They have closed. My wife and I went frequently. They had good specials and great gelato. It was in a great place and we dug the outside dining area. Their stuffed pastas were great. I'll miss my regular order of manicotti with marinara and pesto sauces in addition to the garlic cream sauce so that it looked like the Italian... More

Morelli's closed in June 2014. They had the best gelato in town, some very good entres, and the most bizarre version of carbonarra I've ever had. Nonetheless, they'll me missed.

Was hankering for some of Morelli's delicious meatballs. Guess what, they have closed permanently. So sorry to see that. Yes, is was a very small restaurant but they served some very big good meals. So, if Italian is what you are wanting, the Pasta Company seems to be the only choice in town but sorry to say they don't have... More

The food is delicious! I would highly recommend the spicy sausage linguine. It is a little spicy but so good. The amount of food is unbelievably large so be prepared for leftovers. The waitress was helpful in picking a wine that went with my meal. The is every few tables inside, but they do take reservations. In the warmer months,... More

We stopped by with my daughter & two grand babies. We had a lovely dinner, with plenty to share. The owner is present & fantastic, doted on the kids. What a surprise to find such an authentic Italian restaurant in Ellensburg!

Morellis is a great restaurant with food cooked from scratch, the old-fashioned way. With one exception, over the past 5 years I have always had great service there. If you have any problems, just ask for Mr Morelli. He is always there. Just visited in Sept, 2013 and had an exceptional meal.

We always hit Morelli's when we got to Ellensburg. Superb Italian food, but be prepared to be hungry, or at least plan on a take-out box when you're done! Family owned business and just the nicest people you'll find.
