Really sweet place to have a nice quiet dinner. Having been to Italy we appreciated the wine list. They were just opening when we were there and the dining room never warmed up throughout our meal, that was really the only negative. Service was good. Food was really good.

Plan to make a reservation for this tucked-away neighborhood Italian restaurant. Even in the middle of the week, every table will be full by 6pm. Service begins with a visual display and explanation of ingredients that the chef was able to find fresh that morning at the local markets. Those ingredients become the foundation for the daily specials and the... More

Excellent from start to finish! Wonderful aromas at the door, cordial greeting and quick seating. Cozy dining areas with generous space between tables. Staff including Chef Michael are friendly, attentive and responsive but never intrusive. Luscious wine, Caesar salad, beef marrow meatball appetizer, lobster risotto and sea bass entrees---all beyond expectation! Tiramisu and chocolate walnut torte fine accompaniments to possibly...

I came here for a group dinner and we were seated in a private back room. The service is great, very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive without being intrusive. The chef owns the place, and he came out to tell us about the menu for the evening. All items are made fresh daily with an emphasis on local ingredients. Our salads... More

Elegant little Italian Seafood restaurant in a strip mall that was a pleasant surprise. It was a little price but very nice & made for an enjoyable evening. We sat by the fireplace which added to the ambience. We would return on a future trip to the Burien or Seattle area.

Our son and daughter in law who lives in Seattle took us to Bistro Baffi for dinner. The atmosphere was "old school" ,the service superb and the meal was out of sight. I had a risotto dish that was to die for. The wine simply devine. Would we go back? In a heartbeat. In fact we have now planned to... More

This is a great choice to celebrate a special occasion. It is cozy and candle-lit, a little gem tucked away in a small strip mall. The food was delicious, and we especially enjoyed the house pasta with pink sauce. Only two desserts, but both were house made and delicious, although the walnut cake was more of a sliver than a...

Went to have some Italian, but after seeing the fresh seafood platter I couldn't resist and ordered the spaghetti with clams, mussels, salmon, scallops and spicy tomato sauce. Absolutely the best seafood I ever had!! Fresh, flavorful and very generous portion. They have their own wine. I had the pinot noir and it was excellent. Great little place!

In selecting this restaurant from the parking lot I did not expect the elegant ambiance. The display of wine bottles, the Mediterranean art work transformed me into another world. The menu was astounding! I did not know what to pick. I choose the Gusto salad, that was very refreshing and light. The wild salmon with capers and white wine sauce... More

Everything here is amazing, but I assure you I will never be seated or served by that woman again. It was truly appalling how we were treated.
