This is an excellent, small restaurant run by a friendly couple. The food is always excellent and it's like eating with friends - especially at the bar. I love to watch Carlo make the pizzas. The meat and fish are always very fresh and tasty. The only down side is, like most restaurants on 152nd in Burien, it can be... More

This is a small wife and husband-type of place. He cooks, she waits tables. Nice surroundings, nothing fancy. Easy parking. Good wine list. (Best wine list style I have seen; has pictures, pairings, etc. Good for knuckleheads like me) Food is terrific; salads merely really good. Pasta and pizza excellent. Desserts excellent. Service is slowish (To American standards) when busy.... More

Excellent food and service, our party of four ate the venetian fish antipasti, risotto Nero, frag pasta with shrimp, grilled fish, soft shell crabs and grilled sepia. We loved it and will go back. Paulo and his entire family are awesome.

I had fig and gorgonzola ravioli, it was very good. Served piping hot which gets big points in my book. $40 for two people so not inexpensive but you get what you pay for, I will pay a little more for a place with fresh linen on the tables instead of paper, where you don't have to scream to be...

This place is quiet and hidden on the 152nd strip in Burien. The service is nice and the food feels traditional and true. Some very rich and hearty dishes. Everything I've tried has been wonderful. One of my favorites is the gnocchi. Rich, creamy and filling. If you enjoy true Italian dishes, I'd recommend giving this place a try.

We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. They have a very interesting menu and a huge wine list. For those who need to eat gluten free, they have bread, pasta and pizza available along with many other gf menu options. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. Do yourself a favor and give... More

My sister found this restaurant because she frequents the bakery across the street and craved Italian for her birthday. I treated her to dinner at Osteria Da Primo. Perfect choice if you are craving Italian, authentic Italian. We started with deep fried artichoke hearts with spicy aioli, perfectly cooked and the aioli had a very balanced garlic/mayo flavor, superbly done.... More

We came here with sisters and brothers-in-laws to celebrate my birthday, and had a wonderful time. We had very good service, and we each tried something different. My Pollo alla Carlo was great: chicken breast with herbs, Marsala wine, and mushrooms. I've had their pizza before, and it's fixed in a wood-fired pizza oven in the back corner of the... More

Have heard about this restaurant for a few years, and finally decided to make a reservation for a special occasion. We were seated quickly, but waited for frigging-ever for someone to take our drink order (it was 15 minutes, I timed it). We were going to get up and leave, when drink order finally taken. Then, had to ask for... More
