Monterosso's Italian Restaurant
Table Setting

All aboard! Welcome to Tri-Cities’ one and only antique railroad dining car. We are a privately owned and operated restaurant that has proudly served our area for over twelve years. We are committed to providing you with creative and flavorful dishes both traditional and beyond. In 1994 we took over this 1947 vintage Pullman dining car. After its glory days as an elegant railroad diner, this car had been retired from duty and was resting on dead tracks in St. Paul, Minnesota. It was brought to life again in 1971 when it was moved to Richland, Washington and converted into a respected tailor’s abode. In April of 1995 after six long months of dutiful restoration by our own “train gang”, Monterosso’s Italian Restaurant boarded its first guests. Today, our chefs, managers and servers make it a personal challenge to make your dining experience delectable and enjoyable. As many of you may know, Monterosso is Italian for “Red Mountain”, just like our own Red Mountain here in the Tri-Cities. The name was chosen by owner, Aaron Burks, after one of his favorite cities on the Northern Italian coast. Monterosso is a beautiful pastel town situated on the rocky coast of the Italian Riviera and is known for its delectable sweet basil and scenic coastal views.

In February of 1997 we continued our commitment to providing you with unique and quality dining experiences by opening the Atomic Ale Brewpub & Eatery, Tri-Cities’ first brewpub. At Atomic we brew and serve high-quality hand-crafted beer complemented with Tri-Cities’ first wood-fired stone oven gourmet pizza, as well as sandwiches, salads, steaks and seafood. Please join us across the street for the best beer and pizza in town!
