    The food is ALWAYS great. We’ve been coming here for years and there’s always a crowd. The value is also really good. I think their veal Marsala is the best in town.

    I’m shocked at the reviews since Covid of supposed longtime customers who say they won’t come back b/c service was slow or they were placed on hold too long. Newsflash – there’s still a huge shortage of workers. Also, would you rather have huge price increases and full staffing? How about some understanding and loyalty. Plus, there’s always a wait so it’s your loss.

    Took them an hour and a half before we got our food. Incredibly understaffed and very slow service. The food is mediocre but there are not many other options around there. Avoid if possible

    Ordered pizza a few times and the bottom was burnt every time. Same thing happened to someone else I know, and seeing some reviews here say the same thing. Sounds like the person manning the oven can’t count and needs to invest in a timer or clean the oven.

    They used to be such a great family restaurant option, but was very disappointed on my last visit and hadn’t been back since. Today tried them again, and another horrible experience. Took about 10 minutes to see a server and about another 10 more minutes for my daughter to get a chocolate milk. Beer on tap tastes stale. This place is definitely going down hill. With so many Italian Restaurants in the area this is not on to visit. Don’t waste your time (service takes forever) or your money.

    Leaving a review because of a disappointing experience on Saturday night. I called at about 6pm to place an order for pickup and somebody answered but didn’t even give me the chance to speak- he just said “chiantis please hold”. He then set the phone down and I sat there for almost thirty minutes listening to people talking and hoping he’d pick back up the phone so that I could place an order. After thirty minutes, I finally decided to hang up and try to call back. When I called back the line was busy. I called over and over and over and it was busy every single time. I guess the guy forgot that he set the phone down while talking to me the first time, so their phone was sitting there off the hook for another thirty minutes or so. That’s a full hour that I was trying to call and finally after an hour, I guess they realized their mistake and hung up the phone. I called back again and somebody picked up. I placed my order that I’d been trying to place for an hour, and the guy on the phone told me it would be an hour and a half wait. So, after spending an hour trying to place the order and being told that the food wouldn’t even be ready for an hour and a half, I decided to just go to chick fil a. Great experience there.

    Chianti gives the vibes of nice family owned Italian joint. We ordered their speciality veggie pizza, garlic bread,gnocci and pasta. Portion size is decent so order accordingly. Also had their long island iced tea and it was pretty good. Staff is friendly and offers suggestions on request. Overall nice time and glad to find one more Italian restaurant in the area.

  12. Terri Kass 2023/10

    Wanted a simple, quiet lunch after a hectic morning. Chianti was just the place. The nicest server suggested a few dishes and then delivered a delicious baked marinara spaghetti accompanied by the tastiest foccocia. Just what I wanted.
    Chianti is just right. Not too fancy. That perfect home Italian restaurant feel.

    Delicious!

    We had a to-go order during the Saturday dinner rush. The order was not quite ready at the time promised, but the staff was very quick to acknowledge this as kept us updated on the final item in our order as we waited. The staff was in very high spirits and exhibited a good camaraderie which helped raise the overall atmosphere of the restaurant. The patrons seemed to be enjoying their time in the restaurant and the waitstaff seemed attentive. Would highly recommend!

    A little piece of Brooklyn in the West End of Richmond. If you’re looking for authentic Italian food, look no further. Entrees are excellent, appetizers are too. Try the calamari and eggplant rollatini. Pizza is the best in Richmond, and why not? The owners are from Bensonhurst where pizza making is an art form.

    This was the first time we visited this place and the food was amazing! Sid was our waiter and not only did he give us amazing service, but he also was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave some great recommendations! The house wine was good and the pino noir did not disappoint. We’ll definitely be coming back soon!

  37. Brandon B 2023/04

    Why is a restaurant attempting to be authentic playing linkin park? It was really weird and I had a rather considerable wait time to get my bill. Food was rather good except my pizza I order had really wet olives on it. It’s like they took some of the juice from the jar and drizzled it onto each olive. Other wise food was Excellent! The atmosphere was quite nice, but the choice of music was frankly bizarre.

