There are places that just fit instantly, like Cinderella's slipper, and this is one. I felt immediately comfortable in at our table, and then the parade of simple, elegant and perfectly executed flavors began. I am still thinking about the parsnip flan, the lamb and mint ravioli, the rabbit meatballs and the rice gelato with chamomile. If there weren't so many choices for fine dining in Seattle, I would be here every single time I went out to eat!

For the hype and the cost very disappointing
Anatra alla ruche was inedible, the duck cooked to the point that it was tough, basically shoe leather, the Trota con bagnet vert also was over cooked. Gamberi e fagioli, poached and marinated wild prawns tasty,but only one prawn,

We order the 125 tasting menu, The pasta was good, but for the price, the food
was not up to expectations.

The thin pasta with butter and sage was great. That alone is reason enough to go. They don't have a big menu at all though, so be careful with bringing picky eaters.

We took our time and spent the big bucks to try as much as possible. The food was wonderful, watching the guy make pasta was fun, and our server was very knowledgable. A must go!

This little restaurant is a definite "need a reservation" but is worth the extra effort. The atmosphere is simple but charming. We were able , from our table to watch the angel hair pasta being made. Our 8 year old daughter was intrigue. The pasta was outstanding, especially the ragu. Lucky us, our server brought us the wrong pasta , so we tried the extra pasta dish that we had considered. It was ravioli stuff with greens in an amazingly light and complementary sauce. The desserts were excellent as well. The service was very good and our server was engaging and funny. In her defence, the pasta screwup was probably because we were waffling between the two , when we ordered. If you are in Seattle, do not miss this restaurant .
