Il Terrazzo Carmine, owned and operated by Carmine Smeraldo, is one of Seattle's true dining anomalies - a highly successful restaurant with unfailingly high standards and a loyal, sophisticated clientele. The cuisine has been acclaimed as Seattle's best by the media and more importantly, by local diners.
Il Terrazzo Carmine is located in historic Pioneer Square - nestled in an urban-renewed alley with entrances through the vintage lobby on First Avenue or through the delightful courtyard in the back. Since 1984, Carmine Smeraldo's classic Italian restaurant has been where the locals have chosen to return over and over again. From the Carpaccio Di Bue and Spaghettini Dell 'Ortolano for lunch to the Suprema Di Pollo Farcita and Zuppa Di Pesce for dinner you will know you have gone to a place where excellence is a way of life. Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Seattle, Il Terrazzo serves classical Italian cuisine with an atmosphere you may want to call home and never leave

    Disappointed with the service. The main problem was the wine service and the mismanagement. We ordered a bottle of white wine, expecting it to be chilled. The manager repeatedly tried to pour while it was notably warm and did not help with an alternative solution until we had to suggest. We didn’t receive drinks until an hour after we were sat. It was disappointing especially with a certified sommelier dining at the table. The dinner server was nice and the experience and slow service was not her fault.

    Always a favorite in the dining room for a fancier evening out or in the bar area prior to sports events - never pretentious and always top notch service (even in my team jersey and sneakers 🙂).
