 PM and were promptly seated by the owner in the small but pretty dining room. I cannot say enough...

In the middle of a residential area, we experienced some interesting Italian/Mediterranean fares. The place is not fancy, the bathroom even scary, but the food was really compensating. Wine was good for a reasonably priced sélection.

Read about this restaurant in the Alaska Airline travel magazine recently and decided to try it out when we came up to Seattle. So many wonderful items to choose from. Appetizers - we selected the oysters which was like a rockafeller , and the Caprese salad with the buffalo mozzarella. Main courses were salmon, chicken and chipino. Finished the evening... More

During a recent visit to my sister-in-law, we went to La Rustica. This was our 2nd visit to the restaurant. It is a relatively small restaurant and although we were the only people on the list arriving at 6:20 pm we waited 45 minutes. We had the lasagna cannenoli eggplant pasta tiramisu and rum cake. All were delicious including the... More

We LOVE West Seattle and if it weren't for my husband's job, we'd move out there in a heartbeat. There's the Alki Beach side of the peninsula and there's my favorite side - I'm not sure what this side is called. It's the less beachy, more isolated and quieter side. The views are PHENOMENAL out here. Standing along the edge... More
