Seattle Police say they are looking for the perpetrator who took a shot at E Olive Way’s Amante Pizza and Pasta just after midnight Sunday morning. The initial report according to police radio chatter was of a BB gun attack on the restaurant flanking the western border of Capitol Hill well known for its large, flashing sign offering specials, the time of day and the temperature. The SPD blotter report, below, says nobody was hurt but doesn’t specify what type of gun was used and apparently nobody heard or saw the shooter. Meanwhile, it sounds like Amante’s flashy sign survived the assault.

  1. That building has bad karma. Ever since the murders, nothing and none has had any luck there. It needs a cleansing.

    • murders? Really? I think it’s time for a history lesson of some sort. Can you elaborate? This sounds interesting

  2. Years ago – in the 70’s or 80’s – there was a murder or murders (how’s that for vague? Like I said, it was a long time ago.

    As I recall, it was after hours, and the office was located along Olive Way. Somebody went in the office, where they were counting the money, killed whoever was in there, then left. I don’t think anyone was ever caught.

    There was another murder down the street where that new-ish apartment building is at the sw corner of Olive way and Bellevue. It was a parking lot in those days.

    • wow, no kiddin!

      It has been kind of a jinxed corner… I remember Hamburger Mary’s finally failed in that location after poor performance in the Broadway Market.

    • I’m with you on this one. I actually assumed that was the case at first, and I wouldn’t blame them. It’ll take more than a BB gun to bring down that massive thing, though.

    • We won’t patronize them because of their ugly sign. This is Seattle, not Atlantic City. Such gaudy, tacky signs shouldn’t even be legal within city limits.
