Flashing lights and animation

Blinded by the light.
What's with the Time Square-like sign?
Things getting classy.

Amante's web site refers to this as their downtown location. Be that way!

No love for the hill!
Never knew they were a soulless chain

looks like one of the casino signs on 15. so out of place and a total distraction to drivers + pedestrians. plus, have you eaten the food in this place. i have once, there was a group of obnoxious 20 something brats doing shots for dinner, the wait staff was totally overwhelmed while the managers were barking out a litany of demands. i was with a friend - we ordered pasta, each got our food at different intervals, tasted like spaghetti o's. yuck yuck yuck

Yeah, I was laughing when I stepped out monday morning and saw it. It's even better in person, when you can see the flashing lights and quick advertising transitions. I wish they'd focus more on improving their pizza (it's the worst I've ever had in seattle).

Yeah, this place is a disaster on the outside as well as the inside. Their puttanesca sauce is a travesty! They need to move to Issaquah, they'd do well there.

What is up with the mini jumbotron?! I walk by this place at least twice a day and now they have given me a reason to not eat there. It's a neighborhood, not a freakin sports arena.

15th is far.... said...

Wow, this really triggered discussion :). Granted the sign IS completely hideous, but, I love the greek salad (the one without lettuce) here. Yum!

Indeed. I almost drove my car into the building when I saw it. Ugh.
