Cantinetta – Seattle, WA
This is your quintessential neighborhood restaurant. Adorable brick corner location in Wallingford. The food is just as cozy as the inside of this place feels. It’s the perfect spot to catch up with an old friend, enjoy a date night, or celebrate with a group. I hadn’t been for a while and it was so satisfying going back. I can never say no to one of their housemade pasta dishes and I love when I get a view of the chefs making the pasta behind the glass windows. Everything was outstanding with the exception of one dish – the baby artichoke zeppole with fennel and horseradish creme fraiche. It wasn’t bad, but I was just hoping for more. I didn’t feel like the artichoke was the star of the dish which I think it should have been. Other than that it was a wonderful night full of great food, wine and company.
