Yummy Pizza and Great Service
Krissm A. from Tacoma, WA, visited on January 13, 2023: “Yummy pizza and great service. It was our first visit to Vashon island. This pizza place is connected to a grocery store. Easy to find, lots of parking.”
Krissm highlights one of the unique aspects of Vashon Pizza – its location right next to the Vashon Market IGA. This convenience makes it easy for both locals and visitors to grab a delicious meal on the go.
Not All Reviews Are Positive
With its tight-knit community, Vashon Island often reflects its people’s warmth. Unfortunately, not all experiences are positive, as indicated by the reviews of Jamie a. from Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA, and John I. and Melanie P. from Rosemead, CA. Their experiences were marred by what seemed to be an isolated incident of rudeness. While we hope this was a one-off situation, mentioning it for transparency is essential.
A Unique Pizza Destination
Cindy W., an Elite Yelper from Santa Rosa, CA, visited in 2018 and had this to say: “Vashon is a tiny island, and there are not a great deal of places to dine. This little hole in the wall of IGA is primarily a takeout place, as the interior leaves much to be desired, let’s call it bohemian. We ordered the chicken pesto pizza, and it was a good quality and taste.”
Cindy brings to light the unique charm of Vashon Pizza. Located within the Vashon Market IGA, it might not boast a lavish interior, but it more than makes up for it with its quality offerings.
Mixed Reviews on Flavor
Richard K., an Elite Yelper from Vernon-Rockville, CT, offers a balanced view: “While I like to give restaurants five stars if I think they do a pretty good job, which this pizza place does, but, for me, two things were lacking. First was I could tell the pizza had all the proper ingredients, and could kind of taste them, but no flavors stood out, like I couldn’t really taste sausage, nor the pepperoni. They were there, could see them, but was sort of bland flavor.”
While Vashon Pizza provides a satisfactory experience for many, others find the flavors somewhat muted. Taste can be subjective, and it’s always a good idea to try it for yourself.
