“Always A Crowd Pleaser”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We took friends to Dinamo (again) and, not surprisingly, it was a hit. Start with a white pizza with mushrooms and sausage and you can't go wrong. These are the thinnest, crispiest pizzas ever. EVER. The rockfish is sublime. If you haven't been yet, you should make a point to go.

“Consistently Delicious”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is one of my top 3 places to go in Richmond as I have never had a bad meal or dish here. Friendly staff, fresh ingredients, seasonal menus, good cheap wine and lots of garlic! My favorite dishes here are the white pizza (with whatever is in season on top - ramps, olives), the maitake mushrooms (when in season), any of their flatbreads with salads, the rockfish and the eggplant pasta. But really, you can't go wrong with anything you order here. If you like coffee be sure to order the affogato for dessert. You'll be glad you did!

“Holy Moly!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Sit at the bar and eat anything. Really. Anything. It's all good. The service is efficient and friendly, the food is excellent - from simple pasta to oyster mushrooms over snow pea shoots, and pizza to rockfish - you won't be disappointed. A great little place with very big flavor. Every visit has been outstanding.

“Simply delicious”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

Tiny bistro setting beautifully decorated. I could stare at the floor tiles all day-so pretty! The service is immediately welcoming and willing to answer questions and make recommendations from the small but enticing menu. My husband had a homemade sausage and beans and I had an eggplant pasta dish for lunch.They were both simply prepared but perfect in letting their very good ingredients shine. The portions were very generous too so we got to savor leftovers late night! Coffee was excellent. We will be back as often as possible!
