“Superb Authentic Italian Food”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

This is one of my wife's and my favorite restaurants in Richmond. It is run by two authentic Italian folks, Frank and Marta Bussa. They can always be seen in their open kitchen preparing delicious treats. My favorite in the winter is the Marta's lasagan while my wife's is the chicken marsala. A great summer time treat for a light meal is the eggplant rollatini.

Their antipasta salads and pizzas are wonderful, also.

Be sure to say "hello" to Marta and Frank when you visit. You will feel at home.

“A family favorite.”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

My two kids LOVE the white pizza here. Must be all the garlic. The staff here is always so kind, feels like the kind of restaurants we used to go to when I lived in Ohio. Very family-run and enormous, tasty portions.

“My favorite restaurant”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Friends introduced us to this terrific restaurant two yearsago and and we've returned nearly every week. A nice range of well-priced entrees, homemade pizzas, subs, sandwiches, wines and beer in a light and welcoming atmosphere. Specials using the freshest local ingredients. The owners work as hard as the personable waitstaff. Great service and a great value. I have never had a bad meal here!
