Bizzarro Italian Cafe

Perfect For:BirthdaysKids

Bizzarro Italian Cafe is part circus horror movie set, part awesome checkerboard-tablecloth Italian joint. We were skeptical of the fact that there are more chandeliers than a Home Depot showroom, and that the menu has an entree called, “choose your own chicken adventure.” But the weird carnival props hanging from the ceiling paired with Bizzarro’s really solid handmade pastas just work. You’d never think that this amount of thought and care would go into classic Italian food when the inside is like a cough medicine dream sequence, which is what makes this place great. It’s perfect for weeknight dinners with a big group of friends who won’t mind the bicycle dangling above them or the creepy radio static that plays in the bathroom. A couple bottles of red and pappardelle with mushrooms and cream later and you have yourself a very happy evening.

Il Corvo

Is getting in line for pasta at 10:30am on a weekday crazy? Maybe. But this is what you have to do at Il Corvo in Pioneer Square, and it’s worth it.

Artusi

Artusi is the bar version of Spinasse, the incredible Italian restaurant next door. For cocktails and small plates on Capitol Hill, it doesn’t get much better.