    Restaurant closes at 9pm on Sundays, we made a reservation for 6:30pm, 5 people for a special occasion. The restaurant was slow so as soon as we got there the manager said they wanted to close early and rushed us the whole time. Food was good, but the experience as a whole left a bad taste because we weren’t able to relax.

Waiter couldn’t find time to refill iced tea in that hour and a half. The wait staff spent a lot of their time talking to a non-worker hanging out behind the counter.

  47. Sarah Braverman 2023/01

    The food is ok. Not great. But the reason I won’t be back is the disproportionate service received which depends on who you are.

    I guess how good of service you get depends if you’re 1) friends taking pictures with the waitress (probably didn’t think I saw that!) and a larger party racking up a big bill/presumed big tip, versus 2) parties of 1-2 alone where you feel like you’re just annoying them by being there in their way.

    I was seated right away and waitress took my order right away (although not friendly at all). My food actually came very quickly which was surprising. They seemed at first like they might be on top of stuff and good service.

    Then, I guess that’s when she decided I’m not worth a minute more of her time after dropping off my food (without any friendly word at all, either). She had plenty of time to go get chatty with someone she knew who was dining in, take a picture with them, take a picture of a group at another table for them, etc. but 0 seconds for me after dropping off the food.

    I tried and tried to flag/waive her down multiple times to get a refill as she walked directly past me repeatedly checking back with other tables to see if they needed refills etc. After 10 minutes (during which, as mentioned, waitress was present walking right past me but not stopping for me for a second) of not being able to continue to eat my food due to lack of beverage refill and it getting cold, I got up to get my own. She said “oh, I appreciate it” as if to imply “I don’t have time to go check on you even ONCE so I appreciate you figuring that out and coming up here instead”- again, not said, but her demeanor and response implies that to me.

    When I had to try for another refill, she’s like “oh, another” in a tone like as if to act like I’m way too much trouble for having to flag her down for only 2 refills, nothing else. She made countless trips to the other tables. Some people need more beverage than others to eat their food! I was never offered a box for my food either, and I’m sure asking would be too much work too.

    Like I said, if you’re a larger party or buddies/regulars with the staff, you’ll have a better experience but if you’re 1-2 people, probably not. Needless to say, my tip reflected the lack of service received and that makes a record low. 2 days prior, we left a very HIGH tip at a wonderful restaurant in the area for great service and great food.

    Solid Dining Experience! Quaint atmosphere. Started with a MOUNTAIN of crispy calamari, cooked perfectly. I mean a huge plate; couldnt finish it. Server recommended veal marsala. Did not disappoint. A bit heavy on the Vidalia sweetness but that’s not a critique. My son’s penne vodka was very good. No jar stuff here.

    So why not 5 stars? Minor quibbles: no bread offered (better for my belt line). While the salad greens were very fresh, with a variety of greens on the plate there was a dearth of other items in the salad…one small grape tomatoes on the wrong side of ripe.

    A great meal, my first in the Richmond area in nearly 30 years.

  60. Amy Black 2022/08

    I’m on a quest to find my favorite pizza in the RVA. On recommendation, I decided to try Chianti’s. I ordered a cheese pizza and as I carried it out to my car, the amazing smell of garlic put a smile on my face. When I got home and bit into the first slice, the taste of garlic made me a happy girl! The sauce was VERY flavorful, no skimping on the sauce or cheese. Both covered the pizza perfectly – and to me that means minimal crust. The crust was thin and cooked perfectly. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is despite the sauce and cheese being DELISH, the crust was a little chewy. BUT this will not prevent me from going back to Chianti’s. Their NY style pizza is seriously yummy!

  63. Alex Sotis 2022/06

    The food was just so bad. The brushetta was tasteless, the sauce on my chicken parm tasted like it was straight out of a can, and literally everything else we ordered was either bland or nasty.

