Looking for the best place to get pizza that is delivered in West Seattle and also looking for the best place to get sub sandwiches that are delivered.
For about ten people.August 14, 2011 at 6:43 pm #732085
pizza Guess it depends on where you are (Pagliacci has limited delivery area), how much you want to spend, thin crust, thick crust, etc. I use Lucianos mostly because they’re nearby. http://www.mylucianos.com Some like Garlic Jim’s, some like Red Star. Some even like Domino’s and Papa John’s . Give them all a try.
I don’t know of a place that delivers sub sandwiches. That happens on the east coast, not here :)August 14, 2011 at 7:49 pm #732086
Amante Pizza and Pasta delivers its sub sandwiches, as well as pasta and other menu items. You can even order online. And while they are much further north than Pagliacci – they, unlike Pagliacci, will deliver here to south West Seattle (Pagliacci “expanded” to SW Holden a few years back. Still short of WSB HQ. Hmph.) And no, they are not and have never been a sponsor (we don’t have any pizza sponsors or else I’d mention them too), nor do we have any other affiliation, we’re just customers!August 14, 2011 at 11:32 pm #732087
Just tried Red Star for the first time. AMAZING – roasted veggies were sweet and delicious. I was surprised and impressed. Way better than Luccianos, Garlic Jim’s, etc.August 15, 2011 at 1:30 am #732088
ditto on red star pizza…havent’ had one for a while but i did love the meatball sub with the addition of pepperocinis nice people too.August 15, 2011 at 1:48 am #732089August 15, 2011 at 1:58 am #732090
Another vote for Red Star.. Great pizza, ran by a super friendly local couple, vintage video games free to play while you wait… plus you can’t beat their prices!August 15, 2011 at 3:15 am #732091
I supose if one wants hot subs dfelivered, yes, that will happen. But if one wants a cold one with maybe ham, coppa, salami, provolone, peppers, onions, lettuce, tomato, oil, vinegar (yes, yum)…one would need to go somewhere and buy it. I know of no one who will deliver a sammie like that. If you do, please tell me – lol. To me that’s a sub sandwich. The ones I can get from Lucianos, Amante? They are hot grinders to me-although I do love a good meatball sub every now and then :)August 15, 2011 at 3:31 am #732092
JanS! As one of our distinguished Fall ’08 pizza judges I think you’re very generous to recommend some of the pizza venues that scored so low in our last tasting:
Actually, it might just be time to reconvene our judges as, not only have there been many new entries into the pizza realm in the past few years, but the new outlets for pizza have really raised the bar for authentic, high-quality pizzas in West Seattle.August 15, 2011 at 3:39 am #732093
since you are ordering for a larger amount of people, you might try contacting Tat’s Delicatessin in Pioneer Square. The owners live in West SEattle, and they do catering, like trays of food. Here’s the website..call and see what they can do :)
also..Jimmy John’s (location on 1st Ave. S in SODO near Krispy Kreme), does catering for groups. I am esp. fond of their #9, The Italian Night Club, with hot peppers :) http://www.jimmyjohns.com/menu/menu.aspxAugust 15, 2011 at 3:42 am #732094
Christopher..have you been to Pizzeria 22 yet? I really need to get there, since they’re so close to home. I understand that their pizza is yummy. I’ve heard good things about the various pizza places in Georgetown(not technically WS, but close), too.
Hey..the guy wanted to know about delivery..some of the best pizza places don’t deliver :)August 15, 2011 at 5:34 am #732095
JanS: Have not been to P22 yet. Definitely on the short list though.
You’re forgetting about Zeeks. They deliver. They have an easy online ordering system. And I’d put them among the best of the (relatively) new entires into the WS pizza market in the past few years.August 15, 2011 at 5:45 am #732096
Funny, I never order from Zeeks. It’s all the way on the other end of Calif. Ave, and just don’t think of it. Another place I never think of is Abbondanza, since they only deliver to Beveridge Place Pub. I’ve eaten there, though, and the pizza is very good.August 15, 2011 at 4:47 pm #732097
Tried all of the high end gourmet offerings in WS – even the new one with the real fire stove (which is you like the crisp crust with a hint of burnt edges…that was ok.)
Zeeks has new white sauce offerings…but I get the impression they would deliver to Tacoma if you ask and want cold pizza.
