I enjoy a lot the risotto I eat. Good ambient in the terrace in summer. Very elegant inside also. You will enjoy your meal.

What else can be said? This is probably the best hole in the wall restaurant in West Seattle. Who knew a previous mini mart could be transformed to look so beautiful and rustic at the same time? The only downside is the limited amount of...More

This nice little Itallian restaurant looks to be a converted house. The food is good and the service is nice. You are really packed in, though. Pizza, pasta and main dishes, so you can get the full meal deal. Worth a visit if nearby.

If you can't make it to Italy for dinner La Rustica is a good second choice! La Rustica is one of the more authentic Italian restaurants in the area and the dinners there do not disappoint.

My wife and I have been dining at Guilio's place for many years and have never been disappointed. The calamari is to die for as well as the bread to soak up all of the squid yumminess. Good pasta dishes. The Boar is great

WOW! I am sorry that I did not see this question sooner. I hope you went to the restaurant and asked if they hire an interested person of your age. Many times workers begin by working in the kitchen doing dishes which is a... More
