The Dish: Bizzarro Italian Cafe
A Seattle favorite since it opened in 1986, Bizzarro Italian Café is a buzzing and decidedly dressed-down trattoria with 5-star food. In this charming side street restaurant, tiny tables of couples and friends linger in mismatched vintage chairs with eclectic paintings on the deep crimson walls. Shabby chic chandeliers and furniture hanging from the ceiling, fresh flowers and huge garage doors that open to patio dining, contribute to the hip-yet-cozy interior that exudes casual warmth.
The menu is diverse without being huge and the house wine goes down easy like Sunday morning. If you are a seafood lover, do yourself a favor and get the clam linguini. It is so good you’ll want to lick the bowl!
