It's feast or famine in West Seattle. Restaurants cluster together like grapes in bunches around the Junction, the Admiral District and other commercial strips, but vast arterials stretch between them without any food in sight.
Olympia Pizza & Spaghetti House — operated by Nick and Reni Georgiev in tandem with a restaurant of the same name in Wallingford — helps to fill a long, hungry gap on Delridge Way Southwest.
The menu: A lengthy list of offerings starts with standard Greek and Italian dishes (souvlaki, manicotti, ravioli, eggplant parmigiana) and veers into more creative fusions (chipotle chicken calzones and Mexican pizza with taco meat and jalapeños). Salads, sandwiches and pizzas promise to satisfy diverse cravings.
What to write home about: The House Special Pizza is a winning combo of pepperoni, Canadian bacon, salami, Italian sausage, mushrooms, black olives and green peppers at a good price ($20.65 for a large, 14-inch pie). Olympia pies will especially please devotees of thick, chewy crust and extra cheese.
What to skip: The beer list. It's hard to believe that in Seattle there are still pizza joints without beer on tap. Not an issue, of course, if you're just looking for a good place to bring the Little League team — or if you're a fan of Mythos, a bottled, Greek beer.
The setting: A counter sits up front for ordering takeout; just past that, you'll find a modest collection of plum-colored booths and tables. Big windows on the street side bring in lots of light.
Summing up: Two large pizzas fed three adults and two kids, with a few slices to spare, for $45.22.
