About Pasta Freska
Dinner at Pasta Freska Italian Restaurant is based on Chef Mike Horri's "Have it your way" philosophy! We truly are a unique and fun Seattle restaurant - Chef Mike comes to your table, asks questions, has a little fun and makes sure he delivers a great dining experience. Truly unique Italian comfort food. You won't go away hungry. Do you maybe just want to have one entree and with a salad, you can do that too.
Typically the way our dinner works is start with a salad and appetizer then we are ready to start the dinner, so you should expect to the dinner to last about an hour and a half. You should expect one dish of differents kinds of Pasta, Seafood and chicken.
We do accommodate larger parties as well.

Pasta Freska Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I first time and we will be going back and taking friends with us. What a remarkable dining experience. It reminds me of dining in Europe where you own the table for as long as needed. There is no rushing here, quite the opposite. Dinner will take 1 1/2 hours, so don't bother hurrying off. Food and service was wonderful, plenty of food, maybe too much. We were both stuffed when we left and they continue to bring out different dishes. No menu so you get what they serve [6 course dinner] and they leave the bill. Dinner for 2 with 3 glasses of wine each was $110+tip. A bargain in Seattle.
Love this place,it was my wife's birthday and Chef Mike prepared a special dish for her as she didn't want Chicken and he made crab stuffed Manacoti. Everything from the salad to desert was superb and wine was matched to our taste. Birthday dinner for two under $90 with wine you can't beat the price, quality and fun. Word of caution this is for the adventurous who want to take time and enjoy their dinnet
My family and I are regulars at Pasta Freska, and this time, we brought along a guest. All of us were impressed and fulfilled by the six courses we were served plus the delicious dessert. We shared two bottles of great red wine that the servers picked out for us. We left extremely satisfied as usual after a terrific meal at Pasta Freska!
This place is amazing ! So glad we were referred to Pasta Freska. This was our second visit and I am sure we will be back many more times. The food is amazing and the service appropriately attentive. The combination of the two truly makes for a relaxed dining experience.
This is our favorite Italian restaurant. We have been here for more than 5 times, and we were impressed every time. We tend to go back every two weeks to enjoy the evening with excellent food and Italian wine. It reminds us of dining in a nice and quiet restaurant in Italy. The quality of food is outstanding, while the amount of food is very generous. We love this restaurant.
this experience is so unique, since there is no dinner menu, just great food, hand crafted, personalized to your tastes. We reserved a table for 3 after girls happy hour, and when 1 of the husbands, who loves this restaurant, jumped in the car to join us, the staff didn't wince when he showed up 2 courses in; just caught him up with food & wine! I'm a repeat customer, because Chef/owner Mike Hori works not only at creating great food, but also at making your night meaningful.
Great experience for my family! Chef came out and talked to us about what we liked, didn't and then gave us the most savory dishes. Be prepared to relax and enjoy! This is not a quick meal and we absolutely loved it and have already recommended it to a friend working out in Seattle right now.
The experience, food, and service were AMAZING! I appreciated Michael's approach. He asks you if there was anything you cannot eat. Then the food starts rolling out...vino, perfectly dressed salad, freshly made eggplant parmigiana, manicotti packed with ricotta and spinach, spaghetti and meat sauce, garlic bread, frutti di mare, and a dessert trio. Best $50 I've ever spent on a meal. Can't rave enough about this place. Quaint place surrounded by roses outside, so warm and inviting. If you are ever in WA, eat here.
A fantastic and unique restaurant. There is no menu: you walk in and they start serving you. You're wondering what's next and when it will stop. We were served seven courses: salad and garlic bread, an eggplant Parmesan-style dish, a shellfish mix, lasagna, chicken Marsala, salmon and a white fish, a steak sample...and then dessert: spumoni, chocolate cake, and a crème brûlé. All this for about $30/person.
Mike is an amazing host to all of his customers. We live out of State and visit Seattle 4-5 times a year and always make Pasta Freska one of our stops with our friends who travel with us as well as friends we have in Seattle. This restaurant is a hidden gem! The food is always amazing and the plates never stop coming. No menu! He surprises his guests with a variety of small plates that make you excited for the next one. Mike just wants to know if there is anything you don't like. And the wine never stops flowing. We Definitely recommend this place...you will not be disappointed!
We love Pasta Freska! We took my mother-in-law there for her birthday and she FELL IN LOVE with it. The food is amazing and the owner makes you feel like you're eating at his house. They don't have a menu - they simply ask about your food allergies and then bring you 6 courses of the yummiest Italian food ever. I highly recommend this restaurant for a date night, Friday night out, or family dinner.
I love this place! I had first come here about 10 years ago and it's still delicious and lovely. The staff was attentive yet relaxed and friendly. The wine they picked out for us was OUTSTANDING. If you want a leisurely and interesting dinner experience definitely come here. I plan on coming back sooner than a decade now that I live closer!
When we walked in, we were greeted by the owner and head chef! We were seated immediately. The chef asked us if we were allergic to or didn't like any type of food (we both said no) and then the staff began bringing out meal after meal! I believe we had 6 courses total and a bottle of wine. The Thursday special can't be beat-$60 per couple for 6 courses. It was very authentic/homemade. The atmosphere was quiet and comfortable-I felt at home. You could dress casual or formal and you wouldn't feel out of place. Fantastic service and amazing food-we were both uncomfortably full after our meal! Just a warning, you will end up spending about an hour and a half here so don't come if you are on a time crunch!
