Service was lacking and nit responsive to requests. Asked for both butter and sugar multiple times and never received them. Lobster Ravioli was good. Friend order medium rare steak. Arrived at least at a medium if not medium well. Had no pink or juices. Probably...won't go back when in town againMore

We got takeout with lasagna and angel hair pasta. The staff was super friendly and helpful despite being quite busy. The order was ready when they said it would be, but then the problems started. First, the paper takeout containers totally failed - the sauces...soaked through them and turned them to mush in the 5 minutes it took to get to our hotel so much that they stuck together and when pulled apart they fell apart. Second, the order was incorrectly done. We had asked for no tomatoes in one dish and got tomatoes. Third, the food was, across both dishes we had, bland. The angel hair had basically no flavor. The lasagna fillings were bland and the sauce not very good. It is a shame because i appreciated that at least the sauce wasn’t sugar heavy like a lot of sauces but it was watery and didnt have much flavor other than the pieces of onion in it.More

The calamari and house salad were great. Ahi was outstanding, fettucine alfredo with broccoli and chicken also great, blackened salmon was enjoyable. Chocolate chip cookie for dessert was OK, maybe not worth the price (it's large but pretty thin).

We went for the first time in Dec 2021 and had a great lunch there! It was hard to pick what to eat as they had many great choices. Service was quick and they were very kind and helpful. You must go!

There's not a whole lot of selection in a small town like Ellensburg, but who needs choices when you have The Pasta Company? Everything is delicious, from the delightful fresh bread and olive oil appetizer basket, to the salad and pasta. Although I was disappointed...in the meatball - tiny and pricey. Otherwise, delicious The portions are not big, they are right sized. You won't be able to clean your plate, unless you're a big eater. I liked the pace of service, too.More

We really like good Italian food so were excited to note this place is the top-rated restaurant of any kind in town. Ordered ceasar salad, house specialty creamy tomato soup, browned butter and mizithra pasta, and braised beef ravioli. Complimentary bread with excellent olive oil...started the meal. But after that, everything went way down hill. Tiny portions of Olive Garden-level food (i.e., undercooked pasta, watery sauces, soup and dressing, oregano and pepper the only recognizable spices). Staff tried really hard but were stretched way too thin. Since it's the only full Italian restaurant in Eburg it's go here, order pizza or stay home and make your own. Disappointing...More

Ellensburg Pasta Company was convenient for lunch as a halfway stopping point on our drive from Seattle to Walla Walla. It was August during the COVID Delta spike, so it was perfectly fine to have their outside patio area to ourselves. We had checked the...website and confirmed that gluten free options for a fee were available. Another in our party ordered the Chicken Panzella Salad which looked yummy, but I had a craving for Spaghetti Marinara which of course ended up having to be gluten-free rice penne pasta marinara instead. I could have added three (3) meatballs for three dollars but just paid the two bucks (actually 1.99) gluten free fee. Service was fine, their maskless diners (even though there was mask signage at the entry door) stayed inside which was fine with us, the food was good and prices acceptable.More

A friend recommended, and joined us at, Ellensburg Pasta Company recently. We ate outside, ordered a cocktail, and enjoyed some very nice pasta dishes. The service was good and the food tasty. A pleasant surprise in Ellensburg.

My wife and I stopped overnight in Ellensburg, WA and needed a place for dinner. Tried EPC based on other TripAdvisor reviews. Food was very good and prices were very reasonable. Service was great and the menu had many different Italian options. Highly recommend.

Stopped in for lunch and we were not disappointed. The service was good and the food was excellent. We started with the fried calamari and the portion was generous and it was good. Not the best I’ve ever had but good. I then ordered the...shrimp diablo with artichoke hearts and it was very good. Portion size was good. It was a bit more than I could eat (although I did pick out all the shrimp and there was a generous amount of shrimp) but the portion was not ridiculous large with lots of extra pasta. I would definitely eat here again.More

Nice place when we walked in, saw they had white table cloths in one dining room, we were taken to the back where there weren’t any table cloths. Guess we weren’t dressed for the part, yet I saw a couple of guys with T-shirts on...and baseball caps in the nicer dining area. Bruschetta was good, but needed more tomato, one small slice, the ratio of tomato to crostini and cheese was off. I had the Healthy Veggie Sauté with regular pasta. It was okay, needed something else, more garlic, some herbs… ? Service was excellent.More

Easy to find and parking was available on the street. The smell of garlic was strong as we entered. Tables were spaced apart. Our server brought bread and garlic butter. Oil and vinegar are on the table already. Both are meals were steaming hot. Chicken...Marsala and Chicken Parmesan. Good value for the price. Not really a take-out place although they did offer take out as many restaurants have adapted. There were families and couples as well as groups so they seem to appeal to all. We would stop again for a leisurely dinner. We would stop againMore

After reviewing choices on TA, I was able to secure a spot for late lunch here. One special of the day was Diablo Shrimp, a slightly spicy angel hair pasta preparation which was very good but not quite as flavorful as I had hoped. Loaded...with Pacific shrimp, definitely. Meeting the Diablo definition, yes. Perfectly cooked pasta, for sure. But I was looking for that little bit of extra tastiness. Service was superb. The dish was delivered piping hot. As a solo diner, I was in and out in 30 minutes approx. I'd like to come back and enjoy a different entree, and will attempt to do so.More

They, usually, serve parties of 1 to 4. So, tables are arranged for the majority of the patronage - i.e. to accommodate 1 to 4 persons. Six or more requires an adjustment to the table arrangement.
