My husband and I love this place. We frequent Barolo often. The foie gras is one of the best ever. Rabbit fettuccini is my favorite. They have great happy hour and beautiful people. Carly is the best !!!! Go there and see for yourself.

There aren't too many really great Sat night happy hours, but we've recently decided to check out some new places, and this is a keeper. We got the last 3 seats at the bar, but it was a great place to people watch and chat with the bartenders. Happy hour wines are $14/bottle and there are oodles of delicious food... More

This was a great recommendation from a friend and how right he was. I had the Osso Bucco and my friend had the Veal Chop special as main course. Spectacular Wine was excellent and was decanted for us at the table. Tomato and gorgonzola salad was a perfect start. The table next to us was a couple from Italy that... More

It was my first trip to Seattle. My family arrived on a Sunday morning on 7 June 2015 and checked in to our rental apartment along Westlake Avenue. We decided to walk around and look for restaurants and shops/supermarkets to buy our daily essentials. While walking by the Barolo Ristorante, we stopped to look at the menu displayed outside the...

My friend and I were hungry after a conference session ended at the Westin, so we wandered a couple of blocks and walked into a nearly empty Barolo at 2:30 p.m. Did I seriously get a steak and ravioli plate for $14?? I wondered if I was imagining things? My mouth is watering again as I'm typing this. Can "gourmet"... More

We visited this Italian Restaurant on May 31, 2015 as a group of 6. The waiter in charge of our table was the best I've ever had in the U.S. in that he was full of sense of humor. He entertained us unbelievably hilariously with his many funny jokes. I took his recommendation of the wild boar steak, which was... More

Ate solo at the bar on a quiet Sunday night. Happy houri s 3-6:30pm, but missed it by about a half hour. Had the grilled caesar's salad - which was a novel and delicious take on the classic and the cheese plate - which had a great mix of savory and delicious selections. Lastly had the house ravioli with ricotta... More

This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and a very inviting and friendly staff. We viewed the menu before walking in and saw many menu items labeled as "humanely raised chicken" and lots of "natural" and "organic" mentions throughout. Descriptions like this make the customer believe this restaurant has a focus/passion for humanely treated animals. Unfortunately, its a FRONT and a... More
