We are big fans of Edo's sister restaurant Mama Zu in Richmond, however Mama Zu is closed on Sundays so we were looking for an alternative for great Italian cuisine. We thought, why not keep it in the same restaurant family and decided to give Edo's Squid a try. our loyalty was not misplaced. The service is impeccable, efficient, and... More

This place is extraordinary. As a first generation Italian-American, I am highly selective when it comes to Italian restaurants. I can detect when the ingredients arent fresh &/or canned (which appears to be about 75% of Italian restaurants out there)... but, Edo's does not fall into that category. The linguine with clam sauce is delightful and the best dish on... More

This place would pass for a perfect "hole in the wall", but, once you walk up the stairs you are taken to a quaint, bricked humming restaurant. There were ten people waiting for the restaurant to open at 5:30-a good sign for any restaurant. A special deal with appetizers for parties of 5 and up. Veal with a lemon sauce,... More

We were in RIchmond for a few days and spent a couple hours researching dinner options. Edo's sounded interesting and was it ever! Upstairs over an empty storefront, tatooed servers and delicisous food! Huge portions and reasonable prices. Loved it!

In the midst of the VCU "campus", this restaurant has no atmosphere, a dingy entrance with two flights of stairs to the room. However, the food is good - homemade pasta, good selection of appetizers, limited selection of non-pasta entrees, limited wine list but some good choices. No prosecco and a very limited bar list to start and no cappuccino... More

All the other reviewers' comments about the intimidating entrance and shabby stairs leading upstairs to the restaurant are correct but what awaits at the end of this journey is more than worth it. We had a reservation for 7:00 pm on a Saturday, surely a peak time -- our table for five was ready for us when we got there,... More

As strangers in Richmond, we counted ourselves lucky to find this place, which we really liked. Be warned though, the outside is not at all inviting, even a bit intimidating - as you open a shabby door with no sense of what lies behind it, you see a steep dingy staircase. We almost turned away, wondering what we would be... More

This was a family outing with a Priest friend of ours saying , " you must come and join me for a wonderful Italian meal". He was so right the salad was perfectly presented with arugula and squid with some white beans. I had a dish of pasta I ate for two days. My brother in law had spaghetti with... More

It was my first visit and my last visit to Edo's. The wait was 1 1/2 hours, but that was our choice, and while our party of five was semi waited on by our waitress (we had to flag down other wait staff for things our waitress neglected to deem worthy for us...like a bread basket etc), the final straw...
