They had a varied menu. Not high on ambiance but food was good. We met there for a late lunch and business meeting. at 1:00. Moderately busy when we got there but nice and quiet to have our meeting by 1:30.

My son other rd the "fondue" as an appetizer. We received a watery thin chili con quest. He then ordered a salad with our pizza. Most restaurants deliver the salad prior to the entree. Hope, not here; delivered together. The pizza arrived luke warm, the mozzarella on top of the meat, and the crust undercooked. I can say the sausage... More

Fat Olive's popped up while I was reviewing a couple of other Richland establishments and it's been awhile since we've eaten there but we used to treat ourselves at Fat Olive's. We love the antipasto, best olive tapenade I've had, never been disappointed by the pizza and save room for dessert. A little spendy and the atmosphere is nothing special,... More

We stopped here to eat after wine tasting and ate on the patio under the wisteria vines, since we like patio eating we enjoyed our experience. We all got something very different to eat and everyone enjoyed their meal. I got the mushroom quinoa and it was tasty. The waiter was very attentive. Prices were moderate, perfect for type of...

We had dinner here on our way to the Nixon Frost play. The wine list is excellent, wines from our local area some known , some unknown. The food was fresh, flavorful and nicely presented. They served us efficiently and we got to the play on time.

It is a restaurant of choice in Richland if you are like good food.It is a little slow so if you are in a hurry consider. However, in exquisite dining one should not hurry in a place like this. If you are in a hurry go someplace like a hamburger joint

My first and last time. Facebook Menu for Cannelloni - fresh pasta sheets filled with mozzarella, spinach, and garlic ricotta. finished with seasonal vegetables and melted mozzarella, plated with a green salad - the price is $17. When asked about the salad I was told it would be $2.50 extra. I pulled back the pasta sheets and couldn't believe how... More

For a restaurant that prides themselves on food and wine pairings, they certainly don't know how to keep their wines. I ordered 2 glasses of different wines and they were served at room temperature, about 70 degrees, which made them taste hot. The food was average, pricey for what you get, and the atmosphere was non-existent. All of that combined... More
