The History of Bizzarro
Bizzarro has been a Seattle favorite since it opened in 1986 by original owner, chef and visual artist David Nast. He converted the building which was originally an auto workshop into his dream restaurant on a shoestring budget with a lot of hardwork, ingenuity, artistic inspiration and love.
The eighties and early nineties saw line-ups down the street as people clamored for tables in this unique and quirky pasta house with ever changing inspired decor. David’s original waitress Kathleen who waited tables at Bizzarro for fifteen years became a local legend as she sang improvised operatic riffs to, for and about the customers and the food.
Bizzarro still holds true to its fun and non-pretentious heritage with most of the employees all involved in artistic endeavors and the décor is still as engaging. The restaurant itself has evolved into a high quality Italian restaurant using the finest of ingredients with almost everything being hand made in-house from the pasta to the breads and the decadent desserts. We have a team of inspired young chefs and fresh market specials rotate on the chalk boards daily and every Sunday night you can come in and enjoy our fabulous meatballs. Oh … and the wine list isn’t too bad either.
