Rehearsal lunch/dinner at a pizza place- Help! Where?

I am looking for a space that can hold about 20+ people on a Saturday afternoon. The pizza can be either gourmet style or greasy filly tasty type. The rehearsal is in the Eastlake area, but I would be willing to travel a bit (Ballard, Capitol Hill, etc). Any suggestions? Any great pizza joints have a private room or large group space? Suggestions please! Thank you*

  1. For a NON greasy "filly tasty type" I would recommend Northlake Pizza. Online at northlaketavern.com for more details. They don't have a separate room, but could accomodate that number of people I would think.

    1. I need to learn to use spellcheck- I meant filling + tasty pizza :)

      1. I think via trib on queen anne has a private area. See private dining:

        Maybe Veraci? They also have that mobile oven and could come to you...

        1. Pazzo's is down in that neck of the woods. Never been terribly impressed with the pizza, but really like the calzones. It has the space for you to take over and, if you get lucky, has an outdoor area with about 3-4 tables that could accomodate that number of people. It has drinks and beer and is all ages. Call to make sure of the hours.

          Northlake is a tavern, so plan accordingly if minors involved. Good pizza, but a little too thick for me (my wife brings me here every few months).

          1. Although not technically open until 4:00PM on Saturday I bet you could get Varlamos Pizza to make arrangements for a large group. I used to work nearby and always really liked the pizza and calzones. They also do some good sandwiches. It's probably in the filling though not too greasy category. It's Greek but it's a little different than your typical Seattle Greek pizza place and I mean that in a good way. The selection is broad enough to satisfiy most from the meathead to the vegan. I'm a fan of the Kosta Special.

            1. Bambino's in Belltown is known for hosting parties, they will even do a special menu with 24 hours notice.

                If Bambino's does parties then I think they would be a good bet. I'm a fan of their pizza and it's my wife's favorite pizza.

                This is probably a good excuse for you to eat a lot of pizzas for research purposes.

              2. Fondi's near University Village is very good, and can accommodate large parties, although there is no private room. Pizza and salads are very good. http://fondi.com/page/home. The reaction of people I've taken there is, "this is much better than Tutta Bella!"

                  I also like Fondi and they have great salads.

                2. Thanks for the replies so far! Keep them coming :) I now have places to check out!

                    I would check out Kylie's Chicago Pizza in Fremont (On 36th @ Fremont). They only have 30+ seats, but don't open until 5pm on Saturdays. If you were willing to go in just before that, I am sure they would open early just for your party. Give the owner/manager, Lance, a call (206) 632-2266.
