    Great bottle of wine to go along with our dinners helped us enjoy a leisurely dinner before our show. We had such a good time we had to hurry after letting the time get away from us.

    The food was excellent! It was Seattle restaurant week and we did the prix fixe with the delicious burrata and crostini, the saltimbocca with prosciutto was very tasty, and the panna cotta just the right touch to end the meal. The restaurant was quite noisy, but that is because folks are a bit crowded together. A very good choice when you want Italian in downtown Kirkland.

    We go here all the time and the food is outstanding. Last night the service was extremely slow. Our guests even commented several times about it. The waiter had a cold and did wear a mask, which we appreciated. I imagine they are short staffed, like everyone else. It's still a VERY good restaurant - just be prepared to wait a bit for your drinks!

    A memorable experience. Our waiter was patient, friendly and pleasant. Every dish was delicious -- we tried risotto, gnocchetti, the awesome chicken stuffed with spinach and cheese, and lasagna. We enjoyed the outdoor seating but the inside looked beautiful and cozy too. I would go back in a heartbeat.

    Waiter was slow to show up and not friendly. We went for our favorite pollo limone. The veggies were barely warm and the sauce was pink. Chicken was just ok. We got seated in the back next to the kitchen behind a wine shelf. It was dark. There were few people in the restaurant when we showed up. Won’t go back to what was once one of our favorite restaurants.
