I can't believe we took this long to try this gem! The cozy atmosphere, coupled with the eclectic menu offerings made this a worthwhile venture. The black bean ravioli and tempura shrimp dish presented an incredible fusion of distinct flavors and the lemon pudding bread with blueberry ice-cream was the perfect dessert to complete the meal. Based on my last few dining experiences, I think it is safe to say that the suburban/country restaurant experience in Vermont now rivals the dining scene in downtown Burlington and in many ways, has surpassed it.
I would be comfortable recommending dinner here for anyone looking for a higher end dining experience with a very comfortable atmosphere! I was advised to make reservations and was glad we did, as we went on a Saturday evening and it was a packed house. So may be best to call ahead for "prime time" seating.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Richmond area. We don't make it here often enough, but have never been disappointed here. We recently had the Potato-Chive & Parmesan Croquettes and House Made Duck Liver Pate. The Croquettes were perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft, moist and flavorful on the inside. The pate was AMAZING... so creamy, just the right texture and consistency. For our entrees, we had the Black Bean Ravioli & Achiote Tempura Shrimp and the Scallops with mashed potatoes, wilted arugula & mushrooms. The raviolis were gigantic and delicious. My scallops were cooked perfectly, and the mix of flavors were complimentary across my plate. Not sure how we found room for dessert, but we did. :-) House made sorbet... cantaloupe, black currant and basil. All were delicious. The cantaloupe must have been perfectly ripe, because the sweetness was perfect. A great meal! Looking forward to going there again soon.

It's a cute italian restaurant that doesnt have much around it. Our experience started out on a good foot with a warm welcome from a male host, however night quickly turned and could not redeem itself, unfortunately. Food- to start we ordered the bruschetta appetizer which was a little strange. It came with just 3 bread slices (all of them overly toasted to the point of being worried I would break a tooth...seriously....) which were hidden underneath a mound of chopped tomato and basil bits. While the tomato was nicely seasoned in oil and pepper, it was simply too much and I felt like I was eating a tomato salad, not bruschetta...lesson learned. The bread that is served to the table was cold, which says a lot. I was expecting warm bread rolls from a place claiming to serve authentic Italian , but no such luck. Hardened bread slices it was.....The chicken piccatta was good as an entree, however, and the butternut squash ravioli were yummy as well. I didn't get the best vibe from our waitress; I cant really put my finger on it...she was attentive and pleasant enough, but she didn't have much tact with filling in the conversation/connecting with us. Someone else dropped our check at the end of the night, which is just a no-no if you want to get a good tip (unless you are extremely busy with many other tables, which was far from our truth. I think there were 4 other people in the place when we left....) Overall an okay meal in a semi- cozy atmosphere with room for improvement all around. Candles on the table would add a lot here!
We have had both lunch and dinner at Toscano's and loved it. Very comfortable dining room and the food is great. Oh, the prices are reasonable also.
love it, get the mussels

Super friendly and love having such a cute and sweet place in Richmond! Their coconut cupcakes.. Well actually all of their cupcakes are super yummy. Molasses cookies are my other love there. It's a cute place inside, about 7 tables to sit at. Want to try their shakes and ice cream on our next visit.
This little bakery offers a pretty sizable selection of sweets and bagels etc. I have been here a handful of times and the items are average to above average in taste and price. Good coffee and they also have an assortment of other Italian style caffeinated drinks. There are a couple of things I just don't understand though. Every time I've been here my experience at the counter has been different. I have been explained the same items in different ways, asked random questions, given instructions on how to add milk or creamer to my coffee in vastly different locations and ways, and been given wrong information on items. Every single time this happens, it's comical. I will chalk it up to new hired help. Also why do you not toast the bagels? The breakfast sandwiches are also cold. I can't think of any reason to serve these items cold. It's not overly difficult to toast a bagel or heat a breakfest sandwhich. The owner must know more about serving her items than I do. This place and the new Parkside Kitchen are fine establishments but ultimately they leave me missing the closed On the Rise Bakery. Overall though i would reccomend stopping in, especially on a cold winter day.
Stopped in recently and fell in love with the cozy interior and delicious treats. My one comment is I wish that they regularly had lunch items. Even a small selection of soups / sandwiches on house made bread would be wonderful. I was in over lunchtime and specifically hoping for something lunch-ish but ended up with a latte and scone. I inquired with the girl working the counter but was told what they had was what was available. Both really, REALLY good but a wider range of food options, regularly offered, would be a great improvement. No doubt I'll be in again, though - really tasty!
