During the Holiday season a couple of weeks ago, the Hubs and I went to Cascina Spinasse because we’ve been wanting to try it for a long time and we had a gift card from my In laws from 2 years ago. The restaurant has lots of good reviews and it was even featured in one of Food Network’s shows and The Cooking channel, where one the chefs was saying “it’s a must” if you visit Seattle. I was excited and looking forward to try their famous “Tajarin al Ragu o Burro e Salvia(egg pasta with ragu or sage and butter).
The place was cozy and intimate, we liked their food but it was too pricey from what we got. The quality of their pasta was superb (they make it fresh) but their famous Tajarin pasta sadly for us was a big disappointment! I know we are probably in the minority but the Hubs and I were pretty disappointed because for us it tasted like pasta and melted butter,so bland! I know it’s says pasta and butter(on the menu) but not even a hint of salt and the sage was too subtle. We wanted to ask the server if they forgot to “flavor” our dish! I guess that was it. My poor Hubs was “forced” to finish it because I wouldn’t touch it after. Good thing the rest of our food was YUM! We will probably not go back to Spinasse just because we think it’s too pricey though the pasta was great, it’s just not worth it for us.
