Cucina! Cucina! Italian Cafe is a chain and although I have not been to the one in Tacoma Mall or the one in Issaquah, I have dined at the Redmond Towne Center location many times.
They bill themselves as family friendly and encourage dining in the family style - cheerfully bringing you extra place settings for sharing. Service is excellent and the wait staff polite and helpful. They will also "customize' dishes for you. I've had them serve a Fettucinni Alfredo for a picky child with the sauce on the side and the noodles tossed in a butter sauce.
The menu is carefully chosen with dishes that will probably cover the tastes of any party. It carries the old standards such as Fettucinni Alfredo, Pepperoni, Sausage & Mushroom pizza, but also cater to more sophisticated tastes with such dishes as a Wild Mushroom Tetrazzini and a Pesto, Goat cheese & Artichoke pizza.
For standard American fare with an Italian flavor, they serve Steak with pasta and Baby back ribs with Mediterranean vegetables.
The sandwich, soup and salad sections also feature the old favorites as well as dishes with a more adventorous flavort. A chicken sandwich with tzatziki sauce and feta on bruschetta for example.
The appetizer of Flatbread served with roasted garlic & Cambozola is one of my favorites, as is the Gelato Ice Cream Pie on the desert menu.
The Redmond location serves Guinness on tap and the wine list contains a good selection of wines, arranged in order of flavor intensity - a fine way to assist a diner unfamiliar with the labels.