  64. Ben MacMillan 2022/06

    I want to preface this review by saying this is a fantastic restaurant. Nearly everything I’ve had here is excellent, the service is prompt and friendly for both dining in and getting takeout. I’ve dined here multiple times since moving to the area and their pasta dishes are wonderfully executed.

    That being said, I feel like their pizzas need to be cooked a little more to prevent the cheese from sliding off the crust, but it is otherwise very enjoyable. I ordered the chicken piccata recently and while it tasted good, it was drowned in sauce and was rather underwhelming given the $20+ cost when I feel like I could easily pull off something identical/better at home for a fraction of the price.

    This is a great place to dine though with some things that could use improvement. Overall the taste of the food is wonderful, there are just a few small nitpicks here and there and while I will be a little bit wary of some dishes compared to others, it is a great restaurant to order from for lunch or dinner.

    It was my first time visiting Chianti. The Michaelangelo was awesome. I got the white pizza to go. The pizza a good but a little drier than I would like. The crust has a great flavor.

    We have been patrons of Chianti’s for nearly 20 years. The quality of the food never ceases to amaze us. They have also catered many events for us and there has not been one single time that our guests did not want to know the name and address of the restaurant. I actually, would not use any other caterer for an Italian menu. The service is outstanding and their attention to detail couldn’t be any better. The photos of the entrees they serve are dead on. The restaurant has a very pleasant family atmosphere. Frank and Marta are truly a treasure!

    Food was rather good! Enjoyed the chicken Parmesan with spaghetti. Pizza was also good. Avoid the house Chardonnay as it was very unusual. Upgrade to another choice.

    The best Italian in Richmond

  88. Brian Ruiz 2021/11

    Probably the best Italian food in Richmond area. We came from New Jersey where the food is excellent. This place reminded us of real Italian food from there

  89. KJ Slovak 2021/11

    Ordered from here for first time, pizza and calamari wow. Fresh, came hot. Was best I’ve had since I moved here from Brooklyn 4 yrs ago

  90. Telling You 2021/11

    If you want glitz and glam, go somewhere else. If you want good food at great prices, come to Chianti. They’re a reason this location has stayed steady even throughout the pandemic.

    If you’re reading this, come find out why. You won’t be disappointed.

    Although the main dishes were excellent, per the other 5 star reviews, the bar is mediocre. One of the menu items made me physically ill in combination with a drink that I had that was made incorrectly. (I cleaned up as much as I could, sorry.) Please be aware of your cocktail measurements.

    I ordered a garnished whiskey (1.5oz)on the rocks and then two fingers of bourbon with a salad. The drinks were served incorrectly and not measured– the coffee I ordered came out as tea and later told coffee is not served.

    My coworkers and I will not be returning together, but I hope your business continues well.

    This little classic Italian place absolutely delivered. The sub lunch specials myself and my husband had were wonderful but my kids were super blown away by the Calzone, penne pasta and the cannoli. Definitely recommend and will definitely be going back.

    Stopped here for the first time after picking my son up from preschool. They were pretty full except for the bar and a couple of tables. The waitress was slammed but the owner/chef waved motioned us to sit anywhere from the kitchen. He apologized and took our order. My wife ordered a gluten free pepperoni pizza w/mushrooms and peppers. I got the steak and cheese w/a side of fries for my son. The s&c was juicy and flavorful. Her pizza was very tasty and a great crust unlike other GF pizzas she’s had. The Stone IPA was cold, hitting the spot with the steak. We will surely make this a weekly stop after being impressed with their service, food, and ambiance.

    Don’t understand the hype… Average Italian-American food at best.

  112. John Cutright 2021/05

    Exactly what you would expect from a little Italian family operation. First time getting food from there (takeout), I asked for a regular dinner of baked spaghetti ($10 on the menu) and the woman taking my order over the phone asked if I wanted the “Chianti special” (didn’t see it on the menu) instead, which was a dinner order of baked spaghetti with meatballs, plus bread and side salad, for $14. The bread and salad were standard fare, nothing special, but a nice addition to the meal. The baked spaghetti with meatballs, however, was fantastic. The meatballs tasted hand-made, and it was a large portion so I got multiple meals out of it. Staff seemed friendly and courteous. I will have to try dine-in when the pandemic wanes. They will see me again.

