Brave the Crowds and Try This Busy Italian Restaurant in Richmond

If you visit this site, you know we’ve been on a bit of a Richmond kick recently. Our first visit back in July was eye-opening, and our second visit a few weeks ago was, if anything, even better.

During our most recent visit, between all the biscuit eating, not to mention our return visit to our favorite Richmond restaurant, we had an urge to, I know this is crazy…eat something other than Southern food! I love pimento cheese as much or more than the next guy, but sometimes a man needs a break, you know? With that in mind, we turned our attention toward other cuisines, and we of course landed on Italian.

I haven’t experienced enough of Richmond’s Italian restaurants to say that Edo’s squid is the best in town. I’m guessing, though, that some Richmonders would, as the place was absolutely slammed on the evening we visited. We were not put off by the crowds, and we squeezed ourselves into the tiny restaurant and ordered a not-so-tiny amount of delicious food. Homemade pastas? Check. Huge pile of veal short ribs? Oh, hell yes. The meal was damn good, and it made for a great break from the Southern standouts we enjoyed elsewhere.
