I was looking for a place near the Westin that had good food, smaller portions and wine. We three enjoyed our meals. Bread came with. Hub had $20 lunch special which consisted of a large salad and calamari and risotto . I had the octopus, fingerlings, veg. In lemon broth and friend had fish and veg. Hit the spot.

What a night to remember for my family. We go to Barolo on a yearly basis to celebrate my wife's birthday. Every year, the food and the service are amazing. However, this year, the team at Barolo went one step further which knocked us off our feet! They knew in advance that we were coming in for my wife's birthday... More

I feel like a couple of years ago I would've given these guys a 5 star rating. I brought my daughters here a couple months ago and it just lacked the pop! The food was good and their service is excellent. It just missed with all of us. The food is well prepared and good tasting.

It has been a really long time since we've had such a thoroughly enjoyable meal. And we eat out A LOT. Every single aspect was great. We were seated immediately. A nice gentleman brought us water and focaccia immediately after that. Our wonderful waiter is actually from Rome and had a really fun, dry sense of humor. The soups were... More

This restaurant is truly excellent and has withstood the test of time. When my wife & I lived in Seattle we visited Barolo several times before moving to Chicago in 2008. I visited again for a business meeting in March and it was exactly as I remembered. Excellent salads and excellent mains. The wine list is also very good. I... More

The cocktails, wine, food and service were delightful. Definitely on the pricey side, but I was warned of that by my colleague, so the sticker-shock was not so bad. Plus was lucky enough to come during restaurant week and had a fantastic pre-fix meal. It's definitely a special occasion restaurant!

Been to this restaurant a number of times. It's not cheap, but the food and service has always been awesome. One of the very few places in Seattle where you can get Grilled Calamari ( no idea why this is the case) and it's always fantastic . Seafood is super fresh. Highly recommended

Looking for a really nice dining experience, we selected Barolo because it was so highly touted on Trip Advisor. The decor was attractive if spare - sort of modern, industrial-techno - and our waiter outstanding. Unfortunately, the pasta in a main course was seriously under cooked. Not just al dente, but almost crunchy. An inexcusable faux pas in a high-end... More

I had a fabulous time at Barolo. I came with a large group that they were able to put into a side pocket part of the main restaurant, so it felt like you were in a private space, but could still see outside. Even though I came here with a group, I think this would be a great date location.... More

A bit expensive but very good. A very large wine list and premium meet variety. The service is flawless
