“A nice experience”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The service was incredibly friendly and accommodating to the point of serving a half glass of wine even though it was not on their menu. The undercooked pork chop was graciously whisked away and returned properly cooked. I would advise patrons to request that the chef go light on the salt as even my husband who salts pizza did not want more salt.

“Excellent food but pricey”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Went here with a friend for dinner. Staff was excellent, they remembered my friend after his last visit.

The menu features mainly high end italian dishes and seafood. I had a blackened cod with spinach which was excellent. The house salad is a nice starter as well.

The finale however was the bread pudding which I'd say was one of the top 10 desserts I've ever had.

The only downside is that the acoustics can make it a bit noisy.

“Another Reason to Visit Belltown- Great Italian”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Decided to try Branzino based on the high ranking from fellow Trip Advisor posters. And we were not disappointed. The restaurant has a great small neighborhood feel, but certainly delivers big city flavor. Planned on having the namesake fish but the diverse wine list offered a Brunello at a fair price. As noted by others the Pappardell with braised shortribs is a must order, even if shared as an appetizer. Chicken Picatta and Carlton pork chop were very well prepared. Tasted the meatballs as well and they had a pleasant amount of spice.

I would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.

“Great wine, great food, great service!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

A romantic spot in Belltown to eat yummy food and drink bold wine. My husband had tuna (sadly they were out of Branzino) and I had the Pappardelle (big pasta noodles with short ribs) - ask for bread, it's tasty! Our server was beautiful, attentive and knowledgeable. A smart stop for a Wednesday night. We've been to this bar before and they pour a BIG glass of wine! Love it!

“Just what I needed”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Perfect atmosphere, pretty small, cosy, open kitchen, just next to the bar.
Pretty simple dishes but with the best cooking and ingredients quality, freshness and combination they are just perfection.
The cheapest glass of regional red wine was just as perfect.
Excellent service too.
