italian spaghetti hse-pizzeria is still a cornerstone for seattle pizza, although not as much in recent years. rumor has it that their meat vendor they bought pepperoni and salamis from went out of business a few years ago. somehow their pizza has not been good since. i still enjoy the pizza and the unpretentious atmosphere - reminds me of a midwest dive bar to bring real friends. leave your shiny-shirts and yuppie cell-phones at home.

My parents started taking us to this restaurant when we were kids. My parents are gone now and my sister and I have enjoyed meals at this restaurant for years until tonight. Our fav meal there was the manicotti and that is what my sister ordered tonight. I ordered the veal marsala which was pretty good but the portions were greatly reduced and everything was ala carte when they used to have a choice of a full meal with salad, soup, entree, & ice cream or the ala carte meal. I had the veal because I am on a low carb diet and when I asked if I could replace the side of pasta with vegetables, the server said that they did not have any although they could substitute a salad. The mushrooms on my veal were not fresh, they were canned although they tasted good. My sister's manicotti consisted of green pasta, which she was not expecting, but the server said that it was spinach pasta. She said the manicotti tasted like warm noodles with cottage cheese inside with very little mozzarella cheese on top. They have cut back on the salads, which used to have a slice of provolone cheese plus a couple slices of salami. The server took off the manicotti from the bill because my sister could not eat it. When we left, we went to the front and voiced our concerns about the food, but the woman we spoke with did nothing but make excuses and said that there were lots of new items on the menu and we should come back. Needless to say, we will not be back. This was my parent's favorite Italian restaurant for years and if they were still alive, they would be shocked if they experienced the reduced quality of food that we experienced tonight.

So, my boyfriend and I would always see this place on our way to the gym, and one weeknight, decided to give it a try. We were promptly seated, though our waitress was a bit grumpy. We ordered drinks, and I received my wine in a glass with a very obvious lipstick stain on the lip of the glass. Ick! I informed the waitress and she promptly returned with a different glass. I ordered the lasagna with a salad, and my boyfriend ordered a meat pizza. The bread in the basket was somewhat hard, and they included those cracker type ones, which I've never seen outside of a cafeteria. My lasagna looked like something you could get from the frozen aisle at the store, and tasted like it too. The pizza had a similar flavor and texture to grade school cafeteria food. I think even I could make better pizza and lasagna than what we had. For dessert we split spumoni icecream, which was fine, but then again, only required moving the item from one container to another. There's too many great restaurants to eat at to waste your time with this one.

The Spaghetti House is a great answer to the, "where should we go tonight," question. They have a good sized parking lot, quick service and consistently good food. The portions are more than adequate so you won't go home hungry. It is not a fancy dining experience, but it is a great place for the family.

Conveniently located on Lake City Way in North Seattle. Basic food selection and basic service but quality and quantity is there. Has been around for a long time.

I adore going to the Italian Spaghetti House, particularly on weeknights when it's not as crowded. I've never had anything there besides the pizza, but I've seen no reason to - it's AMAZING. By far the best pizza I've ever had - give it a try, it's worth it!

The late owner started this shortly after the war, and it has been a cultural icon since. Several generations of families have gronw up with this place. To my kids (and all of thier buds, and thier folks) up here in NE it is thier requested treat. Sure, some folks may scoff at "Americanized Italian" but everyone needs to drop the Seattle elitist foody schtick once in a while and join together as a familal unit or group of good friends and enjoy a big pile of cheese/tomato/basil. Always friendly, always consistent. If you are looking for filo, or tahini, or truffle oil, or sun-dried whatever then look elsewhere... Just lighten up and order a #14 and find real peace and harmony watching the kids smiles...

From the cozy booths to the comforting authentic ambiance. There are many choices from pizza to wonderful baked lasagna. Not a lot of wine selection, but enough to pair with the meal. The servers are nice and timely. Its a great family restaurant or a great first or 50th date restaurant. I would recommend and do recommend this restaurant to all I come across.

