Redmond & Bellvue in Pacific Northwest & Alaska: Dining Posted January 6, 2005 Looking around some, I don't see more than a post for Firenze.The folks at Firenze are good: the service is good and serious, but mostly the pasta is right on. Seriously... as much as I love all kinds of food, I rarely order pasta in this part of the world if I'm not at Firenze. I order the bolognese off the menu but always ask them to use penne instead -- I should probably be asking for rigatoni, but it's great as penne. Great great great.I've actually taken a taxi from downtown Seattle (where I live) to Crossroads Mall to have some rigatoni al'Amatriciana (sp? probably) because they seem that good to me (a novice/newbie to Italian food admittedly).
