Cinque Terre is a beautiful area of the Italian Riviera which is comprised of five villages. The towns are connected by medieval style walkable paths. These villages are a favored destination for travelers to Italy where seafood is prevalent. Pesto, a condiment made of fresh basil, is the flagship of tradition in the region. At Cinque Terre, we make our pesto every day from the freshest and top quality ingredients. We always have on the menu, Muscoli (mussels), Polpo (octopus), Gamberi (shrimp) and a variety of seasonal seafood, artisan pizzas along with house-made pastas.

    Excellent dining choice. Started off with prosciutto and burrata and grilled octopus. The cheese was very creamy and the ham cured beautifully, with the octopus charred nicely. Then we chose lasagna and zuppa di pesce. The lasagna was extremely light and delicate. We added pasta to the fish, which was homemade and delicious. The broth was silky smooth yet very flavorful, the fish fresh and cooked perfectly. Shout out to our excellent server Jessica, whose recommendations were fantastic and friendly demeanor wonderful. One of the best southern Italian restaurants we’ve been to in years.

    We are visiting Seattle and this dinner turned out to be a highlight. Our server Mie was fantastic! Knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The restaurant is elegant without being stuffy. We’ve been in the Cinque Terre region of Italy before and the food was comparable. Lovely wine list too.

    The food was AMAZING!! Fresh delicious bread, flavorful starter (carpaccio di manza) and homestyle/hearty entrees (lasagna and the best pesto I’ve eaten). Our hostess, Julie, and waitress, Jessica, were both wonderful and friendly! The service was fast, but we did not feel rushed. Could have appreciated quieter music levels, but overall we loved our experience! They even gave a treat for my boyfriend’s birthday 🥹

    We went for our one year wedding anniversary! It was truly incredible, delicious and we had a wonderful server! I didn’t catch his name, but he traveled across America on a motorcycle which is pretty amazing! He did a wonderful job! Also, the Hostess was pretty amazing too, she greeted us with a huge smile was approachable and friendly! From the first course to the last- everything tasted amazinggggg! We had the octopus, margarita pizza, lemon fettuccine with shrimp and a beautiful steak. We shared everything, and than was surprised with an Anniversary tiramisu! Our friends called over the phone and actually paid for our meal, a spectacular bottle of wine & the restaurant handled everything so lovely!

    Unfortunately this was the worst dining experience I think I've ever had. We were seated, waited 30 minutes for anyone to come - brought 2 of our 3 drink orders but I waited over an hour for a glass of wine. We ordered an appetizer which never came. Waiter acted surprised when he came to "check on us" after 40 more minutes (!!!) We ordered 3 entrees which, after several more "wellness checks" came out more than 2 hours after we initially arrived - and 2 of the 3 were the wrong thing. We would have walked out but there was nowhere to go and it was by then almost 9pm. Honestly, it was almost comical. Waiter was falling all over himself apologizing and comped the meal, but we were there 3 hours and never received the food we actually ordered. I don't know what was going on that night, but other diners who were seated an hour after us got their food and paid their bills and left. Our waiter was apologetic but continued to get everything wrong. He repeatedly asked us to "remind him" what we'd ordered - which did not inspire confidence that he'd actually put the orders in. In the end all of his apologies fell flat - it seemed to be mostly his ineptitude that caused all the problems. What a disaster. Never again.

    We had excellent service and a nice time but the food is really just mediocre. We all ordered recommended seafood and pesto dishes and felt consistently that the dishes were under seasoned and salted for all of our palates. Nice seafood that needed better accompanying sauces and flavor.

    Three of us were attending a conference in Seattle and dined here. Overall it was very good and I'd recommend it. The service got a little slow as the evening progressed but I attribute that to all the service problems left over as the world recovers from the worst of the pandemic.
