After trying almost every pizza place in Seattle, this pizza was the worst. We had a carry out order and the pizza was soggy and tasteless when we got it home. The pizza may be better right from the oven. We had heard good things about Olympia (and the service was very good), so we were very disappointed and will not go back. We like Coyote Creek and Flying Pie much better.

In contrast to many of the yuppie pizza places in Seattle, Olympia Pizza is like an East coast-style pizzeria, the kind of place that you can truly imagine your own mother running (and no, I wouldn't say this about most places I eat). Simple red vinyl seats, a few pictures on the wall but nothing fancy or stylish or hip. For those from the East coast, it feels like every neighborhood pizza joint you grew up with. I only gave it a 3.5 for ambiance because I wasn't sure everyone would be into this aesthetic - though for me personally, I found nothing so comforting as hunching over a bowl of warm soup across from a friend on a rainy night, instantly feeling like I'd sat in that same place a thousand times since the age of 3.<p>The pizza is good, the soup I had excellent. The service was exactly what I expected it to be given the price range and type of venue.<p>Overall, a very comfortable, homey place.

I recently ate here and had an excellent baked manicotti. I do recommend it. The service was quite good and the food was on the table in no time.
