We love this place for the family. Family owned the food is fresh and not like the usual chain restaurants. Large bar and wine menu. During the Christmas season a 'real' Santa and Mrs Claus come to the table to get the children and are invited to get a treat after they finish their dinner. So much fun and the... More

Love this restaurant! My husband and I go there every time we're in the Sandston/Richmond area. The food is great, not overly expensive and the staff is friendly and efficient!

We had a very large group here for a rehearsal dinner. We were shoved in a back room with two birthday parties and it was very noisy. There was only one waitress for two dozen people. She did a great job despite the difficulties like getting menus, drink orders, special meal requests correct, and we never got coffee although asked... More

I been to this restaurant several times for lunch, it a good location for groups. The food is good, the portions are very reasonable, but the service leaves a little to be desired. The wait staff is friendly but the wait time can be lengthy.

Firstly, let me point out this place was packed with obvious regulars, so it certainly appeals to a particular crowd. After perusing the menu, filled with the typical Italian-esque fare, my husband and I decided the pizza seemed the safest bet. Our calamari appetizer arrived as we waited, a mix of crunchy and soggy. The marinara that accompanied was far... More

The food here was excellent, I had baked spaghetti, baked seafood manicotti, fried calamari and the Pizza was pretty decent considering I'm from Chicago, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting this area.

The waiter was so unprofessional and clueless of anything on the menu. We sat without menus and our waiter asked what we wanted to order....? We didn't have cutlery and had to ask after the salad was brought. when we asked for suggestions, he said he had not tried most of the food and couldn't recommend anything,

The food here is underwhelming at best, ok for pizza, not so great for Italian entrees. We have tried it here more than a dozen times over the years, only because it was convenient at the time. Never been impressed. Richmond has so many great restaurants and, now, pizza places -- venture out and try them.
