Start the experience at the door. The valets were criticizing previous clients. I arrived needing my cane. They didn't bother to even offer to open the door. I thought that was rude. Our waiter kept touching my shoulder despite being asked not to. When selecting our drinks, the waiter suggested a higher-priced wine instead of what we wanted. He then... More

I've been at the Barolo bar before, but never had a full dinner before. Our dinner on Saturday night was delightful. The place has a great atmosphere, a bit of a retro decor, vibrant staff, and every one around us seems to be enjoying themselves. We had a salad and grilled calamari for appetizer, then the filet and fettucini with... More

Frankly this establishment should be in the top 15. Great service, wonderful presentation, great atmosphere but most if all authentic Italian cuisine. This is a must go trip if you are in Seattle

This is a lovely place, the decor is beautiful and the servers are fun and very knowledgeable.Good food too,you have to try the spinach and lentil soup, and the grilled romaine salad. The ambiance is kind of upbeat and lively.

Barolo's regular menu and food are very good, but what sets this place apart is its Happy Hour. Get there early to get a seat in the bar (though sometimes they'll let you sit in the restaurant section if you promise to be done by the dinner hour). Their appetizer menu is half off and they have bottles of wine... More

We dined yesterday at Barolo for the first time. The occasion was to celebrate our son's 17th birthday and I had mentioned that when I made the reservation through Open Table. When we arrived, the hostess greated our son with a " Happy 17th Birthday " and the 3 menus they handed us had a " Happy 17th Birthday" mention... More

have been there several times. Goog location in Downtown, friendly service. Good tasty food, a little expensive, but it's worth because of atmosphere. Do not miss kebab on Harry Hour.

We went for a romantic dinner and were seated far in the back by the restrooms but we still couldn't hear the waitress over the bar noise at the other end of the restaurant. I had the Seabass and it was very salty as was everything else on the plate with it. My husband had the sirloin and it was... More

Got recommended the Barolo Ristorante from the receptionist at our hotel and decided to book at table there for a Saturday night. The restaurant itself, the service and the vibe was great, but unlike most other places we´ve visited in Seattle, we did not get much food. But what we got was very good so if the portions were bigger... More
