i normally don't share reviews, however Calabria/Bothell has been a HUGE disappointment over the several times going there i'm compelled. Having dined there several times time I figured the waiter/and owner was having a bad day ... turns out they just have a terrible attitude. Not just during my visits, but reported from friends who have experienced the same thing. Repeat, this is not a one time occurrence. This last visit, the waiter actually insulted me in front of my group within moments of walking up to the table ... sure food is good, however not worth the 'TUDE' that comes along with it .. and frankly fro the pricing... yeah ... i'd say Italian cuisine can be located elsewhere very easily with FUN atmosphere and KIND service... if Calabria reads reviews, maybe they wanna take a look from the outside and get a clue ... you they are in the 'service' industry ... it's not my pleasure to have you serve me.. rather it's the other way around by default! I will NOT be going there again and will discourage anyone who wants to meet me there for dinner in the future.

This restaurant has great authentic Italian Food. A great wine selection too. The staff was very helpful with food suggestions and let me tell you it was DELICIOUS! The prices are reasonable as well so if you want some excellent Italian food...try this place out.

The food is amazing, authentic and reasonably priced. The staff are pleasant and always willing to go the extra mile.
Great spot for a romantic night out or a large group of friends.
The Strawberries Ala Maria is amazing along with the Bruschetta.
Definitely a must visit place in Kirkland.

I read most of the mixed reviews and decided to check it out myself last night. Calabria would rather qualify for a stuffy and dull place.Hence, we decided to sit outside on the patio hoping for good food. Simplest of dishes like a Penne

Authentic Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. Must try the manicotti and the bruscheta. Went here with my spouse to celebrate a promotion at work. It was well worth it!

I will be brief: do not eat at this place. You will have spent your hard earned cash on food which is very mediocre, and on service that virtually does not exist. I guess this place used to be very good, judging from some of the reviews

We went here for Valentine's day 2006. Of course the place was crowded as expected. However, 3 things stood out: (1) the food was average, very very average; I hate to say this, but it was practically cafeteria quality, served for $40

No complaints about the food, but the atmosphere was that of a cafeteria. Tables are so close together that you can hear the conversation at the next table. We went out for a romantic dinner, but it wasn't romantic at all. Ate our food

No wonder Calabria pumps all those coupons into weekly mailers. They changed their menu, raised prices $4/entree and you no longer get a salad included w/ entree.
But worse than that, the smoke from the bar wafts into the dining area.