You have to try the veal marsala it can't be beat, be sure to get the full meal it comes with soup and salad. My partner and I have been going here for years.

Just went early on a Friday evening. Not much friendliness to speak of. Food tasted good. The most cordial the waitress got was when I left. Her service was one of the poorest experiences I have ever had, right down to her top rolled black stockings showing below her hemline. My husband and grand daughter went out to the car after we had all finished eating. I waited and waited and waited for the waitress to acknowlege this, to no avail. Finally (after about 8 minutes) as she wisked past me I asked for a to-go box. When she brought this she did ask if there would be anything else, I said, no just the check. Took at least another 5 minutes for this to come. Almost immediately she came back and asked if I needed her to take it up front for change. Fortunately, I had the exact amount for the check, right down to the forty-four cents, Which is all I left. No Tip was left, which is not like me at all, having been a waitress years ago. She did manage to say goodbye as I was walking out the door, I didn't reply.

We visited the restaurant on a weekday evening when it wasn't very busy. Our first impression wasn't a good one. Upon entering the restaurant there were four employees in immediate view, but nobody greeted us. We stood there for a while wondering whether we should seat ourselves when one of the women behind the counter finally asked us if we were there for dinner. She brought us to our table without a word, put two menus on the table, and walked away. No "hello" or "enjoy your dinner" or anything. It isn't something I typically think about or even notice until it's missing.
Our waitress, on the other hand was very friendly and provided great service. She was the best part of the evening. She checked back often and was fun to interact with. Kudos to her. Ambiance-wise the place looks dated, with yellowish lights and smoked-brown glasses and condiment containers. The doors on the front foyer don't quite close all the way. Overall it wasn't dirty or anything but there wasn't anything that made the place particularly interesting or comforatble. We ordered two pasta dishes and unfortunately they were very unimpressive. The pasta was soggy, and the sauces were very bland and generic as one would expect in a school cafeteria or a highway-side service area. I can't remember the last time I've been so disappointed with an Italian restaurant's pasta. I've seen positive reviews for their pizza but we didn't try it. Perhaps that accounts for the difference in ratings?
The price for our two-person dinner came to over $30 with tax and tip. We didn't even order alcohol or any beverages. Given that you can get a much better italian meal at Il Fornaio downtown or Palermo on Capitol Hill, I can't recommend this place. Heck, the pasta at Sbarro is better. I wish I had something better to say since it's a family-run local restaurant, but I wanted to provide my impressions to people here to balance out the extreme claims in some of the other reviews.

Pros: Friendly waitress. Free parking.

Cons: Very bland and disappointing pasta. Pricey for such plain food. Unfriendly hostess.

I pass by this place all the time and the parking lot is always full. i decided to go in there with my friend one night. First of all, their bread is dry and the butter solid... I ordered their sphagetti with sausage.. the service was relatively quick.. but the sausage was horrible... it was undercooked and tasteless (not like an italian sausage should be). My friend had ordered chicken parmiagana... he got a really small helping of spaghetti on the side and a thick layer of tasteless cheese floating on the chicken. As if the food itself was not bad enough, I got sick within an hour of eating there! I don't know why so many people trash chains like Olive Garden, atleast for the money you pay, I have never been disappointed with their food/service or gotten sick from eating there.

All dough is made fresh on premise. Good sauce and the toppings are all of the highest quality. Family owned since 1957 and still going strong. Busy on weekend nights. Try the takeout, only 20 minutes and your pie is ready. Friendly people and locally owned.

So I've been seeing their full parking lot for years and finally got around to trying it. I wish I hadn't bothered. The bread they served hadn't even been fully defrosted when it landed on the table, the butter was too cold to spread and the breadsticks are like you'd expect at a Denny's-class cheap diner.

If you do go, order ala carte. The meal which comes with soup and a salad costs far more than its worth. The reason is that the salad is the cheap one from costco (you know -- the one with all of the purple cabbage in it as filler?). They made a nod to making the salad "italian" by putting a single olive in it and topping it with processed cheeze-food fake provolone. The minestrone is quite obviously canned -- and on top of that tasted like it had been re-heated twice already.

