Best Italian Restaurant in VA!

This is the best kept secret in Virginia. This is the best Italian restaurant in the state. The quality of the food is outstanding and the servers make you feel like family. Definitely try the Bruschetta appetizer and the Garlic knots/

This restaurant is located in the Rockahock Campground in Lenexa, but it's worth the drive for excellent Italian food. It can get very crowded, so reservations are a must. Also note that they do not take credit cards, but they do have an ATM to withdraw cash to pay for the meals. I find that their dishes are salty, so... More

I thought the food was pretty good. The service was okay as well. Then we come to the pricing...to be honest, for where this restaurant is, I found that the pricing was rather high. Good nonetheless.

Went there this past Sunday for husbands birthday dinner. Everyone loved their food. The garlic knots are awesome, salad is great - served in a large bowl for table to share with really good italian dressing, but they didn't give us enough - had to ask for a little more. The hostess had asked if we wanted a booster for... More

I hadn't been here in a long time (they've moved a few times), but the food was just as good as I remembered. I had the Chicken Picata and my friend had the Marsala. You can't beat their garlic knots. Even the Italian salad they serve is delicious. Note that they only take cash or checks, though. There is an... More

If it wasn't for the deafening sound level in this place, I would give it five stars. The menu is extensive and the food is reasonably priced. Everyone at the table raved about their food. Actually, they did that as we were leaving because we couldn't carry on a conversation in the restaurant. I'm going to learn sign language and... More

We have been fans of the Italian eatery since it was called Fox Hunter's Grill. It has moved. changed names, and returned to its original location, but the food remains constantly superb. We always begin with garlic knots and bruschetta to die for! We eat here often, in fact they catered my wife's last birthday bash and it was sensational.... More

Excellent food, service, and views! Several items were worth 5 stars: Salmon Aurora, Pork Chop with gravy, Rockfish,...the tiramisu was out of this world!

We are local, and go to Walkers about once a year. Recent trip is like the others. Food is always very good, and always enough to take back. But seating is uncomfortable, it is very loud (due to 2 large groups). and there were some flies that kept buzzing us. The still do not accept credit/debit. Bring cash or check,... More

If there was an option I would add a sixth star. You wont believe it until you try it. We came in from NYC and wasn't expecting to have this unbelievable food on a campground. The quality of food is fresh and made from scratch. The portions will have you leaving with an to go bag. Thank you to all... More
