Hey! read the reviews, they are spot on

Picked this place from Trip Advisor. Wanted dinner after a Musical downtown on a Sat. Super choice on my part. Party of 4, no waiting(if you arrive around 5pm), attentive staff, and yes, it's kinda funky. All four meals were excellent.

Atmosphere,great food and even better service all in one great little package. Without a doubt it was the best dining experience we had while in Seattle! The decorations inside allow you to find something new to look at and talk about every 30 seconds. Staff was exceptional.

Atmosphere as you stepped in was funky and crowded and festive. Kinda fun to look around. Service was quick enough at the right time. Prices a little high for the portions you get. We both left a little short of adequate. Food tasted great though.

Exactly what I needed! My fiancé and I were visiting Seattle from Anchorage, AK, and our goal for dinner was handmade pasta. Bizzarro did not disappoint! In fact, our entire experience was great. Although the place was busy, we were promptly greeted and seated at a cozy table. We had enough time to get comfortable before receiving our menus, but... More

The seasonal specials will not disappoint- this week it was papparadelle with artichokes and mushrooms in a mustard cream sauce- very very good- all of the pastas are prepared well as are the entree option of beef,, pork or chicken - the pasta with clams is...

I love this little hole in the wall in Wallingford. Colorful, fun decor and is a perfect girls night out or date night. The gnocchi is amazing although everything on the menu is. They don't take reservations so come early or be prepared to wait, it's worth it!

A long time ago I'd seen an episode of DDD which featured Bizzarro Italian Cafe. On both visits the food here is just amazing, and it doesn't matter which dish you order. The pink grapefruit sorbet was also very delicious. The service was excellent and the server was full of suggestions. Be prepared to line up. The restaurant isn't that... More

This is such a neat place and I can see why Diner’s Drive-in’s and Dives highlighted it. I came by myself during a business trip and had to wait for about 45 minutes to get seated. Not too many seats in the place as it is obviously very popular. It was certainly worth the wait. The décor is a crazy... More

Stopped in for an early dinner. Our group included 2 children. Staff was welcoming and friendly to all of us. The atmosphere is quirky to say the least....but in a good way. The room was welcoming and comfortable. Our food was excellent....portions are moderate. Wonderful handmade pastas...mine had shrimp in a Lemoncello sauce. For dessert we had Angel Fluff...a panna...
