Bambino’s wins the award for the best Seattle pizza that your friends probably aren’t talking about - it’s a sleepy spot even though it’s located on a busy Belltown corner. You might notice on the menu that you need to specify if you want your crust to be “light,” because they’re very serious about charring the bottom of each pie. Do not request this light option - go dark. The result is excellent, especially in the form of a margherita with buffalo mozzarella so creamy it turns the sauce pink.
