Seattle may feel far from Italy, but when it comes to pasta, this city can hang, what with the likes of Il Corvo and its legendary short-list of fresh noodles, or Italian icon Spinasse with its famed tajarin, those egg yolk-colored noodles in a delicate butter-and-sage sauce. For all the top options, check out Eater Seattle's guide to essential pasta places.
There are unsung plates of pasta in this fair city, too, though, many of them flying under the radar in places you'd least expect: a German establishment serving traditional stuffed pastas alongside its brilliant brats; a food truck slinging some of Seattle's most satisfying spaghetti; the Vietnamese place with an classic combo of clams, wine, butter, Asian-inflected. Who knows? You may yet find a few pleasant surprises here.
