Food was full of spectacular flavors. Everything fresh and spot on. Service was 6 stars and u can only give 5. Great brunch experience. When full it can be a little loud but brunch isn't a romantic meal time so no worries. I think best brunch in town. Great for foodies, reminds me of Portland bistro scene.

Overall it was a great place, with great food and pretty good service. I would have given 5 stars, however, we were to asked to leave by the hostess "people were looking at her" because there wasn't a table available. Although we made reservations ourselves, we did not realize there was a time limit to our dining. We had drinks, full dinners, dessert and after dinner drinks.

Dinner at Italia Trattoria is great choice. Every time. We've dined here many times over the years and have never had a bad meal. Or bad service. A real gem in a Spokane dining scene that's still trying to get itself together. We bring colleagues, good friends from out of town, and job candidates here for meals.
The setup: Get yourself a reservation via Open Table. Always. It makes things easier as this is a smaller, neighborhood restaurant that's regularly packed.
The food and drink: The lamb tongue is an excellent starter. The rabbit ravioli main is rich, but paired well with a Claret, as did the lamb chop main. The tiramisu is a classic and a fun dessert to share. Definitely get a Figgy Manhattan to start your experience. Didn't have it this time, but the wild boar main is always good, as is the lamb ragu.
The service: Excellent! Anne is our favorite server, whether it's brunch or dinner. She's very personable and a consummate professional.
The owners: Bethe is frequently front of house and she's so kind and attentive. Anna was recently named a James Beard Semifinalist for Best Chef Northwest and our wonderful experiences at Italia confirm that honor.
My only wish for the future: Is that they'd do a special dinner (like Quince in SF) when it is white truffle season.

How lucky we are in Spokane to have such a fantastic restaurant run by true professionals. Everyone was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. We had the best meal we had had in years. The Gnocchi was tremendous. My pork chop has been occupying much of my conversations, to my husbands dismay. Can’t recommend enough

The food was outstanding from starters right through to dessert. Our waitress Tina really made the night. It was our first time there and she was a perfect host--engaging enough but not butting in. What a great find. We drive down from Canada and will definitely be eating more dinners at Italia for sure.

Quail was great. Also tried the boar, which was really good, too. Asked for no dairy and it was handled with no hesitation -which isn’t necessarily easy in an Italian joint. Service was perfect.

Absolutely delicious! My party and I made sure to get completely different dishes to maximize the number we could try! Although we all liked ours so much we didn't want to share more than one bite! I had the pork hash that was wonderful, and the spaghetti and meatballs. Looking forward to visiting Italia for dinner.

Love the neighborhood feel, almost a Stammtisch (German for "our place, our table") concept. The casual ambience belies the professional attitude toward the food served. It was lovely Friday to sit at our cosy table and watch the snow drifting down outside the windows.

My husband and I started dinner with the Beef Carpaccio and a nice bottle of Italian red. Then we had the Harvest salad and the Stuffed Quail. No room for dessert even though we were tempted. Each item was full of wonderful flavors. The waitstaff is always welcoming and knowledgeable. This is our go to restaurant. We have never been disappointed.

We liked everything except being seated by the window which was cold. However, the ambiance in the restaurant is wonderful. We especially noticed that everyone there was gaily involved in what seemed like interesting and fun filled conversations. No phones in evidence!

Have been to Italia several occasions. We were with another couple and overall everything was wonderful. The reason I didn’t give it five stars on food was because of the so called focaccia. This should be called white bread with a sprinkle of sea salt. Not remotely related to focaccia! This time worse than ever.

Wonderful food only disappointment was a $25.00 corkage fee. Now some of us that have thousands invested in premium wines do not expect to go to a neighborhood restaurant with a Seattle corkage fee. If you go be advised of that or just order drinks off the menu Partially my fault I should have asked but I do not think that fee is appropriate for the ambiance. This is not Churchill’s or the Metropolitan grill. I will say the food was 100% on point so I will not take that away from them

Whike we live in the neighborhood and go there often, this reservation was used by our B&B guests from Mazama. They raced about it, as we anticipated. The man was flabbergasted by rabbit ravioli, and a really good wine, and the Missus was raving about the Mahi mahi (with a pomegranate garnish maybe?). They loved their oyster appetizer, and sorbet dessert.
Just as we ourselves always do, our guests had a lovely experience! Thank you, Anna and Beth and all the Trattoria Team, for all you put into making each visit a marvellous , personalized experience for us! Gillian and Louie, 1899 House B&B

We have been going to Italia Trattoria for many years and they never disappoint. Last night was our first dinner there in awhile. The attention to detail is phenomenal, the flavors complex and complimentary, the service top notch. Dining at an owner occupied restaurant is most always a sure bet. Locally sourced foods are the icing on the cake, IMHO!
