Our waitress was really super and efficient. And the place seems really popular and busy. But I thought the food was just ok. My husband ordered the bruschetta, and the bread was barely toasted - still soft. I liked the whole-grain penne that came with my dish, and the shrimp was not overcooked, but the sauce was actually kind of... More

I've been to the Ellensburg Pasta Co. several times, but recently came for my birthday. The restaurant always has rotating local wines and beers. The food is always fresh and excellently cooked. My favorite is the steak gorgonzola cooked medium. Meals always come with fresh baked bread, and there is olive oil, basalmic vinegar, and minced garlic on the table.... More

Traveling in Eastern Washington state stopped in the town of Ellensburg, used Trip Advisor looking for a place for lunch found the Ellensburg Pasta Co. The November special was a wonderful mac and cheese with penna pasta, bacon and mild green Chile's, paired with a great Belgian beer.

I know Ellensburgers love this place. I'm sorry, it is very average pasta quality! The way I make at home not the way I expect to eat in a restaurant. They put tons of raw garlic in it which you might love or hate! so...

This is not fine dining but it is good overall, especially compared to other restaurants in Ellensburg. Very friendly and attentive staff. There was really nothing exceptional about the food, we expected it to be better. The food quality was good not great. Based on experiences at other Ellensburg restaurants we would recommend this place to friends.

Are here late night after spending all day traveling. Ordered the risotto and it was a dry glob, like it was cooked earlier and microwaved. Never order it. Had lasagne and it was just adequate. Same with burger. No culinary excitement here, not sure why it's so busy all the time? Service is good but nothing special.

Great restaurant. I was solo, so sat in the bar which has a full menu. Excellent service and a great wine list. Nice selection of Washington wines and local brews.

Felt like a casual restaurant with good service and good food. We had different types of pasta, but both were good.

The Ellensburg Pasta Company proved to be a fine place to take a hungry college student for dinner. The crustini was especially good and we appreciated the bread basket refill, the basalmic and oil were well received. The pasta servings were a nice size, not too large as is often the case, and the choices on the menu allowed us... More
