“Fine italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We go here at least twice a month for dinner. The specials and soup are great. I especially recommend the osso boco and mats pork loin. There lasagna is one of the best in the cities. Also every other tuesday the owner aaron will come to your table with a selection of three wines to taste. The atmospher is unusual in that the dinner us an old RR dining car. The service here is usually top notch and they remember their customers mames which makes us fell like we are family here. This is a should try restaurant. Theh are also open during the week for lunch. They have a nice selection of pinnis as well as some of their dinner favorites.

“Unique fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Gourmet goodies in a very intimate setting...an old railway car. Nice wine list. The walnut tortellini is really yummy.

“Favorite Italian spot in Richland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Monterosso's is one of my favorite spots in Richland. Great food, friendly staff, great wines and occasional wine tasting. Tuesday nights they do wine tasting wjich has always yeilded a selection for the evening. It is a small, intimate place. Great for couples or groups up to four. Nit a great place for kids. I have never been disappointed, nor have my guests.

“Italian at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

This is quite simply the best Italian restaurant in the Tri-Cities. It is located in a restored train dining car and offers a quiet and fun atmosphere. The veal dishes are always excellent, and the fettucine alla romanna with Italian sausage is one of the best dishes I’ve had anywhere. Monterosso's offers an excellent selection of wines, and the staff is always cheerful and willing to help match wines to your meal selections. While the restaurant is a little difficult to find on your first try (it sits behind another restaurant a bit off of the city street) once you dine at Monterosso's you are sure to want to return regularly.

“Definitely a good choice for dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

What a quaint and delicious resturant. It sets back off the street and was hard to fine but worth the search. The sauces used were excellent. The breads served before our meals were so good! The staff was excellent. Definetly better than the popular itailian chains you find in every city! It was a refreshing change!