Abodanza makes a solid pie too but very limited delivery.
Pagliacci’s is still the best all-around in WS!!! Seattle Weekly patrons voted them best chain for 20+ years! They have like 20 something stores to service all over Seattle and East side…
As for the WS Pags delivery area (relative to store location in north Alaska Junction)…I’ve contacted the local GM and it was explained that beyond their limits today they would be delivering warm / cold pizza – made sense to me.
Areas noted to me as North to Alki Point, all of Alki, East to just off Delridge & Genessee, and South to 28th & all down Holden, Fauntleroy to Kenyon, West all along Beach Drive)…
On slower days, I do know they go outside of those defined areas – If you call and ask and understand the extra time and possibility for less than hot za!
Pagliacci’s makes it clear they wants repeat patrons with high quality product and delivery…and I’m proud to have about 40 orders in the last 12 months…even got a free order for being a Super Customer!August 15, 2011 at 6:27 pm #732098
365 – just because this is an old cause with us, going back even before we went all-news-all-the-time in late 2007 … this was part of the series of discussions in early 2007:
Pizza shops that are further north manage to make it to places further south than us (a few blocks south of Pagliacci’s SW Holden line) without getting cold. We don’t patronize Amante (which is almost a full mile north of Pagliacci) because I think they’re better, but because much of the point of pizza is that you are time-pressed (yeah, I know, us and the rest of the world) and want SOMEBODY to deliver SOMETHING. We’ve been Pagliacci customers since before they opened the WS shop 15 or so years ago … but would be much more often if they delivered a bit further south. Not a big issue in our life but just a continuing, puzzling point. Delivering to “all of Alki” is farther than a straight shot south to this end of California (2.4 miles to our house, 3.2 miles to Alki Point, for example). We live in a hovel adjacent to much pricier bluffside view homes and I suspect some of them would be happy to spend more on gourmet pizza.
Of course, pizza is amazingly subjective, as this thread and many others prove :) I do hope the OP has found a good option by now if the party’s not already over! – Tracy
P.S. And per the rant rules … yes, we discussed this with management :)August 15, 2011 at 7:31 pm #732099
WSB (Tracy)…strong basis points on mileage and direct routes… whos the best pizza discussions certainly bring the passion out of some…for sure…almost like it was the most important thing out there… ;)
“DONT mess with my comfort food zone dude!” Ha.
Anyway – my neighbor on Thistle got Pags delivery just this last Friday – he didn’t have to beg…I know you can get it if you’re in that area…just ask…
It’s another avenue…but I suppose if enough of WS makes contact to: http://www.pagliacci.com/contact
…possible expansion of regular service to a new south/east border would be up for consideration? At least the owner made a response in 2007…August 15, 2011 at 8:24 pm #732100August 16, 2011 at 5:21 am #732101August 17, 2011 at 4:39 pm #732102August 17, 2011 at 7:49 pm #732103
Am a recent convert to Red Star. Plenty of pizza in Admiral area, but would just as soon throw my biz to Red Star. Good pizza. Good prices.November 14, 2011 at 9:28 am #732104
I like my pizza and pasta a little old fashioned. If you share my likings, I suggest Dominoes.November 15, 2011 at 2:06 am #732105
Red Star Pizza has very good sub sandwiches too and fresh salads as well.
two thumbs up and close to my home. Mark.inWSeattleNovember 15, 2011 at 3:50 am #732106November 15, 2011 at 4:44 am #732107
It seemed like the pizza at Pizzaria 22 went soggy very quickly. Of course, I was just one person gobbling the pizza, so maybe it was my timing. I love the subs at Amante, because it’s one of the few places that has subs with mayo instead of marinara sauce (try a canadian bacon grinder, soooo cheesy). And another vote for Red Star.November 15, 2011 at 7:09 am #732108
I dunno what Pag’s is worried about, the one in W. Seattle ALWAYS under-cooks the pizza. I’ve started ordering them uncut, toss the bricks in the oven, crank it to 500 F., and finish cooking the pizza to my taste (which is NOT burned, but certainly a few degrees darker than the light beige the folks over here cook it to).
Comes out hot, every time.
This was not a rant. At first I was a bit ticked off, especially when it happened repeatedly, but I actually prefer to finish cooking the pizza at home.
