The restaurant, ambiance, food, even the pricing was really good. I would definitely make a reservation if I went back though. The only weird thing about the visit was that while we were waiting for a table, we were led through a long winding maze into a makeshift space that was very empty and open/exposed feeling. We sat a a... More

There is no sign. Just a pink door in an alley. You walk through that door and you'll find a crowded interior of a quaint Italian restaurant. The food is excellent. I went here on a recommendation and when I saw it was #1 on tripadvisor I had to try it. Reasonably priced and it was some of the best... More

We were there on NYE, last day before the shutdown for 3 months. It was a fun evening with trapeze act and great food/wine. Definitely a place to stop by if you are in Seattle. No wonder why it's ranked #1.

After reading many reviews on this place it definitely came highly recommended. Unfortunately, my cousins and I weren't able to make a reservation. Instead the person on the phone told us that they do reserve a few tables for walk ins so we decided to just go for it. We were totally prepared to wait but to our surprise we... More

I had an excellent experience, our family (of 7). Both the lasagna and the chicken were great. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The atmosphere was great. Overall we had a great experience.

It's easy to see why this place stays at the top in Seattle. We were in the Market at lunch time and my TA app "near me now" reminded us of The Pink Door. Pat's linguini con vongole was brimming with little clams, the linguini was perfectly al dente, and the sauce was just fine. I'm not a pesto fan,... More

Hidden behind a (probably pink) unmarked door you can find this lovely restaurant where the friendly staff presents you with very good Italian food. They even give you proper time to choose your food, and after enjoying it they don't snatch your plate away and present you the bill. You are given plenty of time to make your diner an... More

The place was a bit difficult to find- it's just a pink door. But the restaurant was beautifully decorated. We we were there around the holidays, so there were lights up all around. The atmosphere was great and there was live music as well. Our waiter was kind and very competent. The food was delicious and the portions were good... More

The Pink Door will be closed Jan. through March 2017 for remodeling!

Our beloved establishment will be in winter hibernation as we make some exciting changes, but rest assured the deep, lovely wrinkles will still be there. Aside from a much-deserved kitchen overhaul, the stage will be relocated, and we’ll offer a magical new seating area with a view of the water and sky. You can look forward to the same delicious seasonal food, same eclectic entertainment, and the same caring, lovely staff waiting to serve you!

Follow our construction progress on Instagram. We are teaming with Seattle-based Metis Construction, an independent community of craftspeople proudly running a worker-owned company; we’re thrilled to have its artisan touch.

See you in Spring!
