Barolo Loco

What happens when you add a Brit, 2 Washingtonian's, and Seattle's spring time sunshine together? 

A fabulous rendezvous in Downtown.

Now, combine that with 3 plates of fried calamari, Happy Hour Cocktails and a slight obsession with material goods, and you will get one hell of an evening. At least, that's what happened this weekend when I met up with Abs and KT at Barolo in downtown Seattle.

It's rare to find good Happy Hour on the weekends. When I walked into the chic Ristorante on Saturday night, Happy Hour was in full swing and the tables were packed. 

First thing we did, of course, was check out the cocktails. 
KT and I ordered the Italian Lemondrop. It was deliciously refreshing! 
Abs got the Bellini Tini- a scrumptious peach martini that hit the spot. Then she ordered the gorgeous X-rated martini. That's at the top of my list to try next time!

We ordered plenty of calamari (one of my favorite small plates), and enough food to walk away completely satisfied. 

Eggplant Parmiggiana

Fried Calamari

Tuna Tartare with Ginger & Honey Melange

Ahi TUna Carpaccio with Horseradish Crema

Ravioli with Spicy Ricotta & Spinach

By the time we drained our drinks, our stomach's were grinning with satisfaction.
If you're ever shopping downtown and fancy some Italian to refuel, I'd highly recommend Barolo.
