Seattle's Little Italy

Welcome to Seattle's Little Italy! Where the food is authentic and you are always at home.

Visit Seattle's largest concentration of Italian restaurants & shops. Seattle's Little Italy is a destination & an idea that our community makes possible. Bring your friends and family!

Come experience Al Boccalino, the star of our Little Italy. You'll find white linen on the tables and classic Italian cuisine served with a distinctively creative flair (anyone for Osso Buco?). We buy from local growers so every meal is bursting with the melded flavors of fine herbs, fresh seasonal vegetables and prime meats. At Al Boccalino, you'll want to make an evening of it.

If you desire a light, spontaneous meal, pop in at Cafè Bengodi, where you'll find a score of pastas to choose from, plus a wide selection of sandwiches, risottos and pizzas. Like all of Luigi's eateries, Café Bengodi serves only traditional Italian fare, and you won't leave hungry. Accompany your meal with a fine espresso, wine or beer. Al Fresco dining makes this a delightful place for good friends and great food.
