Tutta Bella-Crossroads and the other Tutta Bella locations, Columbia City, Stone Way, Westlake and Issaquah, are all open for lunch and dinner seven days a week and recently expanded the Happy Hour to twice daily from 3 to 6pm and 9 to close, offering a $3 – $6 food & beverage menu that is available in the entire restaurant.
Tutta Bella’s core purpose is to nourish lives and community involvement has been woven into daily operations since opening the Columbia City location in 2004. Some of these community partners include Solid Ground, The Millionair Club Charity, Issaquah Food Bank, Bellevue Schools Foundation, Kindering, and Amara. Through working with these organizations (and others), Tutta Bella has continued to defy the status quo and set a new standard for making a difference and inspiring others.
Said Tutta Bella owner and founder Joe Fugere, “In order to continue to create a meaningful business, we choose new locations based on a variety of business considerations but also look for neighborhoods where we can make a difference. Our current neighbors have embraced our authentic Neapolitan cuisine, as well as our commitment to work together to build stronger communities.”
