More About Us

We are a privately owned and operated restaurant that has proudly served the our area since 1995. 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.


Board the train for one of our fun special events. Our customers love our Wine Dinners, Cooking Classes, Special Holiday Dinners, Complimentary Wine Tastings, Appetizers & Wine, and other special events.  Please join our family and treat yourself to a special event in our one and only dining car!

I ask my Hubby to take me there for our special nights and we both love it. Highly recommend it for the exceptional service, atmosphere and of course the stellar food. I always try something I've never had before and I'm never disappointed!
