Most slice joints in Seattle are bad. Not the case at Ballard Pizza Company, which is not far off from a New York-style “two slices and a soda” style lunch (only with toppings like prosciutto and egg on said slices). Add the Italian chopped salad if you feel the need for some greens with your carbs.

Raccolto is a West Seattle Italian spot from the same people behind Contadino, and the pasta is almost as good. If you can’t get a seat, try the bar.
Bizzarro Italian Cafe
Bizzarro in Wallingford kind of looks like a circus horror movie set, but it somehow works. Probably because the Italian food is so great.