    This place is very handicapped unfriendly. No easy parking. Steps to get in. Tight spaces between tables. If you have limited mobility or are in a chair, it would be a nightmare. Food was pretty good. Service was very good.

  115. Scott Hutchings 2021/04

    A common, American style Italian bistro with the same menu you typically find at this sort of establishment. You’ll need to make reservations over the phone if going during busy times.

    TLDR: If you like Carbonara, this is a solid choice. The best in RVA for me so far. But the rest of the food we had is rather dull, but at least it’s lower in price for this part of town.

    Drinks: Nothing special here. Normal selections with little to no craft beers or micro brews. Mixed drinks are OK but nothing you get excited about.

    Food: The Carbonara was suuuuper good. Tons of cheeses, bacon and flavor. Loved it. White pizza, was basically just cheesy bread that’s slightly burnt. Very disappointing. The other pasta dishes didn’t seem to be particularly amazing. But no one said they were offended by it.

    Atmosphere: Kind of lacking here. Just a mediocre bar/Italian eatery. Fairly loud, full of pretentious Short Pumpers.

    Staff: Mixed bag. Our server was absent a fair amount of time. Others leaned in to help. But not super happy with it.

    Got some takeout! We had eaten here once before and absolutely loved their Margherita Pizza. This time we went with Fettuccine Alfredo & their Salmon Pizza.
    Creamiest Fettuccine we have ever had! Would order this again for sure.
    The Salmon Pizza took some getting used too. I didn’t taste the capers, and it was a little too salty. Still good though! And filling. Will be back to try more of the menu. ❤

    SADLY WE HADNT BEEN HERE IN A YEAR. MY THREE CHINESE GRANDKIDS BEGGED TO GO AND I THOUGHT NOW WE COULD GO. OUR FAVORITE WAITRESS WAS THERE AND THE WHOLE STAFF WAS VERY WARM IN GREETING US. SINCE I WAS A FELLOW IN ROME, I CANT STAND MEDIOCRE ITALIAN FOOD. PLUS WE ARE ALL ADDICTED TO VEAL CHOPS AND THIS CHEF NAILS THEM CORRECTLY EVERYTIME. HIS CARBONARA IS AS GOOD AS ANY ROMAN MOTHER’S. CHIANTI COULD BE ANY FAMILY BUSINESS IN ROME…GREAT FOOD, DEVOTED SERVICE AND WARM HEARTS…WHAT MORE COULD I ASK FOR TO FEEL LIKE I AM IN THE PIAZZA NAVONNA. GRAZIE MILLE. BOUN AUGURI THIS SUMMER. LOOK WE ALL KNOW SUMMERTIME RESTAURANTS SUFFER BECAUSE OF THE RIVER, THE BEACH, THE CLUB, THE POOL. SO GET OUT AND SUPPORT OUR LOCAL PLACES AND ESPECIALLY CHIANTI. PIZZA AND PANINIS ARE ALSO MOLTO BENE. CIAO

    Referred there by my friend Gary. He set me up with Bonnie who is a great Chianti partner who knows her stuff. Quality of food and service is excellent. Quantity of food is enough for 2 meals. All this for a very modest price. Highly recommend this establishment.

  124. Wilson Dowdy 2020/12

    The food can be hit or miss. The bartender is not very attentive. You almost have to follow them just to get them to acknowledge you at the to go counter. Two out of the three pizza’s I ordered were burned black on the bottom. Tasted like mud. This isn’t the largest diner either. The absolute first time I was here to dine in, a drunk man nearly fell on our table. Don’t expect to be seated right away, their staff is sometimes preoccupied.

