Last June, we opened our doors as Tinello in Pioneer Square. Embraced by the neighborhood and thriving in the constant growth of the area, we're happy to say we're still in business - with one recent change: our name.
Starting May 1st, Tinello will now be known as Radici. After being open for only a few months last year, we ran into a trademark dispute and, to avoid further complications, we have finally decided to rebrand.
Last month, thanks in part to your generosity, we successfully raised over $18,000 on Kickstarter to help us with this process, as well as to build out a full bar in the restaurant. As you can see, our rebranding efforts are in full swing, and the bar build out has begun!
Radici translates to “roots” in Italian. Owner, Rudy LaValle's own roots stem from the warm Calabrian soil of his native Italy. The new name reflects our dedication not only to this traditional Southern Italian style of cooking, but our Seattle roots as well, using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. The crew, the management and the ownership remain the same. We continue to evolve and grow with an expanded seasonal menu and - very soon - a fully stocked cocktail bar.
Our family invites you, your family, and friends to enjoy a taste of Italy in the heart of Pioneer Square. We hope to see you there.
