    My girlfriend and I got there at 6:15. We had made a reservation, but didn't really need one at that time. By 7:00 the place had filled up nicely and had a mix of different types of diners. We were dressed casually (polo shirt and khaki shorts for me), but one could wear a suit and not feel out of place here either. The food was tasty and had decent portions. Overall, I would go back to this place, especially if I could reserve it for a special occasion.

    My husband and I ate here for the first time and the food was excellent! Very Nicely chef prepared and excellent quality! The service was great, but it was not very busy (week night.). For us, there are too many chain restaurants in the West End, so this was a nice change and we will definitely go back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Food was delicious and well presented. Our server was attentive without being bothersome. We did think the prices were too high for the atmosphere. Diners were casually dressed in shorts, etc. Decor was nice but not for the price of the food. I appreciate the open view of the kitchen but not for the price of the food. We would return for lunch and try the caesar salad - it looked interesting.

    Menu is heavy on unique well prepared Italian style seafood with some Italian standards also. Satisfactory and reasonably priced wine list. Modern interior and quiet. Service was attentive and efficient. Location isn't the best. We'll return and do recommend.

    A real surprise and a find. Excellent, fresh, authentic Italian and Italian-inspired seafood is the star here. Everything well prepared and plated. Attentive service. The shrimp appetizer is a bit spicy but there's plenty to it-almost an entree itself. We enjoyed simply grilled swordfish and tuna with grilled vegetables and asparagus wrapped in proscuitto. Everything perfect. There are places like this all over major cities but, to our knowledge, no others in Richmond. Family owned but stylish serving Italian cuisine without attitude or kitsch. A local spot that deserves a customer base across the city.

    This restaurant has a wonderful decor and quiet nature about it. It is elegant, but not over the top. They have recently printed new menus, and the choices are excellent. It is not too large, which makes for easy service. I enjoy coming here, and do so several times a week both at night and during the day! See you there!

    I have dined at Pesce and Vino many times since it opened. The menu is varied, delicious, and reasonably priced. Of particular interest are the grilled vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, squash, mushrooms) which is quite good. My favorite entre is the chicken milanese, which I order 9 times out of ten. Its delicious, and reminds me of German schnitzel in the way it is prepared. The quiet ambiance makes it wonderful for a single person dining, a couple, or a group. It is not a large place, but well decorated. I have been for lunch and dinner multiple times, and I am sold. Finally, the bread they bring to the table could be someone's meal! It is SOOOOOOOOO good!

    Love the pesce du zuppa appetizer and really enjoyed the shrimp/salmon skewers as not in a heavy sauce. It was my husbands' bday so they decorated the plate for dessert which was nice (was hoping they would comp the dessert too but they didn't).

    I had not been here before but I was very pleasantly surprised at the ambience. It has a nice upscale feel, definitely not typical italian restaurant. Very nice bar area. Menu is full of fish dishes, some pasta, and few meat dishes. Appetizers were well done - I had the greenshell mussels from new zealand which were terrifc. The linguini pescatore was very good, and a generous serving size fit for two. Wine menu good and reasonably priced. Server was comfortable with the menu and gave good recommendations. All in all, surprisingly comfortable to eat there. I'll go back!

  • Second Time at this Restaurant
    LoisVIP
    Dined on 3/19/2014
    Although the food was still very good, I thought the first time was better. I ordered the crab cakes this time and debated doing this since I had ordered them the previous time I dined there. The first time the crab cakes were filled with huge lumps of crab. This time, there were some fillers and not so much lump crab meat. The flavor was still very good even though the texture was different. Not sure what happened, but did notice this difference. All other three people enjoyed their meal; one had the fried flounder, and two had the seafood pasta special.

    I love that P&V is in my neighborhood. The quality of the food is so far above anything else available nearby. But the service has got to be better. My first time there, we had to ask three people for the soup of the day. Friday night the server was just lacking. He could not get us water. He was disrespectful to the owner as though we weren't standing right in front of him. He did not know how to serve the wine. The restaurant has wine it the name, the wine has to be served correctly. It was really good wine.

    We had a very nice dinner. The food was good and I enjoyed the chicken milanese. However, the chicken was my second choice. When I ordered the jumbo shrimp I was told they were out of shrimp. It would have been nice to know ahead of time. Also, my husband ordered the crab cakes and asked that they leave off the sauce. However when the waiter brought the crab cakes they had sauce. Although the waiter was apologetic by the time my husband got his crab cakes everyone else had finished.

    This is a relatively new dining venue in the West End. We were having a birthday celebration and ordered the seafood skewer and the crabcakes. The skewer with salmon and veggies was very nice; the crabcakes were outstanding! We plan to return soon and try something else or maybe even the same item! We need to get the word out that this new location is a great find! Please go!

    Food was very good but if you are looking for a quick meal, this is not the best place. Since every dish is freshly made, the kitchen seems to run into problems when everybody comes at the same time. The food is worth waiting for though, if you have the time

    The restaurant was full, and it was good we made reservations on Open-Table. I believe the restaurant wait staff was overwhelmed and found it difficult to provide service. From beginning too end was two hours. The appetizers and entre's are quite good. The owners are wonderful people, very polite and charming, and are visible throughout. The ambiance is beautiful. I will be back many times, but cautious about the time.

    My wife and I have enjoyed this new neighborhood "find". Don't worry about crowding as reservations really aren't needed. The food is tastefully prepared and you won't go away hungry. We brought my boss and not that she's a fussy diner, but expects a certain level of server proficiency which seeems to be lacking, i.e. don't rush the patrons! However, the owners/management need to find a way to get more traffic in. We're concerned they won't have enough business to pay the light bill.

  • A Disappointment
    FoodLover
    Dined on 10/25/2013
    Love to try new restaurants & truly enjoy the compete dining experience. This was a disappointment for several reasons: the atmosphere was cool at best (room that felt larger than it was even with many diners due to bare walls, large space around tables, a very high ceiling & too few hanging lights that were too high to give enough light to read or reduce the impression of height). Menu offers very basic information about dishes, with little to no explanation of how food is prepared, taste, type of sauce or flavor and our server could not give us any additional insight. The food that arrived was boring, mostly bland and nothing special. Service was okay. For the total cost (about $100 for two with a couple of glasses of wine) way too high!!

    This is a relatively new place with a large menu of Italian seafood specialties. This is not your typical heavy red sauce type of place. Very nice selection, nice atmosphere, could use a couple more non-seafood selections though.
