This by far the one of the best resturants I've ever been to. Dinner starts at 7:30 and for us ended three hours later. Come hungry and leave happy. There is no menu, just plates and plates of delicious food brought out to everyone in the restaurant. It's authentic, rich in flavor, and just perfect.
It's 10-12 plates that range from meats to fish to antipasti to pasta.
I have nothing bad to say about this place other than plan to feast, I wished I'd have skipped lunch.
I will be returning!
While in Richmond on business, colleagues told me this was a place I had to check out. I showed up hoping I could get a seat, having no clue that reservations are being taken weeks in advance, I happened to meet Ricardo, the owner on the street and since I was dining alone, he managed to squeeze me in at the back and the improvised chef's table. What an amazing, amazing experience. I got to chat with Mamun (sorry if I spelled this wrong!) who is part of the kitchen team, and who acted as my Italian-English translator, and see all the food being plated for guests, fresh from the kitchen. The food, all 8 or 9 courses of it, was excellent. Seafood, risotto, pasta, lamb, 2 desserts - all delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to or living in the area. Thanks to Ricardo and staff again for an amazing night!
