Mossuto's Italian is a new north Spokane restaurant generations in the making, and honoring local restaurateur Lisa Poole's Italian heritage. "It's been in the back of our minds for a long time," says Lisa Poole, whose great-grandfather Giuseppe Mossuto arrived in the U.S. in 1907 from the town of San Marco in Lamis, located in the "heel" of Italy's geographic "boot" shape.

Lisa, her husband, Scott, and the couple's three now-grown sons have kept Mossuto family traditions alive, even if it's been the Poole name on the family's first two Spokane restaurants. In 2013, they opened Poole's Public House, a British-style pub. In 2016, the couple added a South Hill Poole's (5620 S. Regal St.). In 2018, they moved the North Side pub into a new building (12310 N. Ruby Rd.) in the Fairwood neighborhood.
