La Medusa is the best spot in Columbia City for a date over a couple of glasses of wine and bowls of pasta. It’s a dimly-lit, romantic Italian restaurant that specializes in dishes from Sicily, like fried risotto balls, garlicky kale and raisins sauteed in olive oil with anchovy, and a bunch of handmade pastas that rotate on the menu often. One of the best we’ve had was mezzi rigatoni with lamb sausage in a parmesan broth, but you also can’t go wrong with their spaghetti marinara and a meatball (which is always on the menu).

Il Corvo review image

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.

Il Nido review image

Il Nido is an upscale Italian restaurant in West Seattle that specializes in homemade pasta and isn’t exactly worth the hype.
