New York, ...Seattle? – Zagi's makes the best NY-style pizza in Seattle, bar none. Being originally from New Jersey, I have high standards for my pizza. All too often, my Pacific Northwest friends would claim that this pizzeria or that pizzeria had "authentic" NY-style pizza. Zagi's was actually the last place I was going to try in Seattle - ever. There's only so much heartache a woman can take.
Zagi's is New York pizza. Zagi's pizza is exactly as I remember it from back home, only slightly less greasy and slightly more mild. The staff is friendly and helpful, and it's a place that's so wonderfully reminiscent of being back in a real pizza parlor-- I just don't have enough good words for how delicious this pizza is.
Those true Seattlites looking for their standard sun dried tomato artichoke-and-goat-cheese pesto mushy slices are going to be disappointed. That food has its place, but not in a NY-style pizza parlor. Zagi's is fantastic, it's authentic, and I'm hungry now.
Hooray for Zagi's! – I love Zagi's. My sig. other go there ALL the time and cannot get enough. Order the Tang, its incredible. Its an olive oil based pizza with garlic, assagio, spinach, artichokes, lemon and black pepper. It beats any pizza i have ever had. Their service is great. YEAH FOR ZAGI'S!
This pizza is so good! – My boyfriend and I just discovered Zagi's thanks to a tip from a friend. It is so good, in that thin crust, huge slice of pizza kind of way. The people behind the counter were friendly, too, which is always a plus. We moved to the neighborhood last weekend and picked up a couple of Zagi's pies for our friends who helped us move, and everyone agreed it was the best pizza ever. You can also get pizza by the slice, if you need to get in and out quickly. And they have Dr. Pepper in a bottle! When was the last time you saw that?
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Hand-tossed, stone-fired pizzas served up alongside pasta and hot sandwiches.
Best pizza ever! – Best pizza in Seattle by far. It was a little slow on delivery. But well worth the wait. Friendly service.
A perfect 10 – Being from Seattle and travelling to NY, all in between, I have never found this thin crust ZA. Not only is the staff friendly and explains in depth the ways to create each pie, the owners actually work and deliver! Almost everything is organic, some certified, and community oriented. The bread is from Larsen's bakery, the meats from the Cascioppo Bros, and the marinara a trade secret! The calzone is almost too big for the plate, the pizza definently is, and the dressings for the salads are incredible. Everything is HOMEMADE, can you really get that anywhere else? I would pay more for this food than they charge, please check it out for yourself!
Dis is da place! – Sweet Zagi's, thank you. I love living in Seattle, but one thing I have missed about the east coast (NJ & NY) has been the pizza. While there are no replacement's for John's or DeLorenzo's (Hudson Street), Zagi's has become the west coast version of NY's Two Boots. And how thankful I am for this!!! The crust is thin with the perfect sprinkling of corn meal, the sauce is perfect- with a hint of spiciness. I learned from the authentic Italian owned cafe next door that they would only rent the current space where Zagi's stand to someone who would make them proud- i.e. good Italian food. They are very happy with their tenants! You really must try this place. Get a pie to go and then go sit on the beach at nearby Golden Gardens- can't get more decadent than that.
a rare gem – Good pizza used to be hard to find in Seattle, but with the addition of Zagi's in Ballard this is no longer true. The pizza served up at this hip, friendly joint is athentic, soulful and mouthwatering. The other dishes (pasta, soup, salads, sandwiches) are also awesome. It is the kind of food you crave on a weekly basis. I've never eaten anything I didn't like here. The staff is friendly and it is cool to watch them toss pies and make food in their open kitchen. Can't recommend it enough!!
Kick-ass Pie – There may be a lot of pizza joints in the Seattle area but I haven't found one more excellent as this. This pizza pie is delicious, totaly hits the spot every time I go in and the staff is cool too. Mondo size slices that bring home the flavor of the gods. The egg plant parmesian is super good too. Grub on!
Soggy crust – Not really impressed. Stopped here for a quick slice, and although their slices are huge, the crust was thin and soggy, almost undercooked. Their fresh pizzas straight out of the oven may be better, but I'm not going to find out.
