List is basically a nightclub pretending to be a restaurant. It’s so dark (and only lit with red lightbulbs) that you are actually at serious risk of tripping over yourself, it’s trying incredibly hard to be sexy, and on the weekends it’s usually crowded with good-looking people gazing into each other’s eyes. This is the date-night hub of Belltown, and it’s where you should bring someone if you’re more concerned with what’s going to happen after you leave the restaurant. The two gnocchi dishes are probably what you want to eat - order both with stiff cocktails, and you’ll be fine. If there’s a wait for a table (likely), head to Amber up the street for a drink in the meantime.

Serious Pie has two locations, but we like the one in Belltown best. Use it for date night or a group dinner, and get as many pizzas as possible.
Shaker And Spear
Besides being in a highly attractive space, Shaker + Spear also has excellent seafood. It’s a great spot for a nicer group dinner in Belltown.
Shiro’s in Belltown will serve you some seriously great sushi - with no pretense, and no distractions.

Stoneburner is an Italian-American spot in Ballard with great Neapolitan pizza and not-so-great pasta.
Raccolto is a West Seattle Italian spot from the same people behind Contadino, and the pasta is almost as good. If you can’t get a seat, try the bar.
