Outstanding Italian food in a vintage train car to lend a different atmosphere to your Dinning venture. We have been here numerous times and it is always very good. The service is prompt, courteous, and helpful. I have had a lot of Chicken Marsala in many Italian restaurants, some good, some not so good but none better than what Monterosso's... More

I love trains so this one was a no-brainer to visit. Nice atmosphere, great food and good prices, pity the train wasn't moving though, or maybe they should add some of those special windows that Hogwarts Express has down in Florida!!

Monterossas food and wine pairing events are the best. They provide excellent food combined with interesting wines and a great education.

First off this restaurant is located in an old Pullman dining car. The food is plentiful and superb, the wine list is extensive and the staff pay real attention to detail to make your dining experience something to cherish. The only downside is that there is no way a disabled person could dine here due to there only being a... More

We really enjoy Monterosso's food and atmosphere. It's difficult for my husband to get to the front door since it's up a flight of stairs, and he walks with a cane. Once you're seated, it's great atmosphere and food.

The restaurant is located in a repurposed railcar so this place starts out immediately different. But the food and service are what really distinguish the venue. True Italian offerings, large servings, and reasonable prices all characterize Monterosso's. You will not be disappointed. And the wine list is very good too.

Great evening eating experience, The wife and i went for a special dinner and the railcar with its decor made for a great atmosphere, the food was excellent Italian. They have a fairly complete wine list so you can pair almost any meal with a good wine.

We had a wonderful experience and dinner here. The wine selection is very good though the "Conductors" wine list is frankly a bit wordy and could be summarized for easier selection. There were minor mistakes on our order, were caught by our attentive server and corrected straight away. The presentation was alright, not artful, but fine. Our food was incredible.... More

We didn't feel like eating out and our hotel recommended Monterosso so we thought we would give it a try. Major mistake. We ordered two pasta dishes (Lasagna and Capellini). Neither were very good. The accompanying bread was stale and tasteless. The side salad was limp. The only good part of the meal was the salad dressing. All in all... More

I think this is one of the best kept secrets in the Tri-Cities or even in Washington State. The restaurant is in an old time dining train car. The ambience was first class. They restored this old Car several years ago. We were able to get right in and have an absolutely delicious dinner and some wine. We were visiting... More
