Family friendly affordable pizza pies and salads served up in a sleek environ in the heart of Columbia City.
Try the Tiramisu – I have been here several times in the past. This is a perfect place to go for lunch, dinner or anytime; that is also easy on the wallet. I especially enjoy the salads served a top of their great pizza bread. The tiramisu is simply heaven with a serving size large enough to share, and their rotating flavors of gelatto is another added treat! We enjoyed two pizzas, a salad and dessert for under $50! That is a steal!
Best pizza in town – Tuttabella's Neopolitan-style pizza tastes just as good as the real thing in Italy. It's a great place to bring guests and make sure to try the tiramisu for dessert!
No longer what it was! – It used to be good, but then they open a second location and the service and consistency just deteriorated.I was just told they sold it to RUI and will now become a chain. I read the next one will be in woodenville. It is unfortunate, like everything else in Seattle it is growing too fast.
Delicious Pizza – I love Tutta Bella's pizza. It's thin crust just like I enjoyed in Italy and they use the freshest and best ingredients. I highly recommend the Columia City location but haven't had the best luck in Wallingford.
It's very family friendly and I always have a great time here. Good for groups.
Tutta Bella has a morning Cafe' - YEA! – I was walking by Tutta Bella early in the a.m. on my way to work and SUPRISE! They are open for espresso and pastries (sooo tasty) starting at 6:00 in the a.m. My barista was very friendly (and Italian to boot!) and made me my fav - a creamy, smooth latte in a porcelain cup. I munched on a ham and fontina croissant that was warm and delicious and watched my neighborhood wake up.
PS - If you have been to Italy, this will reawaken your fond memories of street cafe's/bars!
Soupy mess of an appetizer pizza – I have been there three times now. I like the atmoshere, however, each time I get a pizza, the outer crust is burnt while the center is undercooked. I believe that they are cooking them too fast. Not much for the dough you spend.
Vive Espresso! – Coffee is my life. I live it. I love it. In fact, i may be more coffee than human. Needless to say, I am always on the lookout for a good cup latte or shot of espresso. Talking with my friends in the coffee underworld that is Seattle, I heard about Tutta Bella's fantastic espresso. Initally i was a bit dubious, becuase most restaurants have pretty crappy coffee (to say the least...) but Tutta Bella blew me away! To start with, they have an amazing amazing espresso machine. its a sleek chromed out lever pulled beauty. With this type of machine all you can get is quality, even with a middling type of coffee bean. But with the high end Attibassi coffee bean that Tutta Bella ships in weekly from Bologna, Italy, the end product in fantabulous! and i truly mean it. Tutta Bella surpassed all of my expectations and is now my new spot to go for excellent espresso, and if im truly fiendish.... a regular cup of coffee. So, I implore you all, go to Tutta Bella if you want great, well made high end but cheap espresso or coffee.
Good Times and Great Food! – So... Ive been hearing from all of my friends about Tutta Bella for a long time, and I just now found the time to finally go. I went on a pretty busy Saturday night, but was not peturbed by the wait. The host's served me some free flatbread while waiting, and i was treated with the utmost courtesy. When i finally was seated, i found the service to be prompt, very friendly (but not overly friendly), qnd i just got a great vibe overall from everybody working there. When the food came, I was blown away! The salad was crisp, fresh and huge! And the pizza was cooked to perfection. After stuffing ourselves with salad and pizza, my wife and i found room for some dessert. We chose to go with the house made Tiramisu, and some amazing espresso.
Overall I found my experience at Tutta Bella to be one of the best experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. If you haven't been there, you need to go! Im kicking myself for not going sooner!
Pizza connoisseurs from Columbia City and beyond flock here for authentic Neapolitan-style pie in a comfy modern setting. – The Scene
The buzzing loft-like space is sleek and casual, with swooping light fixtures, deep-red walls and simple wooden tables. An open kitchen provides a view of the roaring wood-fired pizza oven, while a balcony level makes a nice perch. Order at the counter during lunch; table service at dinner is unceremonious, yet polite.
The pizza here is about as far from mass-market, mound-o'-mozzarella pie as it can get--it's authenticated by the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana. The stellar thin crust is firm yet elastic, with bubbles that are charred just right; toppings are done with restraint and simplicity, like super-thin Parma prosciutto or a pretty pile of spicy arugula. Delicate palates may want to forgo the house cheese, a sharp mixture of fontina, Asiago and aged provolone. It's all priced right, including enormous salads that are plenty for three and a tiramisu for two that's boozy-tasting and right-on.
Skip this wait in line-it's not worth it. – So I had to see what all the fuss was about. After waiting for 10 minutes, we were finally seated at a wooden table and chairs that was anything but comfortable. Maybe it wasn't that- maybe it was that I had to cup my hand around my ear to hear my friend talking to me, or that I had to practicly yell to have her hear me. When the food came I was dissapointed. Was this what everybody had been raving about? Dry and flavorless is my 2 cents. The salad was pretty good, but not something I would wait in line for. I'm all for mediocre food, as long there is atmosphoere to make up for it. Tutta Bella lacks in atmosphere and doesn't make up for it with food. You'll leave feeling dissapointed and a little anxious (after having to deal with the rocket ship levels of noise). Sure this might be "Neopolitan" but I'll take pizza that doesn't make me wait to be taken for. Give me comfortable seating and bearable accoustics over this place any day.
