This restaurant has a devoted and vocal following in the community, so I was looking forward to giving it a try. On the Saturday evening after Thanksgiving, the place was packed. We had a reservation for 7:15 and was seated at 8:05. The noise level fell somewhere between laundromat and bowling alley. Service was cordial and competent bu harried by... More

Our exchange student from Bologna, Italy said that Edo Squid was good as any restaurant in Italy. I can only say it's better than any Italian restaurant in Richmond. There's nothing comparable to their eggplant parmesan or their broccoli rape. My wife always enjoys their seafood linguine. Check their schedule, make reservations, and get there early. It's not very large... More

The entrance is grubby and unattractive. The stairs would be impossible for anyone with health problems. The staff are friendly and overworked. The menu is mostly on the wall in rather small writing so you have to get up from your seat to read it. My husband said his duck was excellent. My chicken was edible but both dishes had... More

This place is definitely different. First, you need to go up two long flights of VERY steep stairs...not acceptable for the elderly or infirmed. The place is NOISY, not in keeping with the very dim lighting (bring a flashlight if you are over 50 to read the menu), and quaint atmosphere they would like to create. They have attitude! They...

Found while walking back from Monument Avenue. Entrance was hidden somewhat, but we'll worth the flight of stairs. I ate the gumbo. Some of the best I have ever been served. Excellent environment, great music, service outstanding.

we ate here last Saturday evening, and it was crazy and fantastic. it happened that VCU was apparently having family weekend, so the place may have been busier than usual. We showed up at around 7pm with no reservation, and ended up waiting for about 80 minutes before getting a table. There is no real space for waiting, so we... More

What a great spot! This place specializes in simplicity. From the unassuming stairway upstairs to the hand written menus on the wall to the wine served in plain water glasses. I enjoyed sitting at the bar and taking it all in. The kitchen nearby is a mosh pit of screams, hollers and steam. The bronzino was was fabulous and the... More

Don't let the stairs into the restaurant scare you.....once you get inside and taste the food, it will be so worth it! Calamari is delicious! Wouldn't recommend coming here if you want a quiet, romantic dinner! An intimate conversation restaurant it is not, but it's great for a fun family dinner!
