Tucked away under Pike Place Market, Il Bistro is a subterranean trattoria serving up Italian favorites in a quaint space with white tablecloths, a wood-paneled, marble bar, and an (extremely) sizeable selection of beverages. The menu features familiar, classic dishes like calamari, bruschetta, Bolognese, lasagna, and whole-roasted fish. The liquor list is chock-full of the standard spirits (heavy on the scotch and whiskey), plus amaro and aperitifs, cognac and armagnac, grappa, and fortified wines. The wine list is an entity in itself, with nearly 15 pages of both Italian and American wines, covering a wide variety of winemaking regions in each country. Trust us, you will not leave thirsty.
