Spokane restaurant listed among best pasta in country by Food Network

Some of the best pasta in the country can be found right here in Spokane.

That’s according to a recent report by the Food Network, which named Italia Trattoria on its list of Top Places to Eat.

The Italian restaurant is located in Spokane’s Browne’s Addition. According to its website, the restaurant sepcializes in “housemade pastas and desserts; sustainable fresh fish and produce; and naturally raised meats.”

Italia Trattoria is co-owned by General Manager Bethe Bowman and Chef Anna Vogel, both of whom have over 10 years experience in the restaurant business. Vogel has cooked in restaurants in Australia, New York, Boston, and Seattle, and has also worked at Spokane’s Luna, it says on Italia Trattoria’s website.

“James Beard-nominee Anna Vogel serves an excellent menu of regional Italian fare at her lively Spokane restaurant,” said Sara Ventiera with the Food Network. “Pasta only makes up a short portion of Italia Trattoria’s menu, but the options are all impressive, including pappardelle lamb ragu that is the house specialty.”
