Review

Bellingham has some good pizza restaurants but my hope of finding a GREAT pizza place in town was starting to fade. A friend mentioned that there was an amazing restaurant located in a Sudden Valley shopping center. Great pizza is almost never found in a shopping center, much less a tiny one in Sudden Valley, I scoffed. And yet, it is true! The eight-mile drive out to Tino’s Pizza & Pasta Company is worth it.

One test of great pizza is to try the cheese. A cheese pizza can’t hide behind any fancy toppings and the sauce makes or breaks the whole thing. Tino’s has great cheese pizza. The popular veggie pizza has artichoke hearts, onion, olives, mushrooms, green peppers, spinach, tomatoes and extra cheese. Other popular specials include the pesto, the Mexi, barbequed chicken, the meat lover’s pizza and the Tino’s special, with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, sausage, green peppers, olives, mushrooms, onions and extra cheese. The morning-after test is another way to test pizza. Tino’s pizza holds up well for breakfast and even tastes good eaten cold. Another plus: the almost obscene size of the portions. One pasta dish could provide up to three meals. The calzones cover an entire dinner plate and the servers seem to get a good workout carrying them across the room. Tino’s calzones have homemade dough with three kinds of cheese: mozzarella, Parmesan and ricotta. Sandwiches are also on the menu (meatball, turkey, turkey dip au Jus, beef dip, Italian sausage, veggie and others.)

Other nice things about Tino’s include the bottomless soft drinks, cheesecake or spumoni ice cream for dessert, and a selection of beers on tap. The atmosphere is relaxed and a big screen television can help you take your mind off the world. But if the outside world is just too much, the restaurant delivers--but only in Sudden Valley and after 5 p.m.
