Barolo has great food and a festive atmosphere. It can be noisy at happy hour. I had the ossobuco and it was almost as good as what I had in Italy. That's saying a lot! The food is fresh and flavorful. The service was impeccable. Thank you, Barolo, for an enjoyable meal.

Okay, so maybe the homemade gnocchi from Mamma Grande's kitchen in Brooklyn 50 years ago was better but that could be my memory playing tricks on me. Gnocchi is one of my favorite items to order on the menu until Barolo. Now that I know the best, on this side of the Atlantic anyway, I will have to decide on... More

Food was top notch and service was great. Restaurant recognized our celebration with a couple glasses of sparkling wine. The vibe is distinctively funky and surprisingly casual even for Seattle. Highly recommend for a fun night of good food.

In the Westlake area, this is an atmospheric trattoria more Californian than Italian but with the right ingredients, good pastas, fish and wines. The wait staff are all good looking and eager to please. The food and wines are above average. Only 5 minutes from the Nordstrom and other 5th ave shopping core.

Very nice Italian Restaurant. Food was excellent. Prices on the high side, but this is a happening trendy place. Very crowded and noisey. We all had pasta. My friend and I had fettucini with rabbit. My wife had rigatoni with lamb. Both were excellent. I also had a tasty beet salad. The waitress was attentive, but we all agreed she'd... More

I would have given this restaurant 5 stars if you could have heard yourself think in it. Not just bad acoustics, but horrible thumping music. But the food was very good. We both had the fettucine with rabbit, which was simply divine. Good salads, especially the beet and hazelnuts. Our waitress was very attentive. Nice wine list, not just Italian... More

We arrived into our downtown Seattle hotel mid evening after a long day of travel. We asked for recommendations at the desk, and were not really blown away by any of them. We were in the mood for Italian, and so googled the Italian places in the neighborhood. We found Barolo a moderate walk away. We weren't sure at first... More

Went for the Pasta Fagioli - not the best. I can do better myself. However, the Spaghetti with calamari and parmiggiano was fantastic and on the Happy Hour Menu. Do it!

Best custom made Italian within walking distance of Westlake area. Swanky nightlife in the bar and good happy hour pricing.
