Italian restaurants abound in Seattle.
Here at historic 1 Yesler Way in Pioneer Square is al Boccalino,
the rough translation of which means ‘the mouth,’ or ‘the nozzle.’
The chef-owner, Luigi DeNunzio is said to be exuberant and talented.
The restaurant is cozy and unpretentious,
with delicious Italian food.

The building is at the bottom of Yesler Way,
at number ’1.’
Constructed in 1911,
the triangular red brick building was The Bedford Hotel,
and it remained so until the 1940s.
In the intervening years,
it was a seaman’s or traveler’s hotel until 1967
when it was remodeled inside for use as offices.

Luigi opened his Italian restaurant
(one of four he owns, all in historic Pioneer Square)
here in 1989 until present.

this was shot in the height of summer,
but I loved the warmth of the bricks
and the hint of lights inside.
