eattle Weekly- “Burien’s Italian restaurant has location and flavor tucked into its shirt pocket.”

Seattle Magazine- “Osteria da Primo is a true neighborhood fave for fine wines and authentic Italian cuisine.”

Osteria da Primo was recently named one of Seattle’s Top 200 restaurants by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine.

Check out what Seattle Metropolitan’s Dining Out section had to say about us! We were the first “Neighborhood Hot Spot” featured in their inaugural issue…

“You have to want to find Osteria da Primo, tucked into and anonymous wall behind an unreadable sign it shares with Ramlyn Engraving & Sign Co. (Look for the red oval.) Clearly, lots of folks around Burien want to find it. Clearly, Burien knows Italian. Carlo Guida gives scrupulous care and minimal fuss to a menu translated as intact as the chilled desserts he flies in from Milan. He’s Calabrese, and the south shows in arancini di riso (fried, mozzarella stuffed rice balls), trofi alla puttanesca, and piquant seafood linguine diavolati (the Devil likes frutti di mare with his peppers). Plus sinfully juicy chicken cottolette and veal saltimbocca and a spinach and white beans contorno that could stand alone. Add a Sicilian pizza master who knows a wood-fired crust is a work of art, never to be crisped.

Maybe it’s the subliminal effect of the wine-red walls, but every Southern vintage seems to taste better here.”

Best of City Search- Italian Beef, I think that means our steaks, not our beefcake Carlo, and vegetarian, seems like a contradiction but when a vegetarian and carnivore own the same restaurant it make perfect sense.

AOL’s City’s Best- Seattle’s best fine dining restaurant in 2008, best Italian 2010.
