Ever since Bar Cotto (our original favorite place for pizza in Seattle) changed owners, we worried that we’d never eat their perfect pies again. Luckily, the same team also opened up Capitol Hill spot Rione XIII. They serve pizzas that remind us of the ones at Bar Cotto, only they’re Roman-style - which is kind of like a combination between New York-style and Neapolitan pizza. When you just got dumped or need a solo-pie-and-glass-of-wine-at-the-bar night, you’ll want to come here and order the margherita. If you’re more in the mood for pasta, their cacio e pepe and bucatini l’amatriciana are great.