And after 15 mins of waiting after the order was taken the waiter came back and said they were out of the ribeye at 7.45pm on Valentine’s day. Beside that the calamari was good and salad was good. The Tiramisu was frozen.2 the veal was tough. Sorry to say will not be returning

    Ordered a pickup lasagna tonight. Second time getting something from Chianti. The lasagna was very good but the bread that came with it was burnt. Completely uneatable. It was black all over and should never have been given to a customer. Chianti’s needs to be more careful if they want to make a good impression and have customers return.

    Great local Italian spot. The food here is fantastic. In all the times we’ve eaten here, I’ve had the chicken marsala, baked spaghetti, stromboli, and pizza. Never been disappointed in my meal. If you’re looking for a cozy place with isolated tables, this shouldn’t be on your list. If you’re out with family or friends and want some good Italian food and don’t mind the close quarters, then put this on your list. Keep in mind they’ll be crowded on weekend evenings.

    Bought a 16” pepperoni, sausage, and mushroom pizza and the cook was heavy handed on using salt with either the sauce or dough. I’m not even sure why salt would be used. We felt like we were eating a salt block. It’s too bad because it had potential to be really good. Still searching for really good pizza. I think too many people settle for the taste of pizza in their area.

    This has become my family’s and I best place to eat! Especially good traditional Italian food. We have had the same waitress every time and she knows my son and how crazy he can for an almost 2 year old. I’ve gotten the calzone with added mushrooms and omg it was an explosion of cheeses and just so so good! I’ve had the Chianti special spaghetti with salad and breadsticks and I had so much food leftover that it fed my husband and I for dinner the next night. My son gets the kids cheese pizza or chicken tenders and fries and eats just about all of it which is a big size for kids! Lastly, the other night we went we decided to try the large stromboli with added mushrooms. Let me just say that none of us was talking not even my son unless we weren’t dishing the chicken and fries fast enough. You get your money’s worth and that includes big portioned sizes, feel like home service, always checking on you, and the food is fantastic! My husband even gets beer on tap called blue moon and it’s only $4 for this tall mug size, which he says is a great unbelievable price for that brand.

    PSA ❗️❗️❗️

    FB family and friends, DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT go to Chianti’s Italian Restaurant located at 1304 Gaskins Rd Richmond, Virginia 23238!!!!!

    My husband and I were recommended to go here because they supposedly have the best pizza around…So tonight I called to Chianti’s to place an order. I specifically asked the young man who answered the phone if the 12” pizza there a is the size of a medium pizza. This gentleman assured me that it was, so I decided to go ahead and place my order. 20 mins go by and I arrived and paid for my pizza. It wasn’t until I began walking out the restaurant that I realized my pizza was the size of a personal pan pizza and not what I was expecting. I go back into the restaurant and ask the manager Frank if he is sure that this a medium pizza and he stated yes. I informed the manager that my husband and I would no longer want the pizza after calling my husband and telling him what I see because it was not what I was told. That is when the manager decided to get an attitude and became rude and threw my money on the counter and told me in these exact words “to never come there again.” All because I wanted a refund. It wasn’t until my husband arrived and approached the manager that he wanted to change his tune! He even went to the extent to tell my husband that he disrespected me because he was upset that he had to throw the pizza away! I have NEVER experienced such HORRIBLE AND DEGRADING customer service like I did tonight! This was simply an act of racism and hate!!!! This situation has reminded me that no matter how proper I talk, how educated and successful I am and how respectful and polite I am, I will be treated like I’m nothing because of the color of my skin!! So I say this to you all, save your money and go somewhere else where you and your money are valued!!! If I could give them a ZERO rating I would!!!!!

    This little family owned Italian restaurant has been here l longer than I have, and its longevity is well deserved. It is not just a cookie cutter mom and pop Italian restaurant. The menu and specials have a great variety, and the lasagna is in my opinion number 1 in the Richmond area.

    Good food always!

