If you love Italian food, then your next trip to Seattle just might provide you with what you want. On Friday night we dropped into Cuoco, which is located in a refurbished area they're now calling South Lake Union.
The dish above is ravioli, something I rarely order. But it featured beef and cheese and bread-crumb coating, along with a bit of kale, which I've just recently developed a taste for. And, yow, it was divine. So were the roasted brussells sprouts, something else, until recently, I wouldn't have eaten with my cat's mouth. But Cuoco makes them taste like nut candy.
Yeah, three other dishes arrived. And a variety of appetizers. But my ravioli was the hit. It was the match of anything I ate the last time I was in Rome, including several dishes of that Roman specialty pasta cacio e pepe.
The passes over the Cascades are still a bit chancy. But when it feels safe, check Cuoco out. E un ristorante di cibo molto delizoso.
