About Via Tribunali Capitol Hill
We opened our first pizzeria in 2004 in the burgeoning Capitol Hill neighborhood. For months before we opened curious onlookers poked their heads in the former auto body shop, and outlandish rumors spread. One person saw a team of masons reportedly flown in from Naples to build a gargantuan wood-fired oven, someone heard that the bricks also came from Naples rich with Vesuvian ash, a reporter ran a story about a taxi driver leading our owner down a dark Neaopolitan street to meet a talented Pizzaiolo who was then whisked to an airport….
As it turns out almost all of the tall tales are true – on opening night people lined up for the authentic Neaopolitan pizza and since then our ovens have only gotten busier. Via Tribunali has been called "more authentic than the pizzerias of Naples," and even though that is a flattering exaggeration it is fair to say that our pizzerias have grown out of an almost unnatural passion for the food & wine of Southern Italy.

Via Tribunali Capitol Hill Ratings and Reviews
This restaurant used to be very active and the food used to be great. Now the pizzas are just ok. The clam pizza had the clams in the shells on the pizza with no other accompaniments, the prosciutto pizza just had prosciutto and nothing else on it. Very plain. It's just not as good as it used to be.
Via Tribunali never stops to impress... the food continues to be of exceptional taste and freshness. Service is friendly and ambiance is energetic. Always recommend the starters like Burrata or Meat Balls and Arugula salad is fresh and dressing is simple yet well balanced. Pizza dough is simply divine (well baked and perfectly seasoned with the right amount of salt and fresh ingredients that are not over cooked or greasy).
Excellent, we will be back.
A great choice of pizza combinations. Good wine selection., friendly service, booths, not overly loud so you can actually carry on a conversation.
It’s Capital Hill so parking can be a challenge but there are lots on Broadway just a short walk away.
My wife asked for a vegan friendly pasta dish and the chef sent out a very special dish which she raved about.
See you there.
This has become a regular haunt where I take all of my out-of-town guests to eat. It's always been a memorable experience! Most notable was this pst week when I brought a family member who had some dietary challenges and this place accommodated her without making it awkward.
The wine list keeps getting better and better!
Loved it. I made a reservation for a group of 12 via OpenTable, and we got the big table in the private dining area in the back of the restaurant which did comfortably fit all of us (I believe it can fit up to 16 guests). A beautiful interior, cozy lighting and a moderate noise level. Food and service were excellent. They made our whole evening go very smoothly. Thank you, we'll be back!
We celebrated my birthday dinner here and we treated like gold! We were greeted with a smile at the door from a great hostess, Ben did an amazing job serving our every need and recommending great wine and pizza choices, and he even topped it off with a birthday dessert on the house! We'll be back anytime! Thanks for making my birthday dinner a tasty and wonderful experience!
I've been here on multiple occasions and it's always been great but this time was different. I made a reservation for 14 for my fiance's birthday. While the food was great as usual, the service was poor, this is highlighted by the face that we paid well over $100 in tips on a $500+ bill. After an initial wave of service, drink refills weren't provided, we received one pair of sheers for cutting the pizza, and the waitress was incredibly inpatient and rude. This was capped off by being asked to leave an hour and 45 minutes into our reservation because there was another reservation. As I mentioned before, I've been a patron of this restaurant on several occasions; for my brother in law's birthday, a bachelor party, and as casual diners - after this experience (primarily the attitude of the female server) I can't say I'll revisit.
Excellent food. Veal meatballs were great, cesar salad was excellent and I loved my pizza. Service was bad. He took our order, brought the drinks then disappeared. Also, pretty dark. Had to use my flashlight on my phone to see the menu. Great food. Just be prepared for bad service, then you should be fine.
Always the best pizza in town! You must understand, I don't eat pizza but once a year, as I have many dietary / medical restrictions.... but I will eat one pizza a year at your restaurant because it is far superior than any other place I've ever eaten pizza at. Thank you for such a treat!
I made a reservation for 9, for a same day reservation. It was perfect for our group. The service was slower than usual but was understandable given we were such a large last-minute party. The food is always great, house wine never disappoints - the beet carpaccio is hands down the best in Seattle.
Excellent food except it was too dark if you are not seated by the street. Next time I would like to be seated by the window. The biggest negative is that the pub style booths/benches are extremely uncomfortable. We will definitely return because the food is very good.
We wanted to grab some good food before a long evening out for my buddies bachelor party. We grabbed some drinks at Optimism Brewery before. We were a little late for our reservation but the hostess was more than kind and very accommodating once we arrived. If I had to find something to complain about, it would be the size of our booth, it was pretty snug for a party of six men, all over 5'10. With that said, the service was superb. We ordered several pizzas which arrived quickly. The food was great and we joyfully went on our ways will full bellies. I'd highly recommend Via Tribunali.
Food was quite good, appetizers and pizza. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Pizza crust amazing....thin but held the toppings. Had a nice table on a nice day "outside"...so good people watching as well. Service was good, though our waitress was not very attentive. I could have had a second glass of wine but she didn't ask and then it was too late.
Another really nice pre-performance dinner at Via Tribunali. Caught the happy hour, so drinks were a bit less. Only two knocks against it... the food takes a bit longer than expected (we had time, so it was ok), and there's always the "whoa, we spent that much for pizza?...) thing, but we did end up getting great apps and dessert, so probably on us...! Server was awesome and spot on with any recommendations and a bit of humor!
