This place is definitely different. First, you need to go up two long flights of VERY steep stairs...not acceptable for the elderly or infirmed. The place is NOISY, not in keeping with the very dim lighting (bring a flashlight if you are over 50 to read the menu), and quaint atmosphere they would like to create. They have attitude! They...

Found while walking back from Monument Avenue. Entrance was hidden somewhat, but we'll worth the flight of stairs. I ate the gumbo. Some of the best I have ever been served. Excellent environment, great music, service outstanding.

we ate here last Saturday evening, and it was crazy and fantastic. it happened that VCU was apparently having family weekend, so the place may have been busier than usual. We showed up at around 7pm with no reservation, and ended up waiting for about 80 minutes before getting a table. There is no real space for waiting, so we... More

What a great spot! This place specializes in simplicity. From the unassuming stairway upstairs to the hand written menus on the wall to the wine served in plain water glasses. I enjoyed sitting at the bar and taking it all in. The kitchen nearby is a mosh pit of screams, hollers and steam. The bronzino was was fabulous and the... More

Don't let the stairs into the restaurant scare you.....once you get inside and taste the food, it will be so worth it! Calamari is delicious! Wouldn't recommend coming here if you want a quiet, romantic dinner! An intimate conversation restaurant it is not, but it's great for a fun family dinner!

This is my absolute favorite restaurant. They have the best REAL Italian food, if you're looking for Olive Garden type food this is not the place but if you want to experience how Italian food is supposed to taste you must try this place. If you don't have a dinner reservation, most nights you will have to wait but that's... More

This is a restaurant which is bit different to your normal restaurants. It had a very relaxed casual feel about it with very helpful, courteous staff. The food is a different mix but tastes excellent. Highly recommend it for anyone wanting a great night out with friends.
