In this week’s episode of Dining on a Dime, host Lucas Peterson continues his jaunt through greater Seattle with a stop for lunch at Il Corvo in Pioneer Square in the city's downtown area. Pioneer Square is where the original founders of Seattle settled in the 1850s and was once the heart of a booming metropolis. Il Corvo is different than most restaurants in that it’s only open for lunch, and only on weekdays — it’s closed all other times.
That makes the crowds clamor for its rotating menu of pastas even more. The pasta dishes are of good quality and they’re inexpensive — pretty much everything is under $10. Other items like prosciutto, pickles, and homemade focaccia help round out the menu. Peterson samples (nearly) everything they have to offer, wading through the long line of people to see what one of Seattle’s favorite lunch spots is all about.
