Restaurant is small so be prepared for a wait at dinner especially if there's something going on at the theater down the street, Service and food was good. I had the spinach ravioli and it was delicious, We had a carafe of the house red wine and it was also very good.

Just to warn you, there is typically a fairly long wait for a table at this restaurant. That being said, it's worth it! I got the gnocchi with red sauce and LOVED the red sauce. I was afraid it would taste like Prego, but you can tell they put their heart into their food. It was fabulous - also the... More

I had this meal a little over a week ago while visiting Seattle, and I'm already plotting my next trip so I can get another taste of that Chicken Milanese! Not to mention the pasta side... bread starter... house wine... there was nothing not to love! I would be a regular at Machiavelli if I was local, and you can... More

Went there for dinner on a Monday and there was a short wait, which we took as a good sign. They seated us with ten minutes or so. The place is small but in a cozy, romantic way, and big on character. The food, service, and atmosphere were all lovely.

This place was the highlight of my trip to Seattle. The food was absolutely amazing! A friend tried to get chicken on her fettuccine and they wouldn't do it, so don't expect them to cook what you are used to from regular chain restaurants - they take pride in what they offer.

Stopped in for a nice early dinner. The restaurant was small with an Italian family feel. The ravioli special was delicious and the open air indoor seating was charming. Was able to park on the street right in front and while full, did not wait for a table. Service was good and not intrusive.

This is a great little neighbourhood restaurant with home style Italian food. Everything is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. Service is attentive and brisk, without being rushed. We didn't want to miss out so arrived at 5.30 on a Monday night, by the time we left at 6.30, the place was packed! And you get a 5% discount if you... More

There are only a handful of restaurants that I repeatedly go back time and again so that I can get other people hooked. This is one of them. Although the restaurant is small, it is vibrantly humming with conversation, laughter and great smells emanating from the kitchen. If you are arriving after 6, be prepared to wait in the bar...

Great waitress, nice atmosphere and decor A bit loud and crowded, but we came with a party of 6 and were seated right away. Portions were good, food was good. The marinara was a bit spicy and the tomatoe cream was kind of like a marinara, but the meat was fantastic. Overall, I would say it's a nice place with... More
