With the mandatory tip in place, the servers seemed to careless about providing exceptional service. We never had or drinks or water refilled, we were not asked if everything was alright. It was a horrible dinning experience.

We came with a gift certificate for dinner for 2 won at a recent auction, good for S -->Th. We wanted to go on Saturday, and so we called and they happily accommodated us - first of a series of nice gestures. We arrived at 6 this past Saturday and asked to be seated outside, which they also happily accommodated, though we were the first. Our server was a delightful women and a lovely evening unfolded. Terrific cocktails, a fabulous salad, and really tasty main courses, 2 terrific glasses of wine, and shared piece of coconut cream pie (YUM!) - a terrific, relaxing, tine. Though our GC was for "2 dinners" and additionally stated that drinks, dessert, tax or tip (these last 2 we expected) were not included. When the bill came, everything was included, save the service charge (we would happily have paid that and more by way of a tip) and, of course, the tax. The total for entire meal, with cocktails, wine and dessert, was under $45! We will certainly be back, ready (and willing) to pay our way sans a GC the next time. :)

Thanks again!

Steak which was supposed to be medium-well, came back as overcooked, very dry and hard to chew. Steak was sliced and it was really obvious that it is overcooked to them.
The waitress was not accurate and spilled some sweat drink on one of the guests while serving the other.
Food is OK, but not great. Definitely not at the level they are trying to position themselves.

Catching up with my wife's cousin after 30 + years. Staff was great no push to order, letting us visit and order when we were ready. Food was outstanding and what can you say about the coconut cream pie - perfection.

Very attractive restaurant with much ambiance. Food portion was a bit small but the homemade pasta was superb.
It was my Wife’s birthday and the restaurant gave her a nice signed card and small bundle of their own pasta- nice touch.

Seated earlier than our reservation in a location of our choice (outside). Friendly and efficient waitstaff. Very accommodating bartender who came out to the table to ask me questions about a drink I wanted him to make up - came out great! Very good appetizers and main course (their pasta is very good). Good single glass wine choices. This was my second time back and can’t wait to go again.

Fabulous dinner. The prosciutto and peach appetizer was excellent. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs which was tasty and meatballs were as good my own homemade ones. The angliotti was absolutely delicious. Raphael was an outstanding server. I would highly recommend dining at Trattoria Cuoco.

The spaghetti and meatballs special early Monday evening is wonderful. It was my first time at a Tom Douglas establishment, and I am starting to understand the buzz.

My server's name was Colt, and he was exceptional. I had several unusual requests and he made them happen, all while conversing gamely with me and verifying I was more than adequately satisfied. I added an additional amount to my check, on top of the 20% service fee. I tied up a table for two hours, and the service fee only came to $5.00. Plus, I was told the individual server only gets 14% of the 20% fee. Colt definitely deserved more than $3.50 for the time and attention he lavished on me.

I live on the Eastside, and am not frequently downtown on a Monday afternoon. But when I am, I'll be back and will hope Colt is available when I am.

The homemade pasta was fantastic. We brought our own wine. The waitress was warm and polite. The value, however, is questionable. On a $150 tab for 2 appetizers, 2 pastas, drinks and dessert, our final was $210 when the 20% service barge and 12% tax was added. The service charge is also taxed so can get the same fine meal for much less outside of Seattle city limits.

Food is always outstanding. Nice servers, great happy hour menu. I really liked the white wine on happy hour! Kale Caesar is amazing and even the bread is spectacular. Come on Mondays for the all-you-can-eat spaghetti and meatballs. Truly an amazing deal and the quality of the food does not suffer one bit. Even better - come Monday during happy hour to experience the best of both worlds!

I went to Cuoco with a friend as a joint birthday celebration. Food was delicious and the staff was very attentive. I had received a coupon for a free dessert to use at any of the Tom Douglas Restaurants during my birthday month. When I presented it to the server he graciously provided another free dessert to my friend whose birthday was the day after mine. I so appreciate the outstanding customer connections that are made at this and all the other Tom Douglas restaurants!

We arrived at 5:15 and it was fairly quiet and easy to hear each other. Food and service were tremendous. The sound level was moderate when the restaurant was full by 6:15. The food was over the top.

As always, my entire experience at Cuoco was amazing. I ordered the rigatoni, which is a personal favorite since I love spicy foods and this one has just a little kick. We also shared the meatball appetizer, which is packed with flavor. Our server was very friendly, with just the right amount of attentiveness. A perfect place for a rare dinner between two very busy friends.

The service was impeccable. The arrancini super delicious. Each entree perfectly designed to be as scrumptious as possible. And the desserts were too much and yet I don’t regret indulging.

We tried the gnocchi, the lasagna, and the pasta with the sausage ragu. For dessert we had the tiramisu, the coconut cake, and the budino.

Go now, go often!!

This is one of the best restaurants we have been to. The food was excellent; great taste, flavors and presentation were great too. The server greeted us with a warm smile, and looked happy to be there. Made our dining experience very pleasant. Would definitely come here next time we are in Seattle.

The entree was delicious and the presentation was good. Our waitress was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive but not overly so. The decor was fine except for the 3D picture on the wall of a lady in a bathtub. The art was fine except itwas just so out of place with the rest of the decor that it was distracting. The serving size was what I'd expect from an appetizer, if it was twice as big I would of been mildly disappointed. A mixture of good and poor at Cuoco.

Wonderful meal on patio. Our BringFido app had told us that they were dog friendly on the patio, but they had changed their rules and no longer allowed dogs. The hostess made room for us right at the edge of the patio, and we had a fabulous meal! Our pup just slept in the shade, like he always does, so no one even knew/cared he was there.

The service here really sets them apart. Very friendly and attentive. The food is very good, but not exceptional. Everything is delicious, it’s just not mind blowing, so I understand why I read a lot of 4-star reviews. In the end we were glad to have come, and I would go back because the service was exceptional. We did the squid ink linguini with clams, the gnocchi with brown butter and sage, The spaghetti with meatballs, the crispy octopus, the beet salad, and the burrata.

Unremarkable menu, with average approaches to the pasta dishes. Nothing that makes it distinctly Northern Italian from my experience. And I'm not fond of the cheerleading approach to service. Quiet spot. Looks like others find it interesting.

This was our first visit to Cuoco. The service was great. The ambiance is nice - not fancy or casual. Just right. The meal was good. The red sauce was dark and earthy. Nothing wrong with that, but not my taste, exactly. All-in-all a good meal. I would return to try it again.

We went to Cuoco on a Friday night and had a very nice experience. There was some type of restaurant-related event outside with a DJ, but it didn't affect the noise level inside. The service was quick and efficient though not outstanding. The food, however, was outstanding. We shared several appetizers, including some of the best foccacia I have every eaten. Our party of four shared four different pasta dishes and enjoyed every bite. We finished with coconut cream pie and tiramisu. All in all a very enjoyable meal.