    Showed up at 8:00pm Friday evening. Waited 5 minutes for them to clean a table. Host sat us and said I will be back with menus. From there we waited for 15 minutes as the host started to warp silverware. We were left with no menu no water no setup and no acknowledgement we were there. At that point we got up and left as the host looked through us as we walked out… it was a busy night, but that is no reason to not even say I will be back.

    Excellent authentic Italian cuisine. Great service. The staff and owners are friendly and welcoming. The pasta dishes are delicious and the New York style pizzas are mouth watering. Good wine selection too.

    This is the BEST place! It’s the BEST pizza. But even better, the atmosphere is so inviting and warm. You feel like you’re a part of their family. I love even just going to pick up a pizza because I get to go in there. Frank is always in the kitchen and always says hi to me even when it’s busy. Which is always! But not too busy – it’s always a comfy experience even when it’s packed. We found the place when our baby daughter was sick, it was snowing, and we were trying to find pizza somewhere. That was 9 years ago. We moved across town but still drove all the way back to pick up pizza front Chianti as much as possible. Now we live not far and I’m so happy about that. Many of the same servers have been there for years. It’s family owned/operated, and they treat their customers and apparently their staff right. Go there!

    Great place for Italian food, we had a lot group and everything was very wonderful! The wait staff was also outstanding.

    First and last visit to this restaurant. It looks like a neat family place and I liked the atmosphere when my friend and I went to have lunch here. We arrived around Noon expecting a lunch rush, there wasn’t one.
    We were served by a lady, never caught her name nor do I really care at this point, told her about my onion and garlic allergy and her tone suggested I should know what’s in the food they serve. Sorry that’s why I ask what has garlic and onions in it, you never know how much is premade in an area that hasn’t been cleaned for food allergens.
    Ordered our subs with side salads, she came back precisely once to refill my friend’s tea and not mine.
    Because she never wrote down the food order we were a little worried that it would come out wrong. Luckily it didn’t. The chef brought us the food personally because by this time she was seeing other people as it was starting to get busy. No big deal, until she popped her head up and misgendered me by saying he had xyz. So no extra tea, wrong gender… and then we had to wait forever.
    Except after waiting for about 20 minutes I had to track her down to get our check so I could go back to work.
    Like I said, first and last visit.

    Great food! Amazing service! Impressive wine list. Convenient location in the west end.

  212. Steven Lange 2018/06

    The best Italian food in Richmond and the best service as well. Great homie ambience.

  213. Midge Liggan 2018/06

    One of my favorite restaurants. Best dish is the salmon with red pepper sauce. Salmon is always cooked perfectly. My sister loves the individual pizza with salad and balsamic vinaigrette. Family owned restaurant with a menu that will please every member of yours.

  214. Theresa Dew 2018/05

    Always friendly staff. They recognize when you come in. Food is always excellent, atmosphere is cozy and you are never rushed. We love coming here.

  218. Robert Enloe 2018/03

    Every time we visit Richmond Virginia we go to Chianti’s

  219. David Connor 2018/03

    The scallop fettuccine was excellent, service was great. When I ordered an amaretto for ‘dessert’ and they ran out… somebody actually ran over to the ABC for a new bottle -and it only took a couple of minutes.

  220. J Parker 2018/03

    I’m a New Yorker and this place was taste of home. It’s very cozy and the prices are great, crust is thin and crispy. I would highly recommend this establishment

    Great as always

  222. Deborah Leininger 2018/03

    Without doubt, Chianti is my Italian restaurant of choice. Chianti is a family owned and operated business that serves dishes ranging from delectable authentic Italian farw to pizza or sandwiches.
    The atmosphere is delightful and the cost of the meals is quite reasonable. Servers are utterly amazing with attention to minute detail. Chianti is not simply a restaurant, it is an astounding experience from beginning to end! When I dine at Chianti, I always feel welcome as if I am at home.
    If it is Italian food that sates your palate, please give Chianti the opportunity to become your favorite restaurant as it is mine.
    Thank you, Marta, your family, Cody, Bonnie, Annabelle, and “the gang” for making me feel as part of the family!

