Ask anyone. I love the Olive Garden! The other day was National Spaghetti Day & I wasn't able to get out to enjoy one of my all time favorite dishes, due to the weather, of course.

Lots of places in Tri-Cities serve pasta.

Not just the Olive Garden. We have Casa Mia, the Impastables Fresh Pasta Food Truck in Kennewick, Fat Olive's in Richland, Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar, Bella Italia, also both in Kennewick, and Monterosso's Italian Restaurant in Richland, just to name a few.

According to the app Nextdoor:

Pacific Pasta & Grill in Richland may be under-rated. From Nextdoor user Greg:

Everyone in the hood needs to check out Pacific Pasta and Grill at 603 Goethals, Richland…huge excellent menu. We took friends from Long Island (yes NY) and they loved it.

I followed the thread and lots of people commented about the restaurant, which has moved from Kennewick to Richland. Dianne and Lisa plan to check it out.

And, Greg had this to say-

Yeah, they do a great job, lots of options, no problems in the 20+ times we ordered from them this past 18 months. It's good to see a successful business in that location again. They're in walking distance for me, it takes me about as long to walk there as it takes them to get the order together, so I don't feel bad ordering the extra alfredo dipping sauce... ;)

I checked out the menu and it's phenomenal! Plus they serve wine and beer!

Regional Fast Food Chains Tri-Cities Needs

As Tri-Cities keeps growing, we've seen more fast-food chains bring their food into our community. But we'd be lying if we said we didn't want a few more to set up shop down the street. Chicken sandwiches, sliders, deep-dish pizza; we'll take it all. These are the regional joints we can't wait to welcome with open mouths.
