The first thing that draws your eyes is the decor. Then the friendly wait staff impresses you. Finally the exceptional food amazes you. This place is everything you want in a restaurant. The best food I've eaten in a very long time.

We saw this restaurant on Triple D (Diners, Dives, and Drive Inns). We decided that we wanted to try it out. Generally, everything that we've seen on Triple has been favorable (except for the one hamburger joint in Seattle). Since we live in Seattle, we decided to try it out. We also checked "Trip Advisor" prior to going and most... More

Great Italian fare in a uniquely decorated establishment. Don't let the décor or the storefront dissuade you this is seriously good Italian fare. From the fresh bread and salad to their entrees. I settled for the pasta with and assortment of fresh mushrooms in a rich cream sauce, very earthy and wow for flavor. The wife selected the Margarita Pasta... More

One of my fav italian joints for great consistent italian (elk bolognese delicious). Typical of the neighborhood, a laid back vibe and great atmosphere will greet you at Bizzarros. Long wait on Friday/Saturday? No prob, the hostess will take your digits and you can have a drink next door at the Blue Star Pub and you'll be called once your... More

Overall great place! Definitely an “off the beaten path” find. The décor was so interesting and eclectic. The food was delicious! I had the elk spaghetti and meatballs and I was not disappointed. Their bread was so addicting. I would definitely recommend this place!

We were on a mom/daughters vacation in Seattle and looking for a memorable, non-touristy place for dinner. I suggested we look for a Triple D (Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives) place and voila! up pops Café Bizzarro. So glad we checked this place out because it was the food highlight of our trip. We went on a Sunday night and still... More

I discovered this little gem when I first moved to Seattle in 99 and it never fails to put me in a great mood. You walk into a loud, fun and playful atmosphere and immediately feel happier. The food is tasty and well portioned. I loved the Forest frenzy (mushrooms) and my friend had the clam linguine and Puttanesca. Great... More

Loved the decor, it was quite the conversation started. I went with a couple of colleagues and we shared the gnocchi, the lasagna, and the puttanesca. All were delicious, although when I go back, I'll eat the lasagna all by myself. The beet salad was great, as was the tiramisu. This is definitely a place I'll go back to. The... More

I have dined at Bizarro a few times over the last few years and always enjoyed the food. The service is usually fine too. However, my most recent experience has made me never want to dine there again and I feel it was completely avoidable. I dined there with a friend in mid November and we split the check on... More

After reading the reviews and seeing it was a DDD destination we decided to give it a try. Because we were driving all day we decided to take a cab from the Sheraton on 6th. It was about a 15 min ride which was $20 with tip. The decor is funky and interesting. We got there at 630 on a... More
