Il Bistro is a nice Italian restaurant near Pike's Place Market. We were promptly greeted and seated at a lovely table adorned with fresh flowers. The wine list here is extensive and, although both old and new world wines are represented, the emphasis is on Italian wines from all regions of Italy. The wines are very reasonably priced. We enjoyed a well-recommended bottle for $33. The portions here are quite large and I am glad my husband and I decided to share a salad to start our meal. There are lots of meat and vegetarian entrees but fresh fish and seafood are promoted. Our meals of fresh Alaskan halibut with pea risotto and BC King salmon were wonderful although the orzo that accompanied the salmon was a little bland. Our server was very helpful and quickly corrected a small mistake with our bill (we were charged too little, not too much).
