Great place for Italian food: Tappi.
The restaurant is in a very small town in the heart of cross country skiing and hiking areas of Eastern Washington. It’s always nice to have a little variety in food choice and this is a great spot for that.
John, the owner and chef, is very gracious and story has it that the recipes are from his mother, Emma…she must have been a phenomenal cook! it is cozy and made more so by the intimate space. Best choices are the pizzas which are done with expertise in a wood fired pizza oven. Two must tries, if on the menu, are the bucatini with polpette melanzane (bucatini with eggplant “meatballs”…outstanding) and the Blue Star XX espresso ice cream.
The wine list isn’t extensive but there are good examples from most areas of Italy.
It’s the best Italian food in the area and one of the best in the State. A must stop if you are anywhere near Twisp. Check ahead for times since he is not open every night.
