I heard about this place from my italian Doctor. When we arrive on a Sunday afternoon the place was empty but filled very quickly. There was no one at the door but we managed to get attention from a waitress. She was a bit dry, never greeted us and escorted us to the table. The place smelled and looked clean.... More

This is a great little hidden treasure! It is tucked away out near Rock a Hock and If it were not for a groupon, I would not have discovered it! REAL Italian food! Wow! What a treat! And such nice people to take with. We liked it so much, we went back for a second round!

We frequent Tuscany in Newport News and when we found they have a sister restaurant we had to try. We were not disappointed. The food is excellent and plentiful. This restaurant will only get better as the view improves when the work on Walkers Dam is (finally) complete. Only disappointment was not being able to have a glass of wine... More

As an Italian food snob, incredibly fortunate to have such a exceptional Italian restaurant close to my home. No hometown bias here, the Italian dishes are some of the best I have ever had. My favorite is the veal marsala and my wife' is the lobster ravioli. All entrees are provided a fresh salad and garlic knots. Rarely does everyone... More

Food was fantastic! You get a very good salad and excellent garlic knots with your dinner. Portions are large, even my husband took some home! But it took us until we were ready to pay to realize (or be told) that they only take cash or check. Totally fine, just didn't realize as that's unusual so fair warning. We'll be... More

Out of the way, but well worth the search, Walker's Dam Grill (formerly Fox Hunter Grill) is a first class place to enjoy a meal. Everybody has their favorites here, but mine is Veal Francese ... multiple portions of thinly sliced veal in a lemon butter sauce with linguine. Have never heard anyone express disappointment with this cozy restaurant. If... More

This restaurant is a bit out of the way (about 25 min from Williamsburg) but it is well worth the trip. The food is authentic Italian cuisine and the lobster ravioli is some of the best I have ever had. They serve a large complimentary salad with the most delicious house dressing, which you can buy by the bottle, and... More

I have been here many times. Everything I've ordered has been homemade, and large portions - great steak and crab cakes. It is in the middle of nowhere, but worth the drive.

If you are looking for huge portions of well cooked Italian food with an excellent selection, look no further. The location on the Chickohominy River is terrific, we actually took a boat ride there from James City County with some friends. The food and service were phenomenal. The portions were too big for one human to eat so the six... More

This may seem like it's out of the way. Absolutely!!! Drive a few minutes out of Williamsburg and experience excellent Italian food for less than $20/entree, including salad. Lobster ravioli is excellent, lasagna is a huge (and good) block, rockfish when available is excellent. Nothing on the menu is subpar. For a treat, if you can handle it with a... More
