Spinasse is a perfect restaurant to try on a gray Seattle winter day. The ambiance is sturdy and rustic with dark wood and wrought iron chandeliers… not a place for a sunny summer evening, but perfect as refuge from the rain and weather in winter. The menu is limited but each offering has been... read more

Most excellent dishes even for those of use who don't eat pasta because of blood sugar. Pan‎ seared scallops with salsify, borlotti beans and sorrel. Poached egg with parmigiano fonduta and white truffle butter. Good wine list but not outstanding.

Best Italian restaurant I have been since Italy. Very knowledgable. Great wine list. A bit expensive but worth it for a special night.

Having traveled to Italy a few months ago, I was looking for a good Italian place to go to as a date with my boyfriend. I will be returning to Spinasse - (1) the pasta is very well done - with just enough sauce and excellent balance of flavor / texture (2) the wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and could... More

Visiting Seattle with my wife for anniversary - tried to find a variety of foodie places to go to. Came across this on TripAdvisor and decided to try based on the positive reviews. The reviews were correct - the food, atmosphere and service were all excellent. It was a cozy restaurant where we had a good view of the kitchen... More

The tajarin fine cut pasta with ragu is outstanding. Melts in your mouth! I'm ordinarily more of a white sauce person, but the bolognese ragu with this impossibly thin cut pasta is incredible. I would go back again and again just for this dish, and everything else on the menu we've tried has been excellent as well.

The food and service was outstanding. The pasta is homemade and without equal. The sauces are subtle as opposed to overwhelming. Outstanding wine list which complements the food. Truly the best meal I have had in Seattle in some time.

One of our favorite Italian restaurants in Seattle. Smaller dining area, great ambiance and the dishes are out of the world. I always try the nightly specials and they are worth it every time. Love watching them make the pasta as well...can't get much fresher than that. Service is always excellent and friendly and they make the best homemade sodas... More

Went there for dinner. Originally planned to have A La Carte, but decided to do the multi-course set menu . Each course was small, but really excellent. The handmade pasta was incredibly fresh and everything prior reviewers had said it would be. The restaurant is expensive, but I think we will be back for special occasions

Firstly, Spinasse has really great pasta and they do pasta well. We tried their tasting menu (because usually when a restaurant has a tasting menu we go ahead and try it) in the case of Spinasse, I really wish we had stuck to a regular meal (App, entree, dessert). The tasting menu was not the best. It was way too... More
