Summary

“You never know what you’re going to eat” at this no-choice Italian feast in Richmond, which has built a loyal following over the last decade. “More than a restaurant, it feels like a holiday in Italy, where you’re eating at Nonna’s home”. Chef Riccardo Grigolo and his team “are so welcoming” and deliver a lengthy Venetian-style meal – “fantastic food that just keeps on coming” and where “every course is delicious”.
