Mamma Mia! These are Tri-Cities Most Outstanding Italian Restaurants…
Do you enjoy Italian food?
In the Tri-Cities area, we're really fortunate to have quite a few Italian restaurants. Although, we did lose a Kennewick favorite when Carmine's closed their doors in December-2019.
Whether you reside in Pasco, Kennewick, Richland, or anywhere in between, when it comes to Italian fare, there are a few places you can visit. Some are family-friendly. Some are perfect for a date.
We've compiled a list of the 8 best Italian restaurants in Tri-Cities.
Most Outstanding Italian Restaurants in Tri-Cities
Caio Trattoria in Pasco came on the scene not too long ago, with a pretty interesting story.
Have you been to any of the above restaurants? Which is your favorite?
Truthfully, I've only been to Olive Garden and Casa Mia, so I'm looking forward to visiting all the other Italian restaurants. I'm not picky when it comes to pasta. And, I prefer spaghetti!
Who doesn't enjoy a high-piling plate of spaghetti with sauce?
It doesn't even matter what kind of sauce. While I, personally enjoy a meat sauce, some just prefer sauce, with no meat. Red sauce or alfredo and so many options.
One restaurant we don't have in Tri-Cities is Fazoli's.
Years ago, while living in South Bend, IN, Fazoli's was my favorite go-to restaurant. It's sort of like a fast-food Olive Garden. You choose your pasta, sauce, pizza, salad, whatever. And, they have wonderful breadsticks. I do wish we had a Fazoli's in Tri-Cities.
We do have a lot of restaurants (not just Italian) that serve some pretty fantastic pasta dishes, too.
