Good Italian Food

Wait staff was friendly, the food was good with large portions. This is located in a campground area which is a little unusual. Also the decor was also dated and the layout was unusual.

If you want a great meal at a great price go to the dam grill. You will not go home hungry. Small place with local people. I live here in Newkent and we go every chance we get.

We have eaten here for many years. Our wedding reception was held here 10 years ago. The food is fresh, delicious and the service is excellent! It is hard to believe that a restaurant as awesome as this is so close to our home. We always recommend them highly.

As with any Italian dish, it's always more than you should eat, but you can't help it. Has a real family feel to the restaurant. Great seats that look out over the Chickahominy River.

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
