I have just visited Beato for the 12th time in two years, and I have to say, each time has been better than the last! I always refer my friends and visitors from out of town to this restaurant, and once again I am proven right in doing so. The wine list, for those who love boutique northwest wines as well as amazing Italian wines, is out of this world. All you have to do is consult Ryan and and the general manager Lola for an amazing sipping experience. Our server Natalie was incredibly professional, friendly and fun. When asked for a recommendation on dinner, she led us down the most amazing culinary path: Duck egg w/guanciale and asparagus for an appetizer, fettucine with oxtail ragu and crab agnoletti for pasta (OH MY GOD!!), salmon with fava beans for an entree, and we splurged for the dessert of ricotta fritti. Wow! As always, an amazing gastronomical experience! On a side note, I was reading some of the earlier reviews from a couple of months ago, and I have a comment regarding one in particular...I visited Beato mid-summer with family, and was treated to a horrifying display of customer petulance...I am pretty sure it was the same group of eight that turned into seven, and was charged a no show fee. I overheard this whole exchange and need to debunk the myth that Beato treated this group unfairly and unprofesionaly. First, anyone who knows the restaurant industry knows the difficulty of setting up a small space, therefore no show fees exist. These seven early twenty somethings were so rude, obviously felt entitled to the Paris Hilton star treatment, didnt get their way, and actually yelled at the staff using the ""F"" word across the restaurant in front of all the customers. CLASSY! They insulted the GM, and promised not to tip the waitress (who they admitted was great) as a revenge to the GM, who they thought had mistreated them. CLASSY! I saw this go down and all I have to say is...are you kidding me twenty somethings? Get a life!
