    Service was great. Food was amazing. Could not have asked for a better experience. Watched the noodles be made as we dined at the bar. Shared many dishes with my beautiful girlfriend. Eric tended to all of our needs with knowledge and a disarming way about him. Love it!

Our party of 5 will never forget this amazing experience of great food and wine, incredible service, a relaxed and beautiful environment! All of the reviews of this 5 star restaurant are deserved!

    Service was terrible as usual. We had a reservation and we still had to wait for 15 mins to get our table, even though it was 9pm and the restaurant was not full. We asked to go to the bar in the meantime and we were told no. When ordering we asked for separate checks ( we needed this as this was a business dinner) - they said no. When we asked for an explanation they didn’t even bother to provide one. Food was ok- we’ve been here before and food was better last time. Service has always been awful- I’m really not happy to pay Pay 20% service fee / tips for that kind of service.

    I was greeted by Julia who was very welcoming and accommodating for my early arival. I sat at the bar where I could watch the servers and kitchen staf. I was waited on by both the manager Sarah and Tessa. Sarah made a great drink recomendation and Tessa was attentive. The team work and overall customer focus was top notch. They were very well organized and focused. The food matched my expectations and sous chef Ian made sure the quality was on point. I had the appetizer sampler, ragu tajrin, chingale and semifreddo. All of which were brought out at a nice pace and were packed with flavor. The ragu was especially memorable. Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area or in the area. The staff is great and the food is excellent

    Wow. Everything we ordered was just amazing! This is the reason you go out for dinner. The food was so elevated and delicious, it really blew our mind’s! We ordered the Angel hair pasta with sage, barolo braised beef cheek on a bed of celeriac purée, and the kale. So amazing! I don’t know why we don’t eat there once a month!

    They preface it when you first sit down, but Spinasse is focused on Piedmonte-style Italian food, which means it is very butter / cream-forward. We got the tasting menu, and while everything individually was good, but every single dish (minus the appetizers) was SO heavy that we had to take home so many leftovers. It would ben nice to have something fresh on each dish to break it up. If I were to come back, I would probably get the mix of antipasto (the porchetta tonnatta was our favorite dish of the evening) and one pasta pp. Also, some cocktails - they were great, too. Also noteworthy - we were celebrating and they barely acknowledged it besides confirming our reservation and at the end when we got our bill. I'm fine without a comped dessert, but it would have been nice to give us some chocolate or something. In short: for $200 pp, you can have a much better celebratory meal elsewhere.

    After arriving at the restaurant I realized I had made a calendar entry for my reservation for the wrong day. Happily, the gracious hostess was able to accommodate us with counter seats. This allowed us to watch the pasta chef work dough into several different type pastas— so much fun! Cocktails here are unusual but delicious and the wine selection was good. Our sage pasta and tagliatelle was super too. A bruschetta with cheese was a bit under seasoned. The butternut squash salad was great. As is the current trend, the cost of dining here was fairly high.

    Cabbage slaw was good, Butter sage noodles came out too soft and might have been sitting on the food warmer longer than it should. Lamb risotto good. Mushroom side dish good. Pear dessert too much cream after a very rich meal.

    Went here for my husbands birthday. Food was good but not as great as expected. We ordered the Parma, ragu pasta, salmon entree, and mushrooms. Service was quick, however, we didn’t find the server or hostess to be very friendly. I requested a special dessert for my husbands birthday a month in advance (which I have before at other restaurants and they would normally bring out a dessert with a candle etc.) but Spinasse did not, which was very disappointing. The server came to our table after our meal gave us the bill and said “happy anniversary”. After I paid the bill, no one said bye to us. It just felt awkward. When your paying big $$$ I would expect the service to be more friendly, welcoming, and accommodating to the guests needs.

    What a wonderful experience! We were first timers, and we wanted to try this place out because it was highly recommended by several friends. Everything we ordered was delicious. The service size was perfect for sharing (there were 4 of us). We had the famous brown butter, sage pasta along with the cavatelli pasta, braised boar, pancetta ripiena, and a side of funghi. Absolutely incredible! The flavors were robust and the pasta done to perfection. We finished dinner off with three of their desserts. We had their gelato, sorbet and some nutty caramel topped with a brittle and pistachio gelato. Lol. Needless to say we were very satisfied with our entire experience. Our server was knowledgeable in the menu and very engaging. We enjoyed the wines he recommended. We are looking forward to visiting this restaurant again! Cheers!

    The food is amazing, hands down and the fall menu is particularly tasty. We had the braised brisket bruschetta with fontina fonduta and chives for an appetizer, and the meat just fell apart. For entrees we enjoy the fine hand-cut egg yolk pasta with cultured butter and sage and cavatelli with roasted parsnips, pumpkin seeds, spinach, garlic-cream and pecorino. Both were rich and multi-dimensional from a flavor profile. Our waiter topped off the night with friendly and full service. Spinasse will always be a special place for us!

    On my first visit to the much touted Spinasse I was underwhelmed. The appetizer sampler had four dishes, all equally bland. Our pasta with a meat Ragu was fine, if a tiny bit overcooked. Finally, the entree's presentation was just terrible.

    Spinasse is the quaintest Italian restaurant in Seattle. The Tajarin with Butter and Sage pasta is the best pasta I have ever had, and come back again and again. Not to mention the incredible staff they have, and the varying amounts of wine you can order! Spinasse is absolutely worth it in every sense.

    Great ambiance, very quick service (was still chewing my last bite when the waiter took my plate away, felt a tad rushed). Food: uninteresting mixed antipasto, great pasta, delicious boar with huckleberry espresso sauce BUT everything was insanely over salty. I almost couldn't eat the boar ragu and the pasta sauce. That was very disappointing. The crostata and semifreddo were very tasty.

    Service was terrible. Food was average and not worth returning after the snottiness and condescension of the hostess. She treated myself and my party as if we didn’t exist. She was a robot who just kept repeating come back at our reservation time instead of engaging in a conversation. This restaurant seems to be coasting on a reputation that it clearly does not live up to. Waiter never brought an extra plate we asked for and also had a unnecessary level of snobbiness. Don’t waste your time or your money here.

    Trust everything on the menu the chef’s know what they are doing. We started with the bruschetta and it was amazing albeit a bit off of what you would normally expect. Next up we had the risotto with lamb, combo unbelievably awesome. And we also had the Tajarin Al Ragu which was also amazing. We finished the night with a pear desert with a light sponge cake and mascarpone. Had no idea you could put all those together and have so much goodness. Service was amazing ambience was terrific, our table was even named the lovers table which was apropos. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    This place absolutely lives up to every bit of hype. We did the full course tasting menu, it was an insane amount of food, had to box up the last few entrees. The antipasti was all very fresh and delicious. The pastas, you could tell the noodles were hand made, so delicate and just so delicious. The gnocchi was amazing, everything was just so fresh. The entrees were beautiful even though we couldn't eat them all on the spot! It's such a great spot to celebrate, we were there for our anniversary. Highly recommended, staff were lovely too!

    Spinasse has been a staple of Capitol Hill for a long while. I always enjoy visiting. The food, namely pasta, is dependably good; and the service has been solid, as well.
