"Great for families"

Tutta Bella is a great restaurant for families. Although most everyone will be happy with the pizza choices, there is something for everyone--antipasta, salads, lasagna, calzones, and, of course, dessert. Great wine selection for the adults. Plenty of kids' booster seats and changing tables in the bathrooms. Enough ambient noise that you won't feel out of place when your kids are noisy. Courteous wait staff.

"Excellent pizza (and other food!)"

We've been trying out lots of restaurants in Issaquah and finally made it to Tutta Bella. Honestly, it's going to be hard to move on to other places- Tutta Bella is fabulous!  

We visited on a Tuesday night and were seated immediately.  I thought the tables were nicely spaced with room to walk in between and we didn't feel too close to our neighbors.  

We arrived during Happy Hour, which I was glad to see was available in the entire restaurant, not just in the bar. The HH menu offered a nice selection of appetizers and pizzas, as well as drinks.  HH menus are one of my favorite ways to try out a new restaurant.  We ended up with a meatball dish for the kids, a white pizza for me, and a seafood dish for my husband.  Everything came quickly and was very delicious.  We especially loved the pizza- the crust was nice and light, not heavy or greasy.  

Upon visiting the restroom, my daughter was happy to find a small stool for her to stand on that was tucked under the counter. It's the little things when dining with family!

All in all, this was a great restaurant with nice decor, great food and a very family-friendly environment.  We will be back!

"Hands-On Museum Kids Love!"

Every Sunday we try to go somewhere as a family, Sunday Funday! I saw a Groupon for the Connecticut Science Center and knew my kids would love it. I have a 7 years old son and a 5 year old daughter. There was something there for everyone, including the adults.

The first floor of the museum includes a 3D Movie Theater, which was showing 2 different movies that day. We chose the one about robots. The movie was included in our Groupon, otherwise we would not have wasted the time going. We ended up leaving before it was over so we could get back to having fun in the museum.  Additionally on the first floor is a water play area for kids 7 and under. We ran out of time and were not able to enjoy this section. There is also a Subway if you get hungry.

The next level includes Forces In Motion and the Sight and Sound Experience. We missed this whole level due to lack of time.

The next level has an area for exploring space. There is a real space suit and a moon rock. They have simulators that the kids (and adults) can get into and try to land a spaceship or lay down and see what it looks like being in space. This level also includes the Invention Dimension Exhibit. This is where the kids can become creative and build with legos. They can also race marbles through domino tracks or try to beat a robot at putting together a puzzle. This was one of our favorite areas. The other side of this floor is about sports and health and how what you eat can help you or harm you. I could not drag the kids away from the hands on activities in this exhibit.

The top level of the museum has an exhibit about CT Rivers and Maritime Animals. They have a turtle you can touch and snakes and spiders in tanks. There is also a Planet Earth exhibit where you can dig for fossils, see a dinosaur (who comes to life every few minutes) and a hurricane machine where you can feel what hurricane winds feel like. The final exhibit on this level is Energy City. Here you can see how much energy you need to make things work. It shows us how much energy we use and how we can reduce our energy consumption.

The price of admission to this museum is pretty high, which is why we have never visited previously. However, after visiting once and running out of time to see everything, we will definitely be back. The only thing I would skip next time is the 3D movie. Be sure to get there early and play all day!

"My Kids Wanted to Spend All Day at WonderWorks"

We could have spent many hours at WonderWorks. There are so many fun get-your-brain-moving activities. My kids just kept running from activity to activity. They loved blowing massive bubbles as well as playing a life-size version of Connect Four. My 4 y.o. also loved the oversized Wonder Brite, and the interactive computer games for pre-schoolers. There's also a big ropes course worth checking out, as well as a smaller version just for little kids.
