Behind lace curtains, in a candlelit room suited to soul-satisfying meals, where the pasta is hand-cut as you watch from your bar stool, and where conversations fill the space with the warmth of a Piedmontese trattoria, you’ll find one of Seattle’s best Italian wine lists. There may be just a dozen wines offered by the glass, yet there’s always something well matched to the plates, like a nebbiolo from the Langhe to pair with tiny envelopes of pasta filled with braised goat dressed in marjoram butter. The bottle list is a master class in Piedmont classics—well-priced Langhe nebbiolos from Marchesi di Gresy, Cantina del Pino and more, Barolos from Conterno, Bovio, Pecchenino and Sandrone, plus Giacomo Borgogno vintages going back nearly 50 years.
