Seattle's Best Cheese Bread – When I need my cheese bread fix, this is the place to go. For less than $5, you can get an entire pizza box worth of cheese bread -- here it is the crusty french bread variety, smothered in butter with just a small hint of garlic and Chicago-style portions of fresh mozarella mixed with another white cheese or two. Decidedly heavenly. The gourmet pizza by the slice and NW micro-brew beer is good here, too, but you had me at the cheese bread, Belltown Pizza!
Good pizza place – I always get great service when I stop. Pizzas are very good. Music can be too loud to the point that you are shouting at the wait staff and your friends.
Ok Pizza, Nice outdoor space – The three stars are becuase it's exactly that...average. It's not bad, the service wasn't bad, nothing really was bad. But it wasn't knock my socks off amazing either. It's probably a great place to hang out with friends and have some decent pizza. A little expensive, but what isn't in downtown?
There are better places to spend your money – THE SERVICE
I called in an order for pick up early on a friday night (5:45). I ordered a small green salad, spagetti and meatballs and a medium pizza. I ordered the spagetti with marinara and meatballs after the person taking my order made it clear that they didn't know what bolegnaise was and then said "I think so" after I asked if they had a meat sause available for the spagetti. I was amazed when I was told that my order would be ready in 12-15 min. I told him I'd be there. I arrived 15 min later to pick up my order. It wasn't ready. I paid and tipped them in the hopes that they might make up for the slow start. I wound up waiting for 20 minutes for my order. My server said thanks for your patience as he handed me my order. He failed to give me any napkins, cheese, peppers, or utencils. Basically I tipped him for placing two boxes in the bag and handing it to me along with my pizza.
The salad was good.
The Spagetti was bad. Marinara was like red water with a few chunks in it. The meatballs were gross.
The Pizza was better than a frozen pizza but not as good as anything else in the neigorborhood.
I won't go back except to drink at the bar.
Best hang out bar in btown.... Read the menu! – Read the menu!
The place never closes before 2, I am a regular I know. The kitchen closes at midnight however the cooks stock up on pizzas before leaving. Slices are served until they run out usually this happens before 2am. After 12 it is mainly a bar and YES you can get a drink. Belltown pizza is one of the GREATEST things Seattle has to offer right now especially in Belltown, fantastic crew, food, and place! Not to mention the awesome music which ranges from indie rock to classic 80's all with a side of interaction from the rockin' out employees...
Don't trust the "hours" – I've lived in Belltown for over three years, and all I can say is, the pizza is decent, but don't trust the "hours". The place practically closes at midnight, although they advertise it as open until 2 am. I've just been there around 1 am, with the bartender noting, "you know, we don't serve after midnight."
Tombstone Pizza Copied – I think the kitchen just reheats Tombstone Pizzas in the back. The crust is doughy, and the sauce tastes like cheaped jarred sauce. As for the toppings, I think the cheese is a low-moisture, low-fat brand and everything else is just plain yuck. Wish the pizza was better, because everything else with the place is pretty nice.
Not that great – The pizza is satisfying, I just do not find it very distinctive. Service seemed a bit slow and could have been friendlier.
Belltown Pizza hits the mark – Hands down the best pizza in the Belltown neighborhood. I would venture to say it's even better than Zeek's Pizza but it is a little more expensive. I get takeout from there pretty often since I live down the street but eating there is always pleasant. The booths are a bit uncomfortable, not a cushion to be found, but after all, it is a pizzeria. Tuesday night diners can take advantage of the special: one large pizza with a bucket of beers for $20.
