Best Cioppino?

We will be visiting Seattle from (very landlocked!) Idaho this week, and would love a great bowl of cioppino.

Any recommendations? We'll be staying in the Seattle Center area, but will certainly drive for a really good bowl of cioppino! We'd a prefer casual dining atmosphere.

By the way, the very best cioppino we've ever had was at Phil's Fish Market in Moss Landing, Ca. If you're in the area, don't miss it!

(and I DID try a search, but the posts were quite old)

Thanks in advance for any tips!

  1. I lived in Santa Cruz for a while and would make the drive down to Phil's to get some of that great cioppino and some of Phil's other great items regularly. I have unfortunately not found a cioppino that is as good. I think that someone is going to chime in that the cioppino at Jack's Fish Spot in Pike Place Market is a good choice but I am going to have to disagree with that in advance. Jack's serves a decent cioppino for cheap and that has its merits but it is nothing like Phil's. If I recall, and it has been a while, I think I had a very good cioppino at Etta's. Let us know if you find something good!

    1. TVQ, Il Terrazo Carmine makes a rich, traditional Cioppino. I strongly suggest you also experience their venison ravioli for a true Chowhound experience.
