My favorite restaurant in this city! The cioppino here is AMAZING. It's my go to meal. The lasagna is made just the way it's supposed to be. If you're lucky enough to be there when they have performers then you're in luck. I work at a hotel nearby and I recommend it all the time. The only thing is, it's sometimes hard to get a table for dinner if you're a last minute type person. They get busy, but fir good reasons. Enjoy!

I've been here twice now and can definitely say I'm a fan of their food. The atmosphere at night is perfectly warm with a teeny touch of class. If you want to eat here, and you should, be sure to make reservations WELL ahead of time. At least four days ahead. I also want to mention the subtle art of service has been perfected here. The wait staff is knowledgeable and professional, never smug or overbearing. I think this place does it right, but wouldn't be what it is without the mysterious Post Alley location that allows for the "hidden" appeal this place plays on so well. My most recent visit was with a group of friends in town from Miami, each with their own tastes. First with the drinks! One of my friends got an absinthe-based drink with a small plastic monkey hanging from the glass, which I thought was funny and creative. Their house wine comes in what looks like a hybrid beer/San Pellegrino bottle and is a generous individual serving. I had a G&T with Big Gin, which is Seattle based (and tasty). Overall, the drinks are nothing to rave about, but they do get points for creativity. The soft bread comes out with olive oil that will absolutely knock your socks off. It's herb infused and incredible. If you want to spring for the nominal extra charge, give their balsamic vinegar a try! It is aged and has depth of flavor and a kick like you've never had before. Appetizers came and we tried the calamari and la fettunta (grilled garlic bread) and while the garlic bread was great as expected, the real surprise treat, perhaps even star of the meal, was the calamari. It was prepared in a way that none of us had ever had and the quality of the meat was tender yet smooth, not spongey and slimy. I've tried the bolognese and the caesar with prawns so far, and both were excellent in their own right. The prawns were garlicky, peppery, and seared to my liking. The bolognese is a total win, if you can't decide which pasta to go for I would say it is a safe bet. I also got to try a bit of the lasagna, which the house claims as their signature dish. It's easy to see why when you taste it for yourself. ...and then there are the shows! Sun/Mon they do trapeze shows right in the restaurant, I was lucky enough to catch part of one and found it very entertaining. They have burlesque shows every Saturday where you can have dinner starting at 9 and the show starts at 11, but it's first come first serve. I have heard the venue is small but the show is great. It is still on my short list of things to do in the city. TL;DR Great Italian food, would recommend for out-of-towners. Just make a reservation well in advance! On a Sunday/Monday ask to be seated with a view of the trapeze. There is a burlesque show Saturday nights, invite me if you get tickets because I've never been.

This place has some pretty good eats. What I appreciated most was the homemade pasta! There was something different about it. It was lighter than most pastas I have had in the past. I tried their Tajarin which came with spinach, fresh grated parmesan and a raw egg yolk on top. I also tried their garlic bread with herbed olive oil. It was also good but a little cold. This is probably one of the better restaurants I got to try in Seattle. You might need to make reservations as it gets very busy.

Let me start by saying great staff. From the door to the waitress, everybody was so friendly and helpful. Our waitress recommended fish of the day and it was big enough for two and was delicious. Good wine pairing as well. BTW there is no sign for the place. Go through the pink door 😀

We were passing through Sacramento and found this place on Yelp. Wow, was it ever worth it to get off the highway for this! Even though I grew up in Chicago, this was the best gyros sandwich ever, with feta and fries inside! Awesome greek salad too! Fair prices, good service. Very recommended!

Pink Door is fabulous, and one of my favorite restaurants in the city. It's not often I'll eat Italian food out (mostly because I feel like I can make a better tomato sauce than most) but Pink Door is an exception. If you're walking by, you may mistake this as just another door in Post Alley BUT, if you know what you're looking for you've come to the right place. As soon as you enter you're greeted by scrumptious smells of Italian food that you've been long anticipating. The bottom of the staircase opens into an elegant, romantic dining room with wood finishes. The food here is so dang good. I love that it's not only vegetarian friendly, they don't just half ass the vegetarian options by frying everything in flavorless batter. Even the non meat options are well thought out, have a depth in flavor, and so delicious (I'm hollering at you, pesto!). I can't tell you what my favorite is, because I've never repeated a dish here. I love how they incorporate PNW flavors into their daily deliciousness. Here's a tip, if you see anything truffle, it's a must order! Finish off with a cappuccino because it's just what you do. If you come on the right night, there's a trapeze artist and burlesque show. I'd suggest coming on nights there's a performance. Great summer patio, too!

Cute elegant decor. Sat at the patio to enjoy my dinner. Oysters were fresh and juicy. Pasta was lovely. Nice dining experience. Reservation at patio recommended. $30 up per person.