My lasagne came out and it was just awful -- the sauce was hideously acidic, and the cheese was scorched to the pan. My wife's dish had the same awful sauce coupled with inedible sausage.

The restaraunt could have been romantic if it hadn't been filled with the sound of the waitstaff arguing with the kitchen staff ("I said one ravioli, one rigatoni!") and the tacky-as-hell decorations detracted further.

Overall: when I saw the rusting appliances they'd piled up at the back of their parking lot I should have realized that this place was trash.

I love this place. First of all it's not a chain like Olive Garden. I know it's not the absolute best Italian food you can get but it's darn close. The atmosphere almost reminds me of being a great Greek Restaurant. Instead of a miniature of the Greek ruins it muraled and decorated with Chianti bottles and palstic grapes. I know some people would call it tacky but I call it great and comforatable. The service is always great. I love that fact that the waitresses have been there for a while and I like that you can eat for one or a large group at reasonsable prices. Yes, I do miss the glamor of having a dish of olive oil with balsamic vinegar but at least there is bread and if you ask they will bring you the oil. I know there are mixe reviews on this but over all it's a great ole' place.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! I highly recommend it, whether you're just stopping for a quick bite to eat on your way home, taking the whole family out for a great meal, or going on a date! My boyfriend and I have made this our New Years Eve tradition to eat dinner here, and will for many years to come. I've never had a bad meal, the service is fast and the staff is wonderful. And the prices are great too!

I had to write a review on this particular restaurant after viewing it's current rank way down on the list below Alfy's and Zeeks. C'mon people... are you all that far out of touch with culinary taste? The Italian Spaghetti House and Pizzeria has by far and away the best pizza not only in Seattle but the entire west coast. The crust is home made and hand tossed right in the kitchen behind the cash register and tastes like pastry when you wrap your lips around a perfect slice of heaven. Their sauce has to be a secret recipe from the Sicillian hilltops... Don Corleone would be so lucky! I give this place a resounding 10 on the ratings scale! Get a pizza to go (as I often do myself traveling all the way from Ballard) or eat in. Bring a partner and enjoy a delicious anti-pasta salad as well.

I saw some bad reviews for this place and just had to put my love for this place on the record. So here it goes: I love this place and have been going there for years. It's nice to have a place that you can dress up for or not. Jeans, sweatshirt, dress, slacks, doesn't matter. I love the tortelinni and the lasagna. Nowadays we just call it in and take out, but the food is always excellent. I have never had the pizza, so don't take my word on that, but the pasta is great. Do yourself a favor and swing by on the way home for some lasagna, you won't be sorry. In addition, the french bread is great, the breadsticks are not.

I pass by the Italian Spaghetti house every day, so finally I visited it with a few friends. It is about the worst $10 meal I've ever had. The pizza had canned (slimy) mushrooms. The breadsticks were those small crispy ones that come in individual packets (like soup crackers). The salad was a small plate of iceberg lettuce with maybe a couple of other vegetables.

The server was also rude.

There are so many great Italian restaurants in Seattle that there is no reason to waste any time or money here.

This was our first time taking a chance on this place... we like to support local businesses when we can... and it's about what I expected. That is to say, it's not all that good. The service was fine, the place is kind of fun, and the food was edible for the most part, but I can get much better for the same amount or less in several places. We will give it one more chance on their pizza (we had the lasagna this time), but if it's still not great, we'll pretty mcuh write it off and probably never go again. Too bad.

the first time i came here i thought it was a cheesy "italian" restaurant, but i soon found to enjoy it. However, i prefer to order the food and pick it up, rather than dine there....anyways, i have fallen in love with the marinara sauce! it took a while to get used to but, one day i just couldn't stop eating it! The minestrone is not too bad either. some of the food i don't really have a taste for as my family does, such as the #11 pizza (pepperoni and canned mushrooms) and the hard-to-find breadsticks. Otherwise the staff is excellent, very happy to be there and the service and food is great. Also, i like their menu/meal choices

Best pizza in town for my money. Good parking, but can be crowded on busy nights.
Good service. Children friendly and space available for large groups. Over six reservations recomended. Prices are reasonable. Have been in business over forty years.

