Best Pizza in the Rainier Valley

Vince's

Seattle is currently in the throes of romance with Neapolitan pizza, and Rainier Valley is no different, with Tutta Bella and Pulcinella Pizzeria Napoletana occupying real estate in the 'hood. Owned by the folks who opened the latter, Vince's boasts a dining area reminiscent of Lake City's Italian Spaghetti House. Vince's fare, however, is akin to that of Eastlake's criminally underrated Pazzo's—crispy-crusted tavern pizza in a city that's short on it. Frequently adorned with golf-ball sausages and juicy black olives, Vince's pies are delicious. Additionally, they have Moretti on tap, and the antipasto salad, served with a side of sardines, is mountainous. The cocktail lounge is atmospherically foreign to the restaurant half of the establishment, which caters mainly to families, many of them Caucasian. Meanwhile, the bar's patrons are almost exclusively middle-aged African-Americans, and the lounge's jukebox boasts more classic R&B hits than you're likely to find at, say, Tutta Bella. Then again, you won't find a jukebox at Tutta Bella.—Mike Seely
