- The food is terrific. In the capable hands of Chef Paolo and his crew, ribbons of hand-cut pappardelle pasta are tossed with a braised beef-and-tomato Bolognese offering layer after layer of sublime goodness, and a crispy-skinned breast of chicken shares the plate with cremini and oyster mushrooms and a rich Marsala demi-glace. Each dish is presented with a simple, yet eye-pleasing flair. – Martin Gravely, Richmond
