Editorial Review. Authentic Neapolitan thin-crust pizza with house-made mozzarella draws families and couples to this U-Village pizzeria.
Adorable. I love this place. The food is excellent and extremely flavorful. Wonderful salads. Even more wonderful pizza. Affordable. The wait-staff is outstanding/friendly/prompt. One of the reviewers below complained about parking; parking is not an issue... there is ample free parking below the restaurant in their parking garage (most people probably don't see it). The restaurant is sometimes loud on Fri/Sat night because it's full of patrons with kids. But on a weeknight or later in the evening, I don't think it can be beat. I've taken several clients to this restaurant.
Excellent Italian style pizza.
Crisp thin-crust pizza with a tasty tomato sauce and a choice of a variety of preselected toppings.
Each pizza can be personalized by asking for removal of ingredients from one of the preset combos.
One pizza easily serves two adults. In our party of 4 we shared two pizzas.
The salads (2 medium were perfect for us) are good, yet not exceptional. The wonderfully garlicky flat-bread went very well with the salads.
Both pizzas arrived promptly, one after the other. One of the two, a "margherita", was, according to the Chef, not "to their standard" when it was brought to our table (we would never have known that from the looks of the pie or from the great taste of it, but we were told "the mozzarella was not evenly distributed on each slice"!!!. Our waiter apologized and informed us that a second pizza was already in the oven for us to enjoy or take home. The second one was as good as the first one, but most of it ended up being boxed to take home as we were satisfied with our first one.
The staff was friendly and efficient (the chef visited our table to check in person on our satisfaction and greeted us on the way out).
A very family friendly place (tables are roomy and can accommodate large parties), somewhat on the noisy side (but not as much as other places) but a heaven of peace compared to the din of the Christmas shopping hordes of University Village (across the street).
Conclusion: Delicious pizza, pleasant place and pleasant staff and an excellent value for money.
Not "authentic Neapolitan" pizza, no parking, loud ambiance. Once I read the summary (written by Citysearch or the restaurant, I don't know which), I had to review. I lived in Naples for almost 4 years ? this is NOT "authentic Neapolitan" pizza as described. It is pizza, but just because you make it thin-crust with runny sauce and throw on some mozzarrella doesn't make it Neapolitan. So they've taken the idea and have "Americanized" it (like including pepperoni which even a Camorra wouldn't be caught dead putting on his pizza). That said, I haven't found it worth a second visit yet and I live nearby. Zeeks up the street on 65th makes much better pizza. I did find their breadsticks tasty. But if you want TRUE authentic Neapolitan pizza in Seattle, or simply the best pizza in town, visit Tutta Bella in Wallingford or south Seattle. Well worth any drive.
