This is definitely one of the finer pizzas I've had. Great crust. Light and crispy, but still substantial. Charred nicely. Zippy and flavorful sauce. 1 pizza is good to share for 2 for a light meal. Good beer and wine list. Wine was pretty on the Italian. Service was really friendly and very efficient.

We first visited SP near Pike Place in May of 2010. Amazed at the creativity in the stripped down pies. Potatoes? Fennel sausage? Sooooo good. On a return trip last Sept we visited with our three year old. Food was outstanding, and the same creative options were available. I only wish the pie variety was deeper...and while the crust tastes... More

I love good pizza, tried most places in seattle, keep coming back to Serious Pie. It is the only Tom Douglas eating place that I would give praise to.

The pizza here is first rate and the service was friendly and helpful. That said, the policy of a mandatory tip of 20% puts a negative feeling to the place.

First off-the place was packed. Very popular. I guess I just don't have an appreciation for pizza that's not a meat combo. Sausage pizza was good just not worth $23 in my opinion. Service charge of 20% is auto added. BTW-Great service. I wouldn't go back.

This wood fire pizza joint is great for a casual meal of funky pizza and has a good tap list. I just feel it is a little over the top to have a 20% gratuity added to your bill. Why is it that I can choose how much I want to tip? I'm always shocked that an established restaurant feels... More

I was not a happy camper when I saw that Serious Pie automatically charges 20% tip on your bill. The wages in Seattle are already high and to impose 20% for service in such a restaurant where a) the turnover is really quick and b) there is not a lot on the menu that requires 20% extra pay for a...

A friend recommended Serious Pie to me and so glad he did. This spot is wonderful! Had a quick lunch here after a business meeting and thoroughly enjoyed the pizza special I ordered, which had pomegranate bits, pancetta, hazelnuts, blue cheese and carmelized fennel (I believe). Super unique and wonderful flavors on a crispety perfectly wood fired crust. And of... More

Great pizza, good wine, friendly staff and crowded but fun atmosphere. Yes, you'll be bumping elbows with the person sitting beside you and will hardly know where to put your keys and coat... but so what! It's called communal dining with the locals and maybe that's how we were supposed to eat. I didn't give 5 stars because in all... More

We ordered a salad, carrot appetizer, and the buffalo mozzarella pizza. The pizza was delicious and we loved the appetizers just as much. Service was fun and friendly. Get the coconut cream pie for dessert! Divine! Great experience and a fun night out!
