All three of us in our party had fantastic meals. There was a nice variety of items to choose from on the menu. We sat outside and had a beautiful view of the Puget sound. Service was excellent. What more could you ask for?

Great authentic Italian restaurant in a local neighborhood in West Seattle. Feels like you’re eating at an Italian relatives house. Great charm & character. Great spot for a date. Pasta dishes were al fresco! Good wine selection. Definitely would go back.
