Great local flavors. Homemade blueberry gelato dressed with a little olive oil & sea salt flakes was perfect ending. Cocktails on point

Food and libations are pretty good as are the portions. Service is a tad slow, but it’s such a small establishment. Not dinging them for it, just forewarning anyone who is impatient.

Seasonal Italian food. Fresh. Elevated familiar flavors and dishes with an occasional surprising twist. Prix fix menu is generous and artfully composed. Clean, contemporary space with a neighborhood vibe, suitable for a special occasion or casual night out. Friendly, down to earth service. There when you need them, but not overly obtrusive.

Vendemmia is our favorite restaurant in Seattle. We had friends in from out of town and had looked forward to taking them to Vendemmia. We were not disappointed! The menu had something for everyone and dessert was special.

Amazing food, and a very reasonable price. Great little spot tucked in a cute neighborhood. Great place to go if you don't want to deal with traffic of more busy areas. Parking is a breeze and the service is quick and personable. We will definitely be coming back!

This is a favorite to bring out-of-town guests, as well as for a date night. Service as always is friendly and professional, food is tasty and the menu is a little different each time with seasonal changes. The risotto with fresh peas was deliciously fresh-tasting, and bruschetta appetizer was wonderful.

We came for pasta. It was delicious. We also enjoyed a couple vegetable dishes. The quality of ingredients and intensity of flavor were satisfying. Service was steady and smooth. The restaurant faces west and was uncomfortably warm at sunset, but the open air dinning eventually made for an enjoyable scene.

This is our favorite neighborhood place for a great meal. It had been a bit noisy but since adding rugs it’s much nicer. Beautifully executed food and knowledgeable servers are something you can count on. Tried the risotto for first time - wonderful.

Interesting menu with lots of small plates and shareable options. The waitstaff did a great job of coordinating our selections. We liked being able to try so many different dishes, because it was hard to narrow down our choices. We will definitely be back.

Did was too salty. Set menu was good. Interesting flavors. Surprised that they didn't have more pasta considering that is supposed to be their specialty. The pasta we had felt a little dried out then insufficient time in water.

Great food, Great service. I just wish restaurants would address the high noise level. It was difficult to have a conversation without upping the volume. My ears were ringing from the noise assault.

Nice neighborhood spot. The rigatoni was quite good. The martine was okay, but a bit on the small side. The burrata salad was very good, a nice appetizer.

Food is terrific. Only complaint is that service seems indifferent. It is the only thing that separates this from a top tier spot.

This is a wonderful neighborhood gem. The food is excellent, definitely a fine dining experience with a casualness to it. The service is very attentive but not particularly friendly. The food prices are great for a fine dining experience. I'd like to see a little more choice offered on the wines but they are lovely wines. My only criticism is it is very noisy. Would be nice to add some buffering to make it more cozy and easier to have a conversation.
