We dined here while in Richmond due to positive tripadvisor reviews. While the place is dated and in a strange location, the food seemed authentic and the wait staff, although casual, was friendly and attentive. The deluxe salad we shared first (even the small was huge) was wonderful, Italian style and very fresh, and the house vinaigrette was the best we've had in a restaurant in years. From the entree menu, we ordered two "Giosue" (named for the owner) dishes, one from the House Specialties and the other from the Meat selections. While the spaghetti baked with meatball, sausage, meat sauce, and cheese (hosue specialty) was delicious, the veal and shrimp from the meat menu was overcooked and tough. The latter dish, which included a delicious fra diavolo sauce, would have benefitted from being served over spaghetti (to complement the abundant amount of sauce) rather than with a side dish of spaghetti served with a different (and not too compatible) sauce. The barbera barolo wine was very good and the dessert selections looked very enticing (particularly the lemon and orange gelato served in the real fruits) even though we had no room to try them.
