Il Corvo chef and owner Mike Easton's highly sought-after new Italian spot Il Nido seats 64 in the bright, airy dining room of the newly renovated Alki Homestead, which has been a long-standing West Seattle landmark since 1904. The log cabin that survived a 2009 fire now reeks of rustic charm and has been given fresh life housing the hottest new restaurant in town. The ricotta cavatieddi pomodoro is a must, a Roman-style pasta tossed in a simple no-fuss sauce of tomato, basil, and garlic topped with generous shreds of Parmesan. I'm also still drooling over the busiate ragú alla toscano, its thick hand-rolled tubes of pasta swimming in a hearty meat sauce made with sausage and prosciutto. KARA TIERNAN
