  • Europa

    125 S. Wall St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-455-4051

    Nice enough to take a date or Mom, Europa is a good option for dinner or splitting a bottle of wine and ordering one of their appetizers (from calamari to hummus and spinach-artichoke dip). If it’s pizza you’re looking for, take a look at Europa’s 13 different Tuscan-style pies. The wine list is long, varied and features something for every oenophile. (July 2013)

  • Ferrante's Marketplace Cafe

    4516 S. Regal St. Spokane - South

    509-443-6304

    This family-owned neighborhood restaurant serves up true Italian style pies, hand tossed and thin-crusted. The toppings are simple, but chosen for their exceptional quality. Order the Palermo ($15.95), and we guarantee you won’t find pepperoni like this anywhere else. It’s thicker, with more spice and none of that telltale grease. The Linguini Pomodoro ($10.95) is light and flavorful, and in the winter, the Sweet Italian ($14.95) house sausage served in a chianti sauce on penne pasta is the ultimate comfort food. (July 2013)

    509-928-2303

    Authentic Italian family recipes from owner and chef Pat Ferraro, who originally hails from Casole Bruzio, Italy, make dinner at Ferraro’s like a quick gastronomical trip to Europe. Mildly spicy broth chock-full of peas, celery, tomato, green beans, kidney beans and tiny pasta team up to make Ferraro’s delicious minestrone, and the signature dish, spicy Chicken al Diavolo with peppers and spices, will make your mouth water and your tongue tingle.

  • Ferraro's North

    3022 N. Division St. Spokane - North

    509-325-7443

    Although the Dewey's Burgers and Brews name is no more, Ferraro's still serves up a lot of the same dishes that made the pub a hot spot. You might come here for a few drinks, but you have to try the hot, juicy, double-meat, double-cheese burger that ranks right up there on the burger nirvana scale. You’ll find a handful of other burgers on the menu, including a spicy jalapeno burger and the ‘Shroomburger, topped with Swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms. Pub grub doesn't describe the food Ferraro's makes. It's more like perfection. (September 2012)

    Roasted tomato caprese, ravioli toscano, saltimbocca, scaloppini di anatra. Or maybe just tiramisu and an espresso. You’ll feel like you’re in Italy just reading the menu. And owners Jim Lippi and daughter Jessica treat you like family. Gluten-free diners welcome. (July 2013)
  • Laguna Café

    2013 E. 29th Ave. Spokane - South

    509-448-0887

    After eight and a half years on Regal Street, Laguna’s owners decided it was time to move the cafe to a larger space, while keeping all the other aspects of Laguna as much the same as possible. The new location (as of mid-2015) on East 29th Avenue in the Grapetree Village Shopping Center offers additional seating space, a full bar, more parking and a bigger patio, while retaining a drive-through. Laguna's menu of mostly burgers, filet mignon, ribs and salads has remained the same, but there are plans to make some additions to it now that the new location is officially open. (July 2016)

    Pick up pre-made lasagnas inside this family-run operation on Holland Avenue or just swing through the drive-thru. There are five basic kinds to choose from, ranging from the classic meat lasagna to the Tuscan chicken (there are even gluten-free options). Don’t worry, they have more. Cheese lasagnas are offered and you can also craft your own delicious Italian dish. Just in case that didn’t fill you up, pick up some tiramisu or one of the seven different flavors of cheesecake (we suggest you try the huckleberry). (August 2012)

  • Luigi's Italian Restaurant

    245 W. Main Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-624-5226

    Craving Italian? Voted Best Italian for more than 10 years by Inlander readers, Luigi’s serves traditional Italian favorites. Although it’s tempting to fill up on the hot sourdough bread and garlic butter, pace yourself. Minestrone soup is next (why have a salad when their homemade soup is this good), followed by an entrée like veal piccata or chicken cacciatori. Need some gluten-free or carb-free options? No problem. (July 2013)
  • MacKenzie River Pizza Co.

    2910 E. 57th Ave. Spokane - South

    509-315-9466

    With a northern Rockies lodge feel, eating pizza sounds much more cozy in this Montana-based chain. Nearly two dozen pizzas are on the menu, with toppings like pine nuts, crumbled bleu cheese and mandarin oranges. Creative toppings rest on sourdough, natural grain, and thick or thin crust, including one that’s gluten free. Both Spokane locations (downtown, upper South Hill and the north end of Nevada Street) are spacious and work well for large groups and date nights alike. (April 2013)
  • Maialina Pizzeria Napoletana

    602 S. Main St. Moscow/Pullman

    208-882-2694

    Owners of Moscow’s Sangria Grille, a Peruvian-style restaurant, are adding to their ventures with the opening of a new pizzeria in the same town, Maialina Pizzeria Napoletana. The pizzas, made largely with local and seasonal ingredients, are cooked in less than two minutes in a wood-burning oven at more than 800 degrees. Other rustic Italian cuisine such as homemade pasta and Italian cured meats and cheeses make up the menu. To go with it all is a hefty Italian wine list that represents each wine region in the country. (July 2013)

    It’s all home-style southern Italian at this north-side dining room, with sauces, pastas and breads made from old-time family recipes. The menu has plenty of munchable appetizers to keep families happy, alongside traditional pastas (that you can now take home), pizzas and meat entrées (we love the garlic chicken). Mix and match any of their pastas and sauces for a new combination each time. They offer simple, hearty lunch options, too: Italian sub sandwiches, pizzas and calzones. (April 2013)

    152 S. Monroe St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-624-8916

    Little ones will enjoy the kid-sized spaghetti and sauce, at this family-friendly Italian spot inside an old brick warehouse by the railroad tracks. They'll also love the spumoni ice cream for dessert, but adults can take solace in the pasta with browned butter and grated myzithra cheese. Also, the surprisingly beautiful bar, which could be pretty cool if it weren't, well, at the Spaghetti Factory. The space is old-world chic, with a huge wood bar-back, plush booths, a backgammon tabletop and 10 or so inexpensive cocktails.

Their secret-recipe, homemade pizza dough is blanketed in sweet, slightly spicy marinara sauce and piled with fresh ingredients. (July 2013)
