This is one of our favorite dining spots in Richmond. The food is really good and very consistent. The chicken Alfredo is a favorite of all. The restaurant is in an old home with intimate dining areas in different rooms of the home, many with fireplaces. Beautiful decor in all areas. Great service and locally owned. Always a good choice... More

love the food and the service was great. it's kind of a quaint restaurant, maybe a little update would improve some ambiance, but the food is delicious.....my favorite thing was the Shrimp Bianca. if you are in the Richmond area, stop in and have a good meal.

Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about menu and able to advise us in a very informative and pleasant manner. We had 7 in our party and ordered a variety of menu items including vegetarian, fish,... More

The restaurant is located just off the center of Richmond. The interior has a nice nostalgic decor. The dining is more formal and the prices are above average. They do have outdoor dining available.
