Seattle is well known for it’s rich tapestry of startups. This is a city with a storied tradition of support for the entrepreneurial support.

Good place. Somewhat cheaper than Apollo's, and the food is much better. The Greek salad has tons of olives and is enormous for what you get (around 7$). The best thing is that they deliver to the Rio hotel, where I was staying. Apollo's is the other pizza place nearby, where the delivery guy lied to me, saying they couldn't come up to the hotel, so I went down and tipped him too. Bad move. Sarfino's is better and cheaper.

The food was pretty decent. But I had ordered from the Rio Hotel. THE DELIVERY GUY LIED TO ME and said they weren't allowed to come up to the room. So, I said, "that's cool" and I tipped him $3. Then I realized what he said was not true, because Sarfino's at 4860 W. Desert Inn, DOES deliver to your room. Never lie to your customers, as it tends to spin the karmic wheel backwards to your detriment.