  223. Janice Beacham 2018/03

    Good food. Summer Salmon is perfection. Steak delicious. Sauteed vegetables cooked and seasoned correctly. Loud restaurant when full as it was on a Friday. Server attentive and knowledgable.

    Great italian restaurant

  225. Martha Hancock 2018/01

    Tasty well-prepared food from this local favorite. Best gluten free pie crust I’ve tasted and other gluten free options, subs, pizza, pasta dishes, and knowledgeable wait-staff

  226. Josephine Cortes 2018/01

    I recently moved from Staten Island NY to Virginia, so you know us New Yorkers are picky with pizza from any where else, Chianti has the BEST NY style Pizza, The Best service and friendly environment. I highly recommend Chianti if your looking for NY style pizza and a cozy environment. Did I say the service was great? It is!! Thank You to Marta and Hassan for making my husband and I feel so welcomed to our new neighborhood!!

  227. Mehul Desai 2018/01

    Great pizza. I’ve recently moved to the richmond and have been looking for a go to pizza place. I think I found it at Chianti.

  228. Bob Long 2017/12

    I love the Sub lunch special. I especially like the steak Supreme with fries. Great friendly service.

  229. Ron Melancon 2017/12

    The most amazing Italian food in the area. Get the Chianti Pasta it is out of this world. If you like soup all the soup is homemade. You will not be disappointed

  230. Joshua Thomas 2017/12

    Coming from a born and raised new yorker, I can honestly say that the pizza ranks 9 out of 10 in authenticity for new York style pizza. Excellent flavor and thin crust. The staff are friendly and the prices are reasonable. New York style all the way.

  231. Andrea Jimenez 2017/10

    HORRIBLE SERVICE! First off this was a restaurant that is close to my house thinking it is somewhere I can go often! However we walked in, stood there looking for someone and told to sit ourselves a fine (should probably put a sign up). Then this woman server(older lady) – God forbit we asked her a question! She forgot our silverware, straws, napkins, & she got my order wrong! It was my mother, my son, and I! My son had bent one straw so we asked for another, instead of just handing us one she threw 2 on the table so we wouldn’t have to bug her if it happened again! She brought the food and we asked for napkins and she sighed so loud as if she were frustrated – like I’m sorry B! We were literally terrified to ask her for anything else! I wanted a steak and cheese and she put in the steak and cheese that came with a bunch of stuff I didn’t want! 🙃 I didn’t complain! As she was handing us the check she tried to be really nice and said my son was cute…… for a good tip I suppose but she ruined that early on! We will not be going back!

  232. Adam Balas 2017/09

    We ate here kind of on a whim and am so glad we did. The prices are a bit higher than expected from the atmosphere, but the plate sizes explain it all.

    When I first opened the menu I was a little surprised to see plate costs of roughly $25-35/ menu item for your normal pasta dishes given that when I walked in I really felt like I was in a pizza parlor, an upscale pizza parlor maybe, but still a pizza parlor. They even have a walk up counter, not something you would expect in a place with $30+ dishes.

    I was reserved moving forward, but I ordered the Chicken Parm, my wife ordered their pasta special (basically spaghetti with meatballs and meat-sauce which actually was only $14 oddly, whereas mine was $28 or something). When the plates hit our table it all made sense.

    The plates are huge, I would venture to guess that 80% of patrons don’t finish their dishes. And I guess that explains the price, of the 4 of us eating I think just about everyone took home about half of their dish. So expect high prices, but expect large portion sizes. If we go back again I would probably split a dish with my wife (though they do charge a $2 split cost which is a bummer).

    Good food and lots of it, just be ready for slightly higher prices than you may expect.

  233. Niki Lee 2017/09

    Our 1st time ..lunch was great service was good ..definatly be back.

  234. Jo Mart 2017/08

    Very very slow service.

