Ever since returning from my culinary studies in Italy years ago, I’ve had a passion for the craft of handmade pasta. I’ve always been amazed at the nuance of flour from different grains (farro, buckwheat, semolina,ect..)and the infinite textures and shapes that can be achieved with just rudimentary tools -the way they perfectly pare with seasonal ingredients and sauces, gives me my daily inspiration.

Ohhhh my goodness, Il Corvo is my favorite Italian place in all of Seattle. It’s only open for lunch, which is a bummer, but I’ll take it whenever I can get it.

The pasta is DELICIOUS. It’s always perfectly cooked, and there’s nothing like fresh pasta. I’ve loved everything I’ve tried, and so has every other person I’ve brought to eat there. The menu changes daily (though they always have a set of back-up sauces in case you don’t like the daily options), and there’s almost always at least one fully vegetarian option (watch out for the anchovies in some of their sauces).

If you don’t go early, there can be a bit of a line, but don’t worry–they turn out the dishes really quickly, and the tables will turn over faster than you might expect. Even with a line to the door, you might be done eating within 30-45 minutes or so.

I love love love love love Il Corvo. Go and try it! It’s soooo good! Review Via Angela S.
