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.

“Excellent preparation of traditional recipes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

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, and with good consistency. I would order this dish again without any hesitation. The red wine used in the lamb ragu preparation was obviously good since the sauce was done just right. The lamb was tender. However I would say the pasta would be my pick if I can only have one from the menu. The service was great as well.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

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 that we were closer to this wonderful restaurant.
