Paid for by Committee to Reelect Judge North, P.O. Box 27113, Seattle, WA 98165

Description: A classy Italian eatery and bar where gigantic efforts are undertaken to ensure the most authentic experience possible.

What this entails: A great many of Via Tribunali's goods are imported from Italy (such as tomatoes, sauce, red pepper, flour, all the wine, the napkins, pizza boxes, forks, knives, plates, Parmesan-cheese shakers, the doors, the doors' hinges, the standing platforms for the pizza makers, and the oven).

The oven too?: Yup. They import the bricks, the mortar, and even the crew that builds it.

What the oven will remind you of: Either an igloo (Capitol Hill's has shiny white bricks and a domed top) or the Brothers Grimm (it's not difficult to imagine it as being the exact same oven into which little Gretel shoved the cannibal witch).

Happy hours: Capitol Hill: Sun–Thurs 10:30 pm–midnight, Fri–Sat 11 pm– midnight (other happy-hour schedules vary per location—check listings at thestranger.com/chow for details).
