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

    It’s always a pleasure to dine at Il Terrazzo. The food is consistently first rate, the service is excellent — the wait staff are committed to making sure your experience is superb— and the ambiance is charming. This is Seattle’s best dining experience as far as I’m concerned.

    Lovely interior and outdoor patio set the stage for high quality, well prepared dishes from start to finish. Gracious, relaxed yet attentive service make for an intimate dinner for two to a large party. Veal scaloppine and cioppino were standouts on a recent visit and daily specials for fish and risotto always shine. Less enamored with the pesto fettuccine with prawns which was over sauced. Excellent salads and sautéed spinach and a near perfect linguine with clams make this a reliable spot for Italian standards.

    We dined here for my birthday. The food and service were outstanding! I’d highly recommend the veal entrees and anything with the Amarena cherries!

    We had a pasta dish with wild-caught salmon, asparagus, and a cream sauce. This was very well prepared. It was a generous portion. I also had a small bowl of soup for an appetizer: white bean and a different pasta -- also excellent. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We split the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. It was a bit crumbly, doubtless due to the absence of flour and its gluten, which can bind together other dishes. Il Terrazzo Carmine is my favorite restaurant in Seattle. It can be a bit noisy at dinner, so we sometimes go for lunch instead.
