Simply the best pizza here in Oregon.
I can't really review this pizza highly enough.
Being an east coast resident for 26 years of my life, I had my choice of top quality pizza places to choose from. Original Italian families setting up true pizzeria experiences was the norm and going out for pizza was an experience for the whole family.
As a person who is also 50% Italian, having a good pizza place to go to was almost synonymous with other concepts like 'family,' 'love' and 'passion.'
What I mean is that pizza means something to me.
Having moved to Oregon nearly 9 years ago, it was difficult for an east coaster to find a pizza place that was even close to the caliber that one would find back home. You would ask if someone knew of a pizza place and they would all say 'Pizza Hut' or 'Domino's'. It was horrific to realize that the association of 'pizza' to Oregonians was of the same standard of food that McDonald's or Burger King provide.
It was heartbreaking... :(
Fast forward to 2007 when I was driving to the DMV and noticed the 'Bellagio's Pizza' sign in Tualatin. I pulled in and ordered a piece of pepperoni, mushroom and black olive for lunch.
Ever since that day my family and I have not gone to another pizza place other than Bellagio's. The quality of pizza is second to none here in Oregon and the staff seems to care about the clientele in a very warm, 'family-type' manner. We are welcomed each time AND I feel that I know this staff from our weekly conversations. They are an exceptional bunch of people who just provide an exceptional, unbeatable pizza here in Oregon.
My kids now look forward to going in on our weekly Pizza Friday and I feel that I am passing on a family tradition that I had previously though unavailable anywhere but on the east coast.
Thank you so much, Bellagios Pizza! We are your customers for life :D
Thanks so much for your kind words. I thought I was the only one that related pizza to family, love and passion. I don't even feel like we are in the same business as the pizza companies you mentioned. Thanks for appreciating a quality product and a great team in Tualatin!!
