Two Stars for Cozy Corretto on Capitol Hill

Eater reads the reviews so you don't have to.


The Seattle Times reviewed Capitol Hill's Corretto, the "cozy Italian joint" from Travis Rosenthal. Though Providence Cicero says that every neighborhood should have such a spot, she awards it only two stars, saying there were many high and low points: "Impressive ravioli, but dismal soup. Commendable gnocchi, but dull lamb chops. Lovely lasagna, abysmal bistecca."

Cicero notes that the safest route is ordering pasta dishes, given that they're crafted by executive chef Laura Licona, previously of Osteria La Spiga. She also commends the "persistently cheerful and attentive" servers, who "seem genuinely to care about your good time." Cicero suggests you end your meal with a signature caffé corretto rather than the soggy tiramisu. The Liquid Biscotti goes down easy, and "qualifies as dessert and a nightcap all in one curvy little cordial glass."
