A friend recommended that we come here and it did not disappoint. Four of us ordered a bunch of dishes family style and shared. The butter sage pasta was insanely rich and delicious (4 of us shared a full portion and couldn't have eaten anymore). The service was great and we enjoyed all the waiters recommendations. Cocktails and ambiance also great. I will go back when I am in Seattle.

One of our favorite places in Seattle. You feel like you’re in Italy. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the sage butter pasta which is usually superb was too buttery. There was not enough edge to balance as I could only taste too much butter..everything else was delicious!

I would definitely recommend Spinasse to a friend to try at least once in their lifetime. The food and cocktails taste great and the service is excellent. The only negative thing I have to say is the value of the food for the price. I would go again during happy hour or restaurant week.

Spinasse was a wonderful experience. The food on this visit wasn't quite as transcendental on our previous visits (things were slightly overly salted), but we will always return due to the general consistency of food quality overall and amazing service.

One of our favorite places on Capital Hill! We generally go early before a theater performance, but it still a good idea to have a reservation. At lease one of generally gets the pasta special. This time it was rabbit agnolotti - tiny little ones in a double bordo sauce. The goat cheese gnocchi with nettle ragu was also wonderful. We started with the "Insalata di ceci" - a chickpea salad with ruhbarb and fiddleheads - a real spring treat!

The best words to describe the dinner are Culinary magic!

The server was very personable, and extremely knowledgeable and had wonderful advice.

Each of the items ordered were extraordinary. Presentation was very pleasing. The first bites of each dish were in fact a delightful shock as in, how could it be this good!

I took my daughter here for her 21st birthday and it was such a special dinner!

One of the top meals both of us have had!

We have loved Spinasse however this time was less than impressive. The pasta with pork and beef ragu was exceedingly salty. The cavatelli with lamb sauce better but in the past, the food has felt head and shoulders above other higher end restaurants. This time not so much. Service was good. Noise level was higher than I remember during past dining experiences. I guess when dinner for 2 comes to around $160 for salads, a question of house wine, pastas, a shared dessert and coffee, I expect more.

The pasta, made in-house on the spot, was fantastic, our servers were a delight to talk to, and the ambiance of the restaurant could not be beat for such a small, intimate place. My wife and I went here for our thirteenth anniversary, and we will definitely be back for a future special event. :)

its just OK. if you are an Italian food Connoisseur, you might be disappointed Their signature dishes use angel hair pasta which was not ideal for the dish. the butter and sage dish was over powered by sage, so it was really the only taste you got.

The ambiance is also just OK- be prepared for no one to take your coat and hang it up... your doing that yourself. it's a bit too casual for what the food network says is one of the best Italian restaurants in the US.

I was with two colleagues who travel extensively and dine in great restaurants all over the world, and our experience at Spinasse was equal or better than the best of the best.
