Went with another couple on the recommendation of her daughter who lives in Seattle. The food was fabulous as was the server and the ambiance. Not stuffy just very nice. We really enjoyed it. Reservations a must I think. Prices not bad for the quality of food. Loved the bread and tapenade.

I've a big fan of happy hours and I really enjoyed my experience at Barolo. You get 50% off the bar menu which includes really nice items. We had 3 dishes and a bottle of wine for ~$40. The food all tasted excellent and was presented nicely. The atmosphere is very classy and people are dressed well unlike most of... More

The burrata was good as was my fish. It was an enjoyable evening and the atmosphere was conducive to good conversation. One note: the tables are not too... More

I've never been here for actual dinner, but their happy hour is on point! Happy Hour is 7 days a week and goes until 6:30 - so it's actually feasible to get there after work. The food is good and the happy hour wine is delicious. I would highly recommend Barolo. The bar area isn't huge, so there is the... More

Fabulous fare from a happy hour menu that offers more than 3 choices at 50% off until 6:30 pm. House wine is $5 or beers $4. We had grilled cede radar with house made croutons and dressing, veal carpaccio that just melts, rigatoni al Ragu with just the right spiciness and of course Tiramus

I ate at a table in the bar and had superb service even though I was on my own. They went out of their way to make me comfortable and attended to. The food was delicious! Had the crab pasta... More

Family of four, me, my wife and our almost adult kids. Went there on a Thursday night and from the moment on that we've entered the place, it was a top notch experience. The staff was very committed to make sure we were doing fine, the advice on the wine was not referring to the most expensive wines on the... More

We were a family group of 10 and the restaurant gave us a private alcove to dine in. The service & food were excellent. We had two pasta dishes that were given a rave review by the ten of us. We all enjoyed everything we ordered. It's right downtown Seattle and close to hotels.
