93A Pike St., Seattle, WA 98101
Il Bistro, the longtime resident of the surprisingly spacious grotto under the Pike Place stairs, positions itself as a romantic destination: The red sauce joint's staffers have seen their share of teary wedding proposal scenes at candlelit tables. The food sometimes threatens to interfere with the mood, since it's nearly impossible to feel amorous after downing mounds of rustic rigatoni bolognese, laden with veal, or a portion of lasagna so hefty that a burly server warned: "I can only finish it when I'm hungover." Still, the restaurant does right by classic dishes and makes good use of fresh fish and seafood from the market overhead.
