Pizzeria
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.

Great wine offerings and suggestions from the server. Outstanding pizza flavor combinations as well. The seats are terribly uncomfortable though, much to everyone in our party's dismay. Not very accommodating for bodies. Would greatly have preferred a booth.

Via Tribunali is delicious! I went with friends for a birthday celebration. We split a bottle of wine and some pizzas. Everything was super good!! We left the restaurant very full and very happy. They even treated our birthday girl to some tiramisu on the house :)
I’ll be back to Via Tribunali!

Went for my son's 18th birthday. I indicated the special occasion in my reservation. They did not acknowledge it in any way. The pizza was great. Service slow. Ceasar salad underdressed.

This place is REALLY good. If you like Napolitan style pizza then this is your place. It is very authentic and done the Italian way. Everything in addition seems so fresh and that is perhaps why this place is so good. The building has alot of character. Really an old space that has been converted but maintains all of the originial character. There are 4 other spots so this pizza place is popular. When we got there they were moderately full but by the time we left people were waiting by the door for a table.

Okay, okay, so I ate *way* too much pizza. What can I say... It was excellent.
We had a table near the window of this narrow and deep restaurant, where it was much darker early evening when we were there. Very thin crust pizza (and calzone) selections are extensive, and more formal dishes are also available. The pizzas are larger than you might think for the price; two shared with three people would be perfect.
The wine list was surprisingly extensive and reasonable, although very high end wines are available if you want to spend the money. We discovered a Morellino di Scansano, at $52, which I'd never heard before but would seek out. Morellino di Scansanos, from southern Tuscany, are 85% sangiovese and 15% "vintner's choice." The two on their menu are fabulous.
Our server was friendly and terrific, and surprisingly knowledgeable on wines for her young age.
This is a great place to go before or after seeing a performance at the nearby 12th Avenue Arts black box theater.

Genuinely authentic in a cool old part of the building. It's my favorite pizza in Seattle which wouldn't be my typical pick for an anniversary but it feels more like you are in iIaly and feels more upscale.

I suspect people come here for the pizza and the drinks, and not the atmosphere. The pizzas and appetizers we ordered were done well, and the service was attentive. We had been to the (now closed) Fremont location, so knew the ambience to expect--NOT a quiet, white-tablecloth experience. If you set your expectations appropriately, it is a good spot for a lively evening.

We always have a great time at Via Tribunali. Great value wines they source from Italy. Pizza is always great. Our son gets the Caprese on a stick (small bites) and we all have the Mezza Luna dessert (Nutella Calzone - not to be missed!)

Pizza is very good naples style. Enjoyed the vongole and the DOC very much. Did not enjoy the lighting so dark I could not read the menu or see what I was actually eating. We had a group of six (not particularly big people) and got stuck in a very tight booth - no other options at the time apparently. They have you slice your own pie with scissors and when you can barely move your elbows, its kind of a bummer so leave a couple of friends at home when you come here.

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.
