Tutta Bella serves free pizzas to celebrate national award
August 17, 2010
Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria is serving free pizza through Aug. 22 to celebrate the latest honor the Seattle-based mini-chain has received: Independent Pizzeria of the Year.
Tutta Bella bested more than 33,000 independent pizza restaurants nationwide to earn the title from Pizza Today, a trade publication. Founder Joe Fugere plans to celebrate by offering a free pizza to every table.
The offer applies to both lunch and dinner for dine-in guests only. The freebie is not valid with any other offer.
Last June, Fugere opened a restaurant in Issaquah at 715 N.W. Gilman Blvd. The chain includes three pizzerias in Seattle.
“I have personally visited Tutta Bella four different times over the years, and I’ve never left any of the company’s four locations without feeling absolutely blown away by the superior food quality, service, attention to detail, ambiance, you name it,” Pizza Today Editor in Chief Jeremy White said in a news release. “This might well be the perfect pizzeria.”
Tutta Bella is the first Vera Pizza Napoletana in the Pacific Northwest. The certification means pizza made at Tutta Bella pizzerias meets exacting standards set by the Italian government.
