We've walked by the charming courtyard a dozen times, commenting "how cute!" with the iron fencing, fountain and lights. Entries range from $20 - $30+, so a Groupon finally prompted us to actually go inside and eat. It was delicious. Calamari in pesto was perfectly cooked; no rubber rings here. My lemon risotto with scallops was outstanding. My husband's rock... More

I purchased a Groupon for this restaurant for my visit in Seattle and didn't know what to expect. It exceeded my expectations. Romantic ambiance inside and pretty courtyard fountain outside. The food was fabulous! We ordered mushroom soup and bruschetta for an appetizer which was the best I've ever tasted, and the pasta we ordered was also very good. Our... More

My daughter and I dined at La Fontana Sicilliana last night. It was our finest dining experience since we moved to Seattle 18 years ago. First of all, the ambiance from the picturesque courtyard to the exposed brick and antiques was so welcoming and beautiful…….you could not ask for anything more. Let me now concentrate on the most important aspect... More

My friends and I met for an early, pre-movie dinner, and we enjoyed a nice meal. Although we couldn’t linger due to time constraints, we were able to relax over a couple courses and a little bit of wine (note: unfortunately, there is no liquor served other than beer and wine). The staff was friendly, and the décor was reminiscent... More

If I lived here, this would definitely be one of my favorite restaurants to return to over and over. Very good service that was helpful and the meal was exceptional.

We tried this place after reading very good reviews on both tripadvisor and open table. I have to say, having been to Italy several times (including Sicily) AND the fact that I'm 100% Italian, I had higher hopes based on the reviews. I tried the night special salad which was pear and prosciutto with Parma cheese. The pear was great,... More

I try to dine every summer when I can sit out side by the fountains. I have also eaten with friends inside: very cozy and romantic. This evening, I enjoyed excellent service [no hovering, just attentiveness] and a superior meal. I began with "contadina:" slightly wilted spinach arrayed on grilled melanzane [eggplant] full of balsamic vinegar. Followed by what is... More

Nice wine list, lots of menu choices, and on a warm summer evening, the outdoor seating is lovely. The service was good- the waiter attentive, but not cloying or hovering. Food was very good. This has become one of my favorite places to eat in Seattle, which is full of great places to eat.

We ate here while travelling through Seattle. We kind of wandered by and saw the menu on the street and thought it looked fun. I think there were options to sit inside but we ate outside. Dining outside means you're in a small courtyard that also served as the entrance to the apartment building. I could see up into a... More

We stopped by on a warm Seattle evening in June for dinner and a glass of wine. The restaurant is pretty cool inside, it's like stepping into someone's house. There is also a nice little courtyard if you would like to eat outside. We chose to sit inside but maybe should have been out. It was warm inside, I don't... More
