Best Italian (expensive)2012 Finalist See 2012’s Winner »
617 Broadway E., Seattle, WA 98102
Altura means "on high," which is roughly the height of the pedestal on which local food lovers have put this Italian-accented shrine to seasonality from chef Nathan Lockwood. Many of the small plates here support the accolades, including a terrific tuna heart pasta and perfectly-grilled steak. But the restaurant presents a classic sum-of-its parts situation, in which what's most memorable is the exquisite service, the cozy room and the conversations which inevitably unfold over a multi-coursed dinner that takes hours to complete.