Thats right, the grandmother that could'nt cook, and you dreaded going to her house to eat.

I think the food is a mix of Chef Boyardee and Hamburger helper. The sauce tastes like ketchup, and the sausages are unexplainable in flavor.

Canned mushrooms on their pizza (but the waitress warned me about that, allowing me to switch to something else). Generic bread. Soup possibly from a can, or at least parts of it. Pizza decent.

All in all, an ok casual place to go if you just want ok food and no wait, but nothing to write home to Italy about.

This place has the best pizza you'll find in the greater Seattle area, by far! We've been regular customers for 27 years, and it's nice to see the same employees faces year after year. Keep up the great work!

Over twenty-two years ago, when I lived in north Seattle and I discovered this great Italian restaurant. Good Pizza, great dinners. Unfortunately we moved to the eastside and time did not permit us to visit lake city very often. I must confess that it has been over five years since made the trek.

To my great surprise, not much has changed. They still had great food, presented by personable servers and very reasonable prices. I had the fettuccine al burro (alfredo sauce) and my wife had the cannelloni. I also recommend the lasagna.

Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante went well with the meal. I made a resolution to visit again soon.

I have been a serious pizza eater for more than thirty years now, and I've tried pizza all over the country. The pizza at the Italian Spaghetti House was by far one of the most enjoyable to the palet!

I don't know what know what some of these people are talking about. I have never had a bad dish here in hundreds of meals. The pasta dishes are well above average and the pizza is excellent. I tend to stick with what I like, the chef's special pizza, lasagna, cantaloni, manacotti, mostacioli and meatballs, antipasto salad. The pasta dinners are a real bargain, soup and salad, bread and dessert.

Even though I am no conisseuer... the BEST Minestrone soup I've ever had and they make it from scratch every day!
The Lasagna and Tortellini's are Fabulous as well. I get a combo of the red & cream sauce - to die for! It's so rich I can never finish, but the leftovers are even better the next day.
One of my favorites... it's a special treat to go there! Definitely worth the trip!

We visited probably 20 Itlalian restaurants for lasagna and this won. You know this place - busy, bustling service, big families, the Itallian Ivar's. I didn't expect greatness, just solid food, and lasgana isn't gourmet fare anyway, but the only superior dish we ate was at Romio's in Vancouver BC, and that's a long drive. All hail the victor. We came, we ate, we got stuffed to the gills.

I have gone to this restaurant over the years and found it to be a good deal. Nothing fancy, but good pasta dishes and pizza. Tonight I decided to try something different on the menu. Big Mistake! I ordered Chicken al la Parmesan. I got two chicken breasts smothered in cheese and sauce. The only problem was that the chicken tasted and looked very familiar. I'm nearly positive it was the formed shaped frozen Tyson Mesquite chicken breasts I buy at Sam's Club once in a while. I don't mind them at home for a quick lunch, but I do mind paying $15 and expecting real chicken and getting them at a restaurant.

Entrees are good, but pricey. But the pizza is bland and pricey. Was hoping for a nice chewey crust, but turned out flat and flavorless. Even though I'm from Chicago, I actually prefer Godfathers or Pizza Hut pizzas to the pizza here.

This is the real deal of 50's style Italian dining in the vein of once-hip-now-not capilol hill hang out Spaghetti Reds. All the meals you'd expect and remember from your childhood (the meat sauce is a particular blast from the past) - the dinner menu includes bread, soup, salad, entree and ice cream for under $15 in many cases.

This family run restauraunt has been on the go since 1957 - my only gripe was the decor which looks as though it had been redone in recent years - I'd have loved it if it was dark red walls etc etc but you can't have everything & I'm sure most of their customers are more than happy just the way it is.