  235. Josie H 2017/08

    DO NOT EAT HERE! Took them almost 20 minutes to greet our table and an hour to get our food. Waiter blamed the time of the food on pasta being gluten free (I make gluten free pasta all the time it’s no different) no apologies no management seems to be present. Other tables waited even longer than we did. Our food should of been discounted or even free. This place must be understaffed or really poorly ran probably a combination both. We came on in on a Monday…….. terrible.

  236. William Boice 2017/06

  241. Ann 2017/01

    A great place. The owners understand people as well as food, and the bartender will make you feel welcome. If you like warmth and conviviality with your glass of wine, this is a place to try!

  242. Christopher Soldan 2017/01

    Very friendly place with excellent food… Best NY style pizza in Richmond.

  243. Deedi Trabosh 2016/12

    Excellent spot. Good food, good service!!

  244. Anne Perry 2016/11

    My FAV dining experience! Great food, great service, cozy atmosphere! Menu offers many choices from homemade pizza to Veal Marsala and more. Top your meal off with a delightful wine. Family run. Take-out also available. Specials everyday.

  245. Adam Fischer 2016/10

    In town from Los Angeles visiting family (we are all originally from NY/NJ) and this is THE BEST Italian restaurant in the Richmond area. Great cocktails, fantastic specials, delicious pastas and gravies (ok, ok…sauces) and veal pounded thin just the way it’s supposed to be. I hear the pizza is wonderful but we all ordered dishes and were extremely happy. Will definitely return.

  246. Samantha Jane Marker 2016/10

    Syed was our waiter and he was wonderful! The food was delicious and even though they were incredibly busy they made sure that we were taken care of. We will absolutely be going back, this is our new spot for Italian food!

  247. Marvin “Jim” Leininger 2016/08

    This is our favorite Italian restaurant. The Italian dinners are wonderful. My favorite is the spinach cannelloni, but everything we’ve eaten there has been excellent.

  248. Robert Augst 2016/07

    Best Italian restaurant in the West End! Try the Spaghetti Carbonara, it’s amazing. We love Chianti! I lived in Italy for 3 years. This is better!

  249. Simone Warmolts 2016/06

    Seriously good eats! I tried almost everything the menu has to offer both lunch and dinner and its all good! Great service, friendly staff, family owned and operated!

  250. Mel Grimm 2015/10

    Food took overly long when restaurant was not that busy. There didn’t seem to be enough waiters for the amount of tables, so the waiter was never there when needed. I got a dish with seafood, and the seafood tasted like it had gone bad. My boyfriend said his dish was fine, but definitely overpriced for what it was.

  251. Erin King 2015/07

    Consistently “good” food. Not knock-your-socks-off, not “ok”, but good. Waitstaff biased toward regulars. Not overly friendly to casual customers, but always very efficient. Waitstaff had never seemed too pleased to serve children, but management has picked up the slack for that in the past.

  252. mike leigh 2015/06

    Twice in the last month I’ve had dinner at this place. The first time I ordered a steak medium-rare and it came well done. The second time I ordered a pizza for carry-out. The women on the phone said 20-25 minutes but when I got there 30 minutes later they had not started making the pizza yet. I ordered a rail cocktail which was nine dollars and when I got home after twenty more minutes of waiting the pepperoni and bacon pizza had enough bacon to cover four slices. Don’t waste your time or money at this place.

  253. Linda Warfield 2013/10

    My camera club met there for our pre-meeting dinner three times. The first two times the service was very good — they were set up for us and served us promptly so we could get to our meeting on time. This month they were set up for us but service was slow — an hour before the entrees started being served. Our waitress – same one each time – claimed she had no idea we had to leave by 7:00.

    The food is okay but not great. No one wants to go back.

  254. Nicolas Bergman 2013/07

    I love this place! Family owned and full of repeat customers. Some of the best pizza in town. The desserts are great, but the main course is so large you might not have room for it. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. If you happened to be disappointed, just ask for the owner, he is always in the kitchen and will make absolutely sure your food is to your liking.
