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...

And yes I do but don't go there for your first date. I'm in Richmond a couple of times a year so it's always fun to try new restaurants. Edo's Squid has a straight forward menu and so far everything I've had was delicious. The calamari appetizer was huge, perfectly fried and a meal in itself. My friend had the... More

This was my third time visiting this establishment. The food was wonderful. It's a unique little hole in the wall. They accommodated one of my friends that has a ton of food allergies and she was able to enjoy a great meal out. I hope to go back soon!

I recently went to this well-known eatery next to the VCU campus. I may have selected a bad time...7pm on a Friday. It was packed...literally. In the inner space of the restaurant the tables are joined together so there is little/no space between dining groups. The wood floors make for noise from foot traffic and moving chairs and tables. Plastic... More

You won't believe it is a restaurant, no markings on the glass door that leads you to a flight of stairs and the stairway doesn't smell great--continue the adventure because when you open what looks like a broom closet door you enter the most popular restaurant in Richmond or so it seems. People are standing and waiting for a table,... More

My wife and I went here last Friday evening..the first time in a long time. We've dined here many, many times in the past but have stayed away because of the crowded and noisy environment. Unfortunately, that's still the case. The food; however, is as good as ever. Another plus is that they usually have a good selection of fresh... More
