Best service ever – THEY ARE OPEN MONDAYS! Citysearch says they are always closed Mondays which is false. Great pizza, great service, go on Mondays. The server has a rockin' ass, and he is full of charm too. I want to have his babies.
WORST SERVICE EVER – This place has the rudest staff I have ever met. I was told to come here because the staff knows sign language. ABSOLUTELY NO ONE in the place knew how to sign. If you speak spanish you have a better chance of being able to order. Their thick accents make it hard to understand anything. The waitress told me she was "busy" and proceeded to walk away from me. COME ON NOW. There are 12 tables in that cramped area and at least 3 waiters/waitresses. People were packed together next to people they weren't eating with. I wanted to order take out. SO I sat there for about 10 minutes without one person asking us if we were ready to order. After that, I had had enough so we left. I called and asked to talk to the manager and low and behold, the waitress that was rude to me earlier WAS IN FACT the manager. If your own MANAGER has no PR skills, then I suggest its time for new management. This honestly was the worst place I have ever been to. I suggest pizza hut next time.
Homey pastas and thin-crust pizzas with budget-friendly price tags. – The Scene
Ikea-type furnishings give a polished kiss to this quaint pizzeria, filled nightly with families from the neighborhood. Servers with thick accents are amiable and playful. Unfortunately, transportation back to Italy isn't easy: The bright lighting and lack of background music on some nights can drain the intimacy.
Five pastas and 10 sauces are available--mix-n-match to personal tastes. The Pomodoro sauce paired with angel hair pasta is simple but divine, and it doesn't come much better than a heaping bowl of penne pasta tossed in creamy tomato sauce. In the mood for greens? Dinner salads arrive alongside entrees for just a couple of dollars more. Pizzas are thin-crusted--crispy yet soft in all the right places. Watch for winning nightly specials like eggplant Parmesan.
Best pizza in Seattle – Although there are no TRUE East-coast style pizzerias out here, this one is the top of the stack. Their pizzas are great. Crust is thin, just crisp enough, toppings are generous and fresh, and its pretty inexpensive. Highly recommended.
Best Pizza... worth the trek – Hands down, best pizza in Seattle... or Portland, or Vancouver. It's really the best. Pasta's pretty good -- except for seafood specials, which can be great. Ambiance is bustling, harried, and not especially quaint. But it's somehow more fun that way. And the painting of Sophia Loren makes up for all decorative trespasses.
best pizza in seattle, and much cheaper... – I live for pizza, and this pizza is no joke! The sause is just spicy enough and the pepporoni is top notch and cripsy. The cheese doesn't get to greesy and the thin crust is just thick enough on the ends to really grab hold and stuff it in your mouth! The only suggestion I would have would be to order extra basil since the regular order is never enough. I'm always inpressed and love to grab a large pie and head next door to the Beverage Place for a Mariners game on the big screen. Not only is this pizza much better than any I've had in Seattle, a large pie is about $6.00 cheaper than Pagliacci's.
Best in the West – My grandkids favorite Italian restaurant, mine too, is the Abbondanza Pizzeria in West Seattle. Their great tasting, best in the west, New York style pizzas are to die for. The pasta dishes are superb, the salads are very fresh and tasty. You will not be disappointed with Seattles best sit down pizza parlor.
WOW! – The pasta here is so faulous! I was amazed. My boyfriend and I just moved to West Seattle and we always saw this little place packed on the weekends and we finally decided to give them a try and I am so glad we did. The pasta choices were out of this world. Try the Carbonerra! It's like dying and going to heaven! The service rocks as well. The only thing we were disappointed with was the decor. It's such a cold setting. The lighting is too bright and garrish. They should really soften things up at bit by placing tablecloths on the tables and maybe adding some soft light via candles. Other than that this place is perfect. In fact I may go there this evening!
Great Pizza! – I have been wanting to go to Abbondonza for sometime and finally got the opportunity this past weekend and boy was I glad I went! The pizza is awesome! My husband is from New York and says this is New York style pizza! The ambiance is nice, very family friendly. I can't wait to go back!
Yes, I'm a New Yorker... – ... and that means I find most of the pizza in town, well, confusing. At the least. Pineapple does NOT belong on pizza. Hunt's tomato sauce is not pizza sauce. Domino's is NOT pizza.
But the margherita at Abbondanza... now THAT'S pizza! The sauce, the cheese, the crust... all are authentic. Just leave a bite in your mouth and let your taste buds pick out the spices that are missing in most pizzas in town. Sure, you can put odd stuff on if you want, but if you want the real thing, this is it.
