Service was excellent and the food was very good. No major weaknesses here and I would recommend it. Very "hip" place--busy so reservations recommended. Good selection of italian wines.

Bread w/ Olive Tampanade - very fresh & good. Chef selection Ravioli was delicious. Spaghetti w/ Prawns was the BEST...ever. The waiter recommended it &... More

Restaurant was full. They had a nice bar menu and happy hour drinks, even though it was Saturday...server gave great drink suggestions! We... More

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
