We were in Seattle this past weekend for Robothon and Mini Maker Faire and the King Tutankhamen exhibit. We were looking for a restaurant for last evening, unsure exactly where we should go. We have a few favourites in Seattle but wanted something new, closer to where we decide to stay this time (Edgewater Hotel on the waterfront). We don’t normally stay that far west from Pike Place Market, and weren’t sure what we might find. OpenTable to the rescue!
After perusing our neighbourhood options we selected Tavolata based purely on reviews, menu, and proximity. Oh boy were we happy with this choice! We had several tasty treats from their standard menu: Mixed Salumi Board, Buffalo Mozzarella, Seared Scallops, and Ricotta Gnudi. The left picture shows our table after we demolished several of these dishes. The Gnudi was absolutely amazing.
The second picture is a view of their Monthly Sunday Feast (first Sunday of every month). This time they roasted whole pigs and served them “family style” to several dozen eager diners. Had we known about this event, we probably would have signed up! Everything looked delicious and of course a really unique experience.
Highly recommended, its a great neighbourhood restaurant. Its a little noisy but still great atmosphere. We will definitely be going back next time we are in Seattle.
