Via Tribunali QA (Sea)

So after a year I make it to Via Tribunali on Queen Anne. It was a Monday night at 5:30, We (my wife and I) walk in, and the place is pretty empty. We sit in one of the booths (after decining an offer to sit upstairs - which seemed odd I would think they would want to at least make the main floor look populated before filling the balcony).

We order two glasses of Ruffino, and two pies. Wine comes in jelly gasses, which is appropriate, then our two pies come quickly thereafter.

I have had wood fired pizza from the old Cucina Cucina that I have liked more -heck - I've had better frozen pizza !!!!

I was expecting a hot, crispy crusted delight - instead we got a warm, wet, soggy bottomed mess. The fresh mozzerella must have had a high water content because the pie was way to moist. there was hardly any carmalization, and no dark brown spots on the crust. It was pizza, and it wasn't uncooked, just cooked badly, so I didn't feel that I should send it back, it just wasn't what I expected.

All in all - not worth the 45 bucks we spent
