Seattle >Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria Stone Way
Great Pizza. This one is a personal choice. I personally love the pizza here while many of my friends hate it. Our waitress was great and offered suggestions for which pizza to try. My favorite is the Tutta Bella pizza. This is a great place to bring the family.
Delicious Pizza, Great Atmosphere.
I've been to Tutta Bella about a dozen times, and each time it is consistently delicous. The owner is super cool and really involved in the community- he even met with Obama on behalf of small businesses. Not only do they have such a great business model, but their restaurants are great. I've been to the Westlake. Wallingford and Columbia City locations, and I have to say Columbia City is my favorite (I think it's the origional). Last time, we had this AMAZING new pizza they were trying out- it had pancetta, wild mushrooms and cheese. Add some red pepper flakes and we were in heaven! Keep that on the menu!
I've compared Tutta Bella to many other pizza places and it is certainly among the best. Service is great whether you have a large group or on a date. Would absolutely recommend it to those who enjoy their style of pizza. Don't foget the gelato- its amazing!!!
The waitress was acting as she really did not want to take anymore guests for the rest of the night; we were not able to get any service for 5 minutes while we were sitting at the bar looking around for some help...
I REALLY felt like they were doing us a favour by taking $30 for two mediocre pizzas; it made me question everithing. I used to like this place but maybe a homesick Italian like me will be always drawn to a wood burning oven no matter what, even if the pizza is not actually that good... I think I was right. So much for that Neapolitan gimmick.
Tutta Bella - Issaquah.
I am rarely so dissapointed in a restaurant that I feel compelled to write a review, but Tutta Bella in Issaquah stands out as one of the worst pizza places I have EVER dined at!
This so called neopolitan pizza was a sopping wet, under-cooked mess covered with a few splotches of tomato puree a couple of dots of something like cheese and a few tasteless sausages and mushrooms. It was entitled the 'Tutta Bella'. Evidently one of their signature creations.
I am an experienced home pizza cook and a former Chicagoan who loves and appreciates a wide variety of pizza styles. Freschetta makes a better product than this restaurant!
Enter at your own risk, or better yet, opt for Serious Pie or another place where the chefs have received some proper training...
Are you kidding?.
I'm not sure what I am more disappointed in ... the wet soggy pizza or the reviewers who are dishing out 5 star reviews for this pizza.
We visited Issaquah's new Tutta Bella restaurant. We ordered a salad and a pizza. What did we get? A great salad and a wet pizza. Correct me if I am wrong but Neapolitan pizza is NOT served with the characteristics of a half soaked bar rag. This pie was SWIMMING with liquid in the center. The combination of mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, and San Marzano tomatoes are traditionally a great combination ... however in Tutta's pie shop the flavors are not to be found. I am quite familiar with the "Neapolitan-style" pizza. This pizza's crust was under cooked to an obnoxious limp disaster. This was an absolute fraud. The sad idea is Tutta's passes off their pizza as Neapolitan but in reality...it's just another American rip-off in name only. I love the idea of a wood-fire oven but if the cooks can't control ingredients and heat Tutta's should consider using an electric oven. Even worse? People who are eating this stuff and thinking it's "wonderful" are fooling themselves. Clearly these people are confused between quality and cr-p which is being pawned off as "authentic. But then again, here in America most garbage Is considered quality. As long as business owners print a high price on the menu next to the slop they serve and fancy up the place with some high end lighting idiots will consider it "good as gold" because someone else told them what to believe. This pizza was poor at best.
Great place!. The food is delicious. Order any pizza with the Napoli salad and make sure you save room for the tiramisu...some of the best I've ever had. This is a great place to bring a group of friends. The portions are generous, the price is reasonable, and the atmosphere is fun. The pizzas are very authentic so even the harshest foodies will enjoy themselves!
My kid's favorite.
My kids love this place which makes dinner REALLLLY easy when mom isn't around.
Fast service and casual. Not that anyone cares when it comes to pizza, but it's nice that it's not to heavy. Great flavors....Dad's best friend.
Not bella, just OK. The formula here is simple buckets of cheap wine, hoards of SUV drivers full of Yuppies and their kids from who knows where, and lots of hype about authentic Italian Pizza. Expect a hassle for parking, a line for the cafateria style seating an OK pizza, and a cheap tab. The Pizza is pretty much a cracker with the toppings applied -- really an appetizer or a light dinner.
So many kids!!!. Sort of a drag to wait so long while the noise is through the rafters. The menu is simple and easy to navigate through, which is probably why it's good for kids. The service is fine...okay, pretty good actually, but you can barely hear what your friend/date/accompanying party members are saying over all of the kids and the chairs moving in and out, and parents telling the kids to be quite. I am single and love dining out, so I'm biased in that way. If I had kids I'd come here - the house wine is pretty good, the tiramisu is excellent, and the pizza is pretty darn good, despite what some of the other reviews are saying (although, sometimes a little soggy in the middle). I can usually eat a whole pizza myself, so if you're with someone and she'll only want one pizza, get a salad.
Excellent service, lack-luster pizza for the price.
I ordered the basic Margahretta pizza expecting our taste buds to explode. The pizza was luke warm, the "buffalo" mozzarella cheese tasted like it had been in the fridge for a few days, and I was disappointed with the crust. The crust tasted like it had been previously frozen. It felt like the restaurant was cutting corners with the quality of ingredients. The pie was skimpy on cheese and basil too. Aside from the cheese, The frozen Italian pizza from Trader Joe's is just about as good as Tutta Bella. Tutta Bella's sauce is much better than anything frozen, but at $10 a pie, the overall pizza is not worth it, and I think Trader Joe's at $5 a pie is a pretty close second to Tutta Bella.
I agree with the other reviewers that the service was excellent. Prompt, friendly, informative. No complaints. Also, this is a very family friendly place. It was packed with young kids and watchful parents dining on simple, Ikea wooden tables. I would not take a date to this place, but I would recommend it to families with kids. The kid's pizza, at $8 (it's the same size as the other pizzas) is probably the best deal and the best tasting pizza on the menu.
