Yes, It's true. Seattle is home to pizza makers that have been approved by the Italian pizza authority. But there are plenty of pizza joints in this city that prove you don't need a special designation to make a mean pizza pie. Here are just a tasty few.
They like to remind you that the "g' is silent. Silent or not, this place has been serving up pizza non-stop, once slice at a time to Seattleites for more than 30 years. They must be doing something right.
This is a sure bet when you're in Capitol Hill and looking to grab a quick slice between activities. The service is fast and friendly, the music keeps the joint buzzing and the pizza, although pretty basic, always hits the spot.
They aren't kidding...these are some serious pies. Pizzas that come topped with yukon gold potatoes or penn cove clams are just a couple of tasty pies that get served out of the wood fired ovens in this cozy downtown pizza joint. You'll find the makings for a classic pie here as well. Grab a mini pie at Happy Hour for just 6 bucks.
You gotta love a pizza that comes to your table hot from a wood-fired oven. They have the classics from the quattro formagio to the margherita - and everything in between. A pizza pie on your table means Italy can't be too far away.
You know you're in for the real thing when the executive chef goes off to Naples for a two-week training program on all things pizza. He came back with official nod from the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana and you can experience his pizza magic at all of theTutta Bella's locales.
People line up before the doors open for business...and for three good reasons: 1. they don't take reservations, 2. the tables in this cozy restaurant are limited and, most importantly, 3. the pizza that's served up is crazy good.
Whole pies and fat slices...that pretty much sums it up. A welcomed addition to late night noshing in Ballard. Pizza the way it was meant to be.
Pasta, wood-fired pizza and salads are the name of the game at this Ethan Stowell venture. The Rome inspired menu is...inspiring.
This joint hops. Step in and order a big slice to go, or slide into one of the booths and take in the scene. A fully stocked bar adds to the buzz.
This place is a real charmer. Pizza and other Italian comfort fare like the fried risotto balls & mozzarella makes this a perfect place to settle in over a glass of Chianti (or two).
The meat slicer in this joint is like the Rolls Royce of meat slicers. And you'll be eating in style when you order some nicely sliced salumi from the 16 different styles of meat that grace Bar Cotto's kitchen. Get 5 varieties for 25 bucks and make a night out of it (the torta fritta pairs quite nicely). Stop in during Happy Hour and wind down with a glass of Lambrusco. It's addictive!
