I'll add Staple and Fancy, How to Cook a Wolf, Rione XIII, and Serafina to the list of favorite Italian places.

"Italian" is so broad, the possibilities are kind of endless...

There are several really great salumerias in Seattle, like Salumi, Armandino's, and Bar Cotto (which Frank mentioned).

Less refined, more American-style, old school Italian comfort food (but still delicious, IMO! You can count on some chicken marsala, lasagne, and spaghetti and meatballs somewhere on the menus):

Pasta Freska - I love this place for the chef (Mike) who is like a good friend by the end of your meal, for the surprise, multi-course format (no menu), and for the fact that it's a fun experience for my non-foodie, picky-eater friends too. It's not high-brow, award-winning food, but it's yummy and a fun experience.

Ristorante Machiavelli

Bizzarro Italian Cafe

... to name a few.

Machiavelli has long been one of my favorites.

Find me a "Farm to Table" restaurant that's also wallet friendly. And don't tell me that it's affordable because the entrees are only 55 dollars.

Discovered a new delicious Vietnamese street food hole in the wall place ballled Banh Town today at Greenwood Ave N and 104th St in North Seattle. I'm sitting here with dancing taste buds devouring excellent lemongrass pork banh mi and prawn lotus root salad with sesame rice crisps. Having been to SE Asia a number of times, I don't give out cuisine complements lightly. Here is the link: Bánh Town

Whoops, big fingers, small keys on my smart phone above. I meant to say "called" Banh Town. Try it, the food was very, very good.

Great thread guys! I'll definitely be trying out some of the Italian recs as that's my favorite cuisine.

Can anyone recommend some good pizza spots that has really good thin crust? I've tried quite a few pizza spots out here and they all either burn their thin crust, or consider thin crust to be Neapolitan-style, which I dislike.

The city or Eastside would be convenient, but I'm willing to travel if it's really good! Thank you!
