Certificate of Excellence 2014
Price range: $16 - $36

Description: In July of 2010, Chef Anna Vogel and Operations Manager Bethe Bowman opened Italia Trattoria, a lively, regionally inspired Italian restaurant in historic Browne’s Addition just west of downtown Spokane. Chef Anna’s commitment to cooking seasonally with the finest local produce and artisan products available from Italy and the Pacific Northwest has differentiated Italia Trattoria from any other restaurant in Spokane. The menu has an eclectic mix of house made pastas, meats and fresh fish, salads and soups, and breakfast dishes on weekends. Our menu changes seasonally while offering some of our house favorite dishes year around. The menu is complimented by a well-received wine list with a primary focus on Italian producers and some local Northwest wines. We offer a full service bar with hand crafted martinis, barrel aged cocktails, fresh squeezed juices, and the best espresso in town. Whether you are in the mood for our grilled rack of wild boar with sweet potato gnocchi, a house made squid ink fettuccine with spicy wild shrimp, our charred octopus salad, the best meatballs in town, or our city wide famous zeppole doughnuts or tiramisu, come dine with us.

Wow, we were really impressed. We have been on the road for a couple weeks, eating at good restaurants on Whidbey Island, Tacoma, and Chelan, and were staying just one night in Spokane in Browne's Addition. We were going to eat downtown and take in a movie, but decided to try the Italia Trattoria because it was so close. Myra... More

We love IT! We enjoy the food, the staff and especially speaking with the owners and chef at each visit. I haven't found a better Italian restaurant outside of Tuscany!

The flavors brought together in the salmon and the polenta lasagna were pretty amazing. The salmon was with potato slices, sweet corn and green beans, each with great flavor. The pesto sauce (because I ask them to avoid the cherry tomatoes seeds) was delightful. The wine list is small but a good variety. The dessert was superb. Our teramisu was... More

We had the carpaccio, very tasty and sliced just the right thickness. The capers used were high quality, not salty at all. Our main dishes were the meat ball and spaghetti, and the lamb ragu. Obviously the tomatoes used to prepare the red sauce were ripe and aromatic, since the pasta was so delicious! The meat ball was very tasty,... More

We drove from Coeur d'Alene last night to try Italia Trattoria based upon the TripAdvisor's glowing reviews. Our 35 mile drive was rewarded with a wonderful dining experience - great food and friendly service. The innovative dishes and the old standbys (spaghetti & meat balls) were all delicious and we savored every bite. We live in Ohio and only wish... More

In a comfortable no frills environment you have the opportunity to savor delicious food & inventive libations. This is not your neighborhood Italian restaurant, but so much more. In nice weather dine inside or out, and enjoy a menu of fresh seasonal dishes inspired by authentic Italian creations.

From the moment we walked in we felt welcome and special. Bethe was attentive to our children giving them paper and crayons. Panzanella salad was amazing, so was the boar and the shrimp pasta. Homemade focaccia absolutely perfect. My kids ordered chocolate milk and it was fresh and delicious. Made with real chocolate. Ice cream sundae with homemade salted caramel.... More
