Overlooking downtown, Machiavelli has been serving Capitol Hill for nearly 30 years.

Ristorante Machiavelli has been a Capitol Hill And Seattle staple since 1988 with a loyal and dedicated following.  A lot has changed in the neighborhood since then, but the Machiavelli mission has never wavered: warm, familiar faces, and delicious, consistent food at reasonable prices.

In almost three decades as a local favorite, Machiavelli has earned a reputation for bringing people together and making them feel like family. With the help of a devoted, long term staff, the restaurant has nurtured a clientele of loyal regular customers and newcomers alike.
