One great entree, otherwise meh.

Right by VCU. Check event times to avoid waiting. Place was packed before 7 and then emptied. Extremely noisy! Also, a few of the seats were flooded by the setting sun. No drapes on the windows. One entree, the pasta with broccoli, ricotta and pinenuts was fantastic. Our other two entrees... read more

This place was recommended to us by a friends and we have gone here about 4 times. Even with a reservations this time, we waited about 15 minutes, hovering over other tables while waitstaff squeeze by, whizzing about. We were placed in the center of the restaurant in tight quarters which we found uncomfortable. We had 2 bottles go house... More

Reservations mean nothing. We had reservations and waited forty-five minutes for a table, then forty-five more minutes for starters. When we asked for a complementary carafe of wine, the "host" laughed and walked away. The place is extremely noisy. Okay for students perhaps, but not for mature adults.

Went there for lunch with a friend at her suggestion...had a hard time finding the location as the restaurant is tucked away above another store on a side street. The atmosphere was nice with lovely exposed brick walls. Service was prompt and friendly. It is a small dining room with the tables a little too close together, kind of cramped.... More

Some of the other reviewers have mentioned this but it is important to note that this place is not easy to find -- obviously on purpose. When you find the building you will think the restaurant is closed and be wary of opening the door. There is a steep, dark, fairly filthy staircase to climb and then you open the... More

A little hard to find but really worth the effort. We came on New Year's Eve for lunch. Everything was really yummy. They were very helpful. They were very nice to our foodie 8 yr old. We will certainly come come back. Great food in a quirky place is always a good mix!

We went there on Monday for lunch and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food. We asked our server about popular choices and ordered arugula squid salad with white beans and pears (what a treat!),clam chowder soup and pene pasta with Parmesan cheese. All portions were big and we just shared them. Definitely check this place!!

We always stop in Richmond on our way back from down South as our daughter always has a different restaurant she wants to show us. She does not disappoint. On the outside you get no hint of what is on the inside. After climbing Mt. Edo, you step into the dining hall. We were greeted and watched the mountains of... More
