The service was great! They were a little slow, but only had 2 servers during restaurant week and a new chef. But the food was fantastic and they accommodated us during restaurant week even though we had a Groupon. Will definitely be back!

I could tell our waiter was new but he did a great job. The worst part of the experience were the obnoxious fruits flies that we spent our dinner swatting at. It really took away from the experience. The waiter noticed and apologied but did not offer to comp our drinks or anything, which would have been nice. Would have been an 8/10 without the flies but they knocked it down to a 5/10.

The waiter was very well acquainted with all the dishes and recommendations were helpful. He had a good personality as well. The menu had a wide selection of delicious food, not your plain meat and potatoes!! The combination of spices and favors was outstanding!!

From Our Editors

Long before she became the owner and executive chef at Europa Italian Cafe & Tapas Bar, Michelle Williams cut her teeth in the restaurant industry as a hostess and a cocktail waitress. Ambitious from the start, Williams soon finished a rigorous chef apprenticeship program, became a sous chef, and learned to cut onions so expertly that everyone nearby would weep tears of joy. Today as a founding member of the Richmond Restaurant Group, she oversees a slew of unique local eateries.

At Europa Italian Cafe & Tapas Bar, Williams and her cooking staff blend dozens of Spanish tapas with classic Italian pastas and seafood. The restaurant's signature paella mixes scallops, shrimp, mussels, clams, and fish to harmonious ends, and the meat paella alters the classic recipe, replacing seafood with chicken, chorizo, and lamb sausage. More than 50 bottles of European and American wine—as well as housemade sangria—complement the dishes.
