Seattle has no shortage of kickass pasta, but Raccolto could very well be this city’s new holy grail of carbs. It’s from the same people behind another one of our new favorite Italian restaurants, Contadino in Capitol Hill - but Raccolto’s in West Seattle.
Everything in the restaurant is either black, white, or wood, the cocktails are good, the servers are friendly, and they have a bar that was practically designed for solo eating - so if your friends flake on the dinner plan you made a month ago, drag your pasta-loving self here anyway.
Get the charred broccolette (new band name idea) and a cured meat plate, and unless you enjoy living with regret and sadness, the cavatelli cacio e pepe. It’s a bowl of black pepper-covered luxury, and also what we’ll be imagining the next time we hit rock bottom and have to resort to a cup of easy mac at home.
