[SEA] Tutta Bella

Five of us stopped by for my girlfriend's birthday lunch on Saturday. We'd been wanting to try this place for a good while, so the birthday made a good excuse.

Quick caveat: while I've spent a fair amount of time in Italy, I've never made it as far south as Naples, so I'm frankly pretty ignorant about Neapolitan pizza. I do know that I liked what I had at Tutta Bella. The wood-fired oven is really impressive.

I had a half margherita, half pancetta e pomodoro. My girlfriend had half marinara, half campania. All of them were good, but the margherita and campania had the nicest flavor combinations for my palate. The campania was surprisingly spicy, and the margherita is one of those classics that just doesn't get old.

My girlfriend was slightly disappointed that the crust wasn't crispier on the bottom. I was quite satisfied with it, though--it was thin, yet very springy and chewy, with just a little bit of crunch on the bottom.

The service was good, and it's almost comical how quickly you get your pizza--I think someone said it takes about 90 seconds to bake it once it's assembled.
