"We had a hiccup when we first arrived, unfortunately, we were seated at the same table as last year, that was right next to the door and noisy patrons waiting for tables. We asked not to be seated there and requested to be moved to one that was open and to move another diner. We were told that they were unable to accommodate us and that we needed to request not to be seated at that particular table even though I wasn't given that option on OpenTable or when I was called to confirm my reservations. Luckily, we were approached about 15 minutes later and were moved to another table. Made for a better evening, enjoyable dinner where we weren't blasted with cold air, people standing over us and hearing other people's conversations at the door. We will definitely know better next year but glad that Stella's pulled through with our request.
Food and service was great as always - can't wait to try Brunch."

"Having lived in the fan and city for years, I can't believe that I have never been to Xtra's Cafe. Food was great, service was good and we can't wait to go back again to try lunch and dinner. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are large! Really enjoyed our visit and glad that we discovered a new place."

Richmond is the second location of Chef Mike Isabella’s acclaimed Italian-inspired restaurant. Originally opened in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Graffiato offers hand-rolled pastas, artisanal pizzas and small plates. Chef Isabella’s seasonal small plates are inspired by the food he grew up eating in New Jersey prepared by his Italian-American grandmother. With heavy influence from Chef Isabella’s Mediterranean and Latin culinary training, Graffiato is anything but a traditional Italian eatery. Roasted potato gnocchi, chicken thighs with pepperoni sauce, charred octopus and roasted cauliflower are a few of the signature dishes you will find on the menu. Much of the wine and beer are sourced domestically, and often from the East Coast. Look for unique cocktails, domestic wine and Prosecco served straight from a tap.

"Good food, service was attentive. The food was tasty, can't wait to bring the family to try other items. My only concern, we were seated at the front door and it was freezing and it took away from us enjoying our dinner - for some reason two tops are reserved in the front rather in the back or middle of the restaurant where all the action was located, TVs, bar and kitchens. I will make sure that we are not near the door, the heat was not working. Will give it another try to make sure that the overall experience can be correctly noted."
