Good food, but the decor is the star

This is one of the stranger dining locations in Seattle. The food is Italian, and very tasty but the value here is the fun staff and the décor. Items hanging from the ceiling, strange surrealistic paintings, odd and mismatched chandeliers make it seem as if you are dining in someone’s cluttered... read more

This is one of the stranger dining locations in Seattle. The food is Italian, and very tasty but the value here is the fun staff and the décor.

We arrived at 5:15 on a Friday night...got one of the last tables before they started turning folks away. It's a small place with no waiting room/bar/area. Waitress was fabulous. We were a party of four and had the pasta carbonara, lamb, the cow (beef short ribs) and the elk Bolognese. All were excellent. Our two teens were a little... More

This is a fun, quirky place with great decor, excellent service and delicious Italian food. The atmosphere is cool. We had the Clam Linguini and the Spaghetti Carbonara. Both were delicious. The spicy chocolate lava cake was the perfect ending. We can't wait to go back.

A group of seven of us came here for dinner after a work conference. It was a truly unique and enjoyable evening. Everyone raved about the food. Our server was an absolute delight. The décor is over the top, too. Very fun. Don't miss the bathrooms, either. It didn't occur to me to make sure they accepted American Express, so... More

This was the best lasagna I have ever ordered from a restaurant. The red sauce is incredible. We had to wait a bit to sit down but it was worth it. The place is small but cool and quirky. Check it out.

I went here with three others on a Monday night since I had seen the restaurant featured on TV. I was not disappointed. The restaurant is on a back street and very small. We were able to get a table almost immediately luckily. There was a waiting line when we left so plan ahead. Service was prompt, the waitress was... More

My daughter and I came for dinner on a nice warm Monday night. We didn't have a reservation and got seated at "the best table in the house." We had a great server, she was super nice and the food was perfect. We both started with a fresh caprese salad with tomatoes bursting with summer. She got the lasagne -... More

This place has great food and a fun atmosphere. We got the forest floor frenzy pasta and a snap pea pasta and both were delicious. We tried the bananas foster and cheesecake desserts and both were good, but nothing special. However, the quality of the pastas made up for what the desserts lacked.
